The trip to High Wycombe saw a pitch bathed in sunshine and a light-hearted atmosphere to the season's opener and unfortunately this lack of intensity reflected Hawks play in the opening 15 minutes.
Wycombe took the game to Hawks and were allowed to create space as the largely static Hawks players were trying to find their feet. As Wycombe pressed the Hawks 25 the first blood went to Wycombe after a deflected short corner found its way into the corner.
This turned out to be the wake-up call Hawks needed and Charlie Warner and Dan Evans began to find the ball and link with the midfield of Bush, Brook and Walsh. However, the passing and movement was still sluggish and few opportunities to press the Wycombe defence emerged.
After a light switch moment when a passing move involving Roger Dunn, Charlie Warner and 'Boots' Dawson found Alex Bush who finished crisply.
In the second half, as the forward line rotated with OJ Webb and Ollie Graham leading the line, Arthur Baldock and George Dawson created problems on the flanks whilst George Guillain added fresh legs to the midfield.
The game then swung Hawks way with well taken goals by Dawson Snr and Jnr.
O J Webb then put the icing on the cake when his well-struck shot hit the keeper and he finished the rebound with aplomb.
However the MofM performance was from Alex Bush who grew as the game unfolded and his pace and persistence put Wycombe on the back foot. With a goal and 3 assists his pace created excellent support for Matt Brook to ensure a hard-fought win was never in doubt.
