Hawks U16 Girls were looking forward to playing Oxford in the local derby cup game today and were raring to go from the first whistle, with Poppy Webb scoring after one minute had been played.
It was another good team performance, building on the last game against Reading. Hawks played some lovely attacking hockey with hat tricks from Siena Robbins, Row Hearn and Poppy Webb. Holly Senior, Imogen Joyce and Maddie Dale also scored a goal each.
Unfortunately a number of Oxford's players were injured and were unable to play today as a result, therefore it wasn't as competitive as our normal local derby games, but Hawks still had to defend well and GK Cora had to make a number of good saves to keep a clean sheet.
Hawks look forward to playing Marlow in the next round on the cup on the 19th February.
