Ladies' 1s lose to Reading 1-0

09 February 2019, 16:30, Reading HC

Ladies' 1s 0 - 1 Reading Ladies 1s

Oxford Hawks made the short journey south to play Reading, keen to start their second half campaign with a win. From the first whistle Reading pressed the Hawks defence hard and the away side were reliant on a number of early saves from keeper Jess Hughes. Hawks soon settled and played some well constructed hockey and came close from a short corner. However it was Reading who took the lead with a well struck corner which clipped the near post and went across to the other post and then went in. Katie Lowe, on outstanding form throughout, came close to levelling when her deflection from Vicky Martin’s cross went narrowly wide.

In the second half Hawks started well and almost levelled after a dangerous drive round the back from Emily Smith, returning to Hawks after a few seasons away. Lexi Newell, on her Hawks first team debut also looked threatening with a number of good drives down the right. However Reading continued to put together some good attacks and won a string of short corners, but nothing was able to get past an outstanding defence, as well as Hawks Man of the Match Hughes in goal. Hawks look forward to their double header next weekend, at home to Gloucester and then away to Isca on the Sunday.
