Great win in Oxford last night. After a very lacklustre opening period laden with individual errors we were 0 - 1 down. Had it not been for Wridey it would have been worse, he kept us in the game during that period.
Connor Goode levelled the score in the second minute of the second period and from then on the lads settled into the game and put the pressure on. A mid-period powerplay goal from Ross Bowers gave us the lead, and then James Clarke took probably the best penalty ...of his life! Oxford overstretched themselves on the resulting powerplay and we hit them not once but twice with shorthanded goals from Jamie Line and Jakub Klima - both excellent finishes.
At 4 - 1 up at the end of the second it was a long way back for Oxford, but they managed a consolation goal in the third before Connor Goode scored on a delayed penalty (although the game sheet and stats credit the goal to Klima!) to make it 2 - 5.
Oxford pulled their netminder with 30 seconds to go, only for Ross Green to score from our own zone to finish the game 2 - 6.
Jamie Line picked up the beers for man of the match.
