Hawks Gain First Victory of Spring 2016 WPL season with a 5-1 Rout of LESA FC
Take on the Defending WPL League Champions Capital City FC on Sunday April 24th in Rematch of Fall 2015 Helge Boes Cup Final
The Hawks (1-0-1) notched their first victory of the Spring 2016 campaign over Premier Division newcomers Luciano Emilio Futbol Academy FC by a score of 5-1. The squad pulled to a halftime 4-0 lead and never looked back on the way to a decisive victory. After a slow opening 10 minutes, the Hawks jumped out to a quick 4-0 lead after the next 15-20 minutes with a nice headed goal from Blake Miller, a beautiful ball from Lance Dotzman over the top and deftly tucked away by Chris Hennings, a great combo down the right finished off beautifully by Sam Scales, and a nice curling free-kick hit by Preston Wagner. The second half saw each team trade a pair of goals to finish the scoreline and set the stage for next week's showdown with Capital City FC. Cap City defeated the Hawks in the Helge Boes Cup final last season, denying the Hawks their 10th league crown, and appear to be in fine form to start the season.
