Ladies 1s vs Havant 1s – 8.10.16 Match Report

OHC L1s 1-2 Havant L1s: South League Div 2

Oxford made the trip south to Havant, and only Charley was delayed due to horse issues…

Oxford started the game brightly, a driving run from Beth Williamson creating a chance that Christy Barnard pounced on to put Oxford 1 up. Charley Ebbutt and Emily Malden came close to adding a second but Havant were next to strike, intercepting a loose ball in the 25 to touch home on the far post to level the score at half time.

Oxford came out in the second half keen to push on, with MOM Jess Upjohn making inroads down the right wing, winning a corner that Havant’s keeper did well to save from a strong Williamson strike. However, Havant then went 2-1 up from their own PC and Oxford threw everything at the game to come back, Ellie Yuill going close to no avail and the game ended 2-1.

MOM: Jess Upjohn
Scorer: Christy Barnard
