Under 12s face sudden death at Rover Tournament

Under 12 girls 06APR113

This is the Under12s girls’ A team at the Rover Tournament. They came second in there group only to draw in the third place play off. It was time for their stand in Under 10 goalkeeper Alice Madden-Waite to face 3 penalty flicks which she successfully defended. Next it was sudden death penalties and sadly Eastcote got one past her and Hawks didn't manage to score, but the team were very happy with a fourth place trophy.

Uner 12 Girls' B teamThe Under 12s Girls' B team had a much tougher group and were not placed. 

Oxford Hawks Boys U 12’s took 3 teams to the Rover Festival. Dominic Monroe and Ollie Dunn are to be thanked for stepping up and donning the goal keepers kit for the sake of their teams.

Hawks B and C teams faced tough challenges and acquitted themselves well. Hawks B found themselves in a group of only 3 teams which included Cheltenham and Oxford 1. Playing both sides twice was a test but lessons can be learned for many of the Boys who will stay in the U12’s next year. Hawks C were well marshalled by Dom Maclachan and Jack Tyler-Chamberlain performed well urging his team on but again the opposition proved tough.

Hawks A were in a group including Teddington, Reading and Wallingford. Despite starting very slowly in the 1st  game against Reading they won all 3 games with excellent team work and movement. In the final game against Teddington Krishan Badiani took a ball in the face after a brave challenge and was forced to retire from the Tournament. Our best wishes go to him.

After winning the quarter final against Eastcote with a well taken goal by Ed Wilkinson, Hawks A faced Cheltenham, the favourites, in the semi final and despite a fantastic performance, ending losing 1-0. The team dominated the 3rd/4th play off as clear winners with 4 goals from Jake Taylor, Ed Wilkinson, Toby Maclachan and Dominic Monroe. A great way to finish, and the team looks forward to the South finals at the end of April.

Under 8s April 2013Hawks under 8s thoroughly enjoyed taking part in the Rover Festival on Sunday.  They comfortably won their four group games against Oxford 2s, Eastcote, Aylesbury and Wallingford 2s scoring many goals and conceding only one.  In the final they lost 1 - 0 to Oxford in a fantastic game by both teams.  The Hawks team played with huge effort and enthusiasm through all the games and thoroughly deserved their goals and impressive defensive record.  Well done to all involved:  Luke Prior, Jennifer Munford, Freddie Robertson, Lucy Hanslip, Sam Copping, Aislin Rees, Arthur Baldock, Joshan Finlayson.
