Ketteirng Town u14 Elite v Oxford FD u14
"The u14’s welcomed Oxford today for a league game looking to build on the previous 2 weeks excellent performances.
Oxford unlike KTFC were a big physical side who looked to get the ball forward quickly and directly. This played into KTFC hands in the first half as the solid back 4 comfortably dealt with everything thrown at them.
Against the run of play Oxford took the lead when a half cleared ball was volleyed superbly by their left winger. This stung KTFC in life and drew level close to half time with Sam Evans latching on to a ball over the top to score at the second attempt following the keepers block.
The second half saw KTFC dominate and took the lead when a fine move was finished once again by Sam Evans. Chances were few and far as the gane became very competitive with both sides putting on a good show. Oxford against the run of play drew level with another fine strike outside the box, setting up a grandstand finish.
The game ended 2-2 with KTFC possibly edging it, however a huge plus being the groups of boys collectively competing with a strong, physical but fair Oxford side. Lots of positives to be taken away in game that 2/3 months ago KTFC would certainly have lost.
Well done both sides..... both a credit to their respective clubs."
