Hawks 5s started off the season with a hard fought draw against a team who got the better of the side in the previous season.
The team battled through an onslaught of Henley attacks to go in at half time 1-0 down however switched on in the second half and vastly improved in all aspects of their game. Mid way through the second half a well worked short corner routine allowed Barney Barber to smash the ball home, sending the goalkeepers glove flying in the process as well as leaving the rest of the team confused as to where the ball had ended up. Soon after the opposition replied and the score remained 2-1 until almost the last kick in the game at which point a lovely bit of skill and a stunning pass by OJ Webb allowed Jamie Hill to calmly slot home the equaliser.
Special mention must go the goalkeeper Jonny Atkins who’s incredible performance prevented Henley from racking up 6 or 7 goals and also Alex Bush who was involved in the majority of the side’s play throughout the game
