M1's Progress to Quarter Finals of EH Cup

03 February 2019, 14:30

Men's 1s 2 - 2 Reading Men's 1s

The M1's travelled to premiership side and cup holders Reading on Sunday after weeks of inactivity due to the EHL mid-season break and then the recent bad weather.  If expectations were not high before the game, they dipped even further when Reading opened the scoring inside fifteen seconds and before a Hawks player had even touched the ball.  Hawks old boy Charlie Ellison made it 2-0 on ten minutes with a rasping penalty corner strike and a long afternoon looked to be looming for Hawks.  But to their great credit Hawks knuckled down and stuck to their task of playing simple hockey, and with new recruit Daniel Rayney performing well in midfield, they surprised their hosts when Kit Cutter reduced the arrears on twenty minutes with a crisp drive from the top of the circle.  Suddenly Hawks had their tails up and it wasn’t long before Sam Chilvers equalised when following up strongly from a rebound.  The second half was a generally evenly contested affair but with the better chances falling to Reading, including a couple of penalty corners.  However, the Hawks rearguard held resolute and the team continued to do simple things well - deservedly holding out for a draw to take the tie to a penalty shoot-out.  Hawks again held their nerve and thanks to two fine saves by Chris Price in the Hawks goal, Hawks progressed to the quarter finals at the expense of the holders.

Result 2 - 2 : Hawks win 4-3 on penalty shoot out.
