Chaffey Double Sinks Witchampton

Okeford got off to a fast start in the Senior League game against Witchampton United.  The visitors, who were trying to avenge a two nil defeat from the first time the sides met, found themselves a goal down after just 15 seconds.  Witchampton kicked off, with the ball going back to the centre midfielder.  Olly Chaffey nicked the ball and stormed straight through the middle of the defence, before slotting the ball past the keeper.

It was only 10 minutes later that the lead was doubled.  Matt Jordan beat his man by the left corner, and drove along the by-line towards goal.  He then picked out the advancing Chaffey, who doubled his, and Okeford’s lead.

The second goal seemed to wake up Witchampton, and the rest of the half played out fairly evenly.  The visitors created a couple of good chances on corners.

As the second half progressed, Witchampton got stronger, putting a lot of pressure on to the Okeford defence.  However, it was not to be breached, as an excellent defensive performance from the whole team ensured that they would keep a clean sheet, and complete the double over the Witches.
