Frustrating Finish For Young Jets
Oxhey Jets 2 Spelthorne Sports 3
Cherry Red Combined Counties North Premier
31st January 2023
In an even end to end match Jets went behind to an early penalty but equalised through an own goal header from a fierce Jets cross from a free-kick out wide.
Jets looked to push on but went behind again as the defence switched off enabling a Spelthorne attacker to run through defenders and slot home. HT 1-2
A positive start to the second half showed Jets working hard to level. The breakthrough came with a superb free-kick from Dan Naylor, a candidate for Jets goal of the season, making it 2-2.
With Jets on the front foot the Spelthorne defence looked fragile and when Spelthorne defender Jack Buckle picked up a second yellow it looked a great opportunity for Jets to win the game.
Unfortunately, Jets could not find a way through, and in some ways being forced to play on the counter to their fast forwards seemed to suit Spelthorne more. Then in added time Jets allowed a Spelthorne attacker to turn and shoot and the game was lost . FT 2-3.
