Hawks 7ths are joined by new faces and battle hard for a 1-1 draw

08 October 2016, 13:30, Headington School

Men's 7s 1 - 1 Oxford Men's 8s

In an enjoyable encounter Hawks 7ths saw debut appearances for Oliver Honeyman, Ollie Graham and Anton Eisner, and they all quickly settled into their stride. Anton Eisner was given the opportunity to push forward whenever possible and he linked well with Whitey and Oliver Honeyman on the right Channel. Charlie Warner kept the left tight with the pace of David White and Richard Walsh creating space.

During a good spell the ball was worked from Will Smith and Whitey Jnr found Whitey who struck the ball firmly passed the Oxford keeper. This was his first goal wearing a Hawks shirt and for that reason he must pick up the MofM award.

Ollie Graham was tireless up front and his excellent movement created opportunities but the ball was often given away cheaply as the ball reached the danger zone and the chances went begging.

Hawks lost their pattern towards the end of the first half as Oxford pushed forward and as the game resumed after half time a lapse in concentration not long after the re-start saw the ball fall to Oxford in the D, and with men over the score was made 1-1 despite the heroic efforts of Jonny The Fox in goal.

Increasingly Will Smith pushed Hawks forward and Whitey Jnr was unlucky to hit the post. The game was played competitively and as tired legs took over a few tackles became a little clumsy. Chances were made at both end and Jonny the Fox pulled off two or three good saves and a draw was probably disappointing but fair.
