City Go Back Top
By Wayne Holden
Oxford City Ladies U18's went back to the top of the table with an outstanding 4-0 in at home to Northampton Town
They took the lead on 7 minutes, as captain Courtney Sumner was brought down in the box, then picked herself up to calmly slot home the penalty. On 13 minutes the same player doubled the scoring with hers and City's second, this time with a 25 yard screamer after good work from Shelley Knight. 18 minutes, and the game was all but wrapped up, as Rosie McCabe went on a mazy run, and unselfishly squared to Ellie Larkin to slot home and put City 3-0 up. City continued to pile on the pressure, but the 4th goal came into injury time in the first half, as the lively Kiera Isaac battled her way through challenges to get a much deserved goal.
City held firm in the second half to complete an impressive 4-0 win, and go into 2016 top of the table.
