In a forgettable performance, Plains Rangers could not capitalise on having a good share of possession against Rotorua Suburbs.
Rangers played into a stiff breeze in the first half, and held the home team out for thirty minutes. Suburbs opened the scoring when a long ball across goal found a striker with plenty of space to slot the ball home. Rangers came close to equalising when Aaron Muggeridge was put through on goal, but his shot was saved.
In the second half, Suburbs made the most of their chances to shoot out to a three goal lead. Rangers couldn't get their passing game going, and wasted scoring chances by shooting from long range. The final score Rotorua Suburbs 3, Plains Rangers 0.
Captain Jason Pullar was named player of the day for his efforts in defence. This coming Saturday, Rangers will have to improve their form when they host the winners of the Eastern qualifying group Rotorua Boys High School.
