The Ladies 2s were up against Wimbledon this week. Wimbledon had a good result the weekend before, so Hawks knew it was going to be a tough game even before the match had started.
The game started well with equal possession. However after 10 minutes of play Wimbledon managed to convert a short corner. Shortly after, Wimbledon scored again. But Hawks never gave up, with positivity from Kara in the middle. Hawks battled hard and won many short corners, but unfortunately were not able to convert any of them until Helen smashed the ball towards the goal, deflecting off a defenders stick, making it 2-1 going into half time.
After half time Wimbledon came out stronger than before and scored 2 more goals, making the score 4-1. But this did not stop Hawks, the 2s executed a great counter attack which left the Wimbledon's defence watching with amazement as Mary and Lex did a beautiful 1-2 around the keeper making the score line 4-2. Unfortunately, Wimbledon managed to match our beautiful play and scored 2 in quick succession, making the score 6-2. But Hawks never stopped fighting, man of the match Emma Hunter worked tirelessly in midfield and battled against the Wimbledon midfield, coming out with the ball and creating a number of attacking opportunities.
To make up for all their hard work and battling, in the last 5 minutes Hawks gained a short corner which was taken by Helen, who again slotted the ball perfectly past the keeper hitting the back board.
The final score was 6-3, Hawks now look forward to playing Banbury on Saturday 3rd October.
