With a good blend of youth and experience Hawks 6ths took the game to the opposition right from the start. Hamish Ferguson ghosted down the right channel and his clever pass found Boots Dawson who slotted home to make it 1-0. This set the tempo for the first half and as Andy Clark in the middle found the free running Freddie Honeyman, Aaron Tyler Chamberlain and Dan Evans the chances fell to the Hawks forwards.
Ollie Graham had two great drives saved by the Maidenhead goal keeper and Hawks were unlucky not to leap to an early commanding lead.
Maidenhead did threaten on the break but Dan Evans was producing his best performance of the season as time and time again he drove down the right channel to create havoc in the Maidenhead 25, and as Hutton, Warner and Dawson jnr stifled any threat the deserved goals were secured.
OJ Webb added to his tally and Richard Walsh finished a worked short corner when earlier he looked to have netted from close range.
George Guillian linked well with Hamish Ferguson and the constant threat of Dan Evans to get Ollie Graham his deserved goal as he finished calmly after a flowing move.
Maidenhead were not to go limply and scored two well taken goals and a couple of gilt edged chances fortunately went the wrong side of the post. But Jim Felix was enjoying himself in goal as Maidenhead continued to press and weathered the storm to secure a hard fought win where they can be proud of their individual and team performace.
