GOING PURPLE CAMPAIGN



Bringing awareness to Pancreatic Cancer Research is the increasing support of the “Going Purple” campaign amongst sporting clubs in which teams purchase specially made purple socks and wear them for one allocated day only during the football seaon.
 
This year was the first time Hills Hawks has been involved in this campaign. Over 50% of Hills Hawks teams from Under 6’s to Over 45’s participated by purchasing purple socks as well as donating to the Going Purple for Pancreatic Cancer fundraising page. 
 
The CEO of the Avner Pancreatic Cancer Research Foundation, Julian Martin, visited Hayes Park on 22nd July to watch some of our teams competing in their purple socks. He appreciates the support that our Club has shown towards the Going Purple campaign.
 
We will continue to support this great cause so look out for further information next season.

MATCH REPORTS:



U6 to U8

1 Jul Under 7 North/Yellow vs Epping FC b - Loss (0-8)

Match Report 1/7/17

The team was led by John and Beau today with some great passing and solid kicks and determined defense.
Special mention goes to Ollie, Kiran, Knox. Great effort boys.


1 Jul Under 8 North/Black vs Thornleigh SC - Win (8-0)

Report

Fantastic game by the boys today, with Gus, Rorey and Joel on fire with their goal scoring. Defence by Kai was outstanding, as well as several great saves by Brendan and Joel in goals. Player of the week is Joel - well done!


1 Jul Under 8 North/Yellow a vs WPH Cherrybrook FC a - Win (3-0)

vs WPH Cherrybrook A 1st July

A couple of players are out again this week, meaning the Hawks will have one sub and the kids will need to do some running on this cold Saturday morning.
The Hawks got off to a flier with some great passing and team work up front between Trey, Sabella, Harlon and Lewis. Kiana was great in goal and the Hawks went o halftime up 3-0 with all three goals by Lewis.
The second half was also a good effort with Lachlan and Josh solid in defence and some good work up front by Ella and Cooper. Lewis continued his good game with a great effort in goal in the 2nd half.
Final score 3-0 which is a great effort against a team who beat us in the first round. Player of the week, Lewis. Well done team!


8 Jul Under 6 North/Green vs WPH Cherrybrook FC a - Win (6-3)

Chilly Mornings

Chilly start to the morning did not deter the boys from putting on another great show. Dylan got straight in scoring 1st goal of the match, Knox, Stephen and Xavier had plenty of energy keeping Cherrybrook on their Toes, and Brae having his birthday had a great match to celebrate. Great Teamwork Boys


8 Jul Under 8 North/Black vs Roselea FC c - Win (8-1)

Report

Fantastic effort by the boys today despite being down on numbers. Gus and Rorey were on fire with their goal scoring! Great effort by Joel in both halves, and Brendan's defence was spot on. Well done boys, and a very great outcome!


8 Jul Under 8 North/Yellow a vs Hills Hawks FC b - Loss (1-2)

vs Hills Hawks Yellow B

A great, close game of football between the Hills Hawks teams.
Yellow A took the lead via Cooper M before Yellow B came back to lead, and Yellow A fought hard until the end in a close finish.
Player of the week - Kiana.
Well played team!


15 Jul Under 8 North/Black vs Beecroft SC - Win (6-3)

Report

Another great effort by the boys today despite the cold and at times wet weather! Brendan's goalkeeping was on point and is commended for his defence in the second half. Goals scored by Gus and Rorey were fantastic. Special mention to Gus' long shot from just before the half way line, and Brayden's shot that almost went in from the goal line! Great game!!


15 Jul Under 8 North/Yellow a vs Pennant Hills FC - Loss (2-6)

Vs Pennant Hills 15th July

A hard fought and close first half against probably the best team in the competition, Pennant Hills.
The Hawks scored two goals in the second half to Lewis and Sabella, but Pennant Hills were too strong today, running out 6-2 winners.
Player of the week - Josh.
Good effort team!


22 Jul Under 8 North/Yellow a vs WPH Cherrybrook FC b - Win (3-2)

vs WPH Cherrybrook b 21st July

Lewis scored a goal before the spectators had taken their seats after some good lead up work from Lachie.
The Hawks second goal was close to goal of the season with a good save from Cruz followed by a string of passes from Kiana to Lachie to Harlon who scored a great goal.
The recent concentration at training on positions, getting into space and passing are really starting to pay off.
A second goal to Lewis was responded to by 2 goals from WPH setting up a really close final few minutes where the Hawks had to defend multiple corners. There was some great work by Kiana in goal.
Player of the week - Trey O.
Well done Hawkies!


