Laune Rangers hosted Beaufort on Sunday in the Mid Kerry Minor Championship Semi Final. Laune Rangers got off to a better start and, thanks to points from Cian O’Shea and Fiachra Clifford (2), led by 0-3 to 0-1 with 18 minutes played – Aaron Foley with Beaufort’s point in the period. Beaufort settled into the game in the 2nd quarter and four Mike Breen points (2 frees) brought his side level after Daniel Whittleton and Jamie Clifford pointed for Rangers. Patrick Daly slotted a free for Rangers before the short whistle to give his side the lead by the minimum at the break. The score at Half Time:- Laune Rangers 0-6, Beaufort 0-5.

Beaufort took the lead for the first time in the opening minute of the second half, when a speculative shot from Joseph Glynwood was mishandled by Robert Lynch in goal for Rangers, & the ball found the net for a goal. That would be the solitary score of the opening ten minutes of the second half. Beaufort’s Jonathan Kissane was sent off with a straight red card for an incident off the ball in the 40th minute, & Beaufort were down to 14 for the remainder of the game. Laune Rangers substitute Eoghan O’Sullivan scored a well taken point on the next phase of play but it was soon cancelled out by a Mike Breen free. With a quarter to play, Beaufort led by 1-6 to 0-7 but they would not score for the remainder of the game.

Daniel Whittleton finished a good team move for his second point of the game before Patrick Daly slotted the ball to the net for a Laune Rangers goal in the 50th minute, following some excellent work from cousins Fiachra and Jamie Clifford to re-take the lead. Jamie & Fiachra both pointed excellent scores in the closing minutes, and a final Patrick Daly free gave Laune Rangers the victory on a Final Score:- Laune Rangers 1-11, Beaufort 1-6.
