On a foggy and frosty Saturday afternoon, Hawks hosted MK as they looked to continue their winning run from before Christmas. After recent disruptions in the Hawks camp, the changing room remained positive for the fixture and took that positivity into the game.

The game started fast for Hawks taking a 1-0 lead after putting MK under a full press. A pinpoint long ball from Jack Biggs to Alex Williams led to him passing to Kyle Barnes across the D for a neat deflection. Hawks continued with their pressure again breaking into MK final third where Kyle Barnes controlled the ball in the D and swept home a finish on his reverse, to put Hawks into a commanding 2-0 lead with barely 5 minutes played. 

Unfortunately for Hawks this was all they mastered in the first half and MK took advantage moving the ball swiftly around the midfield before using there pre determined tactics and picking out two players for deflections on the post from distance bringing the game to 2-2 at the half. 

The second half started as the first half finished with Hawks being on the back foot and MK took their opportunity winning a short corner and converting 10 minutes into the 2nd half. 3-2 MK. 

This goal however spurred Hawks into action and for the following 15 minutes Hawks had MK on the back foot with Hawks pressing hard but not getting the rewards, resulting in Hawks becoming very frustrated and loosing focus. MK managed to work the ball into the D and shot past the outstretched Chris Price, only for an MK player to put the ball in off his body. Lucky escape for Hawks. 

Hawks piled on the pressure looking for an equaliser, and Alex Williams somehow struck the bar from close range. The pressure continued, and the ball was spread wide to Tom Godding with some quick hands drew in 2 players to release Kyle Barnes to slip the ball across the box for an MK defender to use their foot to deny Hawks, a short corner awarded. League top scorer Jack Biggs stepped up with 5 minutes left to equalise for Hawks, and to bring the game back to 3-3 with a flick to extend his goal scoring form.

The result was probably a fair reflection of the game as MK proved they are a very tough and decent side. Hawks feel disappointed after only taking 1 point from the first 2 games after the Xmas break and must improve performances over the next 2 weeks with games against the top 2 sides and then a cup quarter final against premier division side Brooklands MU.
