TOOWOOMBA Rangers goal of going into the Christmas break at the head of the GBL AI League ladder remains on track following their victory over Windsor today.

Rangers stretched their winning season streak to seven games with a 7-1 win over Windsor in Brisbane.

The victory takes their season win-loss record to 11-1 to maintain a healthy winning-percentage lead over second-placed Redcliffe Padres.

Rangers win today was built on a strong second-innings batting performance and another dominant pitching effort from Phil Vanderneut.

"We put five runs on in the second innings and then sort of put the cue in the rack before adding another two in the fourth," coach Darryl Luchterhand said.

"But we were always in control with the only run we gave up coming in the fifth.

"Lewis Codd and Mick Locke both swung the bat well for us."

Rangers only hiccup on the day was an arm injury to pitcher Sean Linley.

"Phil dominated the four innings he pitched before Sean Linley came on for one out before he hurt his arm.

"Shaun Clarke missed the game for us today so I came on to finish out.

"We play our final match before the Christmas break at home next week against Pine Hills Black and that should be another good game."
