Losses in County League Division One and Nine Finals for Under 14s


Kilcummin was the venue for the Finals of the Less Strand County Under 14 Leagues Divisions One and Nine on Wednesday evening, with Laune Rangers facing off with Austin Stacks in both games.



Austin Stacks 5-17, Laune Rangers 3-13

A nightmare start for Rangers saw Austin Stacks score three goals in the opening five minutes of the Division One Final, with a fourth goal coming after Eoghan Hassett had pointed for Rangers. Tom Whittleton, Adam Owens & Mikey O’Donnell points were cancelled out by three by Stacks to see the Tralee side leading by 4-3 to 0-4 with 15 minutes played.

Stacks pressed their advantage further with three points and a 5th goal by the 20th minute as Callum Russell pointed a solitary effort for Rangers in the period. Laune Rangers improved late in the half and pointed through Eoghan Hassett ( 2 frees) and Callum Moriarty – all goal chances as the ‘no penalty’ rule at Under 14 level saw Rangers fouled multiple times in the square with a 13 metre free the only reward. Rangers hit the net twice late on though, with Adam Owens finishing well on both occasions to reduce the deficit going into the break, as Stacks had used up all of their allotted five goals allowed at U14 level also. Half Time Score:- Austin Stacks 5-8, Laune Rangers 2-8.

Stacks matched Rangers with 0-3 a piece in the third quarter – Eoghan Hassett (2), & Adam Owens pointing with the Launesider scores as Stacks maintained a 5-11 to 2-11 lead. Owens completed a hat-trick for Rangers with points also coming from Owens and Eoghan Hassett, but the big, physical Stacks side were far too strong for the young Rangers team on the day. They added 6 more points as Rangers were chasing goals to close out a comfortable win. Full Time Score:- Austin Stacks 5-17, Laune Rangers 3-13.

Laune Rangers ‘Blue’: Jake Reenstierna, James Byrne, Patrick Brennan, James Treacy, Tom Whittleton (0-1), Matt Reenstierna, Darragh Mangan, Calum Russell (0-1), Ryan Diggin, Mikey O’Donnell (0-1), Calum Moriarty (0-1), Jack O’Sullivan, Eoghan Hassett (0-6), Adam Owens (3-3), Marc Clifford.

Austin Stacks 2-14, Laune Rangers 2-9

Much like the Division One Final, the Division Nine encounter – played earlier in the evening in Kilcummin – saw a couple of early goals for Stacks leaving Laune Rangers chasing the game. Austin Stacks led by 2-3 to 0-2 after 15 minutes – Darragh Evans pointing twice for Rangers. Points by Cillian Foley and Adam Carey were cancelled out by Stacks in the second quarter to see the Rock maintain their lead into the break. Half Time Score:- Austin Stacks 2-5, Laune Rangers 0-4.

Stacks scored three consecutive points at the start of the second half to stretch their lead, but Rangers had the better of play for the remainder of the third quarter and points from Darragh O’Grady (2 frees), Darragh Evans & Eoin Lynch brought them back into the game. Rangers efforts upfield in attempt at goal left them exposed at the back, and Stacks scored five points in the latter stages to secure the win, with Darragh O’Grady pointing a free for Rangers during this time. Darragh O’Grady and Darragh Evans scored two fantastic goals to reduce the gap, but it was to no avail as Stacks had enough to hang on and win. Full Time score:- Austin Stacks 2-14, Laune Rangers 2-9.

Laune Rangers ‘White’: Jack Foley, Cillian Buckley, Aona O’Shea, Barry Moriarty, Killian Spillane, Cathal Crowley, Ciarán O’Sullivan, Dara Callan, Eoin Lynch (0-1), Daniel Evans, Cillian Foley (0-1), Joe Cronin Langham, Adam Carey (0-1), Darragh Evans (1-3), David Crowley.

Half Time Score:- Laune Rangers 3-7, Ballymacelligott 0-2.

Ballymac gave themselves every chance of a comeback with goals in the third quarter, hitting the net three times and added a couple of points, but Laune Rangers held their nerve and scored five points in the same period with frees from Eoghan Hassett (2), Adam Owens & Callum Russell with Calum Moriarty also pointing from play. With 15 minutes to play, Laune Rangers led by 3-12 to 3-4.

Rangers scored their fourth goal in the 47th minute through substitute Darragh O’Grady before a Callum Russell point was nullified by one for the visitors – a point that would prove to be Ballymac’s final score of the game. Russell scored the home side’s fifth goal as Rangers closed the game out. Points were added in the final stages by Adam Owens, Eoghan Hassett (free), Darragh Callan and Darragh O’Grady.

