Rascals waltz past Oxford


Rascals win final game of 2018 4-1

A confident Rascals side saw off hardworking Oxford 7's 4 - 1 in what was a wet and blustery late afternoon. The game started in pleasant December sunshine and the young Reading side took an early one goal lead through Oliver Cavendish, Ian Cox then doubled the score after good work from Max Reed, who then added a third just before half time. Early in the second half Reading further extended their lead, another well taken goal from Ian Cox after a fine save from the Oxford keeper. There was then a 10-15 minute period of cold driving rain that disturbed the flow of the game and allowed Oxford to get back in to the game. An unfortunate deflection from Mike Sartorius gave the visitors a consolation goal but the Rascals then regrouped and ensured that the result was never in doubt. James Ellwood had an excellent game on the left and was unlucky not to score on several occasions. Ben Partridge, Jacob Jones and Will Green all put in another very hard working stint and Cam Mitchell didn't put a foot wrong in goal. Good Rascals debut from Jack Nichols and another solid performance from Matt Thorne at the back saw the Rascals continue their successful season.
