Sydney Rangers weekend match report
Sydney Rangers Football Club has two teams competing in the Canterbury District association every Saturday.
Social soccer is held at 3.30pm at Centennial Park (near Oxford St above water reservoir) every Sunday afternoon and new players are welcome.
The Rangers A team had a great victory against Stanmore on Saturday under near-perfect skies and breezy conditions in Marrickville.
The side showed true grit and determination and the effort from every player was commendable. No matter who is playing in the Rangers A shirt – sporting the Star Observer logo – , the team shows the same fighting spirit and works together to get a positive result.
This win leaves the side on eight wins, one draw and one loss for the season.
The Rangers look best when they play a short passing game out of midfield.
They put Stanmore under pressure in the first half and an excellent corner from Nick resulted in a towering header into the net by Dom to make it 1-0.
Stanmore is a young, fast and enthusiastic side, but the Rangers’ defence was flawless under increasing pressure.
Stanmore didn’t get a clear attempt at goal.
Stanmore gave everything they had to crack the Rangers’ defence, but the Rangers proved too strong. Not only did they defend well, but created some good chances in the second half, despite not finding the back of the net.
The wanted to put out a special thank you to Gavin, Mark and Paul from Rangers B who played an important role in helping the A side win this game.
info: The Rangers’ next game is on Saturday, June 25 against Earlwood at Beaman Park, Earlwood at 3pm.
