Saturday 27th February Rangers v Stonesfield

Macdonogh blazes Peno As Rangers Settle For Point

Saturday 27th February Rangers v Stonesfield – Match report by Jonny Dover & Jamie MacDonogh

Rangers were able to get the better of their opponent’s last time out with a tightly contested 1-0 win and another tight game was expected. With Stonesfield gaining an important 3 points against title chasing Kirtlington last time out, Rangers knew this was going to a difficult game.

The game started with Rangers dominating possession, playing through their midfield three of Johnson, T.Hall and skipper MacDonogh looking to get the ball forward and put the Stonesfield defence on the back foot from the off. With the Stonesfield defence standing firm and being very organised, chances were hard to come by.

The first chance of the game fall to Stonesfield as some smart play allowed the forward to find some space down the left and unleash a shot towards the far corner with only the fingertips of Floyd preventing a certain goal. Rangers first chance came on the half hour mark as a bouncing ball fall to Karim, with his close effort deflecting of the leg of the keeper for a corner.

The half pretty much stayed the same with Rangers having most possession and Stonesfield looking to counter at any chance, which is where their goal came from. A quick break which forced Joe Collet to put out for a throw in, the delivery was met by Adam Lee's head into the path of Evans Boland who's first time volley nestled in the top corner giving Daniel Floyd no chance of stopping it. 1-0 Stonesfield.

Second half, after a calm half time team talk from manager James Barker, was pretty much the same for Rangers, hogging possession also with the wind in their favour too, surely they would be able to get their equaliser soon.

And they didn’t have to wait long for their chance came, after Stonesfield captain decided to climb all over Adam Izzards back from a Rangers free kick, the ref had no choice but to give the hosts a penalty. Macdonogh stepped up calmly but blazed his effort over the cross bar, this seemed to deflate Rangers for the next 10 minutes.

After a mild 15 mins, Rangers were able to find some flow in their game and finally Rangers got their equaliser. Some good passing play down the left saw D.Hall in space, beat his man and cut the ball back. The ball found Macdonogh sat alone in Stonesfield penalty area who coolly guided the cut back towards the far post levelling things up. 1-1.

Rangers now with all the momentum made the decision to put Jonny Dover up top to try and snatch a winner. Straight away he was causing problems for the Stonesfield back 4. His speed, direct running and strength helped him to several half changes, which he unable to convert. He did however find his way into the refs book for a late lunge on the centre back.

Few chances fell to either side towards the end of the game but with Rangers pushing forward more, they left themselves exposed at the back. A long ball played for goal machine Penny saw him beat the offside trap. All he had to do was round the keeper and slide the ball into the empty net, but Floyd had other ideas. The keeper made himself big and was able to get a leg onto the goal bound effort.

A hard thought point which could come in handy at the end of the season with promotion still a possibility. 5 wins from their last 5 games will almost certainly see them go up and with a little help, maybe as champions. We now move on to the next game at home to North Leigh on the 12th March, with every game a must win, Rangers cannot afford to slip off the pace.
