A game of 2 halves for the Ladies 2s!

Ladies' 2s 6 - 0 Henley Ladies 1s
After a disappointing draw last week, the Ladies 2s were in need of a strong performance to continue their momentum going into the final few games of the season.
With invisibility cloaks aside, foreheads ready to burn and Wilko's pre-match mindfulness talk, Hawks welcomed Henley for the game.
A steady start found Hawks a little loose in possession meaning Pagey was called into action with her legendary goalkeeping. The game continued to be a little disjointed, but 5 minutes from halftime a goal from the tightest of angles saw Harri H get onto the scoresheet and help Hawks go into the break 1-0 up.
A different Hawks came out in the second half, and a quick counter attack and jointly worked goal from Vikki, finished off by Lili gave a deserved 2-0 lead. Hawks stumped up another 3 goal’s through several short corners, from a Caro shot, Helen deflection and Kathryn rebound. One way traffic continued (a34 aside) with Sandra’s class down the left setting up a ‘Tuesday training goal’ from Odders to finish off the day.
One could go out on a limb and say it was one of the best second halves this season for the 2s. Either way Rosie was MoM (with excellent baking), Lily DoD (forgetting socks) and in the words of Wilko….the job is not done..
Many thanks to Clive Jones for the excellent photos.
