Ladies' 1s in close game with Cheltenham

08 February 2020, 12:30, Balcarras SC

Ladies' 1s 1 - 2 Cheltenham Ladies1s

Oxford Hawks travelled over to Cheltenham looking to bounce back after the previous week's disappointing loss, however it turned out to be a frustrating day for the Ladies 1s as they didn't perform to the high standards they know they can. Credit to Cheltenham for a good press, putting Hawks under pressure right from the beginning, and in fact they took the lead quite early on as they broke through and their centre forward finished well. Hawks almost levelled through an outstanding reverse stick effort from Gemma Croker, but her shot was brilliantly saved on the line by a recovering defender. Cheltenham did create some more chances but some good defending, in particular from player of the match Sally Clark, kept them out.  

In the third quarter Hawks levelled, when Sam Jacobs smashed in a penalty corner rebound on her reverse, but the parity didn't last long as Cheltenham restored their lead moments later with a quick break down the left. The ball was crossed in and bundled over the line to make the score 2-1 to the home side. With all to play for in the final quarter Hawks pushed forwards but were not able to test the home keeper and left empty-handed. They now will build for their tie away at table toppers Surbiton this weekend, keen to replicate their victory in the home tie before Christmas.
