HITMEN 40 HACKNEY 50

Sunday July 10, 2011
The Buxton Hitmen were left disappointed after their ten point defeat on Sunday against the Hackney Hawks.

The Buxton team were confident they would take all three points from the meeting but after a team change round due to the new averages the usual pairings were changed and the Hitmen struggled to make an impression over the youthful Hackney side.

The return match at the Hawks’ Lakeside home is on Friday where the Buxton team will be hoping to get their revenge. The next home action for the Hitmen will be on Sunday the 7th of August against the Isle of White Islanders.

Results:

BUXTON 40: Ben Taylor 9+1, Robert Branford 8, Luke Priest 8, Dean Felton 7+2, Adam Allott 6, Paul Burnett 2+1, Ryan Blacklock 0

HACKNEY 50: Barrie Evans 17, Ben Hopwood 10+2, Paul Starke 10+1, Ben Morley 5+1, Brandon Freemantle 5+1, Marc Owen 3+1, David Mason R/R
