FT – Oxfordshire Cup QF – Thame United 2 – 1 Horspath
Thame United – Sturgess 16, Peake-Pijnen (pen) 65
Horspath – Reid 18
Thame United took to the field to play against Oxfordshire Premier side Horspath FC for this fixture.
The Red Kites progress to the Semi Finals so will watch the Cup Draw with anticipation.
This victory keeps the good run going and ‘The Kites Nest’ is quickly becoming a tough place for away sides to come and play.
Sturgess opened the scoring on 16 minutes when Davies delivered a cross and the skipper produced a sublime header.
Horspath responded when Reid struck a wicked shot from outside the box to beat Timberlake on 18 minutes.
Horspath played deeper in the second half with just one up top. The game changed when Watts handled the ball on the line in the second half. This meant Peake-Pijnen stepped up and slotted the penalty kick into the net to give Thame the lead.
Thame created chance after chance in the second half but somehow this only ended 2-1.
Horspath battled until the very end. It was all Thame second half and Walker made some class saves throughout the match to keep Horspath in it.
Thame were unfortunate to have Davies and captain Sturgess go off to injury.
