Ladies' 1s 2 - 1 University of Bristol Ladies 1s

The Ladies' 1s had their second trip in as many weeks to Bristol to face a young Bristol Uni side. The team talk was simple: to have fun, not over-complicate things and get back to the hockey we all love playing.

Hawks started the brighter of the two teams with everyone linking well and having a majority of the possession but despite this and a number of short corners Hawks were unable to convert any chances. As the first quarter went on the Uni team started to find their rhythm after some prolonged pressure they scored. 1-0. Hawks didn’t panic though and continued to play some lovely hockey. Despite a last minute short corner to the Uni side, some stellar defending by Hawks, they saw out the first quarter to keep the score at 1-0.

The second quarter was just like the first with Hawks having a majority of the play and chances. An attack down the left by Jemima and Minners left for the ball for Tegan to play the ball into the D, the ball was picked up by Lexi who had a quick shot on goal and the score was now 1-1.

Both teams started the second half with the intent on winning the game with both sides having chances. This showed as there was a number of cards shown but unfortunately for Hawks they couldn’t take advantage. The scored remained level.

When the final quarter started it was all to play for. Hawks dominated most of the possession with the midfielders and forwards keeping the Uni defence under pressure. Tiny managed to win the ball off one of the full backs and drove into the D where she was taken down from behind and won her side a penalty flick which Bex calmly dispatched. 2-1 to Hawks. With not long left Hawks needed to stay focused and see the game out but with less than a minute remaining hawks conceded a short corner.

Never in doubt, Hawks managed to clear the short corner and see out the remaining seconds.

Overall a fantastic team performance, with each line playing their part in the win. Next week to Bath Uni.
