Ladies' 1s win away at Bristol

13 February 2016

Ladies' 1s 4 - 2 Bristol Uni Ladies 1s

Oxford Hawks travelled west to Bristol and came home with all three points against the University side. The game didn't start to plan however as Bristol missed a glorious opportunity to score in the opening thirty seconds. After that Hawks settled well and played some lovely passing hockey, stringing some beautiful moves together. They opened the scoring after six minutes when player of the game Becky Odlin cleverly deflected in from Ella Cusack's cross. Moments later the advantage was doubled, after strong attacking play from Lucy Millington. Her ball in ended with Heather Francis, who coolly flicked in with her reverse stick. It wasn't all one way traffic however, with Jess Hughes called into action in the Hawks goal, cleaning smothering a one on one attack. Hawks extended their lead after Millington passed to Abi Flory, who cleverly deflected the ball across the face of goal leaving an easy tap in for Kathryn Poulter. Just before half time Bristol pulled one back, with a stunning backhand strike into the roof of the net, to keep them in the game.

After half time the game became a bit scrappy, with both sides struggling to maintain periods of possession. Hawks regained their three goal cushion with a beautiful reverse stick strike from Millington, but it was cancelled out minutes later after the Bristol centre forward calmly converted a one on one chance. Neither side really tested the keepers for the rest of the game, with both defences staying strong, and the clock ran down to give Hawks the three points they were after.
