RAM­PANT CITY CRACK BEAVERS FOR FOUR

HAMP­TON & RICH 2 OX­FORD CITY 4

The Non-League Football Paper - - NATIONAL LEAGUE SOUTH - By Luke Lam­bourne

HAMP­TON’S poor re­cent run con­tin­ued against a bustling Ox­ford City.

The Beavers again con­ceded a very early goal, City’s Zac McEachran cut­ting in from the right to bury the ball past Hamp­ton keeper Tom Love­lock.

On ten min­utes, Kabo Tshi­manga out­paced the Hamp­ton back four to earn a one on one against Love­lock, but the keeper was up to the chal­lenge and saved low to his right.

Hamp­ton had their first real chance mid­way through the first half, as Chris Dick­son's pass found Dan Uchechi by the penalty spot, but his shot was well wide.

How­ever, City ex­tended their lead just be­fore the half hour as Tshi­manga turned in McEachran’s cross from the right, leav­ing Love­lock stranded.

Right on half-time, City took ad­van­tage of some poor de­fend­ing by the Hamp­ton de­fence as Joe Oastler rose high­est to nod in McEachran’s cor­ner.

Hamp­ton got back into the game early in the sec­ond half with a 25-yard strike from Jack Con­nors that left City keeper Craig King flat­footed as he watched it fly into the net.

Ox­ford added an­other late on through Kyren Wilt­shire be­fore the Beavers got an in­jury­time con­so­la­tion through a Jack Con­nor tap-in.
