Caversham United 5-0 Carterton
The Goats recorded their first league win since beating Kidlington in late October, with a five goal haul despite having both top scorers, Freya Jenkins and Sumayah Zayadi, missing. Caitlin Levy opened the scoring with a screamer. Chante Bynoe-Gittins and and OG gave Caversham a three goal lead at the break. They added two more from Emma Hopkins and Annabelle Baxter, despite a much more spirited second 45 from the visitors. Carterton offered their usual performance, full of spirit and resolve, but failed to give Sam Thoreau too much trouble. Both BaseofthePyramid and WanderinTractor were at the game and produced match reports.
Eversley & California 0-1 Long Crendon
The draw specialists went one better at the weekend. Long Crendon have drawn over 50% of their matches this seaosn but an Emma Leith goal was enough to give them all three points at Fox Lane. Oddly, depsite their mid-table position, Crendon have yet to win a game at home. Eversley still have five remainign league matches plus a cup encounter with Premier league high-flyers Ascot United on their agenda.
Milton United 4-0 Kidlington
United kept up their part of the bargain in the title race with a comprehensive victory over Kidlington. Millton were without top-scorer Charlotte Comley but a brace from Jessica Simons, plus goals from April England and Natalie Evans saw them keep up the pressure ahead of next weekend's head to head with Woodley.
Penn & Tylers Green 1-2 Woodley United
Penn managed to do something that no other team had managed in over 12 hours of football, score a goal. It was always going to take something special to break them down and Henna Hussain (click on Henna's name to link to the video on Twitter) provided just that. Well worth a view on the Penn twitter feed. Despite the goal, and leading at the break, Woodley found a way to claim all three points. Ellen Surtees equalised with a worldie of her own before Charley Evans snatched the victory in added time. All of the action was, once again, perfectly captured by Andrew Batt (@andrewbatt5) and Oakmist Photography (@oakmistphotos). You can also read the Woodley United report on their website.

Eversley & California v Caversham United
This will be the third meeting of the teams this season. Eversley won an early season FA Cup encounter at Mapeldurham 3-1 with goals from Jo Harfield, Rebekah Pantony and Lilly-May Varney. Sumayah Zayadi briefly evened the scores for the Goats midway through the second half. The league encounter ended all square.

Long Crendon v Kidlington
The early season game between these teams fell in the middle of Kidlington's four game unbeaten start and ended 0-0. Kidlington have struggled to recapture that opening form and Long Crendon have yet to win at home. You would not bet against this one ending level as well.

Milton United v Woodley United
It's hard to state the importance of this game. A clash between the top two. A point between them in Woodley's favour but Milton are still the only unbeaten side in the league. Then add into the mix that Milton are the only team to inflict league defeat on Woodley this season and you have the makings of an absolute belter. When they met at Bulmershe in October they produced a superb rollercoaster of a match. If Sunday is similar the spectator are in for a treat.
