Ladies' 1s beat Old Loughtonians in torrential rain

17 March 2013

Ladies' 1s 3 - 2 Old Loughtonians Ladies 1s

Oxford Hawks returned to winning ways in the torrential rain at Old Loughtonians. Playing on the Olympic blue turf, they started well, dominating the early stages. After fifteen minutes Abi Flory did a trademark drive down the right, pulling the ball back to Lucy Stewart who finished well. Hawks continued to dominate, but Becky Odlin was denied by a fantastic double save from former GB keeper Becky Duggan. Moments from the end of the first half, the home side equalised in controversial fashion, with the umpire awarding a goal despite no player having touched the ball in the area.

The second half did not start as planned, with Old Loughts taking the lead with a strike from the top of the area. However Hawks kept their heads and continued to dominate the play, and got their reward after 15 minutes  with Lucy Stewart pouncing on a loose ball to score brilliantly with her reverse stick. By now Hawks were in top gear and the winning goal followed minutes later with a superb penalty corner goal. The ball was played to back to injector Bex Oakes who crossed for Odlin to tap in.  Hawks held on for a thoroughly deserved three points, and look forward to their last game on Saturday against Horsham.
