After a stuttering start Hawks U16 Boys hit Top Gear with 11 to 1

29 October 2017, 15:00, Banbury Road North (Near)

U16 Boys 11 - 1 Oxford U16 Boys

A local derby is always eagerly anticipated and this Mercian league match between the two U16 protagonists was no exception.

As the bright autumn afternoon began to chill quickly the early exchanges saw Hawks press for an advantage but some excellent goal-keeping and solid defence could easily have frustrated their exertions.

However Freddie Smith helped break the dead-lock and after goals from Laurie Cooke and a sublime pick up by Jonny Sunderland from a defensive error was slammed into the net Hawks began to take control.

The Hawks midfield of James Edmiston, Laurie Cooke, Krishan Bhadiani and Phil Barnett controlled the midfield and Oxford were forced on the back foot. It was not long before the goals began to flow and the forwards of Simon White, Jonny Sunderland and OJ Webb added to the tally. Freddie Smith added 4 to take his total to 5, and in a rare foray into the D, Mark Milner controlled the ball in tight space and neatly clipped the ball home.

The game was played in a good spirit with both sides competing from beginning to end, but Hawks simply had more firepower. A couple of cards were awarded where on another day there may have been a quiet word given to the players concerned but Hawks finished 11-1 winners. This was a case of team work producing the results the hard work of all players deserved and skipper James Edmiston left with a smile on his face.
