We started strong and Sherene had an early chance, after a cracking ball from Vicky on the right, which escaped her! A period of Hawks dominance followed and we got our goal! Sherene took an excellent touch off of a rebound from the goalkeeper to knock it through her legs!
Banbury equalized from a short corner. Doh!
We pressed hard and an excellent through ball from Vicky, to Sherene who found PIP who acrobatically swept the ball into the goal!
Half time… Hawks lead 1-2.
The second half consisted of more Hawks dominance but sadly with no goals and then Banbury were awarded a flick which Purdy couldn’t quite get too.
This gave Bunbury some confidence and they pushed us hard and were rewarded with a late goal at the far post just 3 minutes from time.
We walked out defeated and deflated after a close loss but remain in second place thanks to a loss for close rivals P and R. Promotion is still in our hands!
Pip earned man of the match for her hard work tireless energy and amazing goal!
