Hatch End Hawks 7
 Centaurs 19

Hatch End Hawks fought bravely to the end in their defeat to table topping Centaurs on Sunday.

From the first whistle Hawks challenged every ball, but the visitors showed their class with three fast breaks which were converted into goals.

Further strikes followed from the Centaurs, but goals from Lara Owen, Kirsty Eddison and Katie Bohane kept the Hawks in contention and spurred the hosts into the second half knowing that they weren’t out of it yet.

A series of well-executed set plays, quick movement and grit created four more goals for the Hawks but in the end it wasn’t enough to stop their rivals from comfortably taking the points.
