Boys U14 reach Hockey Cup Regional Knockout
The Boys u14 squad reached the next round of the Hockey Cup having won their league matches to face Isca, Farnham and Surbiton in the knock stage with only one team to progress to the Finals. This competition was coming hard of the back of a big defeat away to Canterbury in the Mercian League. Revived and enthused by words of wisdom from their coaches and with Archie back in goal they took to the challenge and beat Isca 3-0 and Farnham 4-1 to set up a final showdown with former National Champions Surbiton.
The game saw some great hockey played by both teams. Hawks tried to neutralise the centre midfield with man to man marking by Alex Elliott and Kiran Patel showed some silky stick work to forge into the opposition D. At half time it was 0-0 but Surbiton turned on the pressure in the 2nd half with some smooth passing moves to finish 3-0 at full time. Hawks battled well and played some excellent passing hockey showing they have the potential to match the best.
