A local derby this week as we took on Oxford 1s at home; after some tunes from Scraggle and some motivation from Wilko we were ready to go.
Oxford had a strong start getting a shot on goal within the first few minutes but our defence was strong and held off the pressure. Oxford scored first with a straight strike to the right post on a short corner; this was followed by some end to end hockey with attacks from both teams and Hawks preventing some more chances from Oxford. Oxford then scored again leaving the score 2-0 at half time.
We came out fighting after half time and took the game to Oxford. Hawks then scored with a well worked goal, finished by Harriet H making it 2-1. We fought hard for the second goal but unfortunately the game ended 2-1. Hawks had some strong attacks and won some short corners were unable to convert them. Nonetheless a very strong Hawks performance with lots of positives to take into the rest of the season and thank you to all the supporters!
