Kick Start 14.01.14

The football season kicked off on the first Saturday of the Spring Term with 1st and 2nd XI matches against Oakham School.  The 1stXI had the better of the opening half, but some careless marking just before and after the break saw the visitors go ahead 2 – 0 before Loughborough deservedly narrowed the margin with a goal from Alex Koerble.  Continued pressure nearly brought the scores level, but an Oakham  breakaway goal late on resulted in a final 3 – 1 scoreline.  The 2nd XI drew a hard-fought encounter 2 – 2.
