The ladies 2’s travelled up to Stowe for the final preseason game against Buckingham 2’s- and wanted to go into the start of the league next week on a high. Once everyone had arrived (Kim had decided to take the scenic route.. ) Hawks were underway, and soon enough we’d bagged our first goal - a short corner won by Rosie and struck straight into the bottom corner from the top by Caro - a confident start from hawks. Another corner followed quickly after, with a controlled deflection from Kim securing the 2nd goal. Everyone kept up the intensity throughout the pitch which earned us our third goal from Rosie, who gently pushed the ball into the bottom corner through congestion in the D.
Spirits where high going into the second half, but we all had to keep focused. The defence withstood several short corner attacks, and managed to outlet the ball to Annabel and Lili - together they got the ball to Sandra who cracked it bottom corner to take us up to 4! For the 5th goal, Harri Stovin hit the baseline and gave a great cross to Annabel, who slotted the ball in back post. Annabel went for the double soon after, and went floor to score! We all took care with our connections as we began to tire slightly as the end drew nearer, but after a back to front pass and lead, Kathryn scored under the keeper, taking the score to 7-0! In the last five we were under pressure, and unluckily the opposition scored off a short just before the final whistle blew, making the final score 7-1, but there was no doubt that everyone played their socks off throughout the entire game!
MOM - Annabel
DOD - Helen - for sitting down on top of the keeper!
