United welcomed to East Oxford to Horton View on a blustery morning. Kick off was delayed as the opposition yet again couldnt make their way North in time for designated kick off time for the second successive season. East dominated the ball for long periods in the first half, opening the scoring as early as the fourth minute when United initially cleared a corner but didnt pick up on the second phase. Despite not having much of the ball at this stage United did have some good phases of play that the opoosition struggled to defend. A scond came from a well excuted free kick on the edge of box. United made some changes and got back into the game when they broke at pace with Freddie Tyzack, he outpaced the back line and scored with power and precision from the edge of the box when under intense pressure from the defender. The rest of the half was far more even but a defensive lapse proved crucial and East scored a third before the break.
Half time was all about keeping the pressure up on the ball and who scored next, it was East and within 30 seconds! There was a lack of cover within the centre in the United team as East secured the game. However United dominated the second half for long periods with one or two half chances going begging. With just under 10 minutes to play they was rewarded with a penalty as Freddie Tyzack battled fairly with the defender and as the ball broke the defender concentrated his efforts on the man which resulted in a spot kick. This didnt prove to swing the game in the home teams favour as the kick from Dziugas Ringys was easily saved (although he was stood at least 2 yards off his line even at the start of the routine). East Oxford were worthy winners on the day and look to be convincing Champions of this league, United can be proud of their efforts against a good side at this level.
