Oxhey Jets soar after goal-feast
12:50pm Thursday 20th December 2012 in Sport
Oxhey Jets celebrated being named team of the month for the second time in a row by thrashing Broxbourne Borough 6-1 in the Floodlit Cup second round on Tuesday.
The win following a 7-0 drubbing of Hertford Town in the Premier Division which took the side's tally to 121 competitive goals for the season and 13 in four days this week.
Manager Benny Higham named a strong side for the midweek match and Ian Bywater gave them an early lead when he dived in to head home the opener.
The hosts doubled their lead after 15 minutes when Lee Inch marked his first start following a long injury layoff by slotting in the second.
The Jets made it 3-0 before the break when a keeper's error enabled Steve Brown to find the net.
Lewis Putman went clear and rounded the keeper to score the fourth goal shortly after the restart. The visitors had their best spell of the game and deservedly pulled one back but Brown headed home his second to make it 5-1. Inch's superb 25-yard strike completed the scoring to send the Jets through to the semi-final of the competition.
Oxhey were in prolific form at the weekend as they put seven past hosts Hertford.
Gavin Hart scored the first goal after just eight minutes of the contest. Putman notched his first of the game from the penalty spot and he went on to score four goals for the Jets in the game.
Brown was also on target in the second half while Warren Gladdy netted the final goal in injury time.
Oxhey travel to Hadley this weekend in the league.
Kings Langley won 3-1 at New Bradwell St Peter in Division One.
The visitors went ahead from a Jimmy Armstrong penalty given for handball. A familiar defensive lapse saw a free-kick by Kyle McNulty elude everyone for the equaliser.
Kings hit back with the move of the match as Nathan Pooley's first time pass set Tom Carter free down the left and his cross gace Armstrong time to pick his spot.
The second half was short on quality but Kings Langley sealed the win late on when Craig Lynskey netted from close range.
Sun Postal Sports lost 5-2 at home to Codicote.
Ashley Lewis and Sam Clark found the net for the hosts but five goals from Craig Arnott send the hosts to defeat.
