"We came out and played very hard against a highly ranked team," coach Jeff Corkish said. "We controlled a lot of the game in their offensive zone, but could not get the quality chances that we needed to put them on their heels and tip the momentum into our favor. They always seemed to come back and get a bounce to lie in front of the net ending in a goal for them."
Hastings is now 4-5-3 in league play.
