In their second game they faced Cheltenham, in the same league as Hawks, and started well again. However it was the home side who took the lead with a well taken strike past Millie Lane in the Hawks goal. Hawks reacted well and played some outstanding passing hockey, but it wasn’t until the third quarter where they really stepped it up, scoring three times in 15 minutes. The first was a well worked short corner move finished off by Sam Jacobs. The second followed a couple of minutes later, where Gemma Croker, on her debut for the Ladies 1s finished well from Emily Smith’s cross. The third was a composed finish from Smith, after great work from Becky Hibbert, on her return to the side after two months off with concussion. Cheltenham pulled a goal back in the final quarter but Hawks held on for a good win from a good performance as they build towards the league restart in the first week of February.
