In the second half, Te Puke came back well and put a lot of pressure on the Rangers defence. Jacob Heath shields the ball back to the keeper. Kirk Bain looks for support as he is backed up against his own goal line.
There were some tough challenges, but the game was played in good spirit. Ali, Wett and Kirk combine to win the ball. Young Tiemen Corporaal had a good game in the midfield.
