So Hawks went out again this week knowing the job is not yet done and inspired by Coach Wilko's live broadcasting of her team talk which was very much appreciated, Manager Claud and a certain 1s coach who fancied another 3 points to his name, we started well! Lots of good passing and pressure which at first Sonning soaked up well. Until captain Helen, recently returning from Finding Nemo (Mine, mine, mine) and after making sure all those within a 5 mile radius knew the ball was very much hers, calmly slotted it home.
A few tense moments towards the end of the first half but nothing that Pagey could not handle, making a triple save on one occasion. Hawks found themselves attacking again and Tegan had a wonderful run into the D at the end of the first half, stick lifted and about to trigger, when sadly the half time whistle went to everyone bar Sonnings disappointment.
The second half saw Hawks increase their lead after being under pressure for a few minutes, a few quick passes out from the back, when Harri passed a wonder ball through to her sister Lil who released it quickly to Man of the Match Sandra, who received it well and took the keeper wide and then reversed it home.
Hawks had a number of corners to increase the lead further but the Sonning keeper was not allowing anything to pass. Next week we play a rearranged fixture and looking forward to having Wilko back at the helm.
