Hawks travelled to the lovely Linford Christie Stadium to take on Chiswick looking to continue their great form from previous weeks.Those staying next door staying at Her Majestey's pleasure were eager for the game to get under way.
When it did Hawks started brightly, containing Chiswick and hit them on the counter with devastating effect, multiply chances were created testing the strength and resolve of the Chiswick keeper. Eventually the pressure told when a fast flowing counter was eventually tucked away past the keeper by Ben Roe. Hawks continued to cut through Chiswick on the counter and showed good patience with the ball retaining an building moves from the back. Hawk's didn't have it all their own way though, Chiswick showed threats winning a couple of short corners in quick succession but they were dealt with by the reshaped defensive unit who were showing great composure. Chiswick began to open up as they were unsure how to deal with the movement and pace that Hawks bought to the game as well as breaking down the strong defensive line. Their best chance came from an aerial over the top of the defence, only for the ball and receiving player to be met by Price who had no hesitation in showing them it was his D.
Ben Wilson was able to finish two fine moves before half time giving Hawk's a 3-0 at half time. Player\Coach for the day Drew demonstrated how we now had a good platform to really go and put the game to bed. All the players in the squad dully obliged, Hawks continued to play well with Chiswick having only one clear chance which was cleared off the line by Sean Maclachlan who had been stellar at the back after his late call up.
Hawks continued to search for goals and found two more, Ben Wilson completing his hat-trick and second débutante Louis Yates getting on the score sheet as well.
Hawks are now 2 points from the top and will entertain Maidenhead at home next weekend looking to continue their for and challenge for top spot in the league.
