Ladies'3s in a well deserved 2-0 win!

12 March 2016

Ladies' 3s 2 - 0 Aylesbury Ladies 1s

Hawks travelled to sunny Aylesbury, determined to put their last couple of disappointing results behind them and desperate for a win against the team in 10th spot

Hawks started the half with a great workrate which Aylesbury struggled to match in the heat. Heeding Lizzie's words to play a passing game, play flowed beautifully with the girls working really hard for each other. 

5 minutes in, driving down the right hand side, Becca found Beth on the line who (just as Nathan told us to do at training) drove to the byline and pulled back for Lizzie to convert. 1-0 to Hawks! 

The away side continued to pile on the pressure with great tackling from forward Olivia and solid distribution from Katie in the middle. 15 minutes into the half, Sophie decided she wanted a break so got herself a card and a breather. There was further disappointment when Becca took a ball to her hand blocking during a short corner and so off to A&E she had to go.

Although Aylesbury broke at times because of the pressure Hawks had upfront, the defence of Lucy and Nicky looked solid in the middle and before long, great work from Olivia upfront earned a short corner.

Cue a straight strike from MOM Lizzie into the bottom corner and Hawks went into half time 2-0 up!

The second half saw Hawks dominant and very comfortable in possession, passing across the pitch at leisure. Great work from half backs Rosie and Emily with lots of confidence and pace fed Laura and Harriet and led to multiple short corners in the second half.

Lizzie kept tonking the ball back to injector Nicky and Hawks were unlucky not to convert any of these chances. The umpire really wasn't fond of Soph who had another card-break during the second half but Hawks managed the game well with 10 players.

In the dying minutes of the game, a couple of questionable decisions (with Nicky, Lucy and Emily all feeling hard done by) led to a a short corner for Aylesbury to finish off the match 

Cue Team D clearing with ease to keep a clean sheet and a well deserved 2-0 win!
