A Luke Smith hat-trick saw Bicester M1s rout Oxford IIIs 4-1 to move up to third in MBBO Division One.

Things had started disastrously for Bicester when the visitors scored one of the quickest goals ever seen at Cooper School to take the lead inside 20 seconds.

Bicester remained composed, though, and proceeded to dominate with Smith (pictured) equalising midway through the first half before the same man put the hosts in front following good work from CJ Birtles.

Birtles himself then added a third on the stroke of half time, and Bicester sealed the win after the break thanks to Smith’s third.
