HAST welcomed their crosstown rivals the Gavit Gladiators in what would be one of the more entertaining matches the Hawks played all season. On the same night the Hawks were honoring their outstanding senior class of 2019, they were able to grab an early lead thanks to the efforts of freshman midfielder Cesar Vega who got loose in the box and guided a ball into the side net. Gavit came storming back in the second half though, relentlessly pressuring the Hawks, who seemed to run out of gas. Unable to create anything on offense, the Hawks were forced to defend which allowed the Gladiators to eventually earn a penalty kick and a late winner in the dying moments of the game. Final score: 2-1
