Kyneton Rangers under 16 soccer team's season and finals campaign ended in dramatic fashion on Saturday.
Several key players were struck down with illness, but with true spirit they turned up to play for each other and the jumper, with all giving their best.

Kyneton forwards were heavily tackled twice in the penalty box with the decision not going their way. Against the flow of play Bendigo scored with a few minutes to play. Final score Kyneton 3 Golden City 4.
