The Ladies 2s travelled to Southgate, aware they would be in a for a tough game as their opposition play in the league above.But they were looking forward to the challenge and the opportunity to play a lot of hockey!
Southgate started really well and immediately put the Hawks defence and GK, Olivia Clark under pressure. However the score remained at 0-0 with Hawks defending really well. Southgate broke the deadlock 15 minutes into the 1st half but Hawks responded really well and created a number of chances in the opposition D.
Southgate scored another goal before half time but Hawks were happy with their performance so far and believed they could score goals and get back into the game.
Hawks started the 2nd half very well and continued to create opportunities in the D. The Southgate keeper made a number of good saves but Hawks learnt that they need to be more clinical when they get chances. Southgate scored a further 3 goals and the final score was 5-0 but Hawks should feel positive about their performance and all the attacking opportunities they created.
Man of the match, Ellie had a great game and defended really well throughout the entire game, chatting to everyone about marking and picking up players. Special mention to Lucy and Olivia who also got man of the match votes and had great games as well.Hawks look forward to the County Tournament this weekend before the league starts on the 19th September.
