First away points for Ladies 4s

23 September 2017, 11:45

Ladies' 4s 1 - 1 Henley Ladies 2s

Despite a defeat the week before against the same opposition, Hawks entered this weeks game with optimism, confident that they could successfully build on their previous performance and come away with a good result. 

 

From the start Hawks came out strong; moving the ball round the pitch with pace and testing the Henley defence. 

 

Despite tight marking from the Hawks midfield, and the back line shutting down quick counter attacks, the Henley side managed to win a penalty corner just inside the first half. Quick reactions from the Henley injector saw the corner converted and Henley headed into the break with a 1-0 advantage. 

 

Words of wisdom from some of the more experienced Hawks players saw the side step up a gear as they started the second half. Both sides had some strong passages of play but neither side managed to convert any of their chances. That was soon to change as with only 5mins left on the clock, some quick small unit play up the right hand side of the pitch saw the ball make it into the danger zone. Some confusion from the Henley defence was punished by Alice Potter as she pounced on a stray clearance and swept the ball into the back of the net. 

 

Both sides battled to the final whistle blew. Although disappointed not to come away with a win, the Hawks side were proud of their team performance, which was a vast improvement on the week before.
