Enstone Sports Res beat Broughton & North Newington Res 3-2 at home in Oxfordshire Senior League Division 3, though the game was marred by a serious head injury to Andy Sharman.
He was taken to hospital where 20 stitches were inserted in a head wound after he was accidentally caught by a high boot.
Stefan Lang fired the hosts ahead, only for Steve Adkins to level.
After the break, Chris Mullard restored Enstone’s lead from the penalty spot after being fouled and Richard Ghagan made it 3-1.
Gareth Davies clawed a goal back, before Sharman suffered his injury.
Div 3: Stonesfield 6 (J Brown 2, D Bartle, N Clarke, S Baker, T Higgs), Horspath 1 (D Newington); North Oxford Res 2 (A Gibney, L Trotman), Watlington Res 0.
