On a gloomy Saturday morning the 3s headed to face oxford uni away. Always an unknown quantity no matter where previous results put them in the league.
A little quieter than normal hawks started strongly. Keeping the uni out of the D and putting together some great pieces of play to bring opportunities. However nothing quite found the back of the net.
The game continued in a similar vain with some great attacking play, overlaps and switching the ball around but to no avail. Hawks just couldn’t find the back of the net, and 10 minutes from time the worst happened as the uni fired a ball in from outside the D and a lucky deflection saw it in the goal.
Spurred on hawks continued to attack with the uni seeing very few further opportunities but the conversion just didn’t occur. A frustrating 1-0 defeat, providing things to work on. Great work from the whole team, with shooting practice this week at training!!
