Tom Davison puts through a great pass for Ben McPherson to run onto.
Here's Tom trying to block a clearance from the Whakatane defence. Carwyn Evans climbs all over Rangers midfielder Christian Wetting to try and get in a header.
A second half Richie ORegan header at goal. Rangers keeper Adam Mayor has it covered. Now it's the curtain raiser. Rangers left wing Hayley Warner sets off on a run.
Left back Donna Bain works hard to keep her opponent out. Hayley is on the charge again.
Jess Bailley impressed with her speed up front. Here she is waiting to receive the ball. Defender Kayla Benner was a picture of determination in her play.
Kelly Wilson shows dangerous attacker Naomi Courtney Tennent the line. Kylie Keys does her bit in defence too.
Although 9 - 0 sounds like it was one way traffic, Rangers actually had quite a few attacks. Hayley has run into the box on this one. Emma Collicott is lurking hopefully for the cross.
On this raid, Hayley hit a powerful shot into the side netting.
Action from the midfield. Renee and Annie played some good football.
