Haslemere triumph in Battle of the Hawks
Last minute penalty secures three points for HTYFC U11 Hawks
Scorers: Finley, Lucas
The Hawks bounced back to winning ways in a thrilling game at Badshot Lea on Saturday morning.
Whilst both sides started the match strongly, Badshot Lea scored to take the first half lead.
Finley, who's now scored in all 3 of our opening 2013/2014 league matches, equalised before the half-time break.
Both teams created numerous chances to score during the second half and the boys efforts were rewarded when we were awarded a penalty in the last 5 minutes. Lucas kept his composure to blast the ball into the back on the net!
It was really pleasing to see the boys pass the ball with such confidence and use the width of the new larger pitch. We were a real threat from set pieces, particularly Hayden's corner kicks (WOW!), something we will continue to work on and develop at Tuesday training.
Man of the match this week went to Liam who's tackling, distribution and composure whilst on the ball was a pleasure to watch. A fantastic performance in defence at right back - well done Liam!
Next up for the Hawks a home match to Mytchett Athletic Kestrels
