The Ladies 2s were confident going into the game against Oxford 1s today but things did not go exactly to plan, when Oxford scored after a couple of minutes.Unfortunately this didn't really give Hawks the kick they needed and Oxford continued to have most of the play of the 1st half. Oxford scored a 2nd goal in the 1st half and Hawks went into the half time team talk with Sue Clark, 2-0 down.

Sue provided lots of wise words and the kick the 2s ladies needed, as Hawks started the 2nd half a lot more lively. Connections were made on passes and the 2s looked a lot more dangerous when they got into the final third. Hawks were rewarded for their improved hockey when Claire Werlinger scored from open play after some great hockey from Rowena Hearn and Emily Wilkins.

Hawks continued to put pressure on Oxford, this paid off when the 2s were awarded their 2nd penalty corner of the game. Kara Kerr hit from the top of the D and got a deflection off an Oxford defender. With the score at 2-2, Hawks were back in the game.

Hawks played with more confidence and started to beat Oxford players to the ball, which was a massive improvement to the first half performance. The Hawks defence worked really well together, defending well and going forward positively when they could. Man of the match, Emily Taylor worked really hard throughout the game, putting in some great tackles and getting into the opposition D with skilful ways and great passing. 

With 30seconds to go, Oxford tackled on the half way line and threaded the ball through to a forward who had made a good lead. Linda made the first save but the Oxford forward picked up the ball again and calmly slotted the ball into the bottom left hand corner to give Oxford the 3-2 win.

Hawks look forward to playing Epsom at BRN on the 13th February.
