Football Team - City Cup

As runners up last year, Oakwood had a bye through the previous round of the City Cup. This meant that this evening's game was for a place in the quarter finals.

After a delayed start, Oakwood began the match in confident fashion - creating several promising attacks. However, from an Oakwood corner, Mount Pleasant broke and after a mazy run, managed to find the bottom corner of the net. Oakwood pushed but could not find their passing rhythm before half time.

Three changes at half time seemed to jolt Oakwood back to life and the passing started to improve despite some rugged tackles from Mount Pleasant. Oakwood drew level after a neat shot was saved by the Mount Pleasant 'keeper when the rebound was bundled in. Finding a new gear during the final 5 minutes, Oakwood moved the ball quickly and finally made their domination show - scoring 3 more goals before the final whistle blew.

Well done to Player of the Match - Tom - for a fantastic second half performance.
Goal scorers: Tom (1), Sonny (2) & Caitlin (1).
