Offwell Rangers dominate against Chagford, but can’t find a goal

Offwell Rangers met Chagford for the second time in seven days.

Unlike the first meeting when Rangers won 5-2, and with something to spare, this time the game ended 0-0.

Chagford were much changed from the week before, but it did not prevent Rangers from upping their game to dominate the first half.

Rangers boss Scott Phillips said: “The half-time chat was the easiest I have had to do. We were very good in that first half. We completely dominated possession and had chance after chance, but failed to convert them.”

After the break there was more of the same, but once again, despite creating a number of good scoring opportunities Rangers could not find a finish. At the other end of the pitch such was the efficient job the defence did that Rangers glovesman Ben Kayes did not have a single save to make the entire game!”

Phillips said: “Defensively we were solid and had we been able to take just one of our chances we’d have got all three points. Picking a Man of the Match winner is difficult because, for my money, the whole team put in a super shift. It was the best team performance of the season so far.”
