Ladies 1s in frustrating loss to Swansea

10 October 2015

Ladies' 1s 0 - 2 Swansea City Ladies 1s

Oxford Hawks made the long drive to Swansea, to face the side currently top of the league. Hawks started well, but gradually allowed Swansea to dominate the first half. After 20minutes, Hawks unfortunately went 1-0 down from a well drilled short corner routine.  In a physical and fast paced game Hawks unfortunately conceded another short corner when again a slick routine was performed, making it 2-0 to the home side.

In true Hawks style the team never gave up and came out determined and battling in the second half. There was solid and brave goalkeeping from Miriam Pritchard stopping Swansea making it 3-0. Swansea pressed the back line hard but with composure and skill Hawks didn't crack. With an attacking and fast midfield Hawks looked threatening, with Lucy Stewart on excellent form, and gained more circle penetrations than Swansea in the second half however were not able to convert into clear cut chances.  It was a great game of hockey, of a high standard, but in the end a frustrating game for Hawks who came away with nothing, but they look forward to welcoming Swansea back home for another fast and physical game.
