Shorthanded Nighthawks keep perfect season alive

The Nighthawks won yet again despite missing their starting goalie, defensive phenom Travis Feravich, and Ariel Dews. The team responded by bringing up Jordan "Popapalooza" Hendricks from the minors, and putting Andrew Willis on defense for the second straight week. This worked well again for the Nighthawks who improved to 3-0 on the season, and got their first win against Los Hooligans. This 9-5 win was a hard-fought battle. At the half it was 4-1 thanks to two goals by Sherif and another one by Veronica. Both the number one offense and defense in the league seemed to slow down a little as before too long the score was 6-5 in favor of the Nighthawks. Sherif scored his fifth goal of the night with a little over 10 minutes left in the game. Another goal by Leanne and shutdown defense of the Nighthawks iced the game. Mike Roos won his first game in goal as he stopped 66 percent of the shots he faced. He will have to play just as well next week as Luke Bahrou will miss his second game in a row. On the bright side, Travis Feravich will be back to help out the number one defense in the league.
