On Saturday 7th of December, after having a game cancelled the previous week, the 4s were raring to go. It was nice to have some dry weather and no rain and this was a must win match between two teams at the bottom of the table.
It started out well with a goal in the first 10 minutes resulting from a good pass from Lucy around the goalie with Tara pushing it into the corner of the goal. After continuing pressure throughout the pitch, we got many more short corners - enough to meet even Becky’s quota! - but we were not able to convert any of them. After a good team talk and refuelling on the necessary Haribos we returned to the pitch believing this match was ours to win.
In the 2nd half South Berks came back fighting with a change of formation but Hawks got the next score with a goal by Rebecca. It was then followed with a goal from Tara who managed to roll the ball over the line between the goalkeeper and the post. Although South Berks continued to make chances Kayleigh managed to make some crucial saves and we finished with a textbook short corner for the final play of the match with a goal from a good strike by Rebecca.
An overall great performance from the whole team earning us our second win of the season. A well deserved Player of the Match was awarded to Tara.
