Whitehawk fans were treated to another dramatic match at the enclosed ground on Saturday against Maidenhead as the Hawks managed to overturn a two goal deficit and come away with all three points.
With Whitehawk becoming accustomed to squandering a 2 goal lead more than once this season the boot was on the other foot this time round. Maidenhead had the far better start kicking downhill but not taking their chances until the 27th minute when Ben Wright finished from close range off a Harry Pritchard corner. Whitehawk were struggling in midfield without Sam Deering who was on the bench, Maidenhead continuing the pressure in the second half and were rewarded within minute of the start with an excellent effort from Kieron Forbes.
Whitehawk seemed to settle into some quality football which paid off 12 minutes into the second half with some quality Individual play from Shamir Fenelon. Whitehawk continued the pressure and looked good for an equaliser which eventually came from Danny Mills 15 minutes from time to the eruption from the Hawks Ultras who kept up the momentum as always from the terraces.
Hawks looking more balanced flowing substitutions bringing on Sam Deering and latterly Jake Robinson coming back from injury, it was clear that the Hawks were far from happy with the draw as Jordan Rose banged the winner in right on full time.
Yet again the fans were treated to a dramatic and eventful match which had it all, the Ultras were shown the gratitude of the players as they applauded their fans at the South Stand after the whistle.
Hawks go 5th in the table and will take confidence in how they turned this game around.
