Ladies' 1s 0 - 3 Swansea City Ladies 1s

Oxford Hawks Ladies' 1s had an early start for their away fixture at Swansea for their first league game since November. Swansea started stronger, making several early attacks on the Hawks goal and winning a series of short corners. Initially Hawks defended well, with Caro Harris and Lex Thomas dominating at the back, but soon enough Swansea converted from a well worked short corner deflection, to gain a 1-0 lead. Hawks looked a little nervy following this, and found themselves defending deep in their own half for the next portion of the game. It wasn’t long before Swansea doubled their lead, netting another deflection through a crowded D. As the rain set in towards the end of the first half, Hawks stepped up a gear, and spent the close of the half with the majority of possession and beginning to threaten the Swansea goal. Following some great linked up play, Hawks increasingly posed a threat, winning several short corners and seeing a trademark Catherine Reaney deflection well saved by the opposition keeper. 

In the second half, Hawks looked better again, continuing to win short corners and attack the goal, but Swansea’s keeper was on form, saving well from Catherine Reaney and Katie Lowe. Frustratingly, Swansea scored a breakaway goal mid way through the half to extend their lead and secure the 3 points, as despite this bringing a strong response from Hawks, they couldn’t find the net. The game ended 3-0 to Swansea.
