The Hawks U14 squad enjoyed a double header on the day of the Presidents punch up and did their President proud by securing 2 victories.

The early game was away at Oxford Brookes against Oxford and gave a number of players the chance to test their skills and fitness in a full game.

Hawks quickly took the game to Oxford but too often allowed the passes to go astray or simply ran into contact.

Dan held firm in the centre with Amar and Oscar looking to push forward. As Oxford defended deep, space was limited and the ball needed to find the width of Adam and Andrew to open up the defence.

Finally this tactic worked and Adam was given space in the D and finished well to make it 1-0.

The game then got a little scrappy and although Hawks had the upper hand Kristian, Dom and Ed were called upon to hold firm as Oxford broke quickly and Ben in Goal kept the slight lead intact.

Hawks simply needed to take advantage over their control of the game but as long as the 2nd goal would not come the result was not in the bag. Sure enough with a quick break and good interplay Ben was left with no chance as Oxford equalised with less than 5 minutes to go.

To their credit Hawks did not panic and played their best Hockey of the match as the passes found players in space and they pressed all over the pitch.

A great pass from Dan found Amar and as he attacked the 25 to draw the defence he was able to feed Adam to score his second with a crisp finish to make it 2-1.

The team had shown spirit and discipline to secure the win and finish the first half of the season on a high.
