Hawks 7ths got the train back on track in a hard fought match where despite having the better of the first half the goal would not come. The battle in midfield led to few chances with a lack of intensity in the top end of the pitch. However Freddie Smith broke the dead=lock on his debut as Hawks finally unlocked the tight defence and he finished calmly on the left post.
The half time team talk was easy. Pass the ball and attack the D and it will get its rewards.
Accordingly Hawks held a deeper line with Henman, Dunn, Warner and Evans keeping it tight and giving more space in midfield. The midfield was no less hard fought with Will Smith and Richard Walsh battling hard with Rory Bowden holding well.
The break came when Richard Walsh found the inside right channel open up and his drive into the D and pass left found OJ Webb, who also finished well,
Hawks looked to have secured a 3rd with a deflected short corner, but made it 3-0 as Whitey and Fogden combined. George Chambers drew the keeper and was the wrong side of a deliberate foul. Will Smith made it 3-0. The game was finished with a late fourth.
The squad has developed throughout the season and look forward to a strong position in the league.
