Weekend Wrap 19/05/12

The Hawks made the trip out to Trinity Beach on Saturday to take on the Doggies in a Twilight game, to kick off the 2nd round of 2012, and to also launch a re-start to a so far stuttering season by the champs!
In the main bout, the Hawks looked good from the outset, with some senior regulars missing and injuries to Willie and Smithy earl, it left the side short on numbers and experience, but to the Hawks credit they ran the game out well under some physical pressure from the Dogs, and some verbal pressure from the crowd, to which the guys stood up to well and coasted away to win by 7 goals in a game that had few highlights, although again the youngsters stood up well, ably led by Powelly and Gribbs in his 1st game back,

the ressies having a near full team, 20 in total, the signs looked promising early, given 20 is a lot for the team to start with, but as the game unravelled the Doggies were just more desperate, and wanted the win more than the Hawks, until late in the last term when the Hawks got a sniff and it was game on, until ultimately some basic decision and skill errors cost some un timely turnovers that let the Doggies escape with a hard fought victory, with only 1 point in it until the Dogs kicked a goal after the siren to steal a 7 point win!
