After playing so well last week against top of the league side Reading, the Ladies 3s this week travelled to Amersham and Chalfont knowing we were in for another tough challenge. This time we played in the stunning grounds of the Royal Masonic School for Girls, and a newer, slightly bouncy pitch meant things were tricky from the off.

Hawks started well, enjoying a significant amount of possession and keeping the ball in our attacking half which rattled Amersham. They were a physical side and it was a tough test of both our character and fitness to keep battling with them for 70 mins. Nevertheless we really took the game to them. Some great passing work between all members of the team brought the ball on from defence to forwards and we were able to get some shots away.

Amersham were a strong side and after 7mins they broke the deadlock, only to do so again twice more before the end of the first half. We went into half time knowing that when we concentrated and played our game, we were capable of getting the ball around them and creating some good chances for ourselves. Some great link up play between man of the match Row Hearn and forwards Lizzie Siese and Kath Crook meant we continued to look threatening going forward however a strong goalkeeping performance by Amersham meant we weren’t able to get that all important goal.

Right at the death we were awarded a penalty flick and although we were not able to convert this, the score line of 5-0 does not do our performance justice. We played our own game and looked really strong going forward, and having started the second half of the season off with our two toughest games, we now have the impetus to push forward against Oxford in next week’s must win game.
