Kidlington FC 1 Binfield FC 8
September 10, 2012
Despite putting up valiant resistance for 55 minutes, Kidlington crumbled to a heavy defeat at the hands of in-form Binfield in the Hellenic Premier Division on Saturday as all three of the Moles front men got on the scoresheet.
Leading 1-0 at half-time, Binfield were devastating in front of goal in the second half, running in seven goals to secure an easy win.
With an unchanged side for the third successive game, Mark Tallentire's side were quickly into their stride and took the lead in the 13th minute as Jos Millar latched onto Danny Wing's perfect through ball, beat two defenders and found the bottom corner with his left-foot drive.
Jemel Johnson, Carl Withers and Carl Davies all went close to doubling the lead, while Ryan Millward's brilliant diving header that clearly crossed the line was disallowed.
The Moles continued in the same vein in the second half as Withers' header only just cleared the bar, before a long ball forward almost caught the Moles napping as a good Dan Weait save from Sam Fincher's dipping volley kept the Moles in front.
Johnson ended the match as a contest on 55 minutes when he beat the offside trap and side footed past Dixon to make the lead comfortable.
Wing pressed forward from left-back to help make it three soon after, exchanging a one-two on the edge of the area with Carl Davies before pulling the ball back for Millar to tap in his second.
Sub Callum Whitty's through ball to Carl Davies set the Moles striker up to curl in for 4-0, then a minute later it was five when Wing again got forward and pulled back for the simplest of goals for Garry Sargeant.
Millar completed his hat-trick as he beat Dixon to a bouncing ball, then with eight minutes to go Sargeant was on hand again to make it seven when Ben Strugess' shot was parried by Dixon.
Bradley Ormand ran from the halfway line and hit a peach of a left foot shot into the top corner for Kidlington's consolation, but the Moles had the last word when Havermans added the eighth shortly before the final whistle.
Binfield's third win on the trot lifted them to eighth, but the defence of their AM Print and Copy Floodlit Cup is next on the agenda as they travel to Maidenhead United Res on Tuesday (7.45pm kick-off).
