Led by captain Josh “Ibrahimovic” Cutting, the strong OF squad (consisting of 5 St. George’s Six’s winners) started very quickly. Tom “under a massive thumb” Dunnett fired the ball across the top of the D for J. Cutting to score the 1st goal 3 minutes from the start. The second followed in quick succession, with Dunnett putting J. Cutting through for a skilful reverse stick finish. Some great individual play from Ben “breakfast chef” Gowing followed, beating all of the College defence and slotting the ball home to make it 3-0 on the 20 minute mark. Moments before half time, J. Cutting completed his hat-trick, finding the back of the net after receiving a perfectly weighted through ball from Gowing. 4-0 to the OFs at half time.
The second half started slowly, the College attacked a number of times down their stronger right hand side, but were no match for the formidable Ben “national league” Wright in defence. A second individual effort from Gowing resulted in a 5th goal after 45 minutes. Patrick “I’m going to be a pro golfer, honest” Spraggs attempted his customary reverse stick strike and missed, as usual. Shortly after this failed attempt the OFs attacked with some slick play from Oliver “who ate all the pies” Cutting and were awarded a penalty corner. Jack “drag-flick” O’brien stepped up. The flick narrowly missed the top left corner, but the technique exhibited by O’brien was exemplary and wholly due to his 12 months of training for this very day – National League side East Grinstead have already expressed interest in the formidable O’Brien. The College countered following a weak attack from the OFs and scored to make the score 5-1 with 15 minutes to go. Solid build up play from Andy “I’m 51 but still think I’m 19” Cutting set up Will “don’t touch my hair I spent a lot of time on this” Squirrel who fired the ball home to make the final score 6-1.
The OFs would like to thank Mr. Kingston for the fixture and wish the College all the best for their season.
