Laune Rangers 3-1, Austin Stacks 0-6

Laune Rangers Minors got their season off to a winning start on Saturday afternoon, defeating Austin Stacks at home in weather conditions that matched some of the recent storms that hit the area. Before the game was played, a moment’s silence was observed for the late Timmy Sheehan, Austin Stacks stalwart & local sports journalist who passed away suddenly on Tuesday evening.

Austin Stacks – with the wind and rain at their backs – were two points up in the first five minutes, but had to wait until the 24th minute for their third as playing conditions were visibly difficult for both sides. Gearóid Hassett scored Rangers’ first point from a free taken off the ground into the wind, before taking the lead just before the break with an excellent goal scored by Rangers midfielder Calum Moriarty. Half Time Score:- Laune Rangers 1-1, Austin Stacks 0-3.

Stacks pointed early in the second half before Rangers scored a second goal through Mikey O’Donnell. Stacks responded by scoring another point before Rangers struck the hammer blow by netting their third goal through Matt Leslie. A sixth Stacks point was added but Rangers held on to secure an opening day win.  Full Time Score:- Laune Rangers 3-1, Austin Stacks 0-6.
