Hawks flying high
Fully deserved three points for the battling Hawks
Scorers: Daniel (2), Aidan (2), Lucas
The Hawks worked their socks off to take a fully deserved win over a strong Mytchett side in an exciting match at Camelsdale rec.
The boys started really strongly and were straight out of the blocks this week, taking the game to Mytchett and almost going ahead after a few minutes with Finley using his pace to get in behind the opposition defence. The midfield of Luca, Daniel, Lucas and Aidan were battling hard and the pressure paid off when Daniel hit an unstoppable shot from outside the area to give the Hawks a deserved lead after 15 minutes. Mytchett started to get back into the game towards the end of the half and leveled the match not long before half time. 1-1 at the break.
After the re-start, it was end to end stuff. With new signing, Connor playing really well on his debut and Tyler coming as striker, the Hawks started to get the upper hand and took control of ther match with two more quality goals from Daniel and Aidan. Mytchett got one back to make it nervy finish but a great solo run from Lucas made the points safe before a lovely passing move was finished off in style by Aidan to make it 5-2.
Great performances all over the pitch meant Man of the Match was too hard to call this week so it was awarded to the three-man defence of George, Hadyn and Liam who worked superbly together, tackling hard and showing great composure to feed the midfield.
Great to see Max coming straight form the hospital to cheer on his team mates - heal up quickly Max!
An away trip to Hook next week - full details to follow when we have them.
