After a team talk from Phil and half-time sweets, we began the second half. Sonning were relentless in their attack and eventually got their big break, scoring two goals within eight minutes. Unfortunately we were unable to take back the lead, and the game ended 2-1 to Sonning. Goalie Purdy made some excellent saves, particularly on two occasions where she was one-on-one with a Sonning player. There was also excellent play from other Hawks players, particularly Romilly who made some great runs and was runner-up POM to Molly.
Hopefully we can improve on this performance next week when we play against top-of-the-league team Thame at home!
Thanks to Phil and Jan for organising, Purdy for the yummy POM flapjacks, and Molly’s mum for managing the subs!
