Glenbeigh/Glencar defeat Laune Rangers in Mid Kerry League

Laune Rangers 2-9, Glenbeigh/Glencar 1-15

A more experienced Glenbeigh/Glencar outfit defeated Laune Rangers in the Mid Kerry Senior League this St Patricks morning, as a strong third quarter for the visitors saw them take the win in Killorglin.

Scores were level after ten minutes at 0-1 a piece as Gavan O’Grady and John O’Shea traded frees, but on the quarter mark, Rangers had taken a four point lead – Gavan O’Grady pointing for Glenbeigh before David Costelloe struck for the first goal of the game, while Costelloe and Jack O’Connor added points to see Rangers lead by 1-3 to 0-2 with 15 minutes played.

However, during an end to end period of the game, Glenbeigh/Glencar had taken the lead themselves by the 19th minute – Fergal Griffin & Jack Brosnan pointing before Gavan O’Grady found the top corner of the net for a great goal. Tommy Cahill increased the lead for the visitors before frees by Colm O’Shea & John O’Shea levelled matters by the 28th minute. Late points for Glenbeigh/Glencar through Tommy Cahill & Kieran Courtney gave the away side the lead at the break. Half Time Score:- Laune Rangers 1-5, Glenbeigh/Glencar 1-7.

Glenbeigh/Glencar dominated the third quarter and scored five unanswered points – Gavan O’Grady, Jason McKenna, Tommy Cahill (free), Micheal Breen and Fergal Griffin with the scores – to open up a seven point lead by the 41st minute. Substitute Dáire Cleary scored his first point at Senior level while Colm O’Shea added a well taken long range point to leave Rangers trailing by 1-7 to 1-13 with a quarter to play.

Laune Rangers played much better in the final 15 minutes. A Colm O’Shea free was followed by Rangers’ second goal of the game, as Shane Mangan finished to the net to reduce the deficit to just two points with 9 minutes to play. However, Glenbeigh held on, and midfielder Fergal Griffin added his fourth and fifth points of the game with Colm O’Shea pointing a free at the other end. Full Time Score:- Laune Rangers 2-9, Glenbeigh/Glencar 1-15.

Best for Rangers on the day were Carey brothers Jonathan & Patrick as well as Cormac Doyle who made his first Senior start for the club & David Costelloe who was lively until his withdrawal after picking up a knock.

For Glenbeigh/Glencar, the ever reliable Gavan O’Grady was clinical in front of the posts, while Tommy Cahill and Colin McGillicuddy put in their usual strong performances. However, the stand out player on the day was Fergal Griffin, who contributed five points from midfield.
