Char-Lan won its home-ice finale Tuesday night against the very same Hawks, rebounding from a two-goal deficit to score five unanswered and extend the Rebels winning streak to four games.
Despite skating hard and carrying the play through the first period of their February 25 contest at the Char-Lan Rec. Centre, the Rebels found themselves trailing 1-0 at the first intermission.
At the 5:20 mark of the second stanza, Winchester scored again, but the Hawks would be shut down from that point onward.
Late in the period, with 1:25 left, Alexandre Elie got Char-Lan on the board, assisted by Ryan Grant and Isaac Testani. Thirty-five seconds later, Cuyler Molinaro potted the equalizer, set up by Elie and Parker Tallman.
The Rebels took control in the third, as Noah Konink scored a natural hat trick. Assists went to Testani (2), Elie, Paul Waldhauser, Justice Brownlee, and Tallman.
Goaltender Summy Mughal started the game, switching at the midpoint with Ceili Picard. Together, they combined for 27 saves, while Char-Lan snipers had 33 shots at the Winchester net.
Konink, with his three goals, was named the game’s first star. Testani, with three assists, was tagged as second star.
Char-Lan went three-for-six on the power play, while the Rebels penalty killers grounded the Hawks through seven opportunities.
