Ngongotaha 0, Plains Rangers 3

Ben McPherson lines up a free kick. The wall height looks rather uneven! Andy Brabant competes in the midfield battle, against one of Ngongy's more experienced campaigners.
Ben squares the ball across goal, just as coach Richie wanted. Jimmy, Hone and Jaiden are all running into the box. Unfortunately the home team defenders are onto it, this time! Jordan Ogilvy won a lot of headers in the first half, and made some great interceptions. James Hart looks on admiringly.
Jaiden Ibbetson was player of the day. He gave his defender a hard time all game! The keeper pulled off some very good saves. Here he had just dived at Jaiden's feet.
John 'Hone' Stephen finds a bit of space. He did well threading some good passes for the players around him. John keeps an eye on Ngongy's well performed centre back.
Jaiden on the charge once again. Jaiden looks up to find the strikers.
Into the second half, here's Aaron Wood crossing the ball in from the right wing. Ben McPherson also attacks down the right.
Even right full back Kirk Bain gets in on the act. He made a couple of good scoring chances too. Drat that keeper! Two late subs in the action, Dylan 'Skinsy' Arthur and Kyle Knight combine down the right flank.
Rangers player coach Richie Nillesen is thwarted by the Ngongotaha keeper this time. Richie did put away our third goal though.
