Carterton u17s Move up to 3rd in the Oxford Invitation League
By Philip Godfrey
Kidlington U17s 1 - 2 Carterton FC U17s
A very wet day saw an Injury ravaged Carterton Team turn up at Stratfield Brake Kidlington. The home team fielded a very strong side with 5 subs, however the away team dominated play with strong possession football. A smooth one touch move between the Carterton Midfeld saw Marcus Owsnett burst through and score. Chances went missing as Carterton pushed for the second goal but Kidlington defended well . In the second half Carterton again dominated the game pushing Kidlington into their own half but chances from George Wright, Joe Langdon and Jay Revill couldn't find the net. Against the run of play Kidlington counter attacked and scored to bring the game level at 1-1. Carterton legs were tiring with the fresh substitutions of Kidlington but still Carterton pressed for the second goal. Eventually late in the game Connor Butler popped up in the box to head home securing the 3 points.
