Offwell Rangers Res 2, Pinhoe Res 2

Rangers took to the pitch for the first tie in their new kit sponsored by the Windmill garage.

From the first whistle this was a well-contested match.

Offwell opened the scoring with a superb strike from Dan Taylor.

Pinhoe responded well and only a couple of wonderful saves, one from one of his own players, by Rangers keeper Dan Tompkinson, kept the home lead intact.

A cross from James Henley led to Timmy Huxley doubling the lead, but just before the break the visitors halved the deficit.

The second half saw the Rangers back four equal to the best the visitors could muster until what proved to be the final kick of the game following a corner which left Rangers having to settle for a point.

Match day sponsors Windmill Garage awarded the Man of the Match award to James Henley who worked tirelessly in midfield.
