L5s miss out on goals in top of the league battle
Published on 06th Nov, 2023
Sunday 5th November saw Hawks Ladies 5 take on top of the league Wootton Wanderers 1 in a rescheduled fixture.
The ladies 5s started well, creating a strong defence and not conceding in the first half. Unluckily, 25 minutes into the second half, Wootton scored their first goal from a short corner. The game ended 2-0 to Wootton.
The 5s' defence was the highlight of the match, saving all but one of the short corners, with many excellent saves from Linda keeping Wootton out for the first half and most of the second. Our attack formed some great passes up the pitch and into the D and were unlucky to not score.
Some great play from Minty in the middle and Holly on the left. Both succeeding to get the ball up the pitch.
Overall a very good fight from the 5s, again unlucky not to score a few.
Holly was voted POM for the second week for her fantastic defending. Lidya, Masha also got a few votes each and others were mentioned to showing what a great team effort it was.
