A dour encounter sprang to life after 70 minutes when Callum Green found the target for Kidlington.

Philp Shy gave Stonesfield an interval lead from the penalty spot.

But Paul Brough put Riverside level with a lob, and shortly afterwards Carley Bloomfield put the host 2-1 ahead.

But the ten men were inspired and Bloomfield grabbed the winner.
