A well hard working and well organised team performance gained the 7's a point when once one down, it seemed as if the Gods were conspiring against them.
The match was noteworthy for the debut Mens performance of Ben Pearce in goal who took all in his stride and made some good saves and telling clearances.
The turning point of the game was the award of a P flick to Henley just before half time, which they managed to hit the post with and so all square at half time.
Sam Raynor was the stand out Hawks player who managed to keep the talented Henley centre forward quiet all game, and he made some excellent interceptions.
Even with the addition of Gilman in midfield, the middle of the park was always slightly congested. When Hawks conceded first through a very well struck hit off a short, it seemed that the possession that Hawks had had would all be to no avail...
With missed opportunities adding up throughout the second half it was a relief that Steve Elliott manged to poke a scrambled flick through past the able Henley keeper and the whole team cheered with relief.
its a very tight table now....
