In ice age 4 Mens 6ths rally in 2nd half to beat Abingdon 4-3

17 March 2018, 10:00, Banbury Road North (Top)

Men's 6s 4 - 3 Abingdon Men's 2s

With conditions so cold that hockey balls were being shattered on contact the cleared snow and cold wind needed plenty of movement, mainly to stop the ears and hands from freezing.

As both teams adapted it was Abingdon that secured the break through from an awarded penalty stroke. Hawks soon equalised as Baldock snr also despatched a penalty stroke.

Arthur Jones between the sticks marshalled a break away well as an Abingdon player found himself all alone in the Hawks half. However lapses of concentration in defence and lack of composure in attack saw Hawks down 3-1 at half time.

Dawson rallied the troops and his Henry the V speech paid dividends as he led the fight back to snatch one back. The evergreen Gilman would draw the scores level at 3-3.

With determination and spirit from the youth with Dawson jnr, Baldock jnr and Warner jnr keeping the pressure the mature head of Dawson snr secured the fourth goal for Hawks who then hung on for a well deserved and welcome win.

Arthur Baldock picked up the man of the match award and continues to develop in each game.
