Manager Mark Pow named the same starting XI and that was rewarded with an encouraging first-half display that saw three goals scored.
It took 25 minutes for Volunteer to break the deadlock and it came thanks to a moment of magic from centre-back Myles Hall as he chipped the keeper from just inside the Rangers half.
The floodgates then opened and a superb second from Mark Lomas was added to soon after as Andy Lomas curled a shot past the goalkeeper.
Rifle struggled to keep the same intensity in the second period and wasteful finishing meant they didn’t add to their lead until Kevin West headed home.
