WARRNAMBOOL Rangers bounced back from a loss to inflict pain on Castlemaine in Ballarat and District Soccer Association on Sunday.
The Rangers produced a 6-0 whitewash at Morehead Park to enter the Easter break with a 2-1 win/loss record in the men’s division one competition.
Dechlan Picken scored four goals for the Rangers and Matthew van Rooy chimed in with two.
Rangers coach Nick van Rooy said it was a promising result.
“I was happy with it. We showed a lot of potential but didn’t capitalise on all of our opportunities, which was frustrating,” van Rooy said.
“We had a lot more opportunities than the score line showed and we didn’t run out the match for the full 90 minutes.
“We just have to work on our fitness now.
“The highlight would have to have been how the boys knocked it around.
“It was crisp football, which is what we wanted to see.”
Issac Slater and Alemedin Yousif made their division one debuts after playing in the earlier division two match.
In other grades, Warrnambool suffered a 3-1 loss to Sebastopol in the women’s competition. Isabel Wilkinson scored the Rangers’ sole goal, which came in the first half.
Warrnambool won its division two men’s contest against Castlemaine, 4-2. Slater (two goals), Yousif (one) and Xavier Karras (one) hit the scoreboard.
