I made the mistake in last week's report of suggesting that the chums had exhausted every possible way of surrendering three points this season. Not so - as it turned out.
On Saturday the chums reached half time against struggling Wallingford 2-1 ahead thanks to goals from Jake Taylor and Stotty - thus needing to play with only a modicum of common sense to pick up a long overdue win.
In the second half something very strange occurred. Although, physically, they looked remarkably like the same side which had started the game it rapidly became obvious that the Hawks team comprised totally different players altogether. These players had clearly never held a hockey stick in their lives and certainly had not been present at the pre match briefing.
I can't begin to explain it.
Result Hawks 2 Wallingford 4. Pathetic.
DoD - everyone
MoM - no-one
