Today saw the Ladies’ 7s play their best game so far this season. They were challenged by Wootton and had to up their game play in order to come out on top. The teamwork, passing, defending and attacking was on point by the whole team today and no one had more attack than Kelly Fogden. She was all over the field and stole the ball from the Wanderers at every opportunity. Despite not scoring any goals today she had a blinder of a match.
Newcomers Zoe and Lexie played exceptionally well and seemed at ease with the 7’s and their style of play.
The goals were slow to come at the beginning of today’s match but in the 29th minute Kelly struck a great ball to find Poppy in a perfect position for Poppy to score the first goal of the match. Wootton equalised just before the half time whistle. In the second half it was busy around Wootton’s goal and on the 16th minute Poppy scored another goal by Jess crossing a lovely hit to the P spot where Poppy was waiting for the ball to put Hawks in the lead. Another goal scored by Wootton to equalise and then Charlotte had two amazing goals in the 22nd and 25th minute to take the score to 4-2 for Hawks. It was exciting in the final few minutes of the second half but Hawks were unable to convert to any more goals, so the final score was 4-2.
There were nominations for Poppy, Kelly, Lydia, and Zoe for player of the match but player of the match went to joint winners Katie and Lexie.
Well done everyone, a great game by all!
