There is no such thing as an ‘easy game’ in this league...
Already, teams are stealing points off each other from top to bottom. Last weekend saw another interesting challenge, with a well drilled, fit Oxford University ready to welcome GHC Men’s 1s after a long journey.
GHC started well, putting relentless pressure on Oxford defence. Oxford Alumnus, Dan Fox, AKA ‘Foxy’, put a direct pass into the circle which Ross Fergusson finished off with ease. Unfortunately, the next 15 to 20 minutes saw us take our foot off the pedal and Oxford capitalised with a late equaliser.
Thank goodness for halftime, because GHC came out firing and the second half saw three unanswered goals in what was a professional performance.
GHC M1 4 -1 Oxford University
- Fergusson (2)
- Ellis-Woodley (1)
- Remke (1)
Man of the Match: Esplen
Next Saturday is a top of the table clash at Indian Gymkhana - both teams now the only unbeaten teams with 4 wins from 4 matches (GHC ahead on goal difference).
