Plains Rangers women v Taupo
Plains Rangers men hosted Whakatane Town on Saturday at the Edgecumbe Domain in BOP division one. The visitors got off to a flier. They had an early raid down the left wing leading to a cross which hung up in the breeze before finding its way to the far post, where it was duly put away. Whakatane's quick movement from the midfield caused Rangers difficulties and in the 20th minute they scored again, when a runner got through the defence. Three minutes later Rangers had their best moment of the half when Petir Gray weaved his way into the box, beating a trail of defenders, before hitting the side netting with his shot. On the half hour Whakatane scored after a good passing move and five minutes later Rangers didn't deal with a high bouncing ball and the visitors scored their fourth goal. At half time it was Plains Rangers 0, Whakatane 4.
