Ladies' 1s v Buckingham - Take 2

Ladies' 1s 1 - 2 Buckingham Ladies 1s

  • Ladies' 1s cup game v Buckingham 001

On the Sunday, the two sides met again in the first round of the National Cup, and on a glorious day in front of another large crowd, they played another fine match of hockey. Buckingham applied the early pressure, and converted as their centre forward drove through the middle to finish well past the advancing Jess Hudson in goal. Hawks settled shortly after, playing some beautiful passing hockey, with player-of-the-match Clare King soaking up any pressure which threatened the Hawks goal. Hawks thought they’d scored midway through the half, but much to the disappointment of the home crowd, the game was brought back due to an earlier offence. Hawks responded very professionally and continued to play good hockey but could not convert and went into the interval one goal down. In the second half, the game was a very even affair. Buckingham won a number of penalty corners, but Hawks drew from their experiences the day before to defend them superbly. Buckingham eventually extended their lead from the penalty spot after the ball was played with the back of the stick by King. From the resulting penalty stroke, Hudson went the right way, but the stroke was well placed. Hawks continued to move the ball around well, with Oakes in midfield continuing her sterling performance from the day before. Hawks eventually scored from a penalty corner of their own, as Kirsty Chapman buried the ball in the goal from the top of the area, however it was too little too late as the final whistle was blown with no time for Hawks to find the equaliser.
