This Saturday the Ladies 3s played a tough game against Reading Ladies 2s, losing 7-0. Hawks were missing a few key players, including our captain Lizzie, and had a few new people in the team. This resulted in our teamwork and pass completion not being up to standard. However, there was some good play from Hawks and we missed out on a few goals due to the Reading team's good defending. Unfortunately Reading had an early goal and lots of short corners resulting in many of their goals, and thanks to great defending and Linda’s amazing saving, Hawks managed to stop lots of other goals from happening.
Hawks were down 5-0 after the first half, and after some encouraging words from Mel, Hawks went out, with hope of doing better, for the second half. After some great passing and shots, which were unfortunately stopped by Readings defence, the game finished with Reading only scoring two goals in that half, resulting in a 7-0 lose.
After Linda’s excellence goal saving she was awarded man of the match. Hopefully we will not let this loss get to us and will play our next match with heads held high.
