A strong second half by Hawks 7s seals a 2-0 win

14 January 2017

Men's 7s 2 - 0 Wallingford Men's 5s

The first half against a dogged Wallingford side saw the home team edge the possession although Hawks created good chances on the break with Whitey and Johnny Sunderland linking well. However it was all a bit rushed with little cohesion and a large amount of frustration. Jon Davies in goal for Hawks made some good saves to keep the result at 0-0 by half time.

The 2nd half saw a different pattern as Dan Evans began to dominate the right channel, pushing forward from right back, and the midfield of Warner, Smith and Venables linking well.

The deciding factor was the trio of Evans, Whitey and Sunderland and as Hawks pressed the got their reward from a well struck short corner by Will Smith on the 2nd phase.

Hawks then dominated for a 10 minute spell and both Sunderland and Whitey were unlucky not to increase the tally with the Wallingford goal-keeper making some fine saves.

Then came the move of the match as Dan Evans and Richard Venables combined after a sublime pass from Will Smith. Whitey found space in the D. He drew the goal-keeper and found Sunderland who finished with aplomb to make it 2-0.

Richard Walsh was unlucky not to make it 3 as he ghosted past 3 Wallingford players across the front of the Wallingford goal but was unlucky to see his push shot inch past the post.

A good win and the team shows continued signs of development and look forward to 2017.
