Coming off the back of a tight 1-1 draw against the top side the day before, the Ladies 4’s were keen to secure their place in the league and avoid relegation with a must win against South Berkshire. 


The game got off to a slow start with South Berks coming out hard. The Hawks held them off with some transfers round the back and passing through the congested defence. As the half went on we warmed to the game and shook out the soreness from Saturday’s efforts. With some excellent attacks going forward generated by great leading into space, Katie got a hit away into goal! The umpires paused to consider if she was in fact in the circle when she took the shot, and Katie confidently celebrated - the team followed suit, resetting before it was sadly called a no goal. No matter, Hawks by this time were in control and set up another opportunity, with Lydia converting the first goal. 


Player of the season Sue was out with a sore quad from Saturday so was able to provide some keenly observed pointers at half time. 


The second half saw some great linking through the centre with Hawks having a few short corner opportunities but to no avail. Seizing the opportunity of a saved shot, Alex had a second attempt and got the second goal with the help of a defender on the goal line who couldn’t react in time. 

With a comfortable 2-0 lead, Hawks were showing some back to back game fatigue but finished the game strong and with a clean sheet. A spot in the league secured for next season, there was much post game relief and excitement over a well deserved roast lunch to cap off a great weekend of hockey.
