The Laune Rangers Senior Ladies Team in Monday evening's County Junior A Championship Semi Final

LOTTO: Lotto Results for Monday, September 14th 2020. There was no winner of the €8,400 jackpot. The numbers drawn were 06 – 16 – 26 – 27. The Consolation Prizes were won by the following: €100 Daryl Corkery – sold by Pat Pigott; €50 Bernie Murphy – sold by Pa Foley; €25 Delores Johnston – standing order; €25 Liam Russell – sold by Kerry. Next week’s Lotto Jackpot will be €8,600.

B TEAM: Laune Rangers made it a clean sweep of their group in the County Junior League with a comprehensive win over neighbours Milltown/Castlemaine in JP O’Sullivan Park. The visitors opened the scoring with a point in the first play, but Ronan O’Shea & Gavin O’Shea both pointed to put Rangers ahead. Milltown/Castlemaine levelled with a point but Rangers took over from there – Colm O’Shea scoring three points (1 free) and Ronan O’Shea tapping into the net to leave the home side ahead by 1-5 to 0-2 at the first half water break. Colm O’Shea added to his tally with a point with Mike Frank Russell splitting the posts soon after, but Milltown scored their first goal soon after to close the gap, as an initial shot was saved well by Vinny Costello before the rebound was tapped in. Gavin O’Shea scored his second point but in doing so, injured himself and was replaced by Matt Leslie. Milltown/Castlemaine added a point before Colm O’Shea tapped in Rangers’ second goal before the short whistle. Half Time Score:- Laune Rangers 2-9, Milltown/Castlemaine 1-3. Colm O’Shea started the second half as he had finished the first – scoring a goal from 1 yard out as he reacted to a Matt Leslie shot that dropped short and knocked the ball in. Mike Frank Russell added a right footed point from 40 yards to two earlier left footed long range scores, but it was cancelled out by a Milltown point. Rangers introduced Pierce Tyther, John Sheehan and Morgan O’Sullivan early in the second half as Cormac Johnston, Mike Frank & Cormac Johnston were called ashore. Milltown scored a second goal before John Sheehan and Cian O’Shea scored excellent points to leave the hosts ahead by 3-12 to 2-4 at the second half water break. Milltown/Castlemaine’s best period of the game came immediately after the water break as they set up camp inside the Rangers 45, but had to settle for just two pointed frees as the Rangers backs wouldn’t budge. A great intercept by Darragh O’Shea marked the end of the Milltown attacking effort as Rangers quickly moved upfield, and a subsequent foul just outside the 45 was kicked over by Cian O’Shea with a great shot from the outside of his left boot. Milltown/Castlemaine scored two late points, but the final score of the game came from Morgan O’Sullivan who turned his man excellently before scoring from a tight angle. Full Time Score:- Laune Rangers 3-14, Milltown/Castlemaine 2-8. Laune Rangers:- Vincent Costello, James Lynch, Cormac Johnston, Darragh O’Shea, James Hurley, Rory O’Connor, Eric Dunlea, Shane Mangan, Patrick Daly, Eamonn Carey, Michael F Russell (0-3), Cian O’Shea (0-2, 1f), Ronan O’Shea (1-1), Colm O’Shea (2-4, 1f), Gavin O’Shea (0-2). Subs: Matthew Leslie, Pierce Tyther, John Sheehan (0-1), Morgan O’Sullivan (0-1)

