9:00am Wednesday 2nd October 2013 in Sport
MANSFIELD Road thrashed struggling Garsington 6-0 to leave the visitors still searching for their first Oxfordshire Senior League Premier Division win of the season.
Luis McGillycuddy gave Garsington the lead after 15 minutes, Jamie Cockfield added a second and Dan Trinder converted a penalty, with Michael Kottman adding a fourth before half-time.
Cockfield struck again after the break, and substitute Roger Gill completed the rout.
Adderbury Park were beaten for the second consecutive match as they slipped to a 2-1 defeat at home to Bletchingdon.
Two goals just before half-time from Ben Foster and Andy McGowan dealt the hosts a crucial blow.
James Trevitt pulled one back from the penalty spot in the second half, but Park were unable to muster an equaliser.
Oakley United’s 100 per cent record was brought to an end as they drew 2-2 at Marston Saints.
James Keeble gave the visitors an early lead with a fine volley from the edge of the box.
Kane Adams pulled Marston level with a powerful free-kick, only for Sam Grays to restore Oakley’s lead five minutes from half-time.
But the leaders were denied a seventh straight victory when John Hudson levelled from the penalty spot on 65 minutes after a foul by Mitchell Meredith.
Sam Wharton scored twice as Oxford University Press won 3-0 to inflict a first defeat of the season upon Launton Sports.
Neil Lockhart finished a nice passing move to give the hosts the lead, before Wharton added gloss to the result with two second-half strikes.
A dominant first-half display earned Freeland a 2-0 win at Horspath.
Nathan Blackwell opened the scoring with a header, and Jason Smith’s close-range effort after 25 minutes doubled their advantage.
Horspath rallied in the second half and came close to reducing the deficit when Craig Piston’s free-kick drew an excellent save from goalkeeper Joseph White.
Mick Phipps headed home deep into first-half stoppage time to give Stonesfield a 1-0 win at Chalgrove after the home side’s defence failed to clear their lines.
Despite second-half efforts from Simon Godfrey and Nick Skiller, Chalgrove were unable to find an equaliser and fell to their fourth defeat in five games.
Kidlington Res twice came from behind to win 3-2 at Charlton United and extend their 100 per cent record in Division 1 to four games.
Jamie Fisher cancelled out Antony Davis’s opener for Charlton.
But the hosts regained the lead shortly before the break, when Danial Sweeney headed in.
Max Dunmall poked in Lewis Colwell’s cross to level the scores on the hour mark, before Fisher tapped in a rebound for the winner after Lenny Sackey had hit a post.
Watlington fell behind in the first minute at home to Broughton & North Newington, but struck back to secure an emphatic 4-1 victory.
Jack Kettle’s curling shot found the bottom corner to give Broughton a flying start.
Alan Stevenson started the comeback shortly before half-time and after Julian Pits had given the hosts the lead Jonny Pits added a brace to seal Watlington’s first win of the season.
Goals from Arron Campbell, Ben Hibbins and Kyle Pullen helped Northway win 3-1 at Enstone, whose first-team games have been taken over by the reserve side.
Dave Villers pulled a goal back for Enstone after the visitors had taken a quick two-goal lead.
But after the hosts lost three players to injury the match was effectively over, and Pullen was able to add a third.
Kidlington Old Boys played out a thrilling 4-4 draw at home to Eynsham.
Tom McCudden’s brace, Will Morris and Chris Clarke made up Eynsham’s tally.
But Kristian Thomas (2), Tony Skinner and Danny Burrow ensured Kidlington took a share of the spoils.
Jamie Perkin scored twice in Freeland Res’s 3-2 home win over Bletchingdon Res in Division 2.
Jordan Bye put Bletchingdon ahead after capitalising on a defensive error, but Perkin struck either side of half-time to give the hosts the lead, which was soon extended by Jake Halsey.
Alex Garth bundled in to cut the deficit shortly before the final whistle.
All three goals came from set-pieces in Eynsham Res’s 2-1 home defeat by Stonesfield Res.
The visitors took a two-goal lead through a Dominic White free-kick and a Lewis Stayte penalty, before Jamie Hodges netted a spot-kick for Eynsham.
Adderbury Park Res dropped to second as they were held to a 0-0 draw at Middleton Cheney Res.
Oakley Res continued their 100 per cent start in Division 3 with a 5-2 victory at home to Launton Sports Res.
Two goals from Dan Toma and one apiece from Dean Boyles, Liam Abbott and Darren Gascoigne gave the hosts victory, with Lee White and Mike Woodward replying.
James Castle scored in each half to help Broughton & North Newington Res to a 2-2 draw at home to Charlton United Res.
He equalised for the hosts after Jamie Gough’s cross had eluded everyone to give Charlton the lead.
Castle was on target again to put the home side in front, but Richard Knight scored from a corner to earn a point for the visitors.
