Chadlington Reserves collected their second win of 2019 with a 1-0 win over bottom side Ascott Rangers on Saturday.
It was a convincing victory and Chadlington dominated the game from start to finish but somehow only one goal was scored. That came after just 15 minutes when a spell of pressure forced the Ascott keeper to drop the ball at the feet of 16 year old Ollie Wellstood to tap in.
From then on it looked like Chad were going to score at every attack. However a combination of blocks and last ditch defending meant that it was a frustrating afternoon.
While the score remained at just 1-0 there was also the prospect of conceeding through a moment of lost concentration or through a mistake. Chadlingtons defence though held solid and collected their 4th clean sheet of the season and which reconfirmed them being the best unit in the league.
The 3 points gained were the most important thing though as others at the top of the league dropped points. The win moves Chad up to 4th in the league with games in hand.
Team: Betts, Godin A, Tinkham, Foster, Mulhearn (c), Hobden, Wellstood, Taylor M, Jordan, White, Godin E. Subs: Watson, Hannington, Jeffcock.
