Oxford Hawks U16A's welcomed Reading to BRN for their first meeting of the season.
Reading showed their intentions from the very start and kept GK, Cora on her toes. However the oppostion ended up converting one of their chances early on and with the score at 1-0, Hawks started to up their game all over the pitch.
At 1-0 at half time, Hawks still had everything to play for and went out confidently in the 2nd half. The ball was in the opposition D for long periods of time but Reading's GK made a number of good saves in quick succession to keep the score at 1-0.
Reading had a few counter attacks and were able to convert a further opportunity. However Hawks worked really hard and were really unlucky not to convert any of their chances.
