Hawks played their second friendly of the weekend on Sunday with a few changed faces from the previous day’s squad. They faced National League Conference East side St Albans, and took an early lead with a stunning reverse stick strike from Lyndsey White, her second of the weekend. St Albans levelled from the top of the area as the umpires played a good advantage after a Hawks foot in the area, but from then Hawks started to dominate possession, playing some lovely passing hockey throughout all lines of the team, despite the torrential rain. Hawks regained their lead after skilful play from Lucy Millington, fresh from her bronze medal with the England U18s over the summer, who drove past a few defenders before slotting past the keeper. In the second half Storm Sunderland extended their lead with a well worked penalty corner and Abi Flory completed the scoring moments later when she lifted the ball over the advancing keeper from close range.

The squad over the weekend included newcomers Ella Cusack from Buckingham, Miriam Pritchard from Oxford, Mary Douglas and Lisa Jelly; it also welcomed back Kirsty Chapman and Henri Gordon following the births of their babies.  In addition, it was great to see Lex Thomas back on the pitch following surgery on her ankle and Hawks juniors Storm Sunderland, Lyndsey White and Louisa Heathcote making their 1st XI debuts.  With lots to build on, Hawks can be pleased with a very promising start to the new season.
