After a long journey to get to the club, we thankfully all made it together in time for the match!
There were quite a few new players to the team this week so we thought it might take a while to gel together on the pitch. However, with the sun shining brightly it didn’t take Hawks long to put the pressure on the opposition and get the first goal in.
We had speed as our advantage. The opponents were a little hesitant at times with the ball, so we made sure to tackle quickly and gain possession when we could. In addition to this, we made the most of our chances when the counter attack was possible. At least one goal was scored from a short corner which was a great confidence boost! The defending line up and keeper did an excellent job at stopping any balls from getting through during the match.
Goals scorers included: Linda, Dette (2) short corner, Mary (short straight strike) & Gemma (pass from Linda).
Overall a super good team performance which puts us in a promising position in the league! Well played ladies.
Possible points to think about for the coming weeks: more short and accurate passes. Taking the time to look up & find who’s available before giving the ball away to the opponents too easily. Switching across the pitch when there are no obvious passing options on one side.
