Hawks raced into a 2-0 lead early on, but Newbury fought back to take a 6-5 advantage in at half-time.

The Royals extended their lead to three goals, but the Hawks battled back to level things up with five minutes to play.

However, with the full-time whistle looming, Newbury struck again to snatch the win.
