It's May's Day as Oxford retain Varsity

Events News - It's May's Day as Oxford retain Varsity - 24 Mar 2017 - Women's Football News
 
Oxford University won the Varsity match for the third year in a row when they defeated Cambridge University 3-1 at The Hive on Sunday.
 
Becca May was the heroine for her side as she notched a second half hat-trick to seal victory after a goalless first half in which the better of the opportunities went Cambridge's way.
 
Cambridge started the game brightly with Ceylon Hickman having a shot charged down and the Light Blues continued to enjoy the better of the early stages. Hickman was almost played in by a good cross from Katy Edwards and the same player also brought out a save from May Martin.
 
Cambridge were to go even closer when Xelia Mendes-Jones broke clear on goal with only Martin to beat but her curled effort struck the outside of the post.
 
The first half ended goalless but Oxford came out strongly at the start of the second half and this brought an early reward. Two minutes after the restart, Caroline Ward's pass released Becca May on goal and she planted her shot inside the far post to open the scoring.
 
Cambridge responded well to going behind and, when Gerda Bachrati whipped a free kick into the area, Hickman managed to direct a header goalwards and it bounced in off the post to level the scores.
 
Oxford had looked a different side in the second half though, and they were soon to get themselves back in front again. May got in behind the Cambridge defence from a long ball and unleashed a cross-shot which dipped over Laura Bleehan and into the back of the net to restore her side's lead.
 
Becca Hirst forced a save from Martin at the other end as Cambridge tried to get back into the game again but with five minutes remaining, Oxford sealed the game. May chased down a long ball forward and finished confidently to complete her hat-trick and seal a third successive triumph for Oxford in the annual fixture.
 
To complete a good day for Oxford University, the men's team also won their Varsity match, the 3-2 victory rounding off a double success.
