Ladies 4s entertained Oxford 3s in their final friendly before league started. Still on Cloud 9 after last week's win, the 4s were brought back to earth by a well drilled oxford side. From the off the 4s were under a lot of pressure and the defence were made to work hard to keep them at bay. Eventually though they broke through and took the lead. There were glimmers of connecting play through the midfield but all too often Oxford would intercept and counter attack. Oxford emerged convincing winners, leaving Hawks with much to think about for the start of the league next weekend.
