We played two league games as part of the Midlands UKFF Division and our results were as follows:
Oxford – Rhinos 3-12
After drawing with the Rhinos 3-3 after one period, we struggled to keep up with their fast and accurate passing game. The end result was rather cruel.
Goals for Oxford: Milan (Maxi), Johan (unass.), Felix (unass.)
Oxford – Nottingham 7-3
A much better game overall. Nottingham brought 20 players (4 lines +!!) to really test our fitness levels. We were playing with 6 forwards and three defencemen. Thanks to our grilling fitness sessions led by Matthias Dilling and Felix Westerén we did not succumb and defended admirably. Props to Lucas Buzaglo for his good defensive play and Richard Matoušek on his first goal! Both were representing Oxford for the first time. Also worth mentioning Johan Cassel and his great defensive efforts that often left him limping off the rink…
Goals for Oxford:
Well done to everyone who played today!
Oxford (back row): Lucas Buzaglo, Andy Powell, Felix Westerén, Milan Fowkes, Maximilian Strobl, Johan Cassel
Front row: Richard Matoušek, Dan Zaitsev, Raimonds Rimarenko and Ian Yang.
