The M1's are not making a great fist of things on their travels in National League One this season. Having conceded a three goal first half deficit two weeks ago at Teddington, the M1's repeated the self-inflicted damage at Sevenoaks on Saturday, leaking two goals inside the first seven minutes and another midway through the second quarter. The malaise is a mystery but such generosity is not something they can afford to extend to their hosts on an ongoing basis. Sevenoaks are a formidable challenge at the best of times and too many players simply did not turn up for the first twenty five minutes of the game. By then, Hawks had left themselves a mountain to climb. But nearly climb it they did, and a spirited second half performance demonstrating the intensity that was so badly lacking in the first half put the home side firmly on the ropes. Two goals from Jack Biggs, one penalty stroke and one penalty corner, brought Hawks within touching distance of an unlikely point. But they couldn't quite find the opening to bring the scores level and were left with the consolation of that 'what might have been' feeling for the second away game in succession. Plenty to think about and straighten out before the M1's entertain high-flying Canterbury next Saturday in the late afternoon slot.
