Oh my! What in the world is going on with this last place vagabond fowl team we call the Hawks?

Sub goalies Kirk Larson and Rick “Ticker” Chauvin have acquired a noticeable nervous tick as they keep looking behind themselves, aggravating Ticker’s wife Carol to no end! “Stop subbing for that Hawks team – it’s not healthy” Carol tells Ticker! Flyers – The league’s leading scorer Mr. Mike Ala with a 4 goal game! John Zuccarini with the trick. Singles for Gary Enmark(Also 3 Helpers), Pat Collins(With 4 Helpers) and Al Platt.
