It was always going to be a tough one.  The only time Wychwood had lost was to us before Christmas.  They hated that and the air was blue then. 

Wychwood started strongly but with a few Hawks’ defensive errors were soon ahead by two goals to nil.  We then got our act together and in the second quarter piled on the pressure.  We then had 6 short corners in a row which we could not convert - despite practising them at training! 

A half-time talk from captain Becky and coach Josh motivated the team.  However Wychwood scored almost immediately. The one of the youngsters took the ball up the right wing and did a lovely cross to Linda who popped it past the keeper.  The score was then 3-1 to Wychwood.  They managed one more goal before the final whistle blew with the score 4-1.

Thanks must go to Jacs and Rachel for umpiring and Josh for coaching.  Thanks also to our supporters who sadly included Purdy with a broken collar bone from a cycling accident.

Voting for man of the match was very close with Issy Gibson losing out by one vote to Maddie Dale.  They both had excellent games.
