First league match of the season and everyone was ready to go. We got off to a rough start by Newbury putting themselves 2-0 up after being awarded a flick. Kayleigh was unlucky to stop it. But soon after Hawks got a short corner and after 2 great shots by Meg M and Victoria, Fi ended up being the one to slot it in the back of the goal with a cheeky lift over the goalkeeper putting us 2-1. Meg M was the next to score slotting a cross to the P spot into the goal. At half time we were 2-2 and the wise words from Tom meant we went back out fighting for the win.
We went back on ready to go for the win and with some lovely passing we got another short corner and with a one touch shot from Potter we were 3-2 up. They then scored quickly after making it 3-3. After a small time, Meg M was once again scoring and putting us 4-3 up. As the last 10 minutes started to arrive both teams were still fighting for the win. Newbury managed to slot another one in as the last 5 minutes came around. Pushing for the win we managed to get one last team goal with Claire crossing it from the backline to the P spot and Potter popping it into the goal to make it 5-4.
