Plains Rangers v Opotiki

Friendly, wearing new strip, 28 June 2015

Sporting their new colours.... black tops with green and orange highlights, Rangers had a bright afternoon. Young striker Cassidy Spillman was a star, getting the crowd excited with some good runs. Chris Butler, resplendent in a Diego Costa shirt, took on the refereeing job well.
Macca Mathis lines up a free kick. Jo Ingle was safe in goal.
Julie Reihana hasn't been on the pitch for a couple of months, but she got stuck in. Mishka Barry hasn't been playing since last year, but her good ball skills made her dangerous. She linked up very well with Cassidy.
On the sideline, Shayna Penberth models the new strip. Very nice! Radhika wins a defensive header.
Macca plays another ball forward from the midfield. Mishka's dribbling skills have her opponents and the spectators watching closely!
The Opotiki defender shields her keeper from Cassidy's attentions. The keeper just got there ahead of Ranee Whiting, having a run in the midfield in the second half, after a run up front in the first half! Go Ranee!
Mishka cuts back to wrong foot the Opo defence. Ranee wins the ball ahead of her midfield opponent and Radhika.
Shayna got on for a run late in the game. She showed some speed too. Game over, a win for Opotiki 4 - 0, but more of a win for the new strip, a beautiful day and some nice football.