29 Jul Under 8 North/Black vs Normanhurst FC - Win (4-2)

Report

Another well played game by the boys. Great goals scored by Rorey and Joel in the first half. Normanhurst gave us some tough competition in the second half which was met with 2 goals scored by Gus in the final minutes of the game. Special mentions to Kai for his outstanding defence, Brendan and Joel for their goalkeeping. Well done!


29 Jul Under 8 North/Yellow a vs Roselea FC - Loss (1-8)

vs Roselea July 29th

The Hawks were up against good opposition this week, and Cooper was kept busy in goal in the first half and pulled off some great saves. Sabella and Harlon tried hard up front, Trey, Kiana and Ella did some good work at the back and Lachie was solid in the middle.
The 2nd half was similar with lachie kept busy in goal, Lewis trying hard up front with Cruz, and Josh good at the back. Cooper scored a goal for the Hawks in the second half, but Roselea were a bit better today.
Good effort Hawks!


U9 to U19

1 Jul U11/Red vs WPH Cherrybrook FC - Forfeited by opposition

R13: Vs WPH Cherrybrook FC

Game forfeited by opposition.


1 Jul U15/4 vs Roselea FC - Win (6-1)

Excellent end of the Season!

That's right, we're finishing the season in 1st position! After 4 games we were bottom of the table now we can celebrate winning the League. A fantastic 4-1 win in a game that had it all.
It's amazing to see what our team have been doing to get this performance - excellent team work and skills developed during this season.
Well done boys - we are proud of you all!

Time to focus on the semi-finals now!!! GO HAWKS!!!


8 Jul U11/Red vs Gladesville Ravens SC - Draw (2-2)

R14: Vs Gladesville Ravens SC

Our opponents the Gladesville Ravens were just as competitive today as they were back in R7. Our two GK's Sam H & Saxon were amazing in defence and kept the Raven's to 2. Tom had a great game up front scoring our 2 goals for the game. Great passing by Aaron and Ben and an awesome display of foot skills by Bianca were amongst the many match highlights in a game that could have gone either way but ultimately (and justly) was a drawn result at 2-2. An amazing effort by all the team today - well done Reds!!


8 Jul U15/4 vs WPH Cherrybrook FC - Win (5-1)

Hills Hawks x WPH Cherrybrook FC

A 5-1 win yesterday morning agains WPH Cherrybrook FC which keeps us in an excellent position in the table results.
It was a great performance throughout the team with goals from Aaron, Olly, Luan, Jamie and Olly again. We really are coming together so well as a team and it's important at this time of the season.
Finals are now guaranteed for us this year, which was our beginning of season goal, and now it's a time to think and work hard for the Premiership title - what will be satisfying given our forfeited result from a couple of weeks ago.
Our players are ready to give their best for the team and our club!
GO HAWKS!!!


8 Jul U9/Blue vs Ryde Panthers FC - Loss (5-7)

Under 9 Blue V's Ryde Panthers FC

Today we fought hard against a tough opposition, very unlucky to come away with a loss. Some good team work from everyone, especially James Josh and Rubi. A big "Thank you" to Finn and Blake for helping us out. Our goals today were scored by; Matthew, Jack, Sam and Finn. Some great goalie work from Marcus.


15 Jul U11/Red vs Ryde Saints United FC - Draw (2-2)

R15: Vs Ryde Saints United FC

The last time we played the Saints back in May at their home ground we were on the losing end of a 5-3 match result. Playing at home today we appeared a lot more confident in our plays and our communication had improved considerably. Although not the win we were hoping for, our Hawks were definitely the dominant team on the day and were unlucky not to win. Lucas & Sam (Timmy Cahill) Grocott were our 2 goal scorers today. Our 2 GKs Tom & Riley were amazing as were Aaron with his great runs and defensive effort & Lex with his great passing. Congratulations guys & gal!!

Under 9 Blue V's Normanhurst FC

Today was purple sock day, it was so good to see all the kids and parents getting behind this wonderful initiative. Today the team was on fire, we played like a team, we played with enthusiasm and intensity and we supported one another in all aspects of the game, team work at it's best! Today's goals were scored by Lachie and Sam, some great goal keeping by Marcus, fantastic defence by James, Josh and Max, hot on the attack was Matthew, Rubi and Jack. We look forward to another great game next week!


29 Jul U11/Red vs Normanhurst FC - Loss (3-6)

R17: Vs Normanhurst FC

Another cold & early start at home this Saturday for our Reds and their supporters and despite the dulcet tones of Whitney Houston playing painfully in the distance all players were ready to take on Normanhurst FC. Ben had an awesome game scoring 2 of our 3 goals. Toby putting away our 3rd after a great throw in by Lex. GK's Sam H & Riley had great games and defended their goals as best they could. However it was not to be today for our Hawks with our opponents scoring 6 of their own. Congratulations Normanhurst! However despite the loss our Reds today made us all proud by wearing their 'purple socks' in support of Pancreatic Cancer Research. Well done team!!!


