Not a great start for the Ladies 3’s as Oxford Uni managed to score a goal despite some great pressure and defending by Hawks. A few minutes later we brought it back to 1-1 by a lovely goal by Megan Minton with a reverse stick shot after a rebound off the keeper, and finished 1-1 at half time.
The second half started off strong with a goal by Zoe Lamb putting us 2-1 up. We maintained a strong attack, putting their defence under constant pressure but just couldn’t convert this into another goal.
Whilst we kept fighting to maintain our lead, Oxford Uni remained strong and kept up the pressure and managed to score another goal putting us at a draw.
Some other highlights of the match included:
Fantastic strong defending from MOM Annabel.
Shot by Jossy unfortunately too high at a short corner
Great dribbling by Frankie
Amazing stop in the air by Lucy
Dribble down the left by Fran
Overall some great pressure and work rate but unfortunately for the second match in a row, the ladies 3’s have finished with a 2-2 draw, but again have gained another point.
Thanks to Claire and Connor for managing & coaching.
