Oxford 6-0 Windsor
There was a match and it was abundant in entertainment and satisfaction. There were glorious goals, terrific tumbles, debatable decisions, cautioning cards and at the final whistle… splendid smiles!!
The mighty Oxford Ladies’ 3s recorded an impressive victory over Windsor 1s at Brookes Astro on Saturday. Despite a slight colour clash (not helped by the glare of the sun) a 15 woman strong home team managed a total of 6 goals with no response from the opposition. Oxford’s calm but confident and measured approached secured them 3 goals in each half with the first goal scored within just 5 min of the start. Goals were scored from various heights, speeds and angles; a classic hard flat belter from Laura, back of the net cover drive from Pip, sneaky touch behind the keeper from Jen, short corner magic from Suzie, top right deflection from Pip off a cross from Donna and a lucky fumble in defence for Pip to jab the ball across the line!!
It was a magical team performance, a deserved win and I can neither confirm nor deny that celebrations continued long after the close of play!!
