HAWKESBURY City’s NPL 3 team has come home from Dunbar Rovers’ Heffron Field with a 3-3 draw, in what was a good result according to coach Dean Bertenshaw.

The round two match was slated as a home game for Hawkesbury, although with last week’s rain, the match was moved to Dunbar’s synthetic turf.

Christopher El-Hayek, Alexander Clarke and Prasheel Sharma all scored for Hawkesbury in the draw.

Bertenshaw said the weather made playing very challenging.

“It was drizzling and windy. It was hard to play in. The wind played havoc with ball control,” he said.

Bertenshaw said it was pleasing to get a draw against Dunbar, particularly during the away game.

“They were a bit of a bogey team for us last year. That is our first decent result against them,” he said.

Later in the season, Dunbar’s scheduled home game will instead be played at Bensons Lane.

In round one, Hawkesbury had a 1-0 loss to Dulwich Hill.
