The team started the season off a little slow losing their 1st two games. They pulled together from there & they won all their remaining games to finish 2nd on the table with the best goal difference in the competition.
The Bush Rangers went into the Semi Final having to play Villa one of the teams that beat them at the start of the season. A massive effort saw the game finish 1-1 at full time & move into golden goal extra time. With 5 seconds left in golden goal extra time the boys put the ball in the back of the net courtesy of Christian Cusak with a brilliant header. Moving them into the Grand Final.
The Grand Final saw the boys take on the Little Rippers who were undefeated all season & who they lost their very 1st game to at the start of the season. Little Rippers scored within a few minutes of the start of the game & held on to a 1-0 lead at half time. The second half saw a lot of chances from both teams & both goalkeepers did a great job at keeping the other team out. With 1:30 left on the clock the Bush Rangers equalised 1-1. Full time score stayed at 1-1. Golden goal was upon the boys again this time neither team could get past the goalies in extra time.
The game went to a penalty shoot out with Bush Rangers winning 4-3. WELL DONE BOYS
Congratulations to Brandon McGrow, Lucius Conroy, Ethan Florence, Jimmy Harvey, Christian Cusak & Daniel Heitala.
