We knew we were in for a tough game against the Abingdon Pilgrims this week but Kat fired us up from the start, reminding everyone we had only lost by one goal in our last match against them. Abingdon Pilgrims were very strong in attack and we soon found ourselves 1 goal down. However, Hawks fighting spirit prevailed and Alice scored a fantastic equaliser just before half time.
The second half was closely fought, with several goal scoring opportunities narrowly missed by both teams. Some great saves from Millie under pressure and a brilliant sweep off our goal line by Wendy kept the Pilgrims at bay.
Pam worked relentlessly in mid field to gain equal votes for “Man of the match” with Alice, but Deborah’s casting vote justly tipped the balance in Alice’s favour for her cracking goal to level the score.
A very good result and well played everyone, with special thanks to India for bravely playing, despite a painful foot injury from last week’s match.
