It was a shakey start! Oxford came on strongly and Hawks struggled to keep shape. We were very fortunate not to concede a goal in the first half and put up some good defending. Trin was a tower of strength in goal.
Oxford again had a strong second half and quickly scored. However, Hawks became more organised, with some strong plays up the wings leading to a fabulous goal from Pam. Oxford soon fought back to take the lead again as Hawks lost shape and left their goal undefended. Hawks didn’t let this faze them and with only five mins to go, Harriet ensured she was perfectly positioned on the left post to score off a rebound.
All in all a good performance from the L8s, with some more focus on shape, a strong press and early releasing of the ball, there should be a win on the horizon! There were lots of nominations for player of the match: Huei, Gill, Clare and both Charlottes. The winner was Aimee! Well done Ladies!!!
