OXFORD City Stars followed head coach Kenny Redmond’s advice to a tee with an astonishing 14-1 thrashing of visitors Invicta Mustangs.

The one-sided scoreline maintained Stars’ unbeaten home record and their place in the top three of English National League South Division 2.

Before the match, Redmond told them they needed to put away their chances – and they did that in style, Kamil Kinkor leading the way with four goals.

Redmond said: “It was a pleasing performance. After the Slough game we asked the boys to be more clinical in front of goal and they took that on board.

“We came out strongly and set the tone for the match early on, scoring three early goals.

“I thought we moved the puck well and our team work was excellent.

“The table is just starting to shape up and we need to remain consistent and focused.”

Stars, who fired in 58 shots during the game, took the lead after 34 seconds, Matthew Lawday shooting home from Dominic Hopkins’s assist.

After three minutes, the hosts were 3-0 ahead after strikes from Kinkor and Lawday.

It was one-way traffic as Darren Elliott converted Dax Hedges’s pass, before a double from Joe Edwards made it 6-0 at the end of the first period.

The result was already beyond doubt, but there was no let up from Stars.

Within 45 seconds of the restart, Hopkins added the seventh.

A double from Kinkor, either side of an effort from Jake Flore, increased Stars’ lead to 10-0 at the end of the second period.

When Elliott and Lawday hit their second goals in the first four minutes of the final period, there was a chance they could get close to 20 goals.

But Kingsbury Ferris netted for Mustangs in the 45th minute, after, which Stars mustered just two more goals from Josh Oliver and Kinkor, who completed his four-timer.
