Hey guys, today was our first day in the South League! We played two games, against the London Vikings and the London Great White Sharks, last year’s UK champions.
Oxford 4-1 Vikings
Maxi x2 (Alberto, Marcus)
Zia x2 (Felix, Alberto)
The Vikings arrived quite late which meant we had to shorten the game to two periods of 20 minutes. We took advantage of their lack of subs with some great offensive pressure and good shooting. Our new players brought in a lot of movement which was a key element of our victory. Great start to the season!
Oxford 0-9 Great White Sharks
Last year’s UK champions were too good for us. We struggled in the first period but changed the formation to 2-1-2 which helped a lot. We had some good defending and some decent offensive chances but we were no match for the Sharks.
Overall, a very positive tournament day! Shout out to Si Hong, Marcus, and Ryan who played for the club for the first time!
