SMASHING 2ND LEAGUE GAME FOR L5s
26 September 2015, 10:30, Banbury Road North (Near)
Ladies' 5s 5 - 2 Henley Ladies 3s
Only ten minutes in to the game the positive start paid off. After a series short sharp passes the unbeatable Lotty scored from a straight strike in open play.
The positive play continued relentlessly which lead to the forward line working hard to secure the next goal. Rachael received the ball in the D allowing for a straight strike which Lotty was able to finish off and volley into the goal.
A few moments later the ball was skilfully passed up the pitch between the team then finally to fast paced Giorgia who passed to Rachael to smash it in the goal.
Henley wasn't content at backing down and started to claw their way back after 2 successful conversions off of short corners.
This minor lapse in concentration from the Hawks team then spurred them on to bring the last goal of the game from Giorgia who was able to deflect a super goal off of the post.
In the meantime bride to be Buffy, decided to deflect a ball into her own face causing her to fall to the floor and her twin sister to run to the rescue to survey the damage- luckily nothing too serious but a face mask is now needed for the next couple of weeks!!!
MoM caused lots of confusion as there were lots of mentions and four people tied - Lotty, Emma F, Giorgia and Kally. However the captain had the final say and Emma F was finally crowned after long debate.
With a junior heavy team it was an impressive showcase of a developing side, and another great win at the beginning of the season
