Smiths Falls – The Smiths Falls Bears continued their mid-season resurgence on Tuesday night, shutting out the visiting Hawkesbury Hawks 3-0 in Central Canada Hockey League Tier 1 action in Smiths Falls.
Hunter Garlasco, Bruce Coltart and Hayden Hart each found the net for the surging Bears (8-13-3), while Bradley Dobson turned aside all 26 shots he faced en route to a shutout.
It was a forgettable road effort from Hawkesbury (14-7-0), whose lone boxscore presence was forward Michael Marleau and his 17 penalty minutes related to a check-from-behind.
The Bears will host the Ottawa Junior Senators on Friday night at the Bear’s Den. Game time is 7:30pm.
