YOUTH FOOTBALL: O'Brien hammers glorious five-timer
12:00pm Wednesday 18th December 2013 in Sport
Declan O’Brien scored all five of Bampton Town Youth’s goals as they beat Bloxham 5-1 at home in the Giles Sports Witney Youth Under 10 Red League.
Ted Allen replied for the visitors, but the damage was done.
Josh Howell netted a double as Eynsham Youth defeated Deddington Town Colts 3-1 at home in the Under 10 White League.
The hosts started strongly and took the lead on four minutes when Howell put away Leo Norton’s through ball.
Seven minutes later Howell made it 2-0 with his second goal, poking home after Deddington failed to clear their lines.
Deddington tried to get back into the game, but Eynsham’s keeper Shay Bur-ton made some good saves to preserve their two-goal cushion.
Eynsham kept up the pressure, but it wasn’t until the second-half that they sealed victory with No 3.
And what a fantastic goal it was too.
Harry Harraway charged into the box before smashing home a stunning shot on the run past the keeper at his near post.
Will Mansfield hit back for the visitors, but it was too late as Eynsham completed their success.
