OKL Week 23 Report - 31/03/14

 This week there was just a couple of games left to tie up OKA division 1. First up Oxford City had a midweek game with Isis, they managed a win to secure 4th place ahead of their local rivals. That meant the last game of the league season would see newcomers Didcot face Oxford City in a critical match.

Didcot knew that only a win would be enough to avoid the playoffs and they managed to deliver just that. They came through a close game to grab the last 4 points they needed to draw level on points with Oxford Uni. According to the league rules it is the head to head that is the decider between the teams. The two games in question were both back in the first half of the season – first up it was a draw but in the second meeting Didcot won 10-5.  

Oxford Uni will therefore contest the playoff with Abingdon 2 (winner Div 2 N) and Farnborough (winner Div 2 S) on May 11th.

Provisional Results

Oxford City   11-8   Oxford Isis

Didcot   10-6   Oxford City

 

OKL Week 22 Report 24/03/14

This weekend saw an exciting climax to OKA division 1 with Abingdon and Basingstoke both vying for the title. After a tense showdown with both teams playing some excellent korfball, it was Basingstoke who won the match and they retain the league title for the 3rd successive year.

At the other end of the table, after Didcot lost to Basingstoke this weekend they will need a win in their final game against Oxford City to avoid the division 1 playoff. Finishing on equal points with Oxford Uni will be enough as team ranking  is decided by the head-to-head record before goal difference.

In division 2 (S) Southampton City secured 2nd place with victory against their second team and Woking 3 had a productive trip to Southampton with wins against Soton City 2 and Soton Uni 2.

Finally, in the regional league Southampton overtook Basingstoke to move into 2nd place with a win against Oxford United. Most teams have 1 or 2 games left to play and although leaders Bristol Thunder are well clear there is still potential for movement below them.

OKL Week 21 Report 18/03/14

Following the student nationals last weekend, this week was the club championships– a development event with mix of those that did not qualify for the nationals and 2nd teams from the bigger clubs. The Uni of East Anglia showed their dominance in the student game by repeating last weekend’s result and winning the event. From our area Reading finished in 11th with a good record of 4 wins, 2 draws and 1 loss. Southampton were also represented in the event.

A relatively quiet week in the OKA with just 1 game to report on as unfortunately Oxford City forfeited their match with Basingstoke due to injuries affecting player availability. At St Gregs, Southampton Uni convincingly beat Oxford Isis despite being a player short on the day.

Provisional Results

Oxford Isis   6-20   Southampton Uni

 

OKL Week 20 Report 11/03/14

We start this week with news of the main event in the student korfball calendar, the Student Nationals held in Norwich at the University of East Anglia. Many congratulations to Southampton who managed a fantastic 3rd place finish – in only their second appearance at the event. They narrowly missed out on the final  losing by a single goal in their semi-final against the hosts. They then secured the bronze medal with a win over last year’s runners up Nottingham. There was also recognition for Southampton’s Nikesh Patel who won Male MVP for the tournament (voted for by officials and refs). Oxford Uni struggled in a tough pool on day 1 and therefore just missed out on the top half of the draw for day two. The first knockout match was a repeat of last week’s varsity match and unfortunately the score line went in Cambridge’s favour again. They rounded off the tournament with a couple of good wins against St Andrews and Lancaster to finish in 13th place.

Back in the local league, Abingdon retake the top spot in division 1 with wins over Reading and Oxford Isis and Oxford City strengthen their 4th place with a win over Isis who are in 5th.

Congratulations to Farnborough Jets 1 who got the win they needed this weekend to secure the division 2 (S) league title and win a place in the playoffs for promotion to division 1.  Southampton City 1 also won their match this week and need to pick up at least 3 points in their remaining 2 games to overtake Basingstoke 2 and secure 2nd place.

OKL Week 19 Report - 02/03/14

This week saw an unfortunate lack of regional league action as both Cardiff City and Cardiff Dragons forfeitted matches against Southampton and Oxford United respectively.

Oxford Uni had their annual varsity match – hosting old rivals Cambridge Uni in a bid to try and retain the trophy they won last year. Unfortunately after a very close game they lost by a single goal, the exact same margin by which they won the fixture last year. They will have their chance for revenge next week at the Student nationals.

In division 1 there were 2 games, Abingdon maintain the pressure on league leaders Basingstoke with a win against Southampton Uni and Oxford City will move up to 4th with their win over Reading. In division 2 (S) Farnborough could not grab the points they needed to secure the league title as they lost out to Woking 3.    

Provisional Results

OKA Division 1

Oxford City   15-4   Reading

Southampton Uni   8-12   Abingdon

OKA Division 2 (S)

Farnborough 1   13-21   Woking 3

Varsity Match
