U15 Semi Final win for Rangers Ladies

Laune Rangers 2-15, Dr Crokes 4-3

Laune Rangers qualified for the County Under 15 C Championship Final on Tuesday evening following an excellent Semi Final win against Dr Crokes in JP O’Sullivan Park.

Laune Rangers started well, scoring five points through Fodhla Houlihan (3, 1 free), Nessa Healy and Hannah McGeever, but a good recovery by Crokes saw them score two goals and a point in the following minutes to see the visitors lead 2-1 to 0-5 with a quarter played.

Rangers took the game by the scruff of the neck once again, and to Nessa Healy points levelled matters before Rachael Evans pointed Rangers ahead – a lead that they would not relinquish for the remainder of the game. Fodhla Houlihan (free) and Nessa Healy points were followed by a Fodhla Houlihan goal, but Crokes responded with 1-1 of their own late on. A final Fodhla Houlihan free gave Rangers a three point lead going into the break. Half Time Score:- Laune Rangers 1-11, Dr Crokes 3-2.

The second half saw fewer scores, but was played with high intensity, as the Laune Rangers backs held off sustained pressure. Fodhla Houlihan added 1-1 to her tally to see Rangers lead by 2-12 to 3-2 with a quarter to play, but Crokes got back into it with a goal and point of their own. However, Rangers were better in the final stages and points from Aisling Scannell and Fodhla Houlihan (2, 1 free) closed the game out – Scannell’s point in particular coming from a great team move. Full Time Score:- Laune Rangers 2-15, Dr Crokes 4-3.
