Philly Hawks take home the Eastern Regional Cup!
Our Lady Hawks had a strong day of footy teaming up with the Columbus Cats. All players were a force to be reckoned with across the pitch, with every player getting multiple touches and shots at goal, in scrappy games against the Boston Lady Demons, Baltimore Lady Eagles, and NY Lady Magpies.
An impressive 43 point win over North Carolina Tigers early in the day had the Hawks set to play for the cup in the final match of the day. Their opponent was a New York team that had shut out that same Tigers club by 59. The task was daunting, but the Hawks would not to be denied!
With a stifling backline, led by Co-Best and Fairest winner Ryan Henry, the Hawks kept the Pies in check for the first half. With this momentum and confidence, the relentless midfield, featuring Co-Best and Fairest, Duncan Jones, kept the pace of the game in the Hawks favor, allowing forwards like Jon Ginsberg and Dan Milbourne free reign of the goal square. After full-time the Hawkers were on top, with the Eastern Regional Championship for the first time in club history!
We’d like to extend a big thanks to all of the clubs who came out to Regionals to make it such a huge success. We’d also like to thank our mates at FourNTwenty for keeping everyone full of pies all day, and Cavanaugh’s Riverdeck for a rippa of an after party!
