Oxford Hawks recent fine run of results came to an end at Wimbledon with a disappointing performance. Wimbledon, also on a winning streak, started strong and opened the scoring with a crisp finish from the top of the D which rattled the sideboard. Hawks had a good share of possession but could not convert into goals, with the Wimbledon defence keeping them out with tight marking and solid tackles. On the stroke of half time, Hawks won a corner which was perfectly executed, with Kirsty Chapman playing the ball in for Lucy Stewart to deflect over the prostrate goalkeeper.
In the second half Wimbledon sat back and allowed Hawks to play the ball around, but the away side could not break through the well organised home formation. Their game plan paid off, as ten minutes from the end they caught Hawks on the break to finish well, making the score 2-1. Hawks continued to press, with captain Bex Oakes and Stewart on fine form in midfield, but they were not able to convert, and the clock ran down to give the home side all three points.
