OXFORDSHIRE SENIOR LEAGUE

OAKLEY boosted their Premier Division title hopes with a 2-0 victory at second-placed Hors-path.

The win put Oakley nine points clear of Horspath, with third-placed Mansfield, who have three games in hand, now likely to be their main challengers.

It was evenly poised until the 70th minute when Shayne Almond scored with a fantastic 25-yard free kick.

The game was settled on 80 minutes when the lively James Keeble fired in from the edge of the box.

Marston Saints came from behind to defeat struggling Launton Sports 2-1.

The visitors took the lead on 17 minutes when Andrew Gledhill fired in a low drive.

Marston keeper Craig Greenough kept them at bay with a great save before Ricky Goodenough set up Kane Adams to equalise.

Dan Fraser fired home the winner on 70 mins after a scramble in the Launton box.

Ben Foster’s strike sealed Bletchingdon’s 3-1 home victory over Adderbury Park.

Richard Wells and Todd Parker-Hunt (penalty) put Bletchingdon ahead before Gavin Conner pulled one back against the run of play.

Chalgrove fought back from 2-0 down to draw 2-2 at Oxford University Press.

Neil Lockhart put OUP in control with goals on 20 and 40 minutes.

But Jonny Cox stabbed home for Chalgrove before Nick Skiller finished a sweeping move for the equaliser.

Freeland stayed fourth after a 1-1 draw at home to Riverside.

Dan Sherbourne headed Freeland in front, but Paul Brough finished well to level.
