Plains Rangers AFC

Kawerau Sports 5, Plains Rangers women 2

Plains Rangers men had their game at Rotorua, against Waiariki postponed on Saturday, due to covid concerns.
On Sunday Plains Rangers women travelled the short distance to Kawerau. The final result: a 5 – 2 win to Kawerau didn't reflect Rangers' efforts. The team held their positions really well and held possession through good passing. Player of the day Danielle Haldane was strong in defence. She was well backed up by Alex Bentley-Dalgity in the midfield, Rhylee Mahy in defence and Rachel Elliot and Julie Reihana on the wings. Mikaela Mathis and Stevie Clarke did well and scored the goals.
This weekend, Plains Rangers men are away against Papamoa Dou Bros and Rangers women are home against Te Puke.

Ranee's report:
Us VS KTown
2 - 5
Well ladies that was one hell of a game played by all. The score does not reflect how well we gelled as a team. A couple of their goals were just plain lucky, nothing we could do about them. We did some amazing passing of the ball, really making them work for it. Every one was holding their positions today, and we were going for the balls not just standing off and waiting for it to come to us. Good work on that ladies.
A big thank you to Katie, Nikki, Rachel Elliot, Mikaela Mathis and Stevie Clarke for playing today, big high fives to you. Alex Bentley-Dalgity you had an amazing game in the second half in the mids. You held that position well and did some awesome work. Rhylee Mahy man you had a cracker of a game, you did top effort work on your side. Rachel you had an amazing game on the wing. Julie Reihana what a little cracker you are. You were all over them, well done. Macca it was like you never left the team... awesome work in the mids and well done on the goal as well. Well done Stevie too for getting our second goal today. Congratulations to Danielle Haldane on getting player of the day. You held that position great and you stopped a lot of balls and players coming through. Great work today.
Once again ladies well done today top effort.
Catch ya all at training Wednesday night.
