Mighty Oaks cage the Lions
|0 - 5|
Oakwood started the year with a real statement of intent as they came away from Rowley Lane with a handsome 5-0 victory over Lions Blue.
Doubles from Brad Wine and Guy Helman plus one from goal-poacher Anthony Kintish completed the rout.
Oaks boss Ric Blank told JC Sport: "It was a comfortable win today as the scoreline suggests. In fact it could have been more had we not been profligate in front of goal throughout. But we'll take 5-0 - not just for the goals, but also the clean sheet.
"We controlled the game from start to finish and once the second goal went in it was game over and we played some fantastic stuff without really hitting top gear.
"The immaculate Rowley Lane pitch definitely contributed to that. It was pleasing that we had so many unavailable, but we were still able to produce that result. It also gave me a chance to give some players the football they deserve and they didn't let me down.
"We've got a big few weeks and we're looking forward to it all."
