Ladies 3s back to winning ways vs South Berks L1s

16 February 2019, 12:00, Cantley Fields

Ladies' 3s 3 - 1 South Berkshire Ladies 1s

A strong performance once again this week for the L3’s with another 3 points in the bag. After an initial slow start, a superb goal from the L3s in the first 10 minutes stepped up the pace of the game; brilliant work down the right from Gabs, casually cruising past the South Berk’s defence, led to a great cross to Rosie at the top of the D and a quick dink to Helen M who was ready in front of the keeper and put the ball cleanly in the back of the goal. 1-0 to Hawks.

A second goal followed shortly after with another great team effort from Fi and Gabs flying down the right, with a textbook cross across the D with Sam confidently deflecting the ball into the goal. 2-0 to Hawks.

After numerous short corners and plenty of near misses, the ladies were rewarded with one more short corner, which Rosie beautifully hit to the far post and GOAL!

Just before the whistle went, South Berks managed to squeeze in a goal that took everyone by surprise as a reverse hit looped itself into the back of the net. 

A great half time team talk from Tom G warned that South Berks were going to come out strong in the second half. Despite fully agreeing with this, Hawks still seemed a bit surprised that South Berks came out hard in the second half (guys, we literally just talked about this!). The game became frantic and scrappy as South Berks began to force the game in their favour putting Hawks on the back foot. Hawks managed to hold on however, keeping South Berks out of our D with solid defending from the back line, and continually putting pressure in the attacking 25. The final whistle blew leaving it 3-1 and a great 3 points for Hawks. 

A great team effort by all today, in particular, man of the match Frankie who was strong up front, and her skills in the D lead to a number of attacking short corners. DOD went to Alice who had a little stand off with the football goal. 

Special mention to the stand in umpire from South Berks who meant the game could still be played - very much appreciated!
