Ladies O35s 10 - 1 Kings Heath Ladies O35s

A trip to Birmingham saw Hawks O35s take on Kings Heath in the EH cup. The fixture was originally due to be played before Christmas but a frozen pitch meant that we were still in the draw in the second half of the season. We didn’t know much about our opposition other than they played on a heavily sanded pitch – not good for the knees! The team consisted of players across many of the ladies teams who linked up well on the pitch. Hawks dominated early possession and managed to hit both posts and the cross bar without making the pressure count. Eventually the pressure told and Sue Clark’s controlled strike found the back of the net quickly followed by an easy tap in by Zoe Lamb. Kings Heath made a number of advances into the Hawks half utilising the slope on the pitch and home advantage. Through a number of missed tackles and miss-traps, Kings Heath found a way through the Hawks defence and slotted past the advancing keeper. Hawks took control of the game again, with Sherene Butler scoring before half-time to give Hawks a two goal cushion.

In the second half, with both the slope and the sun in our favour, Hawks dominated possession once more. With such a heavy pitch and legs getting tired due to the Christmas break, Hawks began moving the ball around the pitch keeping players both wide and high to stretch the game. Hawks bombarded the Kings Heath circle, and the dominance was rewarded. Further goals from Zoe Lamb (2) and Sherene Butler (3), with Rachel Bellamy and Clare Pritchard adding to the score line, Hawks completed the rout with a 10-1 win. A satisfying trip with a next round draw away against City of Peterborough.
