Hawks de­served more

Harefield Gazette - - SPORT -

WHILE a point against Ox­ford Hawks, rel­e­gated from the league above, was sat­is­fac­tory for East­cote Hockey Club men on Satur­day, it should have been more.

Lead­ing 3-2 up with six min­utes left , with a goal dis­al­lowed and hav­ing missed a penalty stroke, the story could have been very dif­fer­ent.

Skip­per Peter Brooks opened the scor­ing and then saw a goal harshly dis­al­lowed be­fore Hawks grabbed an equaliser.

James Thomas again put the Boars in front only for Hawks to equalise again. Brooks then had a penalty saved, but Mark Al­li­son scored for what looked like the win­ner be­fore the third and fi­nal Hawks equaliser late on.

Mean­while, a third suc­ces­sive loss saw for the ladies, this time a 5-0 at home to Wit­ney, saw them hit the bot­tom of the ta­ble with lit­tle pos­i­tives to take away.
