The Huskies hockey team once again imposed their will last Saturday, defeating the Horizon Huskies 6-0. Thanks to a hat trick from Carter Newlin and another masterful performance from senior goaltender Hayden Manning. The Huskies jumped on the throat of Horizon early, controlling most of the play in the offensive zone, and firing many shots on the Huskies goalie. Newlin added insurance for Hamilton, completing the natural hat trick midway through the 2nd. Newlin (12), talked about his success over the weekend, stating that “I was able to get great passes from teammates and to be able to put the puck on net and for it to go in is always a nice feeling. Newlin leads the team with 4 goals this season. The Huskies engage in a rivalry game next Sunday the 22nd against Basha/Perry Bears.
