Given the recent travel problems with many roads flooded Bicester arrived very early for the game against Hawks 3’s on Saturday.
Bicester started well with the speedy forward accelerating into heavy traffic in the Hawks defence, Tim Martin employed his radar gun and stopped most traffic and when this needed a more drastic application of the law Foggy rolled out his stinger and punctured all Bicester tyres. We were surprised that Bicester seemed to intent on driving at high speed directly at him, despite all of the signs warning them. WARNING FOGGY. Bad driving really, at that speed it was always going to end in a collision and often it did.
It was however difficult to move the ball into midfield with Stig Turland making a very passing impression of a roundabout (part in due to his over indulgence at Xmas) Hawks decided that getting into the fast lane quickly was the best plan with Spittles and Rogers both accelerating at typical teenager speeds, slightly out of control and swearing at all traffic around them.
With traffic calming being employed by Dawson Hawks soon settled and James Rogers broke the deadlock with a decent drive and parked the ball nicely in the corner. Captain Dawson then added a second from a short corner with Bicester keeper unsighted by a blind spot.
Later in the second half, Bicester ran out of juice and by this time the Hawks 3rd XI machine was purring into Top Gear. Star in a reasonably priced 3rd XI, Spittles added a couple of his own to make it 4-0. Dave Springer employing a typical South African approach by stopping people and demanding the ball or you will be shot. Josh Tomlinson playing his first game of the season finally polished Bicester off to make it 5-0.
So still top of the league, with the team collecting another 3 points on their license.
Played 12 won 12, happy days.
