Hawks Men’s 4’s fell to a comprehensive defeat against Windsor 1’s. In their first league game of the season, the 4’s were a little off the pace, and it was their carelessness in possession of the ball that saw them slip to a 5-2 defeat.

Following a rigorous warm-up, the game began at a high-tempo and Hawks enjoyed large spells of possession in Windsor’s half. But it was the opposition who went ahead after latching on to the ball in Hawks’ own 25. Hawks would go level - Tom Mills clearing up a shot from Guy Biggs – but this didn’t last long as the home side were caught out at the back again. Before the half was up, Windsor extended their lead further from a penalty corner to make it 3-1 at the interval.

The second half began much like the first half, with Hawks in the ascendancy and piling the pressure on Windsor. However, credit must go to the opposition. They coped well and their outstanding goalkeeper thwarted Hawks time and again.

Hawks were beginning to tire in search of a comeback, and Windsor’s crisp passing and patient build up frustrated the home side. Eventually the opposition scored another goal to open up a 4-1 lead. Hawks did manage to peg a goal back through Matt Oakes, and Hawks temporarily had their tails up, but Windsor still looked comfortable with a two-goal lead and would go on to notch a fifth in the closing stages.

A slightly disappointing performance from the 4’s, who again looked devoid of match sharpness and fitness – something all must take responsibility for with more important games to come.  

Many thanks to Evelyn Hargraves for the excellent photos.
