OXFORD City Stars Kenny Redmond was ecstatic after seeing his side pull off a miraculous 3-2 overtime victory over Guildford Phoenix.

With ten seconds left in the English National League South Division 2 clash at Oxpens, Stars were trailing 2-1.

But then Mike Whillock equalised, and amid amazing scenes, Kamil Kinkor scored their winner 30 seconds in to overtime.

That result, coupled with their 11-2 success away to Haringey Huskies 24 hours earlier, keeps Stars at the top of the table.

Redmond said: “The players showed true grit and character to get over the line.

“They never gave up and showed a winning mentality to keep pressing.

“It was a very dramatic way to win the game, and the scenes at the end were fantastic, the fans were superb and really drove us on.

“The manner of the win should galvanise the whole club.

“I don’t think you could ask for better entertainment.

“We’re playing great hockey, although for the sake of our hearts we’d probably prefer not to leave it so late!

“Overall it was a four-point weekend, which we’re delighted about.”

In their previous meeting, Stars had secured a comfortable 7-1 victory at Guildford.

But Phoenix, who are enjoying a good run of form, proved a much tougher proposition this time.

They opened the scoring through Joshua Abbott seven minutes from the end of the first period.

They doubled their lead 30 seconds in the the second period thanks to Bailey Wootton.

And Stars had to battle to avoid going further behind when both Jake Florey and Conor Redmond served penalties

In the final period, Stars came out with all guns blazing, out-shooting their opponents 22-3.

Jake Florey hammered in a short-handed goal, but they still looked like losing before that amazing climax.

By contrast, Stars success at Haringey the previous day was much more straightforward.

Josh Oliver and Hedges scored hat-tricks, while Josh Florey netted a double.

Redmond, Kinkor and Alex Staples completed the scoring for the visitors who netted six times in the final period.

Sam Park and Daniel Clayton were on target for the Huskies before Stars.
