This was a hard fought game that Hawks played the better hockey in but ultimately gave away two sloppy goals and missed a flick.

The Aylesbury team were surprised at how well Hawks competed, and it was only the pedestrain speed of the skipper that let in the 20 year old Aylesbury striker to score their first.

Spittles made amends by clearing a ball off the line but really Hawks needed to make more of their posession in the oppo D and despite some good shots on goal by Adam Bentley from the shorts, half time arrived at 0-1. 

The beginning of the second half saw the HAwks team let in 2 easy goals, and from then on it was uphill, not helped by the desire to pass the ball too much in the Aylesbury D rather than giving it a good old fashioned thump!

Fergus Flanagan showed why he is a great keeper with some well timed dives which somehow got the ball as well as mos of the player, and he was rightly man of the match. 

James Mullan - returning from an extended bout of partying (from May) made a welcome difference and he and Scraggy senior played well in the middle. 

Overall, Hawks played some attractive passing hockey, and they will have to learn to convert that into points if they are to stay in league 6.

Man of the match James Mullan.
