M1's go clear at the Top

27 January 2018, 11:00, Banbury Road North (Near)

Men's 1s 4 - 0 Spencer Men's 1s

The M1's entertained London-based Spencer determined to reinforce their win over fellow contenders London Edwardians last week by extending their winning run.  The visitors had the better of the opening skirmishes without really threatening the Hawks goal, before Hawks hit their stride and started to dominate the game, enjoying the lion’s share of possession.  However the cutting edge of recent weeks was missing and clear open play chances were few and far between. But Hawks superiority eventually told and from their first penalty corner Jack Biggs fired home in the twenty second minute.  Three minutes later Biggs repeated the dose and five minutes before half time Biggs completed a first half hat-trick from three penalty corners.

Hawks were good value for their half time lead but inexplicably seemed to take their foot off the accelerator in the second half and their play became scrappy and imprecise. Although Spencer upped their game, Hawks conceded too much possession through cheap turnovers and failed to build any periods of sustained possession.  Despite hitting the post twice, Hawks couldn’t find a way past the Spencer rear-guard until five minutes from full time when Will Heywood finished off a determined run with a strong reverse hit strike into the far bottom corner.  Although the second half performance was frustrating, any 4-0 win over Spencer is a good win, and with news filtering through that Edwardians had lost at Indian Gym, Hawks find themselves six points clear at the top plus a vastly superior goal difference that is effectively worth a point.
