Men's 1s vs Havant 6

Men's 1s vs Havant 6

Another week another game of hockey for the mighty Hailsham, this time travelling along the A27 for a match against Havant 6 in the cup.

Hailsham started by far the stronger of the two teams, a trend which would continue throughout the match. After some early attacking dominance Hailsham quickly went 3-0 up, with goals being scored by unimportant people.

Towards the end of the half, a penalty corner spelt opportunity for Headey coming up from the back, and danger for the opposition. A beautifully executed routine was ended with Headey placing the ball through the out rushing goalkeepers legs, to put the away side 4-0 up at HT.

The second half started and the theme of the match continued, with Hailsham showing continued dominance. The outstanding work rate and general superiority of Headey and his minions at the back had limited Havant to just the one measly shot, and this was not to be added to in the second half.

Some more goals went in that nobody really cared about, until Hailsham were awarded a well deserved penalty stroke. Headey’s teammates looked around, the fear shining in their eyes as none of them wanted the responsibility of such a pivotal moment in the game. So up stepped young handsome Headey, to dispatch the penalty with ease to score what is widely considered the most important goal of the game. 

Following this, Hailsham continued to attack, and despite the opportunity for a first career hat trick, Headey decided to use his chance from a penalty corner to set up one of his insignificant teammates, showing that not only had he surpassed the rest of the players in terms of skill, but that he was generous and merciful as well.

Some more goals went in and the game finished 12 or 13 - 0.
