Ladies' 2s 2 - 2 Woking Ladies' 1s

On a blustery Saturday afternoon Oxford Hawks ladies 2s took on Woking in the league. Hawks, buoyed by last Saturdays win, were keen to capitalise and build momentum. 

The majority of the first half was fairly in uneventful, with both teams nullifying each other through the mid field. Hawks won the only short-corner of the half, which was defended with some positive number one running. Just as the game was about to slide quietly into the break, Hawks set their press and with some excellent closing down by the forwards forced a turnover on the 23. Siena won the ball and slipped it to Alice, whose shot was saved by the keeper, but only as far as Sienna who slotted the ball home. 

Woking came out strongly after half time, their direct style of play resulting in a short-corner that was converted for the equaliser.

The middle of the second-half resulted in some scrappy play by both teams, with neither team gaining firm control. Hawks continued to strive to implement their game plan.

Player of the match, Vicky Martin, shone with some instrumental defending and stepped up to help support the attack with some great positioning to enable the high pitch transfer. Hawks increased their circle entry count and with a decisive drive by Kathryn Poulter won a short corner. Rachel Minihan's shot was saved by the Woking keeper, only as far as Alice Potter who scored from close range. Hawks aimed to continue their momentum, but towards the end of the game were undone by a long ball through the middle of the park. The pass falling nicely for Woking forwards who were able to force a 2v1 on the keeper. 

The match eventually fizzled out, final score 2-2.