29 Jul U15/4 vs Roselea FC - Win (4-0)

Semi-Final - Game 1

Excellent results on our 1st Semi-final Game - 4x0 win to start this Championship!
We're very proud of our boys for their team work and performance today.
Congratulations boys - GO HAWKS!!!


29 Jul U16/3 vs Thornleigh Thunder - Draw (1-1)

Thornleigh Thunder 1 Hills Hawks 1

There was a feeling pre-game that this was going to be tight and one goal may be enough but in the end the teams couldn’t be separated as they fought out a competitive draw. It could be argued that whilst Hawks just edged it, a draw was about right however Hawks can rightly feel aggrieved as they missed out on a vital victory not only by a mere 4 mins but a penalty that should have not been awarded. The desire and commitment shown by the Hawks players was outstanding as they took the game to a strong Thornleigh side who hadn’t lost all season. Starting with a holding midfielder and two pacey wingers to support the lone striker in 4-3-2-1 formation, Hawks found clear cut chances hard to come by but Tahlia saw a scuffed shot saved as did Cal while Nick came close after the keeper had fumbled a corner. The corner count soon added up in Hawks favour but whilst the quality of corners from Nick, Lachie and Daniel R couldn’t be faulted, they flew harmlessly across the penalty area as nobody took a chance to connect with them. So much was Hawks dominance in the midfield, with Cal just sitting behind Jarrod & Daniel R, that it took a full 17 mins for Lukas in goal to touch the ball. In doing so, he strained his already injured back and had to swap with Sam. This change seemed to bring out some fight in Thornleigh as the # 9 hit well over the top before Sam made an excellent save from # 16 which he made look very easy indeed. Nick then came close 5 mins before the break.

The second half continued in the same vein with Lachie seizing on a miscue but firing just wide which was followed by a Nick lob which was cleared up. Sam was also called into action quite a few times as he chose a safety first option to good effect by punching away some dangerous looking crosses. Hawks almost found the unlikeliest of goalscoring heroes (or heroines, for that matter) when on 50 mins, Tiff found herself in a great position but the ball just didn’t drop enough as she got under it and fired over. Jarrod then picked out Nick at the back post but the angle was just too tight and the keeper saved comfortably. On 59 mins, Thornleigh missed a good chance as the # 16 fluffed his lines with a free header from a great corner but then with just 9 minutes remaining Hawks found the breakthrough as Jarrod seized on an uncleared bouncing ball and fired in from just a few yards out. It wasn’t the prettiest goal but no doubt the most important scored so far, this season. Hawks now had something to protect and as human nature kicked in, found themselves defending much deeper than they had all game. Thornleigh were now throwing caution to the wind and managed to get a very lucky break with just 4 mins remaining as the ball was adjudged to have hit Daniel R’s arm. It would have been deemed harsh in any event as it was fired at him from point blank range and was clearly ball to arm and not arm to ball but when Daniel confirmed after the game that it hit him on the shoulder, it made it even harder to take. The penalty still had to be scored though and the # 19 left Sam with absolutely no chance as he picked out the top right-hand corner where the spiders live.

Most Hawks players would have been content with a draw pre-game but post-game the feeling was very different as all of their hard work had been cruelly snatched away in such dubious fashion. A win would have put Hawks in a commanding position to reach the grand final but there is still all to play for and on this performance, they should have no fear going into the remaining two games. It was hard to single out players for praise as the whole team played so well but three players that epitomised Hawks fighting spirit were Jacob, AJ and Matt.


29 Jul U9/Blue vs Putney Rangers SC - Win (4-2)

Under 9 Blue V's Putney Rangers SC

What a stunning day for a great game of soccer! Today was another nail biter against a very strong Putney Rangers. After a very even first half we went into the break at nil all, both teams were playing some great football on what was a very challenging pitch. In the second half we put on some quick goals to take an early 3 nil lead. With only ten minutes to go Putney responded with two very quick goals to take the game to a very tight 3-2, at this stage the game could've gone either way with both teams having some great attempts on goal. After a sensational corner kick from Matthew, Sam finished it off with a fantastic goal to seal the match with a 4-2 victory. Some awesome work from our goalie Marcus with Josh, James and Max being very solid in defense, Jack, Matthew and Lachie were hot on the attack with Rubi and Sam in the Midfield providing great support. Today our goals were scored by; Jack, Matthew, Lachie and Sam. What a great effort from everyone!
