The Intermediate Championship got underway on Saturday evening for Laune Rangers and Glenbeigh/Glencar, and it was the more experienced Glenbeigh side that came out on top in the game played in Beaufort.

Glenbeigh/Glencar got the ideal start as Darran O’Sullivan pointed a free shortly after the throw in, before Kieran Courtney struck the net for a goal in the 5th minute.

Laune Rangers came within an inch of scoring a goal to stem the tide, but David Costelloe’s shot from close range rattled the crossbar and rebounded to safety. Tommy Cahill & Jack O’Connor traded points to leave Glenbeigh leading by seven points at the break. Half Time:- Laune Rangers 0-3, Glenbeigh/Glencar 1-7.

Laune Rangers were denied from another goal chance in the first play of the second half as Fiachra Clifford forced a save from Rory O’Connor. John Tyther added a point but Rangers were dealt a blow as Glenbeigh scored their second goal with through Colin McGillycuddy. Rangers added points with frees from Dáire Cleary & Jason Browne, while Shane Doona and David Mangan were introduced for their Senior debuts.
