1st XI return to winning ways in bitty goalfest

23 Feb 2013

The OHAFC 1st XI returned to winning ways on Saturday with a 5-4 victory at home to Chigwell, in a game that was notable for the number of interventions of the referee's whistle.

The home side, missing a number of regulars, were in control for the majority of the match and led 3-1 at the break, before opening up a three-goal cushion at 5-2 with twenty minutes remaining.

Two late Chigwell strikes, courtesy of some less than convincing Harrow defending, made the closing stages more interesting than they should have been.

The highlight of the afternoon was a magnificent 30-yard strike from skipper Ed Martins, who cut in from the left wing and drilled a 30-yard shot into the far corner to make the score 4-2.

The win ensures Harrow should finish in a comfortable mid-table position in the League, with six games left to play. A full match report plus lineup and stats can be found in the Results section now.
