Laune Rangers 3-10, Glenflesk 5-4

In a highly entertaining contest in JP O’Sullivan Park on Thursday evening, Laune Rangers and Glenflesk finished all square in the East Kerry Under 16 League.

Laune Rangers had a great start and opened the scoring with a great goal through Nicole Moriarty. Alanna O’Sullivan added a point to Rangers four ahead with 6 minutes played. However, Glenflesk had the lead by the 18th minute, as two points were followed by the visitors’ first goal. Amy Dunphy tied up scores in the 19th minute with a point, but Glenflesk scored two goals in as many minutes to take a commanding lead. Nessa Healy pointed for Rangers before the hosts won a 26th minute penalty, which was duly dispatched by corner back Laura Brennan. Points for by Nicole Moriarty & Amy Dunphy followed for Rangers before Glenflesk netted their fourth goal. Nicole Moriarty saw a late point nullified by Glenflesk to see the sides separated by three points at the break. Half Time Score:- Laune Rangers 2-6, Glenflesk 4-3.

Glenflesk extended their lead at the start of the second half, but Rangers responded well, and Claire Fealey made a couple of fine saves after going in to goals for the second half. Nicole Moriarty scored her second and Rangers’ third goal while Aisling Scannell levelled the game up in the 47th minute, but the home side fell behind again almost immediately when Glenflesk scored their 5th goal. This left Glenflesk ahead by 5-4 to 3-7 with almost a quarter to play.

Rangers defence was outstanding for the final quarter, as Laura Brennan & Lucy Knight patrolled the large parallelogram in front of an impressive Claire Fealey. This allowed those in front of her to push forward. Nicole Moriarty and Nessa Healy reduced the deficit to the minimum as Rangers pushed on, before Orla Browne kicked an equalizer late on. Rangers continued to push for the winner, with Rachael Evans covering the whole field in persistant running, with Kayleigh McGlashan and Andrea Nolan in support. However, the winning score would not come for either team and the sides finished all square – a fair result after an exciting game. Full Time Score:- Laune Rangers 3-10, Glenflesk 5-4.