Rangers White team reach Division Nine Final

 Ballymacelligott 3-9, Laune Rangers 3-10

Laune Rangers Under 14 White Team visited Ballymacelligott this evening in the County League Division Nine Semi Final, and came out on top by the narrowest of margins.

Following early points by Daniel Evans and David Crowley for Rangers, Ballymac netted a goal and two points to lead by three with a quarter played. The Rangers players grew into the game though, with points from Jack Healy, Darragh Evans & Darragh O’Grady being followed up by a great goal by Jack Healy to give the visitors the lead. Both sets of defences gained the upper hand for the later part of the half, with Ciarán O’Sullivan and Eoin Lynch doing well in particular for Rangers, and a Ballymac pointed free proved to be the final score of the half to see Rangers leading at the break. Half Time Score:- Ballymacelligott 1-3, Laune Rangers 1-5.

Laune Rangers got the ideal start to the second half, with Darragh O’Grady hitting the net for a goal. O’Grady also cancelled out an earlier Ballymac point with one of his own, before a great tackle out the field by Cathal O’Callghan dispossessed his marker and the following play ended with Jack Healy punching an overhead ball to the net for his second goal of the evening. Further points by Darragh Evans and Jack Healy were met by another free by Ballymac, before Darragh O’Grady saw a shot saved brilliantly by the Ballymac goalkeeper to deny Rangers a fourth goal. With 45 minutes played, Laune Rangers led by 3-8 to 1-6.

The final quarter was a different game as momentum swung heavily in the home side’s favour. Ballymac goaled in the 50th minute to reduce the gap and went on to tag on 3 more points to leave four between the sides with two minutes of normal time to play. Darragh O’Grady pointed again for Rangers, but late scores for Ballymac would give Laune Rangers a nervous end, as the home side kicked a goal and point deep into injury time. However, Rangers held on to win and qualified for the County League Division Nine Final against the winner of Austin Stacks vs Dr Crokes. Full Time Score:- Ballymacelligott 3-9, Laune Rangers 3-10.

Laune Rangers suffered defeat in the final of Féile Peile na nÓg Chiarraí on Wednesday evening as the final four teams in the County – Rangers, Kilcummin, Dr Crokes and Austin Stacks – faced off. Kilcummin hosted Laune Rangers, while Dr Crokes entertained Austin Stacks in the Semi Finals with the winner of each tie to meet in the Final in the 15 minute per half competition.

SEMI FINAL: Kilcummin 1-4, Laune Rangers 4-5

Laune Rangers beat Kilcummin in the Semi Final, as a strong second half display saw them over the line.

Half Time:- Kilcummin 1-3, Laune Rangers 2-1.

Rangers were excellent in the second half, as they scored 2-4 unanswered as the Laune backs got on top of their markers, with Darragh Mangan, James Treacy clearing the danger time and again.

FINAL: Austin Stacks 0-10, Laune Rangers 0-3

Points were scored by Adam Owens (free) and Marc Clifford – the latter hitting the crossbar before going over. Half Time:- Austin Stacks 0-5, Laune Rangers 0-2.

Austin Stacks were much stronger in the second half as they scored five more points, as Laune Rangers only managed a solitary Calum Russell point late on having let some more chances slip by. Final Score:- Austin Stacks 0-10, Laune Rangers 0-3.

It was a disappointing end to the evening for Rangers, as they eventually suffered for their lack of stature against a more physical team.

Central Under 16 League Division 1 FINAL:- Laune Rangers vs Austin Stacks. 1/5/17

The Laune Rangers Under 16 team that contested the Central Region Division One Final on Bank Holiday Monday evening.

Austin Stacks 5-12, Laune Rangers 2-9

Laune Rangers Under 16s suffered their first defeat of the season on Monday evening, as Austin Stacks defeated them in the Central Region Division One Final in Milltown. This was a rematch of sorts, as the same clubs battled out the 2015 Under 14 decider.

Austin Stacks got the perfect start, scoring two goals in the opening three minutes to take a commanding lead. Laune Rangers were playing much better in the early minutes and got a deserved goal of their own as Roan Moriarty reacted fastest to a dropped ball in the square and tapped it into the net. The momentum gained from this goal did not last, however, as Stacks responded with third goal – this one against the run of play – to restore their lead. The Tralee side then kicked the first point of the game to lead by 3-1 to 1-0 with 15 minutes played.

There had been worry over the fitness of David Mangan before the game as he had missed the previous two rounds with injury, and they were proved right to be worried as he was forced off early on. His loss was felt sorely too, as Stacks scored a fourth goal and added three points in the second quarter. Rangers responded with points from Shane Doona, Gabriel Griffin and Jack Evans to go in at the break trailing by ten points. Half Time Score:- Austin Stacks 4-4, Laune Rangers 1-3.

