Ladies’ 3s v. 2s – 28.01.17 match report

Oxford 3s  3-1  Oxford 2s

Given the respective positions of the two teams in Trysports Prem 1, on paper it looked like the 2s were a safe bet to take 3 points this weekend, despite missing 2 or 3 regulars. And, for the first ten minutes or so, we (the 2s) did start strongly, passing the ball around well and dominating play. There were a few efforts on goal, and the first short corner in our favour.

Ladies 3s v. Sonning 1s – 19.11.16 match report

Sonning  3-0  Oxford

We arrived at the pitch slightly anxious to say the least, firstly due to the fact that Sonning 1s were rather high up in the league and secondly because we had had about 4 people drop out in the week, therefore making us unsure as to whether or not we had a full team. However, we were in luck and lovely Ellie G joined us last minute therefore saving the day and allowing us one sub! Continue reading

Ladies 3s v. Marlow 2s – 12.03.16 match report

Oxford 3s went on a goal fest on Saturday v Marlow 2s – and kept the supporters cheering as they won 12 – 1!

Marlow 2s, 4th in the league are no easy team to beat …. but when they came to Oxford Saturday – they were in for a surprise…. We played some awesome hockey during the 70 minutes with great passing and movement off the ball showing the enjoyment, commitment and team spirit that the 3s have enjoyed this season, working hard for each other, moving the ball around well…. a Captain’s dream!

Ladies 3s are League Champions!

Congratulations to the ladies 3rd team who – with one match still to play – have come top of their division, Trysports Premier 2 and are now looking forward to joining our 2nd team in Prem 1 next season!

The 3s secured their title in some style at Brookes last Saturday when they beat Marlow 2s 12-1 (all the more impressive when you consider that Marlow are not struggling at the bottom of the division but currently sit in 4th place!). Witney then beat second-placed Newbury & Thatcham 1s, leaving them four points behind Oxford with only one match to play. Continue reading

Ladies 3s v. Thame 1s – 5.3.16 match report

Thame  1-4  Oxford

Oxford 3s went to Thame for what they knew would be a physical game and weren’t disappointed.  Oxford started well with a great run forward forcing a free hit just outside the 25 which Suzie took quickly finding Sarah F in the D. Sarah drove towards the goal keeper to slot the ball into the goal at a tight angle – super goal within a minute of the start!! Continue reading

Ladies 3s v. Reading 2A – 27.2.16 match report

Oxford  6-1  Reading

With the 3s eyeing another win they welcomed Reading ‘4s’!!  Reading, as expected, were a mixture of youth and youth, ready to run all day – the youthful exuberance showed during the first half with them attacking with pace but Oxford showed their experience, only allowing Reading half chances which they didn’t take advantage of.
