Rangers U16s defeat Kenmare in County League

Laune Rangers 5-14, Kenmare 4-8

Laune Rangers Under 16s faced Kenmare on Tuesday evening in the County League Division One in JP O’Sullivan Park.

After Shane Doona, Ronan O’Shea, & David Mangan each saw early points nullified by points by the visitors, Kenmare took the lead with a goal after Shane Doona had edged Rangers ahead. However, Laune Rangers recovered well as Gearoid Hassett followed up a well taken point with Rangers’ first goal. The home side went on to score a further 1-4 without reply as Ronan O’Shea (free), David Mangan, Shane Doona and Jack Evans all pointed before Eoin Clifford rippled the net with a goal. Kenmare replied with a couple of points before goals were traded between the sides – David Mangan finishing a well worked team goal before Kenmare responded with a three pointer of their own before the break. Half Time Score:- Laune Rangers 3-9, Kenmare 2-5.

Laune Rangers fourth goal came soon into the second half, as Shane Doona applied the finish following an accurate and unselfish pass from Jack Evans. This goal came after points had been scored – Kenmare opening the scoring before Eoin Clifford and Doona (free) responded for Rangers. The Kenmare net was almost hit again when a flowing move between Shane Doona, Gabe Griffin and David Mangan who saw his shot saved excellently. Mangan didn’t have to wait long for his second goal of the evening though as he increased Rangers lead, but it was soon cancelled out by Kenmare’s third goal – this goal shortly after Ronan Fitzpatrick had pulled off an excellent double save in goal for Rangers. Kenmare added two points to trail by 5-11 to 3-8 with about ten minutes to play.

The ultra-high scoring slowed down in the final stages as both sides were guilty of kicking wides. Shane Doona (2) and David Mangan added to their own tallies while Kenmare added a final goal and a point to reduce the gap between the sides at the long whistle. Full Time Score:- Laune Rangers 5-14, Kenmare 4-8.
