Match Report 24th October 2020 – Bicester Hallions First v Chalgrove Cavaliers

OXON SENIOR LEAGUE – DIVISION 1
BICESTER HALLIONS 3 V CHALGROVE CAVALIERS 0

At last the injury list appeared to be easing, with the return of Stu Bridges, Rocky Whiting and Dan Bone, although both Dan Warne and Brooksy were still side-lined, along with the suspended Lewis Bland.
Chalgrove were the visitors today with another 3 league points were at stake as the Hallions looked to maintain their unbeaten run.
As if on cue, the wind and rain arrived just prior to the kick off, with the Hallions having the potential advantage of the wind at their backs. As early as the 4th minute tenacious play by Tai Thomas saw him fashion an opportunity which the visiting keeper Ben Snellgrove did well to save at his near post. Surprisingly the Hallions seemed to take their time in settling into the game as Chalgrove appeared to be untroubled by any home attacks in the early stages.
In the 15th minute Cavaliers Alfie Briggs sprinted through the home defence but as usual Wayne Blossom calmly disposed him as he was about to pull the trigger, and the danger was cleared.
At last the Hallions began to show a bit of quality and composure as they sprayed the ball around in midfield without causing the visitors too much distress.
In the 24th minute Smudger Smith bravely battled his way down the right flank before finding the advancing Stu Bridges, but alas his powerful strike flew inches wide of its intended target,
The deadlock was broken in the 30th minute when Boney picked up the ball in midfield, initially there didn’t appear to be much danger to the visiting defence, but Boney had different ideas as he strode forward before unleashing a long range effort which flew past a beaten Snellgrove in the Chalgrove goal.
Minutes later and the same player was only a nats whisker away from a second with a diving header. On the stroke of half time Reece Green was finally called into action as he quickly sprinted off his line to foil Briggs.
HALF TIME: 1-0
Minutes into the second half Jamie Mundy sent the speedy Liam Godin clear wide out on the right wing. Instantly he went into overdrive to mesmerise the full back before firing home past Snellgrove from a rather acute angle.
As the second half progressed, the windy conditions seemed to produce a rather scrappy period of play, although the Hallions seemed to be in complete control without moving out of 2nd gear.
In the 65th minute neat play in the midfield saw Stu Bridges force Snellgrove into a full length save at the expense of a corner.
With a mere 5 minutes left on the clock it was game, set and match when Chris Schooling fed Tai Thomas who shimmied along the bye line leaving a couple of Chalgrove players seated on the ground before sliding the ball past the bewildered keeper.
Not a great game but 3 good points for a workman like performance in a game which was played in the right spirit and extremely well managed by Graham Norris the appointed referee.

FULL TIME: 3-0
REFEREE: Graham Norris
BICESTER HALLIONS SCORERS: Dan Bone. Liam Godin.Tai Thomas.
