Plains Rangers 1 Taupo 2

2 July 2011

Tom Davison leads the Rangers boys through the warm up. Tom, Jeff and Richie keep in line. Wett knows this stretch looks silly, but it has to be done!
Captain Richie Nillesen watches a shot head goalward. Christian Wetting heads over the bar.
Richie and Ben McPherson line up a free kick. Ben delivered and Wett headed it in. Wett in action, out jumping their player of the day and another defender.
Richie pleads with the Taupo keeper "couldn't you just let it go in?" The Taupo defence watch another desperately close shave.
Tom turns away as another attack is thwarted. Tom takes no prisoners, well not this one anyway.
Taupo clear the ball. Rangers player of the day Ben Fretwell is waiting by Paul Inglis to mop this up. Ben McPherson on the attack.
Richie administers the magic water to ref Gordon Campbell. "Now, ref, about that yellow card..."
