Oxford Floorball started the season in division 1 of the Midlands in a fantastic fashion by winning the first two games of the year, improving throughout the tournament but realising the need for fitness sessions to be better prepared for next time.
Oxford Wakefield 3-2 (Ian, Felix, Ian)
A very tough (rough) first game where Wakefield showed a lot of fighting spirit. Ian scored the first goal of the season, assisted by Alberto. Felix scored the second goal assisted by Zia. Ian put in the winning goal, assisted by Johan. Raimond saved us many, many times.
Oxford – Manchester 3-1 (Johan, Felix, Alberto)
A very close and intense game against Manchester with both teams lacking energy towards the end of the game. Raimond continued to save us over and over again. Johan scored the first goal of the game, assisted by Dan, Felix increased the lead assisted by Johan. Manchester then scored once before Alberto decided to go on a solo run to score the final goal.
Oxford (Back row): Zia Saleh, Matthias Dilling, Johan Cassel, Dan Zaitsev, Alberto, David Morrey, Andy Powell
