Beaufort 1-5, Laune Rangers 6-13
Laune Rangers Under 16s made it two wins from two in the Mid Kerry Competition with an away victory in Beaufort on Sunday morning.
There were a number of players missing on both sides but it didn’t affect the Rangers style of play as they went on to score 6 goals on the day. The first came directly from a free kick as Dáire Cleary put the ball to the top corner of the net from 25 yards out. He went on to score another goal and was joined on the goals list by his brother Seán (an U14 player), Mark O’Connor, and Shane Doona (2).
The defence were solid in the first half as they conceded a solitary point, while they didn’t allow much more in the second half as Beaufort tagged a further 1-4. Cormac Doyle made some key blocks and a great interception to snuff out another Beaufort attack, while Rory O’Connor (another U14) also came into the side and certainly didn’t weaken it.
Laune Rangers will host Cromane/Glenbeigh/Glencar in the third Round of fixtures. The game will take place on Saturday 19th November at 2:30pm in JP O’Sullivan Park.
