A fabulous start to the season for the girls U14 team who had a great 6-2 win over Wallingford. The team welcomed some new players who have moved up an age group, but they performed with cohesion and developing confidence. The first quarter saw a great opening goal from Anna followed by a confident finish by Zoe and a calm and collected goal number 3 from Evie. With some great play across the pitch and some lovely player to player passing, goal number 4 arrived courtesy of Emily. A hardworking display from midfielders Holly, Jess , Sarah, Zoe, Heidi and Chloe and calm distribution from Lucia and Amelia contributed to the girls finding their confidence. All the forwards seemed hungry to get on the score sheet which was helped by Rosalind, Emily, Evie, and Olivia's movement off the ball in closing down Wallingford's defence resulted in a brilliant finishes by Evie and equally as good from Izzy. Teddy in goal didn't really have too much to do until Wallingford threw players forwards to claw 2 goals back, but this was never a threat to the Hawks team who seemed to gel and enjoy their first match of the season. An added bonus was that the rain held off!
