Easingwold Hawks U12s v York RI U12s - York FA Cup Quarter Final ...

Saturday 23rd December, 2023

A bright morning at the Acorn Rugby Club saw the young Hawks having to wait for their quarter final to begin, following a 45 minute delayed kick-off.

However, the Easingwold team refused to let it affect their nerves and despite York RI playing one division higher in the league, our players dominated the game right from the start.

Fifteen minutes in, a great team effort in midfield and a superbly lofted ball from Christian saw Bobby power the ball into the back of the net, Easingwold taking the lead, 1-0.

This was quickly followed by a lovely passing move from Sam and Rory, leading to Bobby being brought down in the box; his calm penalty-finish took the Hawks to 2-0.

Another chance came from a well-struck corner-ball from Kayden, but Easingwold couldn't convert.

York RI pushed back hard and started to look dangerous, but with the incredibly hard-working Easingwold defence of Jack, Tom and Dawid and with Elsie in goal making three amazing saves, Easingwold went into the break two goals up and with confidence high.

The start of the second half saw the Hawks under increased pressure; several substitutions brought fresh legs on but the York RI threats continued and finally they succeeded in scoring their first goal.
