Match Report
Oxford Grove v Crusaders

After last week's morale boosting win we came back down to earth against a team that outplayed us in every department. It's not as if we played all that badly but that Oxford Grove played very well. There was some good interplay between the front players and some determined defending but we were second to most 50-50 balls and failed to make the most of our opportunities.
Giving away an early penalty set the tone for the game and we were always chasing the game after that. Whenever we gave Oxford Grove a chance they accepted it with glee and only some fine saves by Jack kept the score down. Joseph produced his usual all-action display and Sam was effective flitting between midfield and attack, taking his goal very well when one-on-one with the keeper. Our other goal was an own-goal following a scramble in the area with Jack A being credited with the assist. It was Samuel however who produced his best performance of the season and took the man-of-the-match award.

Final score: Oxford Grove 6-2 Crusaders

Man of the Match: Samuel.
