First published in Sport

Oxfordshire Shield

HARRY Moore’s late try earned Blue Boar a dramatic 14-10 semi-final victory at Littlemore.

The hosts led 10-7 and looked to be closing out for a hard-fought win before Moore pounced on a loose ball from a scrum and Oscar Matthews converted.

Littlemore took the lead with a penalty from Ben De’Figuieredo, but Boar replied with an Ali McRobert try, converted by Matthews.

The hosts led 10-7 after Luke Ward went over, De’Figuieredo converting.

But Moore struck and Matthews converted with the final action of the match.

Boar will face Chipping Norton in the final after they won 70-5 at Wheatley.

Matt Dawson scored four tries, while Barry Nutt kicked all ten conversions.

Dean Beauchamp, Neil Stannard, Matty King, Steve Corley, Sam Jackson and Kieran Phillips Tebb also notched, while Alex Grove replied for Wheatley.
