New Year Blues Strikes Hawks 5’s

11 January 2020

Men's 5s 4 - 6 Milton Keynes Men's 3s

Arriving at Milton Keynes Hawks were full of youth and enthusiasm. Off the back of a positive warm up the team were ready and raring to set the new year off in style.

 

All of that went out the window as within 10 minutes a catalogue of individual errors meant Hawks were reeling at 3-0. A change of formation and the introduction of Boots and Captain Ed Baldock saw a reverse in fortune as Hawks started to play the hockey they are so capable of and the reason we are competing for top spot in the league. 

 

The first goal was a cut back ball to the top of the circle which left Ed Baldock with two players to beat before slotting neatly past the MK keeper.

 

Two minutes later a penalty corner was awarded after positive Hawks endeavour. Boots slotted home low and hard. Hawks with their tails up were playing fast attacking hockey and a perfectly weighted aerial from Monkey to Ash, who buried his opportunity, saw the team complete the comeback. Hawks now pushed for the 4th finding it in a slipped penalty corner to Boots who grabbed his second of the match. 

 

Sadly the second half ended up being a repeat of the first 10 minutes with Hawks failing to find their passes and getting caught high up the pitch and hit on the counter. 

 

The game ended 6-4 and the less said about it probably the better. Onwards to Aylesbury at home next week.
