L3s frustrated by 1-1 draw with Reading 2As

Ladies' 3s 1 - 1 Reading Ladies 2A

Hawks Ladies 3s entertained Reading 2As keen to stretch their unbeaten run in the league. Hawks started the game the stronger side with lots of possession and neat switches through Katie Merrick in the centre of the pitch. Megan Sloan drove the ball into the circle from the right on a number of occasions but nobody was on hand on the far post to open the scoring. Reading defended well which frustrated Hawks and there was lots of turn-over due to the lack of patience. However, Hawks broke the deadlock through a scruffy short corner. The strike was not clean but through a number of deflections and lack of control, the ball popped up by the post and Beth Nagle was on hand to slot the ball home. Reading responded with a goal of their own shortly after; a straight strike found the ball nestling in the back of the Hawks goal, 1-1 at half time.

Hawks piled on the pressure in the second half. Attacks down both wings and lots of possession in the circle, but it was going to be one of those frustrating days in front of goal. Lizzie Siese came close on two occasions but the goal-keeper was alert and made some tremendous saves to keep Reading in the game. Hawks kept the ball pace high, wave after wave of attacks but it wasn’t to be. Reading finished the game with a series of short corners but great defending thwarted their attempts on goal and the game finished 1-1
