FOOTBALL: Curtis clinches it for Summertown
7:30am Wednesday 5th March 2014 in Sport
SUMMERTOWN Stars Reds continued their fine recent run of form by winning the Oxford Mail Youth League Under 11 Shield final.
Ben Curtis sealed their 3-1 victory over Greater Leys Youth with a late free-kick in an entertaining match.
Early pressure from Stars led to a goal from left winger Zéphyr Goriely.
Edward Sanderson doubled the lead when he netted from close range as Summertown, who had beaten runaway Division D champions Kidlington Youth to reach the final, went 2-0 ahead.
Greater Leys’ Adam Brown gave his team hope in the second-half, when he slipped his marker at a corner to score.
But Summertown nerves were finally calmed by a superbly struck free-kick from defender Curtis, which cleared the wall and nestled in the net.
