Banbury Ladies 3s 3 v 2 Marlow Ladies 3s
Bloxham, 20th February
This week saw an epic victory for Banbury Ladies 3s as they took on top of the table Marlow, who had only dropped 3 points all season. Marlow started strongly and took the lead just 10 minutes in to the first half, however a spirited Banbury played united as a team to create an equaliser from a short corner, as Hailey Mitchell forced the ball over the line, after being played in by Charlotte Page. Marlow battled hard and scored their second on the stroke of half time.
Buoyed on from their performance Banbury pressed valiantly in to second half and created two further goals within 15 minutes, both from Page as she tore through the Marlow defence. The league leaders continued to test Banbury, dominating the majority of the play for the final 20 minutes, however Banbury defended gallantly ushering the game out for a 3-2 win.
Banbury hold their position at 3rd in the league, taking on second place Oxford Hawks at 2pm this Saturday, at North Oxfordshire Academy, Banbury.
