YOUTH FOOTBALL: Bishop blasts four to blow Puritans away
7:30am Wednesday 11th December 2013 in Youth & Women's
NATHAN Bishop hammered four goals to help Eynsham Youth beat Banbury United Puritans 8-2 in the Under 12 Knockout Cup quarter-finals of the Giles Sports Witney Youth League.
Jonny Harrington put the hosts ahead following a good move, only for Banbury to level through Liam Walsh.
But Eynsham charged into a 4-1 lead, thanks to a 20-minute hat-trick from Bishop, which included a 25-yard free kick.
Bishop completed his four-timer after the break and Dylan Butler made it 6-1.
Although Ben Coleman pulled a goal back for the visitors, Jay Revill headed in No 7 from a corner, before Ollie Hewitt slotted home a last-minute penalty to seal an emphatic victory.
Eynsham Youth fought back from a goal down to defeat Combe Junior Sports 3-1 in the Under 10 White League.
Taylor Phipps fired Combe ahead on two minutes, but a hard low driven shot from Leo Norton saw Eynsham level five minutes later.
Second-half substitute Jacob Moir then gave Eynsham the lead from Harry Harraway’s cross.
And the success was completed when Harry Harraway fired home.
A goal from Joseph Langdon was in vain as Carterton Town lost out 4-1 at home to Middleton Cheney in the Under 11 Knockout Cup.
