|Opposition||M201-1 Oxford Uni Men|
|Venue||Kendrick School, 41 London Road, Reading, RG1 5BN|
|Result||W 2 - 0 (25:16 25:10)|
Really positive start for this season's new Hawks line-up; a debut match, in fact, for Marcin & Aman.
Hawks worked very well together and looked fairly organised and coordinated throughout.
Oxford Uni brought a large squad with a number of new, untried players. They were playing with more than one inexperienced player on court at a time, a circumstance that Hawks were able to exploit.
The scoreline at 25:16, 25:10 reflects in particular some solid serving by Hawks. In the first set, Aman then Alan each served 5 in a row. In the 2nd set, Paul served 12 times in a row.
MVP was awarded to Julien without whose adaptability and quality of attack the Hawks would have been considerably diminished in strength.
