FOOTBALL: Bellenger stars as Ducklington bag final glory

First published in Sport

JACK Bellenger hit a double as Ducklington lifted the OFA Ron Smith Under 13 Youth Cup with a 3-0 win over Chinnor at Kidlington.

Bellenger put his side ahead after ten minutes when he finished well from ten yards.

Ducklington stayed on top, but were unable to extend their lead until the second half, when Oliver Crossley’s centre hit a defender and rebounded into the net.

Bellenger made the result safe late on, when he reacted first after a free-kick came back off a post, and the Ducklington man poked home.

Oxford City saw off North Leigh 3-0 to lift the OFA Under 14 Cup at the same venue.

Raphael Rice put his side ahead after 15 minutes, taking advantage of some confusion to slot home.

City doubled their lead 20 minutes into the second period when a determined run down the left from Kyreece Martei resulted in a cross for Hasnain Rana to tap home from six yards.

They wrapped up victory right at the death thanks to a controversial penalty, which was awarded not by the referee, but signalled by his assistant for a push in the box.

City captain Elliot Barton kept his calm, sending the keeper the wrong way in what proved the final action.
