Ladies' 6s 4 - 2 Phoenix & Ranelagh Ladies 3s
After a good warm up in fresh and chilly conditions the Ladies 6’s started well but unfortunately soon found themselves facing a short corner. No problem though for our strong defence, Phil, Jan, Holly and Harriet and 6 minutes later after a series of short passes Molly scored her first goal and continued to make fast runs up the pitch into our attacking end. After an impressive dummy (miss) by Bella in the D Molly was there again to tidy up and pop the ball in to get her second goal, nice work. Sara made her debut and was a tireless worker midfield linking up with Kayleigh to push the ball up to the inners. Evelyn with the sun in her eyes made some dramatic saves to keep any goals away. Just before the half time whistle went, a high ball in the D from Molly was brought down by Bella and passed to Linda who was in a perfect position, lying in wait, and in it went. 3-0 to Hawks.
After the half time chat from Phil we put pressure on but an unfortunate decision which we could not do anything about left an unmarked player free to score, 3-1. Their heads went up and before we knew it we were still just ahead 3-2 but needed to dig in and remember Tam’s top tips from training. With plenty of on and off pitch encouragement we started using the sides more and making some effective transfers from the back. To secure the win further a lovely goal was scored in the last 5 minutes by a short corner routine of Rom passing the ball back to Kayleigh the injector who slotted the ball past the keeper. Final score 4-2, and thanks must go to Buffy for excellent management 👍 and Becky Hibbert for freezing at the side to give advice and cheer us on.
Thanks also to our Hawks umpires and to Harriet for her very festive chocolate bakes!
