Heartbreak in County League Finals for Rangers.

Division One:- Laune Rangers 2-16, Glenflesk 5-9 

Laune Rangers came up short in their attempt to win a first County Under 14 Division 1 title in 14 years for the club on Wednesday evening as Glenflesk came out on top in the Final played in Fitzgerald stadium.

Laune Rangers started brightly and led by 1-6 to 0-2 after fifteen minutes, with Jack O’Sullivan (3, 2 frees), Eoghan Hassett, Ryan Diggin and John Burke all pointed while Hassett netted an excellent goal. Dylan Roche and Sean Guerin (free) pointed for Glenflesk in the same period.

Glenflesk got back into the game in the 16th minute, as they got their first goal – an effort at a point rebounding high on the upright and dropping to Dylan Roche who found the net. Both sides missed chances in the second quarter, but Rangers – through Eoghan Hassett (free), Jack O’Sullivan (2) and Darragh O’Grady – added four points to Glenflesk’s three to take a five point lead into the break. Half Time Score:- Laune Rangers 1-10, Glenflesk 1-5.

A Luke Crowley goal for Glenflesk was sandwiched between two Jack O’Sullivan points for Rangers early in the half, but the winning of the game came between the 38th and 43rd minute as Dyland Roche & substitute Ignatius O’Leary (2) scored three goals to give Glenflesk a commanding lead on the three-quarter mark. Roche and Darragh O’Connor pointed for Glenflesk while Jack O’Sullivan added to his tally for Rangers to leave the Sliabh Luachra men leading by 5-8 to 1-13 with 15 minutes to play.

Dylan Roche got Glenflesk’s final score of the game in the 46th minute, as Rangers set about trying to claw back an eight point deficit. A 54th minute goal by Darragh O’Grady along with points by O’Grady & Eoghan Hassett left Rangers needing a goal to level the game with five minutes to play. However, they missed a number of chances – the setting sun at the Hospital end of the ground possibly causing an issue – and a late shot by Jack O’Sullivan flashed just over the crossbar. The equalizing score was not to come for Rangers, and Glenflesk held on to take the County Under 14 Division 1 title.

It was an exciting game as the two best sides at the age-group in the county – they drew in the League stage in Barraduff with both teams beating everyone else and Rangers defeated Glenflesk in the County Féile Final – were separated by a kick of a ball at the final whistle. Laune Rangers were slightly below par on the night and were beaten by a hungrier Glenflesk side who made an inspired second half substitution in double goal scorer Ignatius O’Leary. Dylan Roche was excellent on the night, showing signs that he will follow older brothers Darragh & Ian & have a great career in the blue and gold and maybe beyond.

For Rangers, Jack O’Sullivan was the main scoring threat, scoring nine points (six from play). Ryan Diggin was fantastic at midfield, while corner backs Cathal O’Callaghan and particularly Tim Mangan had outstanding games.

Rangers now switch focus to Féile Peile na nÓg and a trip to County Down in just five weeks time.

Laune Rangers:- Adam Carey, Tim Mangan, Aona O’Shea, Cathal O’Callaghan, Killian Spillane, Tom Whittleton, Ciarán O’Sullivan, Adam Owens, Ryan Diggin (0-1), Darragh O’Grady (1-2), Eoghan Hassett (1-3, 1f), John Tuohy, John Burke (0-1), Cillian Foley, Jack O’Sullivan (0-9, 3f).  Subs: Eoin Lynch, Joseph Cronin Langham

Division Nine:- Laune Rangers 5-11, Dr Crokes 5-14

A fantastic performance from the Laune Rangers Development team brought them to within touching distance of a County Division Nine title but a strong Dr Crokes outfit, bolstered by the addition of a number of their Division 1 side, just came out on top by a three point margin.

As Rangers were also contesting the Division 1 Final, Laune Rangers made do without a couple of eligible players that were filling in for injuries in the later game. That being said, those that took the field for Rangers gave their all.

