London GD Scrape Past Oxford

NINE goals from Olschleger helped London GD scrape past Oxford University 32-28 after a close and thrilling match at Leyton SCORE Centre in London on Sunday.

The reigning league champions were only 15-13 ahead at half time, and they continued to have a real fight on their hands against Oxford, for whom Abdulla Alshamuari was top-scorer with eight goals.

In the day’s other match, Ruislip Eagles secured a convincing 38-21 win over Bath University, with nine goals from Azzedine Messis helping them to victory.

For Bath, Jeremy Hamelin scored ten goals, but it was not enough to stop the Eagles.

And in the women’s National Division, Ruislip Eagles secured a 21-16 victory over Thames with their GB player Dani Sposi scoring eight goals and Kerstin Pappenfuss seven.

* In the Men’s Northern Division, Liverpool Speke Garston lost out 29-20 to newcomers Leeds Hornets.

The inexperienced new Speke Garston team struggled in the opening 10 minutes of their clash, conceding six goals without reply due to poor handling and shooting.

Despite creating clear opening scoring opportunities they were denied by the outstanding Leeds goalkeeper Narel who made successive saves from point blank range to deny the Liverpool team throughout the first half, Leeds leading 17-6 at the break.

Regrouping at half time, Liverpool Speke Garston came out of the blocks on fire, rattling in five goals without reply which stunned the Leeds team and closed the goal difference to six in this purple patch which lasted for fifteen minutes.

However, a string of six consecutive missed fast break chances went begging as they failed to score against the Leeds goalkeeper who was the outstanding player of the match and with each missed shot Leeds clinical shooting enabled them to pull away finishing with a score of 29 -20 to Leeds.
