Oxford United bow out on penalties
OXFORD United’s woes on the pitch continued last night as they were knocked out of the Oxfordshire Senior Cup at Kidlington.
The Hellenic Premier Division side won the semi-final 4-3 on a penalty shoot-out after a goalless 120 minutes at Yarnton Road.
Kidlington skipper Lewis Brownhill kept his nerve to convert the winning spot- kick, after Danny Rose and Tyrone Marsh had failed from 12 yards.
United had named a relatively strong side, with seven of their starting line-up having played for the first-team this season.
They had several good chances in a bright opening, but were unable to make the most of them.
Having weathered the storm, Kidlington came into the game.
Brownhill twice went close, forcing Max Crocombe into a smart save with one shot and firing another just wide, in a feisty second half where the hosts collected a flurry of bookings.
Marsh had an 89th-minute header cleared off the line, but Kidlington held on and played out an uneventful extra half-hour, before booking their place in the final on penalties.
Kidlington: Hyslop, C Weedon, Boxer, Quainton, B Weedon, Duerden (Woodbridge 66, Turner 108), Rice, Brownhill, Castle, Bone (Cassettari 93), Coyle. Unused subs: Mason, Mills.
Oxford Utd: Crocombe, Bevans, Long, Grant, Lynn, Rigg (Hackett 110), Rose, Meades, O’Dowda, Shama, Marsh.
Unused subs: Hill, Cundy, Calvin, Ingram.