Dr Crokes led by 2-2 to 1-3 after 15 minutes, as Joe Cronin Langham finished a fine team move with an excellent goal while OIsin Lynch (free) and Eoin Joy (2). Crokes went on the ascendancy in the second quarter, adding a third goal and four more points, while a second Joe Cronin Langham goal along with an Oisin Lynch point saw Rangers heading in at the break trailing by five points. Half Time Score:- Laune Rangers 2-4, Dr Crokes 3-6.

Dr Crokes added another 1-2 in the early minutes of the second half to double their lead, while they responded to goals (Oisin Lynch and Cillian Buckley) and points (Lynch (2) and Colin Griffin with a further 1-2 to hold a 5-10 to 4-7 with 15 minutes to play.

Rangers put in a mammoth effort in the final quarter in attempt to catch Crokes, but they added four important points that would eventually prove the difference. Rangers scored a fifth goal through Joseph O’Neill and pointed through Oisin Lynch, Darragh Evans and Jamie Healy (2). However, Crokes kept their noses ahead to take the County Division Nine title. Full Time Score:- Laune Rangers 5-11, Dr Crokes 5-14.

Colin Griffin led by example as the captain had a great game at wing back for Rangers. Oisin Lynch was excellent at full forward, while the Under 12 players that were called up as cover all got game time, with Niall Tadhg O’Brien particular in his very first game at the age grade for Rangers.

Laune Rangers:- Micheál O’Shea, Senan O’Meara, James Prendiville, Devin Hogan, Oisin Birmigham, Tom Garry, Colin Griffin (capt) (0-1), Joseph Cronin Langham (2-0), Cillian Buckley (1-0), Jamie Healy (0-2), Eoin Joy (0-2), Rian O’Sullivan, Cian Fogarty, Oisin Lynch (1-5, 2f), Joseph O’Neill (1-0). Subs: David Crowley, Darragh Evans (0-1), Niall Tadhg O’Brien, Shane Clifford, Dara Clifford, Stephen Gannon.

Fresh from their County Féile success the previous weekend, Laune Rangers Under 14 Boys resumed County League action on Wednesday evening, with both teams coming away with good wins in their respective Divisions 

Division 1:- Laune Rangers 5-20, Moyvane 0-7

Laune Rangers put in an excellent performance in a top of the table clash in JP O’Sullivan Park, but the sides were evenly balanced in the early stages. Cillian Foley netted early while Eoghan Hassett added three points, but Moyvane pointed three times in the period to leave Rangers leading by a goal with a quarter played.

Rangers kicked on and increased their lead in the second quarter, with Ryan Diggin getting forward from midfield to score a great goal. Moyvane pointed twice, but Rangers responded with points from Darragh O’Grady & Jack O’Sullivan (2, 1 free). Half Time Score:- Laune Rangers 2-6, Moyvane 0-5.

Moyvane pointed once in the third quarter with a free, although Adam Carey denied the visitors with a great save. Laune Rangers were clinical at the opposite end as Eoghan Hassett pointed three times to supplement a fine goal, while Oisin Lynch netted shortly after his introduction. Jack O’Sullivan (2) & Ryan Diggin stretched Rangers lead to 4-12 to 0-6 with 15 minutes to play.

Rangers continued to press home their advantage in the final quarter with a fifth goal coming through Darragh Evans, while points from Jack O’Sullivan, Cillian Foley, Adam Owens, Ciarán O’Sullivan & Eoghan Hassett (4). Aside from some excellent attacking, the defending was super all evening, with Tim Mangan & Cathal O’Callaghan particularly solid. Full Time Score:- Laune Rangers 5-20, Moyvane, 0-7.

Sub: Oisín Lynch (1-0).

Division 9:- Laune Rangers 5-10, Austin Stacks 4-4

Laune Rangers White team were in also action on Wednesday evening, playing against Austin Stacks in Cloon.

Electing to play against the breeze in the first half, Rangers found it difficult to get out of their own half. Austin Stacks were hungrier and won more possession – retaining it well – so the Rangers defence were under a lot of pressure. However dogged defending from goalkeeper and full-back line prevented Stacks from racing further ahead. The Half Back line and midfielders intertwined well and helped each other out, while the forwards managed to bag 3 goals with very limited ball. Half-time A Stacks 4-4, LR 3-0.

