Despite the threat of temperatures dropping to below zero for a late start the game was able to go ahead and both teams gave their all.
In a hard fought encounter the ball moved quickly around the pitch and although Hawks had the slight upper hand, the Oxford goal keeper and defence were in excellent form.
The first half was a tight affair and 0-0 at half time did not do justice to both teams play and Jonny The Fox in the Hawks goal ensured the defence held firm against a number of swift breaks.
The second half saw Hawks begin to take the upper hand and with Fogden and Smith in midfield releasing John Black, James Edmiston and Smith up front chances began to emerge.
Thomas Edmiston was linking well on the right and within a 10 minute spell the Oxford keeper made good saves from Whitey, Walsh and Smith. In particular the Oxford left back looked assured and held that channel against constant Hawks pressure.
At the other end Jonny The Fox made a great last ditch save on his left post as Hawks were hit on the break and then as the game appeared to be heading for a 0-0, James Edmiston opened the inside left channel and drew the keeper to leave the goal ready for a Bear Smith strike. The team were delighted to see his roll in from six inches secure the win and Thomas Edmsiton pick up Man of the Match.
A box of Heroes was presented by Thomas to the Oxford keeper for his heroic Man of the Match performance.
