Offwell Rangers Reserves edged out at Colyton

PUBLISHED: 13:33 06 April 2011

OFFWELL Rangers Reserves travelled to Colyton where they were eventually edged out by the odd goal in five.

The hosts struck first with what proved to be the only goal of the first half.

Shortly after the re-start Dan Edwards scored a superb leveller but the home side struck back and took the lead for the second time.

It got worse for the visitors when the ball brushed the arm of an Offwell defender who looked to be trying to shield the ball and the resultant penalty was slotted to give Colyton a 3-1 lead.

Offwell refused to conceded the game though and were deservedly back in the contest with Evan Carnelly’s late goal.

The Offwell Man of the match was Dan Hayden.
