After the excellent victory over Old Georgians last weekend, Hawks made the long journey south to face the new league leaders Havant, keen to inflict another upset.
Hawks started the match brightly with some swift inter passing but were unable to continue this as Havant began to dictate play. Hawks were unable to sustain any pressure on a Havant side who were playing to their strengths of long passes into the D and winning short corners. Eventually the pressure told and they were able to convert. With some excellent last ditched defending and goal keeping Hawks were able to keep the score 1-0 at half time.
The second half started with Hawks pressing high and putting the Havant defence under a lot of pressure. They began to create more and more chances and should of equalised earlier after some excellent attacking hockey. Eventually the pressure resulted in a well taken goal by Sam Chilvers to bring them right back in to the game.
Both sides continued to look for the winning goal in what can only be described as a frantic, end to end final period. Neither team were able to find the winner but Hawks second half performance especially showed the previous weeks result to be no one off.
