Recap of Hawks ECNL weekend vs Minnesota Thunder
This last weekend proved to be a positive start for all the Hawks’ teams as they started into the spring portion of their ECNL Spring Season.
The U14, 03s, had no problem dismantling MTA. Both games featured lots of goals, with the Hawks winning 5-0, 5-0 and securing all 6 points and move into first place in the conference.
The U15s, 02s, struggled through a very tough game on Saturday, only a goal by Joyelle Washington in the first half, that would end up proving to be the difference. Sunday was much easier as they scored early and often, winning 5-1 to remain on top of the Midwest Conference table.
The U16s, 01s, lost on a close match on Saturday. MTA got an early goal in the second half to hand the Hawks their first conference loss of the season.

The U17s, 00s, got two big wins as they look to climb into the National Playoff picture. They got all 6 points with a 1-0 win on Saturday on a goal by Kelsey Adams and then an easy 5-0 win with 3 goals by Michelle Cooper.
The U18s, 99s, had the featured night game on Saturday night. In a game that featured over 300 fans 8 goals and two U20 National Team players, the Michigan Hawks prevailed in a very exciting 5-3 win. Superb goalkeeping by Maya Bellomo and goals by 5 different Hawks, Lexxe Lipsey, Maddy Wolfbauer, Izzy Rodriguez, Maggie Samanich and Maddie Myers may for a great night for all that attended.
