U14 boys win tough test against Marlow

14 December 2014

U14 Boys 2 - 1 Marlow U14 Boys

Score 2-1 Goal Scorers Laurie Cooke 1 (short corner) Toby Maclachlan 1 (open play)

In a highly competitive game Marlow won the early exchanges and Hawks were on the back foot.

This pattern continued but just as the midfield of Phil, Ed and Bradley began to adapt to the pace of the game, the shape was impacted by a couple of quick injuries.

The back four held firm, however, and with Aidan and Toby providing excellent cover the half backs of Roly and Ollie could find gaps to feed the forwards.

Unfortunately an excellent flowing move by Marlow led to good finish and Hawks went 1-0 down.

This galvanized the Hawks forwards of Krishan, James and Freddie into action and James stated to cause problems in the D.

Laurie then pushed forward and a quick inter change with Krishan led to a short corner. Toby’s shot was finished well by Laurie to make it 1-1.

In the second half Hawks now enjoyed their best spell of the match with Toby finding the forwards from deep with Laurie and Phil pressing forward to support.

James has a couple of good chances which tested the goal keeper-when the helicopter turns headed towards goal.

The game went quickly from end to end and Aravind held firm in goal. He simply was not going to allow Marlow to finish their slick approach work.

Step up Toby. With a run from deep he found space at the top of the D and an early strike found the back of the net. 2-1 to Hawks.

Further chances could have been taken by either side but Hawks secured a short corner on the final whistle and could enjoy the win but were unable to secure goal number 3.

This was a tough test and Hawks demonstrated how far they have come since the start of the Season with the experience of Ed and Toby providing confidence through the team.

Aravind and Aidan were a master-class in defence and ran Toby close for Man of the  Match.
