CHELMSFORD | The only thing sloppier than the field at the end of the game was Methuen's offense during it.

The injury-riddled Rangers only picked up 53 yards of water-logged offense, 47 of that on one long run from Mike Bartlett, as the MVC-leading Chelmsford Lions rolled to a 28-0 win.

The Rangers' lack of depth, especially on offense, was apparent from the outset. Methuen was limited to 13 yards on the ground and none in the air in the first half.

However, the defense, led by linebacker Justin Marsan and lineman Joey Tomacchio, stood tall early on.

It held Chelmsford, which usually puts up big points in the first quarter, to three-and-outs on its first two possessions and just seven points in the first 18 minutes.

The Rangers also had the Lions pinned to a 4th-and-7 before a long pass from Tim Rich to Nick Emanouil set up the first score of the game.

In fact, none of the four Chelmsford scores were set up by long marches, but rather one quick play for big yards.
