6-2 Victory for the Ladies 2s

22 October 2016, 12:00, Banbury Road North (Near)

Ladies' 2s 6 - 2 West Hampstead Ladies 1s

After a run of frustrating games, Oxford Hawks Ladies 2s got the result they were looking for against West Hampstead, winning 6-2. 

Starting strong and dominating the game from the starting whistle, Hawks gained an early short corner.  This was cleanly scored by Kara Kerr with a straight strike into the left corner.  The score line continued to grow with the next goal coming from Fran Jolley who scored from a rebound from the opposition’s keeper during open play.  This solid 20 minutes of play put Hawks in a good position until West Hampstead threatened this with a strike across the Hawks goal which was deflected into the goal making the score line 2-1. 

Gaining composure again, Hawks then scored a further two goals; the first scored by Olivia Stickland and the second by Mary Douglas.  Both these goals were scored at close range with Hawks owning the space around the West Hampstead keeper.  With a 4-1 lead to Hawks, West Hampstead upped their tempo and pressed harder on the Hawks defence after half time. This resulted in another hard fought goal from West Hampstead taking the score line to 4-2. 

With coach Rory rapidly ageing on the sideline, this goal was the kick that Hawks needed to focus them back into playing as they had in the first half. The team as a whole upped their tempo yet again with great supporting runs all over the pitch.  Hie Sawyer put away the fifth goal with a strong strike across the D, swiftly followed by the last goal of the game, scored by a first time sweep from Em Wilkins. Finishing the game with a 6-2 win has given the team more confidence to take into the next games before Christmas to consolidate their rising place in the league table
