Laune Rangers U-12 A team got their County League campaign of to a winning start on Friday evening with a good 7-10 to 5-7 away win at legion. Goals from Padraig Purcell and Patrick Carey left us a goal to the good at half time, the second half was very close and it took some fine goalkeeping from Padraig Aherne and great defensive work from Daragh O’Sullivan to keep us in control. A goal from Dáire Cleary and 2 points from Cian O’Shea meant that we ran out comfortable winners in the end.
Team: Padraig Aherne, Eoin Evans, Oisin Daly, Daragh O’Sullivan, Darragh O’Shea, Eoin O’Sullivan, Fiachra Clifford, Cian O’Shea(0-5), Patrick Carey(3-2), Dáire Cleary(1-1), Padraig Purcell(3-2), Dylan Costello.
On Friday last our second U-12 B
team played their first competitive match. They took on a strong Legion side. Legion
had the better of the first half and led at half time. Laune Rangers fought
back well in the second half but legion still came away with the win. All
credit is due to our team some of whom played their first game of football. All
players showed great heart and attitude. A good night out was had by all
players. Training again on Wednesday at 6.30pm in Cloon.
