Match Report – 23 June
Paekakariki Central 3 – Waikanae Hawks 2 (HT 2-1).
With the help of 4 ring-ins we fielded a competitive team but it took a while to settle down & find a rhythm, combinations were a bit loose. Paekak got out to a 2 Nil lead & then we started contesting 50/50 balls & Michele snuck a goal back after putting the goalie under pressure. 2nd half & Jimmy flushed a beautiful free kick from 25 yards out – we had fought back to 2 all with about 25 mins to go. Their turn to apply the pressure, wave after wave of chances on goal & unfortunately they managed to grab the winner with about 5 mins to go. Thanks to Graeme, Matt, Reon & Peter for your help.
Must mention – Faz put on a 1st half cameo for us – first time he has played for the Hawks this year & it was showing after about 7 minutes (“Terry – do you want to go forward?”). And Yannick was back after 6 weeks on the cans in France, plus 7kg! (… after 60 mins – “Hoppy – can I swap with Matt?”, “Why – is everything okay?”, “Yes – but I just want to run!”).
Thanks boys – nice to have you back.