The wayward hand-passing was addressed at Half Time by the coaching team of Paudie O’Shea, Patsy Joy and John Clifford, and a very different Rangers team came out after the break. Every ball was contested and won, denying Stacks any control on the game. Rangers were now finding their teammates with passes and were also finding the target, hitting 2-10 to 0-0 in the second half even though the breeze had died down.

A super team effort from all players in the second half meant Rangers kept up their 100% winning record in this division and guaranteed a semi-final place.

Laune Rangers ‘White’:- Micheál O’Shea, Shane Kelliher, James Prendiville, Devin Hogan, Oisin Birmingham, Tom Garry, John Tuohy, Cillian Buckley, Colin Griffin, Rian O’Sullivan, Eoin Joy, Joseph Cronin Langham, Cian Fogarty, David Crowley, Senan O’Meara. Sub: Jamie Healy.

Laune Rangers 4-5, An Ghaeltacht 2-7

Laune Rangers hosted An Ghaeltacht on Monday evening a rescheduled Round 4 tie in the Central Region Division 1, played in Cloon pitch.

An Ghaeltacht scored a goal in the opening minute and followed up soon after with a fine point. Laune Rangers soon kicked in to action, and Gearoid Hassett hit the net with a great finish following some great team play in the lead up. Rangers scored a second goal in the 10th minute, as Callum Russell netted from the penalty spot after Gearoid Hassett had been hauled down in the square. Two Ghaeltacht points (one from a free) had the visitors level at 2-0 to 1-3 by the quarter mark.

A highlight of the first half was Sean Cleary’s four separate block downs from An Ghaeltacht shots, and Cleary charged down two more shots by the visitors early in the second half. A goal for An Ghaeltacht levelled the scores again in the 4th minute of the second half, but Rangers responded and a pointed free through Gearoid Hassett was soon followed by a fourth goal for the hosts – Mikey O’Donnell applying the finish after Hassett picked him out with a great pass on a quickly taken free. With a quarter of the game to play, Rangers led by 4-3 to 2-5.

An Ghaeltacht pointed to reduce the gap to three and, after a Gearoid Hassett point was cancelled out by a pointed free for the visitors, there was just a goal between the sides while the teams could have drawn level but for a great save by Jack Foley. However, Marc Clifford got a deserved score for his efforts with a super late point to secure the win. Full Time Score:- Laune Rangers 4-5, An Ghaeltacht 2-7.

Laune Rangers will represent Kerry in Féile Peil na nÓg 2018 following victory in the County Finals this afternoon in Connolly Park, Tralee. They were pushed all the way in both the Semi Final and Final by Ballymacelligott and Glenflesk respectively, but dug deep on both occasions to claim a County title.

SEMI FINAL:- Laune Rangers 4-8, Ballymacelligott 2-6

Rangers led their Semi Final by five points at Half Time at 2-4 to 1-2, but Ballymac rallied early in the second half and led at the three-quarter mark, having scored 1-4 unanswered. However, Rangers came back and held Ballymac scoreless for the remainder of the game, which they scored another 2-4 of their own to make sure of the win. Full Time Score:- Laune Rangers 4-8, Ballymacelligott 2-6. Scorers for Rangers were:- Darragh O’Grady 1-2, Darragh Evans 1-0, Cillian Foley 1-0, Adam Owens 1-0, Eoghan Hassett (0-4, 3f), Jack O’Sullivan (0-2).

FINAL:- Laune Rangers 5-8, Glenflesk 3-4

Laune Rangers had the benefit of the breeze for the first half of the Final & made full use of it to lead by 2-6 to 0-3 at the break – Adam Owens netting twice in the first five minutes, with Jack O’Sullivan (2, 1 free), Darragh O’Grady (3) & Owens adding points in the 15 minute period.

