OUP: Jimmy Gray
Add: Junior Howard (2)
On a fine sunny afternoon but on a rock hard pitch the first half was closely contested. The Adderbury keeper was the busier and OUP had a neatly taken strike disallowed for a marginal offside. In reply, Adderbury hit the woodwork with a fierce shot.
After 75 minutes with neither side looking able to break the deadlock,2 individual mistakes in the OUP back line in less than 5 minutes allowed the Adderbury No 9 Junior Howards chances on goal from close range. He took both well, the first slightly misshit which deceived the OUP keeper Chris Hickin and the second confidently stroked past the stranded keeper.
However, the game was not over and OUP finished strongly. A period of heavy pressure on the Adderbury goal with 5 consecutive corners, ended with a fine strike by Jimmy Gray from an acute angle which beat the Adderbury keeper at the far post.
