By late February, Ridge finally got it's game momentum, winning 2 of the 3 matches the Hawks played in that time span.
As the condensed regular season is drawing to a close this week, the Hawks are starting a series their final series of 3 matches.
On Monday afternoon, they got all they could handle with Raymond S. Kellis out of Glendale.
The Hawks and the Cougars were locked in a tough defensive battle that wasn't settled until overtime.
Ridge would score the only goal of the contest in extra time to eek out the victory.
The Hawks will next pay a visit to the Kofa Kings on Tuesday night.
