OHC L3s 2-5 Amersham & Chalfont 1s
A new season for the new look Oxford Ladies 3 who stepped out in glorious sunshine to play Amersham and Chalfont in the Premier Trysports league at Brookes on Saturday. Having been recently promoted the Oxford team started with all guns blazing and dominated the play for the first 15 minutes. Attacking from midfield, Man of the match Kat, ensured the forwards were fed the ball quickly. However, against the run of play, A&C capitalised on a break through ball and scored to put the opposition ahead. The game was evenly matched from then on with Oxford equalising from a great team goal, exploiting the right and Annie persisting in front of goal to slot the ball in the corner. Just before halftime A&C scored again but there was all to play for after the break.
Under pressure the Oxford defence conceded another well-taken goal, but Katie Smith scored from a short corner (rumour has it that it was touched over the line by Sarah!) to make it a close battle for the last 10mins of the game. Everyone rallied hard but the final score line of 2-5 unfortunately didn’t reflect the effort and the standard of the majority of the game. Oxford can take many positives from their first game in a new league and look forward to a productive season ahead.
