Ladies' 1s 1 - 6 Olton & West Warwicks Ladies 1s

Oxford Hawks made the journey up the M40 to face mid-table Olton, and started well maintaining possession and creating chances. Emma Stephenson, on her debut for the 1st XI, looked dangerous down the right, causing all sorts of problems for the Olton defence. However it was Olton who opened the scoring with a well plaiced shot from the top of the area right into the corner of Jess Hughes’ goal. Olton shortly doubled their lead with a well worked open play goal, and then added another moments later. To Hawks’ credit they continued to push forwards with Sally Clark and Catherine Reaney on fine form throughout. However it was Olton who struck once more to make the score 4-0 at half time, despite possession being generally equal during the half.  

In the second half Hawks came out with strong intent and pushed forwards, with some lovely passing hockey. However it was Olton who struck next with a drag flick into the top corner from ex-international Sally Walton, and they added another shortly after with a tap in on the far post. Hawks keeper Hughes, despite struggling with a back injury, pulled off an outstanding save moments later. Hawks pulled one back through Reaney to give a ray of hope, and they continued to push forwards but it was too little too late as the final whistle blew.
