After delivering a strong performance and taking the first points from top of the table Olton last week, Hawks were hoping to keep us this positive form in their third home game of the season, this time against Swansea. The game started with both teams having multiple chances but neither managing to break the dead-lock. In goal, player of the match Jess Hughes made multiple diving saves from a string of short corners to stop Swansea from taking the lead. Unfortunately, just before half time, Swansea were able to go 1-0 up through a well worked short corner routine. The defence worked tirelessly with Row Hearn and Caro Harris making multiple interceptions to ensure only a 1-goal deficit going into half-time.

In the second half, Hawks battled hard but were unable to break through the Swansea backline and generate many chances, the best coming from Becky Odlin’s deflection from a cross from the left side-line. Hawks continued to defend well but Swansea were able to extend their lead, once again from a well-practiced short-corner. Hawks pressed hard in the final 5 minutes, hoping to get a goal for their efforts but couldn’t get the ball into the back of the goal before the final whistle blew. A frustrating game but lost of positives and learning points to take away as Hawks go on to play top of the table Stourport next week.
