Gary Fowell Builders Plains Rangers
April 8th 2006 v Old Blues
An amazingly quick start launched Gary Fowell Builders Plains Rangers
into the mood for an excellent first half against Old Blues in BOP div
three on Saturday. Rangers had the breeze behind them and within two minutes
had the lead. Simon Gowing got round his defender and was taken down in
the box. Captain Richie Nillesen converted the resulting penalty well.
Striker Aaron Muggeridge doubled the lead three minutes later, with a
high lob over the home team keeper, who injured himself trying to keep
it out. A few minutes later pressure down the left caused an Old Blues
defender to put the ball into his own net! Midway through the first half
Gowing latched onto a Jeremy Hawkes long throw and rounded the keeper
to score from an acute angle. Harley de Lacy added to Old Blues misery,
as did Nillesen with a calm left foot finish and Muggeridge after a 50
metre run. The half time score had Rangers leading 7 - 0, the result of
some cutting passing.
