St Hugh's 2, Somerville 3

A scrappy, hard-fought game was played out between the bottom two sides of the league. Somerville got out of the blocks the stronger, taking a comfortable 2-0 lead within the first thirty minutes. Hugh's did fight back, getting their first goal before the break through Adhip Rawal, and a second just after the interval through Ben Millette. Somerville's third, shortly after Hugh's equaliser, took the wind out of Hugh's sails and was enough to ensure Somerville's first 3 pointer of the season. Adhip Rawal



St Catz 5, Magdalen 2

Magdalen yesterday went down 5-2 to a strong Catz team, which is now a clear favourite for the title. Nonetheless, the match was closer than the scoreline suggests; Magdalen hit the post, had a header brilliantly cleared off the line, and had a re-taken penalty saved after initially having scored. Additionally, a goal was ruled out for a close offside. There were enough positives for Magdalen to be confident about putting a good run together this term, especially with the return of a couple of key players. Alex Canfor- Dumas


Merton/Manfield 4, Queen’s 0

Merton/Mansfield eventually romped to a 4-0 victory after being held to 0-0 by a resiliant Queens defence until half time. A brace by Sam Williams and another from top scorer Robbie Coleman saw them shoot back to the top of the table. Reuben Holt
