The Cambridge RedHawks' much anticipated debut in the GOJHL got a little foggy.

Play was suspended with 9:39 left in the third period of their opening game at Galt Arena Gardens Saturday because of fog on the ice.

At the time, the RedHawks were up on the Brampton Bombers 4-2.

The team will make an announcement regarding the status of the game at a later date.

It was part of an exciting first week in the GOJHL's eight-team Midwestern Conference.

The Hawks fell in a close one 5-3 to the Kitchener Dutchmen at The Aud.

Austin Forsyth scored twice for Cambridge, with Payton McLeish had a goal of his own.

For Kitchener, they were led by a pair of three point performances from Sean Kawalec and Jeff Schrattner.  Both had a goal and two helpers, while Tyler Harrison and Kole Scott both had a goal and an assist.  Alex Peterson also scored for the Dutchmen.

Meantime, Lucas Patton opened the year with a 21 save shutout to lead the Dutchmen to a 4-0 win over the Elmira Sugar Kings Saturday.

Kyle Kennery scored twice and added an assist. Cam Allan and Sean Kawalec also scored in the win.
