Following their strong  victory yesterday against Isca, the Ladies First Team played National League side Sevenoaks at home, in the Investec Cup.

Hawks started the game with the same high intensity hockey they have been playing this season, against a very physical Sevenoaks team. Hawks had good possession throughout most of the first half but couldn’t capitalise on this,  struggling in the final third to make good the final pass. Towards the end of the first half, Sevenoaks had a series of  short corners  that were well defended  by Hawks with outstanding speed from Abi Flory, the number one runner. After some scrappy play, Sevenoaks took the lead making the score 0-1 at half time.

Throughout the second half Hawks continued to pile the pressure onto the visitors and following sustained possession and some great link up play, Hawks drew level after Becky Odlin’s shot was deflected at the post, past the keeper by  Katie Lowe. Hawks continued to drive forward and were looking for a another goal when the visitors broke free and scored their second, making the score 1-2. Hawks responded by keeping the pressure on the visitors and were again caught on the counter attack when a break from a Sevenoaks attacker meant the away team gained a 3-1 lead. Hawks refused to give in and continued to press forward, achieving a series of short corners, ending in a certain goal being stopped on the line by a defenders foot. Hawks were awarded a penalty stroke.  Lucy Stewart stepped up and fired the ball effortlessly past the Sevenoaks keeper to bring the score to 2-3.  With just a few minutes remaining Hawks piled on the pressure with a series of circle penetrations, everyone pushing for the equaliser. However Sevenoaks again caught Hawks on the break just before the whistle blew, making the final score a disappointing 2-4.

The team face Gloucester away next in their third match of the Investec Women’s Hockey League.
