Oakwood 2 v St Francis Rovers 3

Rovers get off to a winning start

St Francis Rovers got off to a winning start by beating Oakwood 3-2 on the opening day of the season, in a very competitive game.

Oakwood had the better of the 1st half and when Rovers failed to close down a Oakwood player, Oakwood took the lead with a low shot into the bottom left hand corner giving the Rovers` goalkeeper no chance.

However, Rovers continued to press forward and created a number of chances themselves, but never really troubling the Oakwood goal keeper.

The 2nd half saw Rovers play much better and taking control of the game. A goal from Nathan Atkinson deservedly got Rovers level, which was soon followed up with a well taken goal by Alex Jonathan.

Rovers continued to press forward and took a 3-1 lead from a great low left footed shot, from Matt Driver.

St Francis continued to play the better football and had a number of half chances on the break, but were thwarted by some very good defending from Oakwood.

Oakwood made St Francis sweat a little after an Oakwood cross was unfortunately turn into their goal by St Francis.

Eventually St Francis saw the game out without Oakwood creating anymore chances.

A fantastic effort by the boys today, particularly coming from behind to take all 3 points.
