A Town v Gown friendly against Oxford Uni 1's at Iffley Road saw the Ladies 2's continue preparations for the second half of their season. The game started at a fast pace with both teams enjoying plenty of possession, however, both teams lacked quality in the final third of the pitch to take advantage of good build up play. As the half went on it was the Uni who managed to convert their possession into chances on goal but the score remained 0-0 for the first half with some good work from the Hawks defence and Hawks keeper, Olivia Clark.
The start of the second half was much like the first until Uni scored 10 minutes in. Possession was given away cheaply which allowed the Uni to counter attack and finish calmly. Hawks tied to come back strong and push for an equaliser, creating some good opportunities from short corners and links between the midfield and forward line starting to click. However the Uni went on to score a second and third in quick succession to seal their victory. The Uni were deserving of the win although perhaps 3 goals against didn't reflect a very strong performance from Hawks who will hope to take and build on the form shown in this game.
