With the returning Gilman at centre half and dependable Atkins in goal, the skipper privately agreed that Mystic Megs crystal ball should be correct...but...as he warned at the pre game talk, Witney had managed some much better displays recently, and unfortunately, he was right.
Hawks added the oomph that was missing last week to some lovely hockey between Gilman and MacLachlan, with the added zip of Robins so it should have been a banker..
As umpire Boots said after the game - "how on earth did you not win that game?..."
Their keeper had a blinder, we missed anything that he didnt save and we drew 0-0.
Despite all that, it was an enjoyable game played in excellent spirit, thanks to Dave Wells for umpiring (with Boots) Jamie his son had a great game at right half, as did Mike Image who had a blinder at the back.
Toby Mac was man of the match again, and Shirley was the pick of the forward line.....
Ashford 6 pointer next week and squad looking depressingly light....
