Chadlington First Team returned to league action on Saturday following their narrow defeat to Premier side Charlbury in the Fred Ford Cup last week.
They battled out a 2-2 draw with Stonesfield with Matt Chadwick scoring a brace to take his season tally to 5 goals.
While a draw was a fair reflection of the overall game, Chadlington will feel that they let 3 points slip as they had gone into the half time break 2-0 up.
Team: Bayliss, Webb (c), Walker T, Walker G, Hazlewood, Holland, Hughes, Taylor M, Morley, Chadwick, Woodward. Subs: Peachey, Scearce.
Chadlington Reserves were also looking to bounce back from a dissapointing defeat last week to Brize Norton Reserves in Division Four. They hosted Bampton United Reserves who sat slightly below them in the league table.
The game was even at the half time break at 0-0 as Chad weathered a long ball storm by Bampton well. The defensive back line was solid throughout, helped with the return of Freddie Magee for his first game of the season.
With a solid start to the game the idea was to start turning the tide in the second half and pile pressure on Bampton. However within minutes Chad found themselves behind when a Bampton corner was deflected into the goal by captain Jonnie Jeffcock.
The home side did not deserve this and pulled their sleeves up and started playing attacking football.
The equaliser came with a bang. Ollie Jordan broke down the right wing a drilled a low ball accross the box. Charlie White met the cross first time and thundered the ball past the Bampton keeper who simply did not have time to react. The speed and power of the counter attack was impressive.
With the score at 1-1 Chad needed another bit of magic and up stepped Matty Wezyk. He grabbed the winner with 15 minutes to go. This was his 5th goal in 4 games.
The win was highly deserved and gave Chad a massive boost after coming from behind. Now back to winning ways, the Reserves face Spartan Rangers 'A' next week.
Team: Betts, Jeffcock (c), Foster, Godin A, Magee, Taylor M, Hobden, Waller, Plumbridge, Jordan, White. Subs: Wezyk, Haynes, Wellstood.
