Hawks Mens 1's v Oxford University Mens 1's

12 January 2013

Men's 1s 1 - 2 Oxford University Men's 1s

Hawks started the 2013 campaign against local rivals and top of the league team Oxford University.  With captain Roche missing through injury Hawks tactics was to defend and hit Uni on the break. Hawks started brightly threatening the Uni. goal in the opening exchanges. With Hawks playing defensively Ox. Uni. enjoyed most of the first half possession. A number of fine saves in goal by man of the match Phil Hargraves and a goal line clearance by Jack Biggs kept the score 0 – 0 at half time.


The second half followed the same pattern, the students threatening but Hawks holding firm. Nick Lamb returning from injury making a number of important tackles. Oxford Uni. went ahead after a cross was converted from close range. Hawks had a couple of chances before equalising. Charlie Ellison slapped a free hit into the D from outside the 25 to find a diving Sam Chilvers, his shot was saved by the keeper for James Ward to score from the rebound. With five minutes to go Oxford Uni went ahead from a short  corner, with nothing to lose Hawks put an extra man up front. The gamble nearly paid off, Ted Bennett saw his shot saved seconds before the final whistle. Final whistle Hawks 1 Oxford University 2.
