This Saturday Hawk’s Ladies 5s played local rivals Oxford Ladies 5s. We started off well, on 12 minutes Susan started an excellent transfer round the back to Eveena, then on to Jane back to Eveena and up the pitch to Georgia who did a lovely pass to Pip at top D who roofed the ball into the top of the goal. Unfortunately a bit of complacency and loose marking led to an Oxford equaliser. At 32 mins lots of pressure led to a penalty corner, Jacs passed to Pip on left post who smashed it into the back of the goal!
We came out strong after half-time, some lovely passes starting at the back with Becky onto Georgia and Alice led to another penalty corner, Jacs slipped the ball left to Sherene who scored! Some excellent passes up the pitch including Lara to Priya and Bea to Mimi onto Polly but unfortunately no outcome. At 63 minutes another Oxford break and despite some great tracking back Oxford managed to cross the ball across the D and score. We manage to further defend an Oxford penalty corner and held on to the win but it was too close for comfort. Well played everyone especially Mimi for man of the match.
