M1's go top of the table

18 November 2017

Men's 1s 5 - 2 Winchester Men's 1s

With London Edwardians dropping points, a 5 – 2 win on Saturday for the M1's away at Winchester propelled them to the top of the South Premier League.

Although Winchester enjoyed the majority of possession in the opening minutes, Hawks soon began to assert themselves on the game despite a difficult, bouncy pitch.  The home GK made a good save from Hawks opening penalty corner, but from their second Jack Biggs opened the scoring.  The game was probably more open than Hawks would have preferred, and a 1-0 half time scoreline suggested that Hawks still had much to do to secure the points.

Despite never really getting into top gear, nor making the most of their many circle penetrations, Hawks gradually took control of the score board and the game thanks to a brace from Andy Watts in the early stages of the second half - the home GK learning in the process not to play one-twos with Watts!  A goal from Winchester briefly hinted at a comeback by the home team, but Watts completed his hat trick to put the game beyond doubt.  A sloppy (from Hawks perspective) second goal for Winchester was matched by a fifth from Hawks when Matt Wood was credited with the score despite a home defender applying the decisive finishing touch.
