The Sydney Rangers A team played their sixth game of the season on May 5, battling Marrickville at Easton Park, Rozelle.

Both teams had moments of control in the first half, but often the Rangers play was too rushed, with the ball given away too easily.

The second half saw a much-improved Rangers performance. Nick Nurlan was unlucky to see a couple of chances go agonisingly close.

Ben Bagshaw made an amazing save to deny a clear goal-scoring chance for the Marrickville centre forward, and the Rangers defence led by Daniel O’Raw and Rob Lumb performed admirably. Bruce
Nagle continued his fine form, looking more composed with each passing game.

The final score was a 0-0 draw.

“The boys put in a solid team effort and I was pleased we played our own game and dominated for long spells. This was a more disciplined performance from a side which is still finding its feet in a higher and more competitive league,” coach Joseph Roppolo said.

“I know what the boys are capable of and as we build a stronger belief in our own abilities and have more confidence in each other, I know a win is just around the corner.”

Rangers A’s next game is against top of the table Strathfield B on Saturday, 12 May 12, 1.15pm at Strathfield Park #3.
