Rangers to contest Under 14 Division One Final

Laune Rangers 5-17, Ballymacelligott 3-5

Laune Rangers will contest both the Division One and Division Nine Finals of the County Under 14 League as the ‘Blue’ Team followed up the ‘White’ Team’s success earlier in the week with victory over Ballymacelligott in the Division One Semi Final on Friday night in JP O’Sullivan Park.

Ballymac opened the scoring with an early point but Rangers responded immediately, as Adam Owens applied an excellent finish to hit the net for his first goal. Laune Rangers went on to add points from Owens, Mikey O’Donnell & Callum Russell (free) before Ballymac slotted their second point. With a quarter of the game played, Laune Rangers led by 1-3 to 0-2.

Rangers dominated the second quarter and held the visitors scoreless during the period, with Marc Clifford excelling in the half forward line and Darragh Mangan sweeping up at the back. Adam Owens netted his second goal as well as two points with Eoghan Hassett added a brace – 1 from free – before Marc Clifford was rewarded for his efforts with a goal before the break. 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. Full Time Score:- Laune Rangers 5-17, Ballymacelligott 3-5.
