The Southern River Hockey Club’s mens top side played against Aquinas on Sunday at Shenton Turf
After a patchy first half it was one all with both sides having plenty of control at differing stages of the game.
After a regroup at half time the Hawks came out to play and found the rhythm that they established over the previous two games. The Hawks opened up the field by playing the ball more consistently around our own backs to use the entire field to our advantage and get the Reds doing a lot of running to cover space. With persistent attacks the Reds defence eventually opened up and the Hawks had a two one lead. Whist the Reds had the occasional counter attack the second half saw the Hawks with the fast majority of possession and with patience paying off, the side slid another two goals through the Reds overworked defence.
It was an even goal spread with Nathan Messer, Lea Hansard, Guy Hoskin and Steve Martino all getting on the score sheet.
Again the Hawks have some momentum up and are looking forward to the challenge of playing the top two sides in the coming weeks
