The Ladies 2s travelled to Southgate for the final game of the season knowing that promotion had been secured the week before but as Henley were only 1 point ahead in the league table, there was plenty still to play for!
Southgate were the first team to take their chance and went 1-0 up within 10 minutes however this gave Hawks a good kick and they responded immediately through Abbie Brant.
However it was Southgate who took the lead again going 2-1 up, Hawks again responded accordingly and evened the score at 2-2 with the Ladies 2s top goal scorer, Tiny wee Claire popping up. Hawks then took matters into their own hands through Tiny wee Claire again and were 3-2 up going into half time.
The 2nd half wasn't as straight forward as Hawks struggled to keep possession. With the game coming to a close and Hawks leading 3-2, it looked as though the team were going back to Oxford with all 3 points. However there was a wee bit of controversy in the dying seconds of the game, Southgate scored their third goal and evened the score at 3-3 even though it appeared that the 70 minutes were up. Hawks were not entirely in agreement but the score remained at 3-3.
A slightly disappointing way to end the final game of the season but the Ladies 2s are really excited about their promotion and the fact they will be playing South Div2 hockey next season!
Massive well done to the entire team for their tres bien hockey and commitment throughout the season. Finally 1000 thank you's to Dizzy, Tom Harris, Andy Clark, Nathan Monk and Kit Cutter for all their help and wisdom throughout the season.
