Aegean Hawks F.C.

April 9th, 2005: Hawks - 4, Village Settlements - 1
The first game of the Spring 2006 season saw the Hawks in an early morning matchup vs. Village Settlements at Soccerplex field #23. With a solid winter of playing together and the addition of several good players, the Hawks looked to start their season campaign off on a good foot. The squad was able to overcome the absence of several key players to pull out a gritty 4-1 result against a solid Village Settlements team.

In the opening 10 minutes of the game, Village applied most of the pressure, but the Hawks were able to capitalize first off a nice sequence of passing from the defense to the middle of the pitch. A nice dummy by Yuri Sudhakar found Andy Zayas streaking at the edge of the box to provide the service which was smashed home by forward Watson Vaughan-Prather. The Hawks were able to push the score to 2-0 in the 15th when Marcos Araus was able to flick his header off a free kick onto the feet of Andy Zayas who beat the keeper easily with a shot to the corner. The rest of the first half saw Village applying pressure, but the score stood until halftime.

The second half saw the Hawks come out flat and Village was able to continue their pressure. The Hawks, however, were able to create more chances than Village off the counter but the score stood until the 70th minute when Village was able to capitalize on a defensive mixup and slot home a goal for a 2-1 scoreline. Again, Village pressured hard after the goal, but it was the Hawks that found the net again in the 75th minute when outside back Titou Fierro was able to penetrate on the overlap and tip toe up the opponents' goal line to smash a nice right-footed blast in the left upper 90. The Hawks finished well again and sealed the win in the 85th when striker Geoff Thompson was able to ditch a defender and blast a shot from 15 yards to the right upper netting.

A nice 4-1 victory to start the season and congrats go all around to the 12 players who made it out. The team will look to gain momentum in the WPL when it faces Reds in a Monday night matchup at EC Lawrence on 4/17.
