The game kicked off with a great start for Hawks, as Maddie quickly and neatly slotted a goal in the back of the net off an amazing deflection from the P-spot. The game carried on, short corner after short corner but Hawks could just not convert find that second goal. Kidlington defence were strong with some big hitters despire our brave attempts including some from Emma Milne who attempted to jab at the ball mid hit. the innere displayed a great performance (Emma F and Charlotte) as they kept the ball moving around the attacking D.1-0 going into half time…
The second half was always going to work in Hawks’ favour as Kidlington had a small squad. However, the defence were put to the test and Susan and Becky made some good tackles as backs and Maya had to make some good saves too. We finally found our second goal which was a pass to Rachael who put the ball in the back of the net helped by some fantastic passages of play from Jane H& Tanya, as well as Jane C and Chloe supporting in the halfs line. Special mention to Blanche, playing out of the forward line for the first time this season, venturing out from the backs line and to Buffy for her super non stop effort tracking up and down the pitch in both attacking and fefending mode!
The whistle blew, short corner for Hawks. Even Susan at this point was seen up in the attacking D! Pulled out by Rachael, the ball went straight to Lotty, and for fear of not keeping her record of scoring each match, did an enormous smack it to the back of the goal! 3-0 Hawks, and MOM went to Lotty.
And thank you to Dan for umpiring!
