Hawks U14A Girls met Teddington in a Home Counties Premier League match.  It was a competitive match played in a good spirit – and a great game for both goalies, with plenty of attacking play at both ends.

Teddington were very nearly gifted an early goal, but fortunately Cora was more alert than her defence and calmly dealt with the one-on-one opportunity.  Having more fully engaged with the task in hand, Hawks spent much of the first half on the attack.  Tanya and Gemma were strong in mid-field, Jess went on several of her trademark runs the length of the pitch and Susie and Izzy R worked hard supporting the attacking play.  On the right wing, Emma S posed a persistent danger and nearly opened the scoring 20 minutes in.  A less than mobile Row had everything ‘stitched up’ at the back (or at least her right shin…) and got plenty of practice at defensive outletting to Holly, Annabelle and Emma K, who took up good positions to create width.  The Teddington (HiPAC) keeper was commanding in goal and kept her team in the game with a particularly cunning step over technique, but was forced to make a great save just before half-time.  Still 0-0 at the turn.

Hawks came out motivated by the Dizzy & Scraggy half-time talk (or maybe the Haribos?) and took the game to Teddington.  After some sustained pressure involving Izzy S, Izzy R and Holly, the breakthrough came when Emma S brought an end to the maelstrom of activity in front of goal with a lovely strike from the right.  1-0 to Hawks.  Sadly not for long – five minutes later, some relaxed marking was all the opportunity Teddington needed to draw level following a well worked passing manoeuvre.  The last chances of the match fell to Hawks, with Amelia’s shot going agonisingly wide of the post.  A well balanced match, with both teams happy to share the points in this challenging league.

Goal scorer: Emma S

Hawks U14As: Amelia, Annabelle, Cora, Emma K, Emma S, Gemma, Holly, Izzy R, Izzy S, Jessica, Rowena, Susie and Tanya
