Ladies' 1s in a testing time at Trojans

28 November 2015

Ladies' 1s 2 - 6 Trojans Ladies 1s

Oxford Hawks made the short trip down the A34 to face Trojans, a few points below them in the table. Trojans started strongly and Hawks keeper Linda Billington was forced into a save in the opening minutes. Shortly afterwards the home side's continued pressure paid off and they pounced on the rebound from a shot to go a goal up. A few minutes later they doubled their advantage, and then scored a third with a well worked short corner routine, deflecting in from the right. Hawks struggled to get into their stride and just before half time Trojans scored again with a cross and first time shot from the left.

After the break Hawks came out a different side, stringing some lovely passing moves together. Their possession paid off as Lucy Millington used her skills in the area to open up space for a shot which she buried into the corner. However Trojans had the perfect response, slamming home a short corner strike. This didn't phase Hawks who continued to play good hockey, with Millington and Ella Cusack playing good flowing hockey in the midfield. They scored again, after a beautiful move from the back ended with Abi Flory carving her way through the Trojans midfield. She then played a pinpoint pass into Lucy Stewart who cleverly deflected past the keeper. Again however Trojans replied with a goal of their own, and despite more good hockey from Hawks the clock ticked down and they left empty handed. A much better second half from Hawks leaves coach Andy Clark with plenty of positives to reflect on, but overall disappointment from the day.
