The Calgary Hawks got the scoring going in their opening game of the Northern Rockies Classic tournament in Missoula Montana today. A blue line shot by defender, Jennifer Nixon made its way through traffic and landed in the net. On the day marked by the inauguration of Donald J. Trump as the 45th President of the United States, it was to be the only goal by the Canadian team. Their opponents from the Coeur D’Alene (CDA) Hockey Academy, Idaho,  skated out strong as winners, 5-1. A gritty performance by the Calgary Girls Hockey Bantam (U-14) team, playing up in their first international game on USA ice, against a Midget (U19) team from Idaho. The Hawks fly again tomorrow at the Glacier Ice Rink, starting with an outdoor game.
