Our second game of the season saw us playing at home with the sun shining. Oxford had the pushback but Hawks were ready and quickly took possession. After winning a number of short corners , Angie scored a great goal putting Hawks into the lead. Oxford then scored a goal and the first half was over.
During half time, the team talked over what was working and what we could do to turn our possession of the ball into a goal.
The second half of the game started strongly, and Hawks quickly broke the tie with Cat scoring a goal. We once again got a short corner followed by more. The final goal was scored by Millie who popped it off her stick into the goal. Nominations for man of the match included Libby, Heui, Cat, Liv and Niv GK but the winners were Shan and Sofia two of our newer members who played their first match with the team brilliantly, getting involved and intercepting some hard balls. Overall the team played extremely well together and we are looking forward to the rest of the season.
Many thanks to Sophie Lawman for managing the substitutions and taking the team photograph. Huge thanks to Yasmin Elgen for finding us these new young skillful players.
