Report | Whitehawk 3-1 Sevenoaks Town

Report by Rumyana Penzova

Convincing Whitehawk beat Sevenoaks Town 3-1 on Saturday afternoon at The Enclosed Ground to further cement their place in the top 4, and, respectively in the play-offs.

The Hawks were the dominant side throughout the game, with ongoing pressing all through the first half.

Attacking in front of the Din End for the first half, it was not long before it erupted into cheers: Alfie Rogers effortlessly headed in the Hawks’ first goal for the afternoon – a thing of beauty!

A little over twenty minutes later Rogers netted in Whitehawk’s second goal in the game and made the Enclosed Ground almost ecstatic.

The guests had a few good runs and shots off target during the first forty-five minutes, but nothing more – the Hawks were fabulously conducting the events on the pitch, creating chances, and passing flawlessly.

The closest the Oaks got to Freeman’s goal was perhaps in the 39th minute, but Freeman firmly denied any sort of potential action.

Towards the end of the first half, the game’s tempo died down a bit, and the Oaks tried to pursue a goal to get back on their feet, but alas – nothing came.

2-0 to the Hawks at the break.

The second half began with a shot off target for the guests, but the Hawks had something completely different in mind – another goal up their sleeve, this time slotted in the back of the net by Nathan Cooper in the 53rd minute!

It was shaping into an even half, the second one, as the Oaks were investing persistent efforts to reach Whitehawk’s goal with no fruition.

They, however, managed to net one back via their number seven David Kawa in the 81st minute.

It all ended fair and square at 3-1 for Whitehawk, and it was an afternoon to be proud of – Sevenoaks Town have been in great form recently in the league, but not today. They drop to 6th place after today’s loss, and the Hawks are in 4th, only one point behind the third placed Beckenham Town.

The Hawks will have the chance to go up to 2nd place if they manage to secure a win in the midweek fixture against Chatham Town, the current 2nd placed team, so that means only one thing – come support our Hawks: Tuesday, 14th March, 19:45, The Enclosed Ground.

See you there!
