Ladies' 2s 7 - 1 Reading Ladies 3s

Hawks made the journey to Reading and warmed up in the sunshine before torrential rain made a feature for the majority of the match.

Hawks started strongly with some early chances that were well saved by the Reading keeper, finally breaking deadlock halfway through the first half with a ball played into the D, which was deflected initially by Abbie Brant and then finally into the goal by Em Wilkins.

This gave Hawks confidence to continue to attack the Reading half and were not rewarded until just before half time when a well worked move from defence to forward released Prada Herron to slot the ball past the Reading keeper to make it 2-0. Hawks fullbacks April Bedford and Laura Scragg continued to intercept a lot of the attack from Reading, leaving Reading with minimal opportunities in their attacking half.

A half time team talk from captain Kara Kerr and Kit Cutter refocused Hawks and they went into the second half keen to put some more goals on the score sheet. A strong run through midfield from Jo Palethorpe lead to another attacking opportunity and later on in the attack Jo was able to cross the ball to Kathryn Poulter on the far post to make it 3-0. Rosie Abbott attacked strongly down the left first crossing the ball to Claire Werlinger to deflect into the goal and secondly to skillfully take on the keeper and slot the ball into the goal from a tight angle.

Hawks were able to continue to pile on the pressure with several attacking chances through Abbie Brant, finally getting onto the score sheet with a beautiful reverse stick shot from the top of the D. Hawks were able to take advantage of tiring Reading legs and made the score 7-0 through a reverse shot from close range from Lex Thomas.

Reading looked dangerous on the break at times during the match and were awarded a penalty stroke after a threatening attack on the break in the 68th minute. This was calmly taken by Reading to make the final score 7-1.
