WOMEN taught men a football lesson in a charity match at the weekend.

Wychwood Ladies FC beat Milton-under-Wychwood FC men’s team 6-4 at The Green in Milton-under-Wychwood on Saturday.

The second annual match was billed as Judgement Day for the two sides and the women believe they embarrassed their opponents by triumphing again.

Striker Leah Hunt, 19, from Enstone, said: “We showed we’re definitely the better team.

“They were all right about it because it happened last year but a bit embarrassed.

“The goalkeeper was annoyed because he couldn’t stop my goal. It was a really hard shot, which I hit into the top of the net.”

The women were helped by two penalties and an own goal but Miss Hunt, who will study sports massage therapy at City of Oxford College from next month, said it was a fair result.

She added: “The referee was a little bit on our side but he was fair. Towards the end we had all our team on the pitch so for the last 15 minutes there were about 16 players on our side but it was already 6-4 by then.”

The event, which also included activities like face painting, tombola, lucky dip, raffle, beat the goalie, barbecue and disco, raised about £300 for YoungDementia UK, based in Witney.
