Keel 0-11, Laune Rangers 2-9

Laune Rangers picked up their second win of the Mid Kerry League campaign on Sunday afternoon with an away victory against Keel. Much like last week, Rangers rested their U21 contingent that played the previous day from Sunday’s starting team, providing the opportunity to give a large number of the Senior squad significant game time across the weekend.

Keel led in the early stages with two frees scored by Aaron Murphy. However, Rangers began put some good play together and were level by the 7th minute with two well taken points by Kieran Doona. Cillian Dowd put the hosts ahead again before a pointed free by Colm O’Shea levelled matters at 0-3 a piece with a quarter played.

Rangers took the lead in the 22nd minute as David Costelloe snuck in and – when a ball broke in his favour – was left one on one with Keel goalkeeper Stephen Cahillane and finished to the net. Cian Flynn and Aaron Murphy (free) points was a good response for Keel, but a good move for Rangers saw great passes from Johnny Carey to Michael O’Sullivan to Colm O’Shea who scored the last point of the first period. Half Time Score:- Keel 0-5, Laune Rangers 1-4.

Keel were level three minutes after the restart with two Aaron Murphy points – the first coming from the new offensive mark rule. However, Laune Rangers pushed on from here and dominated possession for the remainder of the first quarter. Kieran Doona, Shane Mc Sweeney and Patrick Daly pointed before McSweeney hit the net for Rangers second goal to leave Rangers leading by 2-7 to 0-7 with fifteen minutes to play.

Patrick Daly and Aaron Murphy twice traded points to keep the six point gap between the sides, but Murphy kicked his 8th point of the game from a free and Tom Ladden pointed with the last kick of the game. Full Time Score:- Keel 0-11, Laune Rangers 2-9.
