Aegean Hawks F.C.

October 17th, 2004: Hawks 2 Village Settlements 3
The Hawks took the pitch vs a Village Settlements team coming off a bye week. The Hawks were unable to build on their commanding performance vs perennial league powerhouse Dynamos a fortnight before and fell to the African squad 3-2.

The Hawks scored first in the 20th minute when striker Craig Cochran robbed a defender in the box and somehow managed to slam a shot low and hard to the far post off a very difficult angle. Village was quick to answer by exploiting a flat Hawk back line to send a long ball onto the feet of a streaking forward who was able to win his battle with the Hawks center back and slot a shot past keeper Anthony Peters and into the goal in the 25th minute.

The game continued in a seesaw manner the rest of the first half until Village was able to strike again off a quick counter and score in the 40th minute. Halftime score, Hawks 1- Village Settlements - 2. The second half saw the Hawks pressing and finding many opportunities to score, but unable find the back of the net. Another misplay by the Hawks in front of the box allowed Village to extend their lead to 2 goals in the 70th minute. The rest of the game was all pressure by the Hawks. Alan Golden was able to beat three Village players to the line and deliver a driven cross to far side of the Village box, where Justin Bodiya ran onto to deliver a crushing volley into the net in the 78th minute. The Hawks pressed hard for the equalizer but were unable to find the net. That's how it ended. Tough luck, lots of work on finishing needed.
