Hawks Hampshire Cup Final

Posted by Mark Hickson on 10 March 2019

Having beaten Andover 5-2 in the semi-final, the Hawks were raring to go against tough opposition in the form of Portsmouth in the Community.

The match was played at Front Lawn in incredibly windy conditions, which sadly impacted the game, but this didn't dampen the girl's spirits as they were excited to get the game started.

The game began with a flurry of goals, as by the 18th-minute mark the score was 2-1 to Portsmouth, with Mae getting on the score sheet for Flyers. The foundation of Flyers success was their midfield strategy of packing the space and covering the wings well to minimize the Portsmouth attacks and with the score staying at 2-1 until half time, Flyers were very much still in the game.

The second half was a more difficult affair for the Flyers team, as they were against the wind. This meant both clearances and passes forward were much harder, but the girls fought all the way through the half brilliantly. In an attempt to get the equaliser Flyers pushed forwards but sadly Portsmouth got stronger as the game progressed and pulled away to a 4-1 lead and held out to keep that as the final score. 

Despite the loss, this was a massive achievement for the girls to reach the final and shows the progression they have made as a team. Coach Luke had this to say after the game 'Not the result we all hoped for but an amazing team experience today. The atmosphere in the changing rooms was excellent, the best I have experienced as a coach, the girls were buzzing and there was lots of fun, laughter, and togetherness which was great to see. We will continue to play out our league fixtures and then we will build the squad for next season as we move to 11aside football and hopefully we can go one step further.'

Well done to the Hawks!
