The ladies 4s lined up against 11 outfield players from Wycombe on a chilly Saturday morning. We had one plan while the Wycombe Goalkeeper arrived as the first whistle occurred, let's get an early wee goal. Sadly it seemed that this was Wycombe's plan too and they were very successful scoring by the time it took their GK to get half her kit on.
Hawks massively improved after that initial fright and created a number of chances through Karen Easterbrook, Molly Grinham and Katie Jeans.
The score at half time remained 1-0 to Wycombe but Hawks were confident going out into the 2nd half. The team started really positively and were immediately in the opposition D but unfortunately we weren't able to convert on this occasion.
Hawks continued to push forward but it was Wycombe who scored again. However this spurred Hawks on and after some great work down the right from Rom Middlemiss and down the middle from Catherine Taylor, Hawks were awarded a corner. The first one wasn't to be but Kim Williams decisively scored the second corner that was awarded.
Game on at 2-1 to Wycombe. Player of the match, Katie Jeans continued to work up and down the pitch with endless amounts of energy while going at the Wycombe defensive with speed and a desire for more goals. However it was more Wycombe in the 2nd half and they scored two more goals with the game ending 4-1.
Hawks played lots of lovely hockey and are looking forward to playing Sonning on the 12th February.
Massive thank you to Evelyn for the amazing pictures!
