Match Report
Radley College 1st X vs  St Helen & St Katharine Girls-U18A
On: Tuesday, 05 Dec 2023
Venue: at Home

An excellent finish to the season, with SHSK making the short journey over from Abingdon to take on the Radley team. In typical fashion, our opponents scored first, which drew a determined reply: Woody scored one to level, then Rory A-G got Radley's noses in front. Another from Woody set Radley at 3-1 ahead, before SHSK pulled back to leave things finely-balanced at 3-2. Cometh the hour, cometh the men: Morgan secured breathing space at the half time whistle with his first, before he and Freddie B. put on quite a show sharing all four second-half goals. So a flattering final scoreline in large part thanks to the commitment of the midfield maestros who drove home an 8-2 win, with Freddie B providing a second-half hattrick that left even his golden stick rival Morgan impressed. Thanks indeed to St Helen's for coming over and providing an excellent opposition on the Astro. They are understandably keen for a return fixture on their home grass pitch, knowing that this can change the dynamic of a match somewhat.
