Plains Rangers 1, Rotorua United Blue 2

It was a tightly contested game! Here are Rangers on attack. Brandon Collier takes his man on down the right wing.
Jason Pullar wins yet another header at a corner. Bazza and Jordan are alert to getting on the end of it, which Jordan did for Rangers' goal. Meanwhile, back in the defence, keeper Chris Johnston takes a high ball comfortably.
Jordan Ogilvy races down the left wing. He has Bazza in support. JP controls the ball in midfield, while Jordan makes the run in behind.
Here are Kirk Bain and Jono Whitaker working hard in defence. JP finds himself surrounded by three defenders.
The dry dusty uneven Awakeri pitch meant it was hard for both teams to control the ball. Here's Kirk doing the job properly. Up front Barrie Hawkes gets off the ground, but the defender shows amazing spring!
We're in the second half, a Rotorua corner and everyone works hard to spot the ball against the strong sunlight.

Kirk, playing sweeper, chests the ball down before clearing it.

Many thanks to Stewart Sutton for this set of photos.
