Despite the wind and the cold, we had a strong start with a roll out and a push into the goal by Lotty just 2 minutes into the game after a lovely pass from Becky, our player of the match who made several great runs down the pitch throughout the game. However, the remainder of the first half was quite frustrating with a lack of any further goals despite some great play.
We were determined to come back strong after half time, unfortunately, despite our strong defence, Bicester broke through and scored a goal. This only increased the team‘s determination to get more goals, and soon after were rewarded with a short corner goal from Buffy, set up by Lotty. Soon after from another short corner Becky scored our third goal from a rebound. Then with some great defending from Phil, and great attacking from Bella we for got the ball back into Bicester’s D to Linda who scored with a glancing touch into the goal. After some more great play from Rosie, Rom and Lizzie, our final goal was scored near the very end of the match, another one for Buffy with a repeat of her first goal with the ball going from her to her sister then back to her for a sweep into goal. Final whistle went with all 3 points taken by Hawks with the 5-1 score line.
