The Pembina Valley Hawks winning streak has reached six games after a 4-2 win over the Brandon Wheat Kings Sunday. 

"I think all of our lines are finally starting to jell. Lines are cycling better than they were at the start of the season and everyone is just working harder and better as team," said forward Elijah Carels. "Everyone is buying into the systems and our goalie is saving us most games. It's been a good run for us so far."

Pembina Valley would get the lone goal in the opening period when Garrett Szremley pinched from the point, received a Carels pass from down low and put it top shelf to give the Hawks a 1-0 lead. 

Meanwhile, in the second period, it was Brandon who had the only goal. Tanner Morrison knotted the game up at one at roughly the half-way mark of the second. 

In the third, both teams would trade goals Carels scored his first of two on the night with Cade Kowalski and Caleb Unrau drawing the assists on the play. Then with just five minutes to play in the final sixty Tate Popple snapped one past Hawks goaltender Aaron Brunn to once again tie the game.

The game winning goal saw Kowalski skate through the offensive zone, behind the net and find a wide open Carels in the high slot and put home 40th goal of the campaign. This would end up being the game winner, and Kolton Shindle would add an insurance marker into the empty net with just under :30 seconds remaining.

Brunn turned aside 31 shots in the victory for the Hawks. 

"I felt really good out there. The guys were doing a heck of a job out there, making things easy for me and allowing me to see pucks," explained Brunn. "I couldn't have gotten it without them and feels pretty good."

Pembina Valley was 1-for-4 on the man advantage and was perfect all four times on the penalty kill. 

With the win, the Hawks hold sole possession of fourth place in the Manitoba "AAA" Midget Hockey League with 55 points. The Wheat Kings are in fifth at 52 points, while Pembina Valley trails the Winnipeg Thrashers for third by one point and have a game in hand on the Thrashers.

"Every win is huge, but that one is huge because of the standings and stuff. Really it was a good team win," said Shindle.

The Hawks have three regular season games remaining against the Southwest Cougars, Wednesday in Souris, then a pair of home games against Yellowhead and Eastman this coming weekend.
