Match Report

MRFC started a little slowly and Kidlington manufactured a few good chances. The game then evened out, but just as the momentum shift was almost completed, Kidlington pounced on a poor clearance and finished in style. This did not put MRFC off, they kept pushing for a goal and with a good dribble Aaron got the obligatory penalty. It was not to be MRFC’s day, the excellent Kidlington keeper pulled off a great save and with MRFC forming a very British queue to tap in the rebound, English politeness took over and the four man conversation went something like this: “after you”, “oh no I couldn’t possibly go first”, “but I insist”, “well if you really, I say what is all this argy bargy rushing…”. MRFC continued to press until half time, but they just could get behind the excellent Kidlington back line. The next goal was going to be crucial. Unfortunately, Kidlington got it against the run of play. This somewhat deflated MRFC and the game became very ragged and a third goal followed. MRFC re-inflated a little and pressed for a goal, the very least they deserved, it did not arrive.
