TOOWOOMBA Rangers have one hand back on this season's Ian Luchterhand Memorial Shield after squaring the ledger with arch rival All Stars in Brisbane today.

Led by an outstanding match contribution from Phil Vanderneut, Rangers recorded a 14-6 win to consolidate their position at the head of the GBL A1 League ladder.

All Stars inflicted Rangers only defeat so far this season with a 7-1 win at Commonwealth Oval in October.

That gave the Brisbane team a 1-0 lead in the race for the shield which Rangers have held since its inception five years ago.

But Rangers will now retain the trophy if the two teams don't meet again this season.

"The shield is still alive," coach Darryl Luchterhand said.

"If we don't see them again this season we retain it.

"If we meet them during the play-offs then it will be still up for grabs, but we don't hold any fears of playing them again."

Luchterhand said Vanderneut's stellar season form is proving a bonus for Rangers.

"It was the Phil Vanderneut show today," he said.

"He drove in nine runs by himself - that's absolutely outstanding."

Luchterhand said Rangers controlled play for much of the match, with some good team hitting a highlight.

"Our hitting was pretty strong all round," he said.

"Steve Metzroth came up from B grade and contributed strongly with three hits."

Rangers return to Commonwealth Oval next Sunday when they meet Redcliffe.
