Disappointing result for Stourbridge...
By JOHN DANKS
As Oadby win comfortably with 4 Goals to Nill.
Stourbridge welcomed Oadby Owls to Lea Castle for this MJPL fixture which was to be played on a fine autumn morning.
With both teams having gained good results a close game was expected, however it proved to be a comfortable win for the away team. Oadby started very quickly and took the lead early in the first half with some good neat wing play down the Stourbridge left which resulted in a fine finish from the striker across the Stourbridge goalkeeper in to the far corner. The visitors had a period on top but some good defending from the home team stopped the advantage increasing. In truth the home team retained possession for periods but rarely threatened the visitors goal with the exception on a couple of long range efforts from Jakob.
The visitors were comfortable to let the home team have the ball for periods but looked dangerous on the counter with their number 20 showing good pace on the break. He soon made it 0-2 when a great ball between the full back and the center back was seized upon but the forward who again finished with great composure. This was to be the basis for the remainder of the match, and they made it 0-3 from a scrappy corner which was prodded home from yard or so out. The scoring was completed when a low strike from outside the box found the bottom corner of the Stourbridge net.
Oadby played well and were very sharp, a good team who try and play the right way.
All the best to Oadby for the remainder of the season from all at Stourbridge.
