With a strong squad of 16 players and the rain holding off, it was set to be a good match away against Witney. 

Not on home turf, Hawks seemed slow to start. However, the club's top goal scorer, Dette Wagerfield soon got us 1-0 up by drawing in the goal keeper and tucking it in the corner.

Although Hawks took an early lead, there was no time to relax as we still needed to keep adding to our goal total to stay top of the league! Some excellent attacking from Rachel potter and commitment from the rest of the forward line saw us win multiple short corners; which, despite some great strikes from Linda and Mary, we were unable to convert. 

With Hawks ahead, we were still in a positive frame of mind and the pressure was maintained from determined half back Lizzie Wray with some excellent stick skills driving towards Witney's defensive line. Some excellent teamwork culminated in a goal from Jenny, bringing Hawks to 2-0 in the closing minutes of the first half.

After what must have been a fighting team talk at half time, the young Witney side upped the intensity, working our defensive unit well. Despite the opposition earning some short corners, Purdy made some excellent saves in goal. In addition, our defensive players maintained great composure with Bella running out hard, barely giving them a chance to take a strike and Deborah making some well-timed block tackles which enabled us to channel the ball out of danger. 

Hungry for more goals, Hawks continued to layer on the pressure and with the majority of possession, we were able to show our dominance and keep the ball within their defensive 25. Some excellent leads were made by Forward, Buffy, which helped set up a further two goals scored by Dette Wagerfield and Jenny Myatt respectively. 

The final whistle blew at 4-0 to Hawks; a well-deserved win.  Jenny Myatt was voted player of the match for her outstanding performance.

Next week we take on Maidenhead, away. Let's see if we can keep our 'no goals conceded' streak up!
