M1's Off Colour

Men's 1s 3 - 6 London Wayfarers Men's 1s

The M1's made the trip to Battersea Park on Saturday for a sticky fixture against London Wayfarers.  Sadly, most aspects of Hawks’ play deserted them and, despite taking the lead in the seventh minute through a fine individual goal from Will Heywood, Hawks normally reliable defence inexplicably conceded three goals in eight minutes midway through the first half to make what was always going to be a tricky fixture very much an uphill struggle.  Hawks finished the first half in the ascendancy and Ryan Hammond had a goal disallowed which gave some hope for the second half despite turning around 3-1 down.

Hawks started the second half feeling that they were still capable of hauling themselves back into the game, and a clinically executed goal from Andy Watts six minutes in helped to fuel that belief.  Hawks by now were dominating both territory and possession and had good chances to level the scores up.  But chances were squandered and their play in and around the circle lacked cohesion and composure. Wayfarers were always dangerous on the counter attack as Hawks committed players forward and this played into Wayfarers hands.  Three further Wayfarer goals, all on the counter attack and in the space of nine minutes, left Hawks with a mountain that they could not climb.  A yellow card suspension for Ryan Hammond did not help matters and although Jack Biggs pulled one back from a penalty corner with four minutes remaining, Hawks were left with much to ponder on the return journey home.
