On a wet Saturday morning we came in with confidence after our 5-2 win from our final friendly match the previous week. We started well, with good connecting passes up the wings, and with many close attempts at goal. We were unlucky not to convert one of the many early attacks, but following a stream of good connecting play, new recruit Frankie, smoothly flicked one into the back of the net over the goalie (who was on the floor) taking the Mighty L3s to 1-0 up. With continued pressure on Oxford D, we were rewarded again with Gabs slipping one into the corner, leaving the half-time score at 2-0.
After half time Oxford came out harder, pressing us more and putting more pressure on our own defense. The game was very end to end, but an unfortunate short corner given Oxford, an the ensuing straight strike into the corner of the goal put Oxford back in the game. Despite some close calls near the end, we held it together for a final result of 2-1.
MOM: Joint for Kirsty, Alice P and Frankie B
