Canterbury faced off against Oxted hoping that they could cause an upset against the league leaders and continue their winning streak in front of the Polo faithful.
Oxted showed why they are top and started strongly and scoring the opening goal. Canterbury fought back and both Will Mead bursting through and Callum Brown-Lea with a diving deflection had half chances but couldn’t find the equaliser. Oxted kept pushing and drew some good save from Cade but unfortunately he was beaten by a well worked goal seeing the visitors 2-0 at half time.
In the 2nd half Canterbury came back out fighting refusing to give up on the winning run, forcing some good saves from the Oxted GK before were rewarded when Craig Boyne converted from a PC. Now with a taste for goals from PC’s, Craig then added a 2nd goal from the 2nd time of asking, this one going top bins. With the crowd sensing the 3pts were there to be taken and offering the encouragement to go with it, a break down the right lead to another PC which Craig slotted home for his hatrick and a 3-2 lead. Canterbury then dug deep and defended well and held on to the final whistle to take all 3pts and keep the streak alive.
