Haslemere 1s v Andover 1s:
Haslemere started the game off to a strong start showing Andover no mercy. Within the first few minutes Haslemere were showing Andover that they were there to win with a great first goal from Heidi Wells with a lovely assist from Donna Read. With confidence high from the Haslemere side we kept the pressure strong and soon got possession back and with some lovely link play from the midfield and forwards, Theika Botterill drives into the D and find Heidi in a good position who then scores the second goal. Before we know it more goals were going in from Donna and a lovely reverse strike from Alex Hardy. Andover were quickly getting tired and frustrated and were desperately trying to get a goal back but Haslemere were not quite finished, Hannah Cross soon strikes a fantastic reverse stick goal leaving Haslemere 5-0 at half time.
During the second half Andover stepped up their game a bit and were determined to not let any more goals in. Haslemere were still keeping possession of the ball with some lovely leads and drives from Celia Hall and Kate Hutchings maintaining her solid defence not allowing their players to get passed. Within the last 5 minutes of the game Andover caught us and managed to score a goal. Haslemere kept fighting right until the final whistle and left the game as a 5-1 win. A great performance from all at Haslemere with joint man of the match to Saz Elworthy, Hannah Cross and Celia Hall.

HHC Ladies 1st XI vs Southampton University Match Report - 7-0 win
On Saturday, Haslemere Ladies 1st XI took to playing Southampton University. With a couple of our players not feeling up to scratch the team knew it was going to be a tougher game than the last time we played them.
The first half started slowly. We didn't communicate as well as we had been doing before Christmas which led the beginning of the match to be a lot more difficult. However, we didn't conceive any goals thanks to great defending by Bex Mitchell, Kate Hutchings, Mel Knight, Abbie Walhen and Eleanor Abrahams in goal. After our scrappy start we managed to find our feet again when Heidi Wells secured the first goal. With great use of the target ball down the line, and great balls being fed through by the inners Sarah Elworthy and Hannah Enticknap, we managed to put a second goal in the back of the net, scored by Alex Hardy after Donna Reed selflessly played it into her path. The forwards, Celia Hall, Alex Hardy and Alice Toynton managed to sort the press out, making it very effective in enabling the inners, Sarah Elworthy, Donna Reed, Heidi Wells and Hannah Enticknap, to turn the ball over. Our third goal was scored by Hannah Enticknap leading us to a 3-0 lead at half time.
After a quick team talk from coach Pete Crook, we took to the second half in which our performance was a lot better. Our goals came quicker with Alice Toynton giving us the 4-0 lead. Alex Hardy scored her second and the teams fifth goal in and a second for Heidi Wells gave us a score line of 6-0. Our passes were connecting much better in the second half with a better use of transferring the ball and attacking down the opposite half of the pitch. In total, 10 short corners were won putting them to good practice for the games ahead. Kate Hutchings managed to get a goal as our short corner broke down, securing us our 7-0 win.
The first league match after Christmas and having two weeks off due to bad weather meant we didn't play our best however we still managed to put 7 goals away securing us our 3 points. Well played ladies
