We had a strong side and were determined to win. We started well and most of the time we were in the attacking half of the pitch but we could not get the ball in the back of the net – sounds familiar doesn’t it. Then Maddy scored the first goal and things began to look up.
At half time Deborah said “We are going to win this. It is just a question of how many goals we get”. Everyone chipped in with suggestions and we went out there even more aggressively. Even the backs were the wrong side of the half way line occasionally. This left us open to a break-away but Emily in goal was a match for them and they never scored. The constant pressure paid off and the our goal numbers began to increase. Maddy completed her hat-trick and got one more. Alice got one, Clar got another and Polly also scored for the first time ever for Hawks.
Maddy had a brilliant game and was almost unanimously voted player of the match.
