Hawks put 6 past Henley in chilly conditions!

27 November 2021, 10:15, Henley HC

Ladies' 2s 6 - 1 Henley Ladies 1s

Hawks Ladies 2s arrived on a very chilly Saturday knowing we had a tough outing against a Henley side who have been known to trouble us in the past. Nevertheless we were excited for the game ahead!

We started well, scoring in the first minute and catching Henley off guard. Hawks pushed ahead throughout the rest of the first half, Emily Smith with the pick of the first half goals with a reverse stick strike from the top of the D. We focused our game on passing the ball quickly between us with our forwards and midfielders continuously leading to create space across the pitch. We went into half time at 4-0 and feeling in control of the game. 

After half time, with the weather beginning to turn and snow/sleet falling, Hawks lost their way a little. A poor team reaction to turnover led to a Henley goal which we were disappointed to conceed. We fought to regain control in the second half and after a sketchy first 10 minutes, we begun to find our rhythm again. Our passing game returned and we caused Henley problems at every attacking opportunity. Henley did find more opportunities in the second half but our defenders worked really well together to stop any threats going foward. 

Hawks scored twice more during the second half, the sixth goal a great deflection at the far post from player of the match Kathryn Poulter. 

Overall a good performance in tricky conditions, closing the game out at 6-1. We look forward to our next fixture against Winchester.