Stacks opened the scoring after the break with a point, before Laune Rangers’ best period of play saw them score four points unanswered in the space of five minutes – a brace each coming from Shane Doona (frees) and Gearoid Hassett. Stacks delivered another body-blow though, scoring a fifth goal and pointing soon after to wipe out Rangers gains beforehand. Laune Rangers were playing well at this point, but their final pass let them down time and again. Gearoid Hassett found the net for Rangers’ second goal in the 44th minute when a fine pass from Gabe Griffin found him in space and he made no mistake, rounding the goalkeeper and tapping into the empty net. With fifteen minutes to play, Austin Stacks led by 5-5 to 2-7.

With Laune Rangers chasing the game, Austin Stacks had control of the game and closed it out with relative comfort. Rangers managed two further points with Hassett and Barry O’Connor giving Rangers the only reward for their efforts but as Rangers pushed upfield, Stacks were able to break on the counter-attack and added seven points to their tally to add gloss to the scoreline. Full Time Score:- Austin Stacks 5-12, Laune Rangers 2-9.

Under 16 competition now takes a break, with the County Leagues to begin later in the summer.

Laune Rangers:- Ronan Fitzpatrick, Evan Madden, Cormac Doyle, Timmy O’Shea, Rory O’Connor, James Hurley, Ronan O’Shea, David Mangan, Gabriel Griffin (0-1), Eoin Clifford, Shane Doona (0-3), Matthew Leslie, Jack Evans (0-1), Roan Moriarty (1-0), Gearoid Hassett (1-3). Subs: Conor Burke, Barry O’Connor (0-1), Peadar Foley, Stephen Sealey, Niall Fenton Toms, Shogie O’Sullivan.

Laune Rangers 6-18, Churchill 2-12

Laune Rangers Under 16s defeated Churchill on Monday evening to complete their Central Region Division One League stage with four wins from four.

Laune Rangers were quick out of the blocks and were 1-3 to 0-0 ahead after 5 minutes, with Gabriel Griffin, Ronan O’Shea, & James Hurley pointing, while a further point attempt rebounded off the uprights onto the path of Gearoid Hassett, who slotted the ball to the net. Churchill responded with a quick 1-2 of their own, but a Stephen Sealey point for Rangers was followed up by Hassett’s second goal – a super shot past the keeper after beating two defenders. A Churchill pointed free was cancelled out by a Barry O’Connor point to leave Rangers ahead by 2-5 to 1-3 after 15 minutes.

Churchill outscored Laune Rangers by 5 points to 3 in the second quarter to leave a goal between the sides at the break – Gearoid Hassett, Gabe Griffin and James Hurley adding the scores for Rangers. Half Time score:- Laune Rangers 2-8, Churchill 1-8.

Laune Rangers began the send half in the same fashion as the first, and scored their third goal through half time replacement Sean Cleary after a fine move from midfield. Churchill responded with a point, and could have found themselves ahead in minutes, but Rangers goalkeeper Ronan Fitzpatrick pulled off two great saves to deny the visitors goals. This took the wind out of the Churchill sails somewhat as Laune Rangers pushed on. Matt Leslie pointed before Gearoid Hassett completed his hat-trick with another excellent goal while Shane Doona added a free. Gabe Griffin saw his shot saved at point blank range by the Churchill netminder. A Churchill point was cancelled out by a great Timmy O’Shea point before the visitors pointed twice more to leave Rangers ahead by 4-10 to 1-12 with a quarter of the game to play.

Churchill hit the post with a penalty before Rangers increased their lead with a point from Gabe Griffin and a Roan Moriarty goal. Churchill responded with a goal of their own but this would prove to be their final score, as the hosts added a further 1-6 in the last ten minutes to put a gloss on the scoreboard that didn’t do justice to the visitors’ efforts – Roan Moriarty with his second goal & points from Moriarty (2), Matt Leslie (2), Barry O’Connor and Eoin Clifford.

Darragh O’Grady put the finishing touch to a fine move, which included a great pass from full forward Marc Clifford. Clifford himself got his team’s third goal, as he was alert enough to beat the full back to a short kickout and put the ball into the net again. Dr Crokes goalkeeper Long may have felt at fault for the third goal, but he more than made up for it with two more excellent saves from Mikey O’Donnell & Jack O’Sullivan as points from Callum Russell and Ryan Diggin left Laune Rangers ahead by 3-7 to 0-8 with a quarter to play. Rangers outscored Crokes by three points to one in the final quarter – through Russell, Hassett & Diggin - to close out the game for a good win. Full Time score:- Dr Crokes 0-9, Laune Rangers 3-10.

The result leaves Laune Rangers top of the Division One Table after three away games, with the two home games against Ballymacelligott & Kilcummin to play.
