BHC Men's 3s - 4, Newbury 3s - 1
After a demoralising scoreline from the previous week, Banbury started the game with determination.
Banbury started strong with consistent possession from pushback and in the first 5 minutes launched an attack through the midfield that led to a short corner. A punishing drag flick from Matt Bull put Banbury ahead. 1-0 Banbury.
Banbury dominated for the rest of the first half scoring 2 more goals from 2 well-drilled short corners. A surprise counterattack led to a consolation goal making the score 3-1. A fourth goal came for Banbury in the closing stages of the first half from an open play mid-air shot from Gareth Williams.
Knowing that Newbury would want to up their game in the second half Banbury held their defensive positions resulting in no further goals for either side. 4-1 final score to Banbury.
