The Newmarket Hawks headed down to Talbot Park to take on the Leaside Leafs on Thursday night. Veteran David MacPherson came out of retirement to take the bump for the Hawks. D-Mac struggled at times and left the game down by a few. The Leafs took a solid 9-6 lead into the ninth. The Hawks scored three runs in the ninth inning to tie the game and then scored two in the tenth to take a 11-9 win.
Victor Simon picked up the win for the Hawks in a relief appearance. The Hawks doubleheader on Saturday has been postponed. They are now off until Tuesday when the Martingrove Sox come to town.
