Hawks ladies 4s win 10 goal thriller

Ladies' 4s 6 - 4 Oxford Ladies 4s

A short drive down the road to Oxford hockey club saw Hawks ladies 4s battle to win in a ten goal thriller. The game was end to end right from the start and both defences were stretched. It was Oxford who took the lead following a series of penalty corners, an initial save by Evelyn Hargreaves saw the ball rebound to an Oxford player who scored at close range. Within minutes Hawks equalised through a well-rehearsed penalty corner; a neat one-two and Kim Williams found herself with space right in front of the goal and beat the advancing goal-keeper. Caz Batten and Rebecca Black connected well on the right but found it difficult to dispatch either a shot or cross as Oxford’s defence worked hard to shut the play down. Eventually Hawks capitalised with the pressure with a switch to the left, Lisa Scragg beat both defender and keeper to make it 2-1. However, the lead didn’t last long. Oxford’s quick ball down the right was played into the unmarked striker who made the scores level for half-time.

The team regrouped, we weren’t at our best, but it was our game to win as we knew we were the better side. However, concentration lapsed when the second half whistle went and Oxford scored an early goal. Hawks haven’t been behind in matches too often this year but it triggered the fight back. Lisa Scragg got her second of the match, a neat finish in the corner of the goal, which was followed up by Kim Williams who scored her second penalty corner; a similar move to her first. Lisa was unfortunate not to complete her hat trick (jug avoidance I think) as a smart move was finished off by Rebecca Black on the line to make it 5-3 and Holly Senior scored Hawks 6th goal after a break and a smart finish at the far post. Oxford scored a consolation goal but Hawks came away with a 6-4 victory and remain unbeaten at the top of the table.
