Hawks Ladies 4s finish last league game in style 9-0

Ladies' 4s 9 - 0 Henley Ladies 3s

Without 4s captain Linda, who had cycled off to France for the weekend, the 4s met for the home tie against Henley 3s at BRN for their last league game of the 2012-13 season. Having been given a target of 3 short corners and 2 goals in the first half, Hawks were ready to put pressure on Henley from the first whistle. The spectators were not to be disappointed as within the first 15mins Hawks had already achieved their 2 goal target, both thanks to Rebecca Cannon, and had created several other chances following some lovely interplay down the right hand side by Elisha, Megan, Storm and Rachel. Not to be outdone when Sandra subbed herself into the forward line she too quickly got onto the score sheet. Meanwhile, Henley struggled to get the ball into their attacking half and on the few occasions when they did were quickly held in check by the solid defence of Emma F, Emma C, Catherine and Phil such that GK Alex had little to do but watch. Then just before the first half whistle went, from a mathematically impossible angle, Rebecca was rewarded with her hat-trick goal – all that ‘widening the goal’ at training finally paying off. Half-time score 4-0 to Hawks.

Following the break, and with the new target of 4 more goals in the second half, Hawks continued to mount pressure across the pitch. On the left Aoife and Emma F connected well together and created the opportunity for Elisha to get the 5th goal. Henley continued to battle hard but again found difficulty in making good any attacks. The Hawks goals kept coming at a steady pace throughout the 2nd half with 1 goal each from Storm and Rachel and 2 more from Rebecca (giving her 5 in total for the match) and still no touch for Alex. At the end of the match the final score of 9-0 reflected a fantastic team effort with a very well deserved man of the match awarded to Rebecca Cannon!
