Plains Rangers 3 Rotorua United 1.

Yes there are more injured on the sideline than out on the pitch! Here are Josh Hyndman (back to camera, as usual) - broken ankle, Jeremy Hawkes - broken knee, and Ben McPherson - badly sprained ankle. Ben has been playing for Whakatane this year, but came along to watch his old team win. Spectators Lucy, Jeremy and Josh enjoy the battle.
Caleb Hyndman lays the ball back for Bas Overdevest. Caleb has another 'aaarghhh that was close' moment!! The Rotorua keeper has made another stop.
Right winger Dean Butterworth cuts inside. Two goal scorer James Mitchell brings the ball down. Harley and Skins keep an eye on him from the sideline.
James looks up, and sees the keeper off his line. Will he shoot or cross to Caleb? Jono Whitaker passes the ball in to Richie Nillesen. Jono had another good game in defence. He also got a yellow card.
Richie lines up a long shot.
