Lucky 13 for City
By Wayne Holden
Oxford City travelled to Aylesbury United, and came away with an emphatic 13-1 win to keep p their 100% winning start to the season.
On a beautiful sunny Saturday morning, City played some delightful football on a fine pitch. They continued where they left off after their last big win against Caversham-Thatcham United. The first 10 minutes was a tight affair, but once the first goal went in after 12 minutes, City never looked back, and scored 7 fantastic team goals in the first half through a hat-trick from Molly Lygo (12,33 & 36 mins), Lauren Page (19 mins), Courtney Sumner (22 mins), Shelley Knight (25 mins) & Ellie Larkin (39 mins).
They carried on their good work in the 2nd half and added another 6 with a hat-trick from Lara Althorp (46, 60, 62 mins), Lygo added her 4th on 54 mins, Dara Austin got in on the act on 87 mins, and the scoring completed by Page adding her 2nd on 89 mins. Aylesbury did get themselves a deserved consolation midway through the 2nd half, but it was little too late, as City took the honours 13-1.
Another outstanding display from City.
