Senior Ladies Season up and running

Laune Rangers 2-12, Legion 3-9

The County Senior Ladies League got underway on Sunday morning, with a home game versus Killarney Legion played in Cloon.

Laune Rangers began brightly, and were ahead by 2-5 to 0-1 at the midway stage of the first half, as Alanna O’Sullivan (1-1), Ciara O’Brien (1-0) and Nicole Moriarty (0-3) all scored with goalkeeper Claire Fealey, Laura Brennan and Ava Griffin solid at the back. Kayleigh McGlashan, Rachael Evans and Ciara O’Brien provided an excellent link between defence and attack.

Alanna O’Sullivan (2) and Nicole Moriarty added further scores for Rangers before Legion came back into the game – the visitors scoring 4 points before the break, with Emma Cronin notching another for Rangers. Half Time Score: Laune Rangers 2-9, Legion 0-5.

By the halfway point of the second half, Legion were right back into the game, as they scored two goals soon after the resumption of play. They also added a point, but this was cancelled out by a Ciara O’Brien point following a good team move. Points were again traded between the sides with Nessa Healy scoring for Rangers, before a third Legion goal put just a point between the sides with five minutes to play. Legion now had all the momentum and pointed twice in quick succession to take their first lead of the game with time running out. However, Rachael Evans got her name on the scoresheet (deservedly following a big effort in midfield) to tie the game up with what proved to be the final kick of the game.
