Two wins for Oxford Ladies!

Today on International Women's Day, the NVL girls went to Dartford and won both games.  With 37 points they are again on top of the league. Well done girls!

In the first game, Oxford played against Dartford Ladies. Dartford put up a strong fight, and with the game's ups and downs it was good to see that the Oxford Ladies were able to focus to win the match 3:0. Everyone played very well, but Marta with her injury put in an exceptional shift.

The second game was against Northampton (third in the league). This was also a very tricky tie. Northampton Ladies' players were very good, well organised and picking up everything that came over the net. Their serves were consistently targeting empty spots. On the other side, Oxford Ladies were trying to find a way to break their opponents down. And they succeeded in the end. Just when it seemed Oxford were going to lose a set they came back, pulling a couple of tricks out of their sleeves. By winning these two games NVL Oxford ladies are almost through to the next level (NVL second division). With only one game left, in two weeks time against Peterborough Harriers Ladies, if Oxford can win that, they are up!
