Plains Rangers 1 Otumoetai 1 (penalties 1 - 3)

Ben McPherson with a great chance in the first half. Ben hits the crossbar. Now he'll be thinking, why didn't I draw the keeper and square it to Jimmy!
Ben again, challenging the Otumoetai keeper for the ball Jimmy Krause takes on the defence.
Now we're in the second half, Ben Fretwell gets up on attack. He's crossing the ball fro the right wing, not bad for a centre back! Another corner, John Stephen gets a header with the keeper out and nowhere. Over the top!
Extra time, second half.... Goal!!! Congratulations all round as Jaiden sets up Ben. The Otumoetai players are shattered....
But... they get up and win a damned penalty to force the penalty shoot out.
