A visit from PHC Chiswick brought an exciting top of the table clash for the ladies 2's.
Chiswick started strongly, eager to win every ball and putting pressure on Hawks in all areas of the pitch. Their pressure paid off with 2 deserved goals in the first 20 minutes. The 2s began to find their feet a little as the half progressed with man of the match Kasey Butler showing great skill and composure, scoring after 22 minutes.
But it was only after the half time break that they really began to play the hockey which has seen them sitting pretty at the top of the table before this game. The 2s came out with urgency to win every ball in defence and had much more composure in attack. Although they played some impressive hockey and created more chances they failed to find an equaliser, largely due to some good saves from the Chiswick goalkeeper.
The girls will take heart from a spirited and skilful second half team performance which they hope to produce for the full 70 minutes next week.
