Oakwood B vs Boca Jewniors
|7 - 1|
Thomas Parmiters School, High Elms Lane, Garston
Oakwood B returned to winning ways with an emphatic 7-1 win over Boca at Parmiters.
Oakwood were very impressive in beating Boca and bouncing back well from last week's disappointment. The home side took the lead early on through Matt Geey who tapped in at the back post following good work from Dave Epstein.
It was two soon after with Ben Polak poking home after his initial header was well saved. Then the moment of the match and potentially of 2012. Forget Hoy, forget Murray, forget The Ryder Cup. This was special. Epstein scored his first goal in 8 years in style. Linking up nicely with Geey, he went through and chipped the keeper from 12 yards - a goal the reaked of class. He celebrated by running 50 yards to embrace his manager
A delighted Epstein said: "Tus is the first guy what's believed in me. He's not only a great boss but he's a great bloke too. It's well documented that I fell out with Rick Blank who treated me like a piece of leftover matzah on seder night, but Tus has gave me the confidence to believe in myself again. That goal was for him and is two fingers up at Blank!"
Three became four soon after as Charlie Cohen bagged his first goal capitalising on some hesitant defending in the Boca area.
The second half was much the same as the first and the oaks went further ahead as debutant Johnny Pressman scored from close range.
Cohen followed up a Geey effort and Polak scored a tremendous header for his seventh of the season from a wonderous Geey cross.
Boca pulled one back late on as Cohen backheaded in from 45 yards, an own goal dubbed "bizarre" by Polak's watching brother.
Oaks boss Ian Tussie told JC Sport: "All in all it was a satisfying result and a good performance. I'm happy with the points and delighted for Eppy. He's had unfair criticism in the past from lots and lots of people, but he showed his quality today and hopefully it's a sign of more things to come."
Boca boss Jamie Weinrich commented: "My boys tried their hardest, but with two players pulling out this morning, we didn't play the way we wanted to. We wanted to build on our fantastic win two weeks ago, but things went against us."
Keeper Ryan Monk added: "Simply, we were overrun in all areas. But credit to the boys they stuck at it for 90 miuute.
"The chances are I will be appearing in the new Daz doorstep advert given the amount of times I was lying down in the mud today!"
