FOOTBALL: Lacklustre Launton made to pay by Irish
11:00am Thursday 13th September 2012 in Sport
Launton Sport twice threw away the lead as they were held to a 2-2 draw by Oxford Irish in the Oxfordshire Senior League Premier Division on Saturday.
Launton went ahead when Paul Lisseter headed Jonny Moore’s free-kick over the stranded keeper.
However, the hosts suffered a setback when Ben Miles went off injured with a badly lacerated ear after a collision with the Irish keeper.
After the break, Nicky McMahon levelled from close range after Launton keeper James Lisseter had parried a goal-bound effort.
Nicky Baldock then res-tored Launton’s advantage after Mark Scanes’s free-kick hit a post.
Launton then spurned several chances to extend their lead and paid the price when McMahon completed his double to seal a share of the spoils.
Chris Davies, Alex Wood-fine and Matt Keeble notched doubles as Oakley United crushed North Oxford 9-1.
Lee Parrack, Lenny Sackey and an own goal completed their tally, with Max Palmer replying for the visitors. Scott Finch and Tristan Salt hit trebles in Middleton Cheney Res’ 8-1 thrashing of visitors Launton Sports Res in Division 2.
Josh Hart and Andrew Boyles got their other goals, with Matthew Hunt replying for Launton.
