THERE were wild celebrations after Windsor ladies second team won their final game of the season to clinch a first league title in almost 20 years.

The 2-0 home victory against a resilient Oxford 6s side ensured the already promoted team go up as champions of Trysports Division Four.

Oxford put Windsor through the mill with the hosts starting nervously and making unforced errors as the pressure of the must-win game began to show.

With second-placed Sonning 4s breathing down their necks and only goal difference separating the teams, the hosts knew dropped points would hand the crown to their title rivals.

The game was at a stalemate at half-time and, with points in danger of slipping away, a rallying call from captain, Tasha Bailey, focused minds and revived their desire to win.

Windsor were ahead within minutes of the restart when a slick short corner routine was finished by Dana Faulkner, who beat the keeper with a deft flick of her stick.

Oxford refused to roll over and responded well with a breakaway move that saw a forward make a beeline for goal.

Keeper Ruki Sayid was untested so far but raced off her line to clear the danger and extend her run of clean sheets to four.

Lucy Smith calmed frazzled nerves with 10 minutes left on the clock as she pounced on a rebound from an Emma Thatcher shot to smash the ball home, sparking jubilation on the pitch and sidelines.

The ladies first team racked up their best win of the season in a 7-1 drubbing of Abingdon on Saturday.

Windsor were five goals ahead at half-time in an extravaganza led by hat-trick hero Clare McKinnel.

Maxine Bonnage opened the scoring with a clinical finish from a short corner.

Player-of-the-match McKinnel however stole the shot with a dazzling performance topped by the goal of the game.

Unchallenged in the D and with just the keeper to beat, she cheekily flicked the ball over the goalie after she went to ground.

Mel Dobson bagged a brace and Elle Gatehouse also scored in the game where the whistle could not come soon enough for Abingdon despite a consolation effort.

Windsor, lying in third position in Division One, have a rearranged game this Saturday against Oxford University 3s.

The men’s first team ended the season in style with a 6-3 away win against Oxford Hawks 4s.

A brace each for Jacob Harvey and Will McKegny, plus goals from Frank Schuddemat and Pascal Van Huffel saw Windsor finish in third place in Middx, Berks, Bucks & Oxon Division Two, three points short of promotion.

The second team finished fourth in Division Five following a 2-1 home win against Marlow 4s thanks to a brace from Paul Hayes.

The third team dropped points at home to Oxford 5s in a 5-2 defeat to end the season above rivals Slough Swifts and a point clear of the relegation zone.
