Plains Rangers men 2 Taupo Lakers 3

It was great to have Christian Wetting back between the sticks again. Wett became our seventh different keeper of the season! He was soon under pressure as Rangers made another slow start. The game quiickly developed into an entertaining tussle though. The Taupo captain gives a back pass under pressure back to his keeper.
John Stephen knows his football. He did well to construct from the midfield. Rangers captain Ben McPherson puts a pass for Hamish Wilde to run onto.
Grahame Sims plays the ball out from the back. Hamish sees an attempt go narrowly over the bar.
Patrick Lambert shields the ball from a Taupo player. A well struck shot from a free kick gets palmed onto the bar by Wett, but a Taupo player reacted quickly to follow up and score.
Hamish scores! A great header from a corner. Everyone can only watch as the ball sails into the net.
Matt Dalgity congratulates Hamish as they run back for the restart. Here's Matt holding the ball up.
Hamish puts a ball across for left winger Jacob Heath. Joel Ogilvy, as always, works hard in the midfield. The marking is pretty tight.
Taupo defender Menzos (spelling?) heads the ball strongly away from goal. Matt looks like he's glad he didn't try and compete!
