Rangers Hit 4 In Second Half

Rangers survive first half scare

Rangers went into the game off the back of successive defeats for the first time this season. Losses to KEA and Eynsham either side of Christmas had seen them knocked out of the Junior Shield and fall back in the league. Having already beaten Chadlington twice this season, Rangers were in a confident mood to get their promotion hopes back on track.

The game started quickly with Rangers moving the ball well without creating anything and Chadlington looking dangerous getting the ball into the strikers often. With Rangers struggling in the final third, Chadlington were showing the hosts how to do it by carving out many shooting chances, the best of which fell to Hunt as a static Rangers defence allowed him to latch onto a ball over the top which bounced kindly for the lob which was put over the bar.

If the previous chance wasn't a warning to Rangers, the next chance was. A good through ball wasn’t dealt with by the Rangers centre half and the ball fall to White who made no mistake this time, a well hit shot beat to keeper at the near post. Chad were able to create a couple more chance before making it 2 on the half hour mark. A ball whipped in from the right fall at the feet of Hunt who beat his man and struck the ball past the keeper to make it 2-0.

Soon after going 2 up, Chad had another great chance as a long ball into the box was met with a strong header into the bottom corner. As the player started to wheel away in celebration, Dover pulled off an excellent reaction save to claw the ball off the line and the full back clearing it to safety. This woke Rangers up a little as they then created their best chance of the half with a brilliantly timed through ball for the striker to run onto, however the keeper saved well in a one on one situation.

Half time 0-2 Chad.

Who knows what was said at half time by manager Barker, but Rangers came out in the second half determined to put the first half right. Within 2 minutes they were back in the game as a Matt Lee cross missed everyone apart from Pearce at the back post who sliced the ball pasted the keeper! And within 5 minutes of the break, Rangers drew level as Macdonogh was allowed to bring the ball down in the box and play a one two with Izzard and then shank the ball into the top of the net. 2 soon became 3 and Rangers had completely turned the game on its head with 3 goals in 7 minutes. A free kick just inside the Chad half was booted up field, Macdonogh stuck a foot out and helped the ball over the defender with Adam Lee making the run in behind to casually put the ball past the on rushing keeper.

The game levelled out from here with Chad battling to find a way back into the match. With 25 minutes left Macdonogh had a great chance to put the game past Chad as he went through on goal with just the keeper to beat. Having ran around the ball 3 times to get it onto his favoured right foot, before chipping the ball straight at the keeper who made an easy save.

Moving into the last 10 minutes with Chad giving their all to find a goal, it was the hosts who were able to break away and score the decisive 6th. A good long ball into the box found its way to the back post where it was helped back into the middle for Evans (Clarky) to score his first of the season.

There was still time for some late drama as a long throw in from Chad was met by their 12ft tall centre mid who slotted the ball into the bottom corner only for the refs whistle to go, he was judged to have fouled the Rangers player when winning the ball.

Full time 4-2 Rangers
