The Ladies 2s were excited at the prospect of the 2nd half of the season kicking off. The first game against Wimbledon 1As was always going to be a tough one, as they are top of the table and they beat Hawks 6-3 in the 1st game at the start of the season.
The Ladies 2s welcomed Emily Taylor and Rowena Hearn to the team and were very excited about having such skilful wee ladies involved.
Wimbledon came out fighting and were immediately in Hawks D however Apples, April, Scraggle and Ellie worked really well together to keep Wimbledon at bay. Wimbledon did not seem to be deterred by this and kept on trying. However man of the match, Linda Billington made some great saves to keep the score at 0-0. April also made an amazing goal line save to keep the score at 0-0 as the first half ended.
Hawks went in at half time feeling confident that they could go out and get something from the 2nd half. Hawks began to put more pressure on the Wimbledon defence and were awarded a penalty corner for their efforts. Unfortunately, the 2s were unable to convert this opportunity. Hawks continued to soak up the pressure from Wimbledon and looked dangerous going forward as well.
The final score was 0-0 and Hawks were pleased about their start to the 2nd half of the season but also look forward to scoring some goals as well! Hawks play Banbury next weekend.
