Seb Berndes no.8. Norseman Hawks
The Hawks had a draw last week and we wanted to get a win today. This league has been a big step up from our old league and we are playing more challenging matches. With Arthur, Luke and Oliver away we all had to play the whole match. In the first 7 minutes we were on the attack, Harry shot, the keeper saved it and it came to Theo with an open goal, he shot but it was cleared off the line by their defender. About 2 minutes later the opposition were in the same position as us but they scored and they were 1-0 up. In the twentieth minute they were on the attack and were doing nice passing. They shot and scored to put Norseman's heads down. The Hawks were having shot after shot but none of them were going in. The opposition brought on a substitute he was really fast and got passed our defenders and he scored to make are hearts thump. The ref blew his whistle for half time and we had a lot to talk about and tac tics to try. We switched our goalies, with Jake coming out and Taylan going in. We gave away a penalty and if they scored there would be no coming back. He shot but Taylan saved it! Hawks suffered again with another goal to Tottenhall and was 4-0. The shot was unstoppable!! Despite the 4-0 Hawks created lots of chances, but none went in! But in the last kick off the game Harry scored to give us some pride. We didn't deserve to lose 4-1, Hawks will come back stronger next week.
Seb Berndes no.8. Norseman Hawks
After last weeks loss Norseman had to be at their best to get a win and start their winning strike again. It was Theo's rest week so that was a big miss for us.
It was in the first 10 minutes, George was through on goal. It was a battle between George and the defender .George beat the defender and was now running at the goalkeeper, seconds later it was 1-0 to the Hawks, and we were of to a good start. The defence were solid at the back with Luke T not anyone get past him.
In the second half George and Harry both had great opportunities with George hitting the post and Harry putting three shots wide. The opposition had a ball played to their right wing back, he shot from outside the box and ended up over Arthur's head in our net. The rest of the match was quite even, we had our attacks and they had their chances. The game was over and it was 1-1. It was the right score at the end of the day but maybe we could have got another goal? Hopefully we can win next Saturday.

It was our first game in the higher division and Norseman knew we had to up our game. Was it going to be the Hawks first game loss in the league in 11 months????
In the first 15 minutes it was even but the other team had the better chances and could have been ahead. Harry had tons of space, he shot from outside the box and it was 1-0 to the Hawks, just before half time. At the start of the second half, we had a free kick and Harry hit it like Gareth Bale into the top corner, 2-0 to Norsemen. Arthur was amazing in goal with a defence of Luke T, Oran, Dexter, Harry G and Jake holding a solid blue line to keep Hitchin out. The Hawks broke again, Sebastian was through on goal and tricked the goalie, past to Taylan with a clear shot at goal and it was 3-0.
Hitchin didn't give up and they had a free kick which they smashed into the top corner. 3-1 with 5 minutes to go. In the last minute Hitchin's winger cut in and managed to sneak in a second goal.The ref blew his whistle and the final score was 3-2.
