Hawks played a strong game through all quarters, with Olivia Godfrey producing her best performance of the season to make sure the ball moved well down the court. With a strong defensive performance from Julia Belteki and Charlotte Gramlick the Hawks gave very little away, and with Tori Green and Olivia Alltree supplying the finishing touches the team came out comfortable winners.
