One Trip to the Well Too Many for M1's

27 March 2022, 14:00, Havant College

Men's 1s 0 - 3 Havant Men's 1s

The M1's travelled to bottom of the table Havant on Sunday with a squad of just 13 players, and with the temperature soaring on the south coast, Hawks ran out of legs at the death - conceding three goals in the last seven minutes of the game.  The previous 63 minutes had been closely contested and Hawks had plenty of opportunities to get the scoreboard ticking over.  But they found Polish international Maciej Pacanowski in the Havant goal in fine form, making two saves in particular that prevented certain goals.  Hawks played some good attacking hockey in the first half, but as the game wore on, so Havant's ability to rotate more players in the heat began to tell and Hawks came under increasing pressure as Havant pressed for the win that might save them from the relegation trap door.  With just seven minutes left on the clock, the Hawks rearguard was finally breached when first a mistrap and then a miskick presented Havant with a simple finish to take a 1-0 lead.  Two further goals followed in the final two minutes as Hawks realised the game was up.  Hawks have pulled results out of the bag in previous games when playing with depleted numbers, but there were no rabbits left in the hat this time, and they had to take a disappointing defeat on the chin.  The last game of the season sees the M1's take on champions-elect Reading at BRN on Sunday at 2.00pm.
