Laune Rangers 1-12, Keel/Listry 1-2

Laune Rangers will contest the Mid Kerry Under 21 Championship Final again in 2020, following defeat of Keel/Listry in JP O’Sullivan Park on Saturday afternoon.

Playing with a strong breeze behind them in the first half, Rangers were ahead by five points after as many minutes – Shane Doona and Fiachra Clifford scoring early points before Shane Doona capitalized on a super Mark O’Connor pass to find the top corner of the net for a super goal. Ronan O’Shea & Eoin Clifford added points for Rangers to leave the hosts ahead by 1-4 to 0-0 with a quarter played.

The trend continued in the 2nd quarter as Shane Doona, Dáire Cleary (free), Fiachra Clifford, Evan Madden and Mark O’Connor all kicked points to leave Rangers in a commanding lead at the break – Keel/Listry struggling against the wind and rain and didn’t register a shot in the opening period. Half Time Score:- Laune Rangers 1-9, Keel/Listry 0-0.

Keel/Listry got onto the scoreboard early in the second half – Barry Keane pointing two frees for his side with the first one in particular catching the eye. Laune Rangers had plenty of possession against the breeze and scored their first point of the second half through a well taken Dáire Cleary free to leave the home side ahead by 1-10 to 0-2 with fifteen minutes to play.

Keel/Listry found the net in the 46th minute as Rangers goalkeeper Jack Evans was caught off his line by a lobbed shot by Barry Keane, but this would be the visitors’ final score of the game. Dáire Cleary scored his third pointed free before a foul on him denied him a goal-scoring chance, saw Cleary leave the field with a knock and his marker receive a black card and sin-bin. Fiachra Clifford scored the final point of the game with a free to see Rangers win by ten. Full Time Score:- Laune Rangers 1-12, Keel/Listry 1-2.

Laune Rangers now move on to the Mid Kerry Under 21 Final hoping to defend the title they won in 2019. They will face Glenbeigh/Glencar/Cromane in the decider following GGC’s win against Milltown/Castlemaine on Saturday.
