Henley Hawks 3 Beat Vixens in Rematch

Hawks 3 faced Vixens this week, last time these teams met Hawks took the win by 1 goal, so they had a point to prove this week.
Hawks went out quickly and the ball passed nicely from Marieke Fox (C) to Amber Tate (WA) who played it with precision to Millie Roberts (GA) and Claire Priddy (GS) who scored a nice stream of goals in Q1.
In Q2 the defensive pressure was added by both teams, Emma Garrett (GD) and Juliet Machan (GK) really kept on their players and picker up rebounds and interceptions. Likewise the Vixens GK and GD interfered with Hawks shooters resulting in both teams only scoring 3 goals going into half time! The tension between the 2 teams continued into the second half, Jo Southwell (WD) did an excellent job of keeping her WA out of the game and was there to pick up loose balls and send them back to the Hawks attacking end, the final score in Q3 was 17-12 to Hawks.
The mid court of Tate, Fox and Southwell worked really hard to move the ball and provide much needed support as they played into the final quarter. Priddy and Roberts kept moving to create space and opportunities, as the gap grew smaller capitalising on these opportunities were vital, and they did just that, the final score 23-19 to Henley Hawks 3.
