Agele Luate had a two good chances with less the 5 minutes left on the watch, and Chris Hunt one of his own, but Rangers just couldn’t ruffle the net, but with normal time running out and 4 minutes to be added for stoppages, Hingston put Luate through and Luate slipped the ball over Ferguson in the South Hobart goal to give the Rangers a small sniff.
South Hobart are a smart team though, and hit the corners and held the ball there to run the clock down, and though Rangers built 2 or 3 more attacks, they couldn’t break South down in the final moments, and time ran out, South Hobart deserved winners, but one has to ponder, as they looked very beatable on this occasion.
Well done to all Northern sides in the State Finals Series this year, we certainly showed that the North is not the basket case the south keep harping on about.