Rangers were put under pressure for the second half, but the defence stood up to answer every question asked of them. The Rangers got off to the perfect start against the breeze, scoring a goal in the first play of the second half, but Glenflesk replied with a goal of their own very shortly afterwards. However, Rangers got up field again to score a fourth goal through Cillian Foley. Glenflesk began to dominate the possession for much of the remainder of the game, and they scored two goals and a point to reduce the gap between the sides to six points. Rangers were not going to be denied on the day though, and a fifth goal was to come for Rangers through Jack Lynch, before Eoghan Hassett pointed a free for the competition’s final score. Full Time:- Laune Rangers 5-8, Glenflesk 3-4.

Laune Rangers were fantastic on the day, with Jack O’Sullivan & Ryan Diggin a driving force and Adam Owens, Cillian Foley & Darragh O’Grady clinical in their scoring. The stand out player over the two games was Rangers wing back Ciarán O’Sullivan who, along with full back Aona O’Shea, drove their team out of danger at the back at crucial times. Well done to the coaches, Billy O’Sullivan, Diarmuid O’Sullivan, Mike Frank Russell and John O’Dwyer who had their charges in great condition.

Having lost the three previous Féile County Finals, the class of 2018 finally bring Laune Rangers to the national stage to represent Kerry in Féile Peil na nÓg, which will take place in Down, Louth and Meath in the last weekend of June.

Laune Rangers could have been further ahead but the woodwork twice stopped Eoin Joy from scoring goals. Half Time Score:- Laune Rangers 2-5, Milltown/Castlemaine 0-1.

Milltown/Castlemaine took over completely in the second half with the breeze behind them, which left Laune Rangers backs under sustained pressure.

Central Region Under 16 Division One Round 3:- Laune Rangers vs Castlegregory. 09/04/2018

posted 9 Apr 2018, 16:08 by Laune Rangers

Laune Rangers 5-18, Castlegregory 4-6 

Laune Rangers Under 16 Boys played their first home game of the season on Monday evening, defeating Castlegregory in the Central Region League Division One.

There was very little between the sides in the opening quarter, as Castlegregory pointed from the opening possession. Laune Rangers had to wait until the fifth minute for their first score, but it was worth the wait – Gearoid Hassett collecting possession on the left flank before setting off along the sideline and then cutting in to beat three defenders and hit the bottom corner of the net. Matt Leslie pointed for Rangers but it was soon cancelled out by a Castlegregory free. Rangers were awarded a 8th minute penalty as the only way to stop Gearoid Hassett’s run was to haul him down inside the square, but the resulting spot kick taken by Matthew Leslie was saved by Castlegregory’s goalkeeper. Castlegregory made full use of the momentum shift, pointing a free before scoring a well taken goal to take a two point lead. However, Jack Healy responded with a point, before Marc Clifford palmed home Rangers’ second goal from a pass across the square by Gearoid Hassett. Hassett scored a point to increase Rangers’ lead to three, but Castlegregory equalized as an effort at a point came back off the post to an attacker who found the net. With 15 minutes played, the sides were level at 2-3 a piece.

Laune Rangers went ahead again in the 18th minute with another excellent goal that was finished by Gearoid Hassett after being worked out from a short kickout through half the Rangers side. This seemed to take the wind out of the sails of the Castlegregory players, and Rangers added six unanswered points in the second quarter through Callum Russell (2), Calum Moriarty, Matt Leslie (2) & Gearoid Hassett – all of the highest quality from either long range, an acute angle or both. Half Time Score:- Laune Rangers 3-9, Castlegregory 2-3.

Laune Rangers continued to push on straight from the restart, as Calum Russell finished a nice move for the team’s fourth goal, and Gearoid Hassett completed a hat-trick a minute later to effectively end the game as a contest. Points by Matt Leslie (3, 1 free), and Gearoid Hassett were answered by two Castlegregory points, while the visitors netted their third goal from the penalty spot to leave Rangers leading by 5-13 to 3-5 with a quarter to play.

Gearoid Hassett & Matt Leslie (2) continued to put the scoreboard operator to work with further points – Leslie’s last point a super effort from long range bringing his personal tally to 8 points (7 from play) – but these scores were cancelled out by a fourth goal by Castlegregory after some nice play.
