Run­corn’s thirds see off Ox­ton

Runcorn & Widnes Weekly News - - In Business -

Ox­ton V 3 Run­corn III 4 RIGHT from the start of this game Run­corn were in con­trol but strug­gled to con­vert one of their many chances.

The break­through came late in the first half with Richard Lovsin net­ting his first goal of the sea­son.

The sec­ond half started well for Run­corn and they were soon two goals up from a Gra­ham Skel­land penalty cor­ner.

Un­for­tu­nately for Run­corn, a cou­ple of mis­takes in the mid­field led to two quick goals for Ox­ton draw­ing them level.

Par­ity did not last long as Mark Perry scored his first goal for Run­corn fol­lowed soon af­ter by a sec­ond for Lovsin.

With time run­ning out in the en­counter, Ox­ton pushed hard and man­aged to claim their third goal with less than a minute left on the clock. How­ever, Run­corn saw the re­main­ing time out to claim the points.

There were some great per­for­mances from young­sters Kieran Thomp­son and Richard Big­nall which made this a very sat­is­fy­ing win for Run­corn.
