Rangers v Whakatane
A lively nil all draw.

Man of the match Bas Overdevest clears the ball from the Rangers penalty area. Dan Logan takes on the Whakatane defence. Stephen Allerby watches closely.
One of a number of desperate tackles kept Rangers out. Here a defender gets a foot in before Dan can shoot. Whakatane sweeper Thomas Davison is pressured by Dean Butterworth and Dan Logan. Davison was instrumental in keeping Rangers scoreless.
JP climbs for a corner Rangers keeper Matt Aberhart collects the ball safely.
Matt Ward races through trying to catch up with an inviting cross. Quick Matt shoot. The keeper is distracted! Matt brings the ball out from defence. Bas is in support, as always!
It's tight in the midfield. JP is surrounded by his old team-mates. Muggsy is ready to receive the ball
Matt Ward gets his name in ref Greg Orr's book. "Honest ref, we're mates," explains Matt about his challenge on Sean Henderson. Shortly thereafter Muggsy gets spoken to. "Can I have your phone number son?"
Aaron Storey defends the left flank.
