Game at Nuffield – Norbury
Result L 0-1 (HT 0-0)
Men of match: Zac and Finlay
Hard fought battle this am between the teams. First half took a while to get going but both teams displayed some good football. One contentious moment half way through the half – Rangers corner, converted by Alvaro, everyone thought it was a goal and the ball had crossed the line but it wasn’t given by the officials. Zac made several excellent saves and was brave in goal throughout the game. First half finished 0:0.
Second half was again well fought for. The game could have easily gone either way, each Rangers player put a lot of effort in. No subs today and against a team who had 3 which made it hard work but we did have our chances including one from Finlay which hit the cross bar. 5 mins before end of the match a quick ball through was well taken by independent and we were 1:0 down. Then we went down to 8 players as Xavier came off worse in a challenge and came off with a damaged foot. Possible penalty moment was instead a free kick. Close but not close enough. game finished 1:0. Well done to all 9 players.