UNDER 14 BOYS: Laune Rangers Under 14 Boys Blue team proved far too strong for their hosts Glenflesk on Wednesday evening in the final round of group games in the County League Division 1A. Rangers were on top from the first minute, and 60 seconds were barely on the clock when Darragh Clifford smashed the ball to the net for the game’s first goal – the pick up and spin move off his marker were hugely impressive as was the finish. A Conor Buckley point was cancelled out by Glenflesk’s first score before Stephen Gannon slotted a super point. Darragh Clifford followed up with a point from long range, while Logan Foley and Stephen Gannon added points to increase the lead. Logan Foley was rewarded for his industrious effort at wing forward with a goal, while Seán O’Donnell rattled the crossbar to deny him a goal of his own. A pointed free by Conor Buckley saw Laune Rangers head to the first half water break with a 2-6 to 0-1 lead. Glenflesk pointed a free before Rangers scored their third goal – Stephen Gannon with a great finish. Andrew Owens knocked over a point before Gannon added another. Eoin O’Connell had played provider for many of his teammates’ scores and was duly rewarded with a point of his own in the 25th minute, as was Logan Foley who was next to put the ball over the bar with a punched effort. Darragh Clifford scored another from distance, while Stephen Gannon followed up his fourth point with his second goal. Glenflesk scored another free but Rangers had the last say in the half as Conor Buckley scored another point. Half Time Score:- Glenflesk 0-3, Laune Rangers 4-13. Darragh Clifford added to his tally with another point, but Glenflesk finally hit a purple patch. They scored 1-4 without reply before Ryan Carey (free) and Seanie Diggin pointed for Rangers to leave the visitors ahead by 4-16 to 1-7 at the second half water break. Ryan Carey slotted a soccer style shot to the bottom corner of the net for Rangers’ fifth goal of the evening, while Niall Tadhg O’Brien scored his team’s final two points of the game. The home side responded with a late goal and two points of their own before the final whistle. Full Time Score:- Glenflesk 2-9, Laune Rangers 5-18. Laune Rangers:- Patryk Radny, Evan Moriarty, David O’Brien, Matthew Spillane, Seán O’Donnell, Shane Clifford, Dylan Flynn, Charlie O’Sullivan, Niall T O’Brien (0-2), Logan Foley (1-1), Eoin O’Connell (0-1), Stephen Gannon (2-4), Conor Buckley (0-3, 1f), Darragh Clifford (1-3), Andrew Owens (0-1).

UNDER 12 GIRLS: Laune Rangers U12 Girls hosted Firies in the County League on Tuesday, September 8th. In a tough, physical game played in slippery conditions, Firies got the first score, but the Rangers defence held strong for the rest of the half allowing the midfield to win some ball. The forwards started to play better as the game went on, ending the first half ahead. Half Time Score:- Laune Rangers 0-4, Firies 0-3. Rangers were 0-9 to 0-4 ahead in the last quarter when Firies scored 1-2 without reply. Some really good forward play resulted in Rangers getting the final score to win by the minimum. Full Time Score:- Laune Rangers 0-10, Firies 1-6. This was an excellent team effort all round as all the panel of players were required to get the win. Laune Rangers:- Jacqueline Owens, Roisin Lawson, Kate McGeever, Amy Moriarty, Sarah Patton, Sally McGillycuddy, Aoibhinn O'Sullivan, Sarah O'Brien, Niamh O'Sullivan, Zoe Conway, Aisling O'Dwyer, Saoirse O'Shea, Leah Russell, Sophie Donnelly, Erin O'Dwyer, Amy Callan, Ummi Shinohara, Alesha Williams, Lucy Kingston, Aoibhinn Moloney, Riadh O'Sullivan.

B TEAM: Laune Rangers picked up their second win in the County Junior League on Friday evening with a super performance in Tralee against John Mitchels. Cian O’Shea put Rangers ahead with a pointed free, and Mitchels responded with a free of their own before Vinny Costello pulled off a great save to deny a goal. Mitchels pointed another free before Rangers scored their first goal – Shane Mangan with a scorcher of a finish to the top corner following a super run from midfield. John Mitchels responded with a point before Rangers scored a second goal. Gabe Griffin was upended with a shoulder to the chest in the square and a penalty was awarded, with Mike Frank Russell finding the same corner as Mangan with his spot kick to leave Rangers leading by 2-1 to 0-3 at the first half water break. Gabe Griffin scored an excellent point following a run up the left flank, but it was soon cancelled out by a point at the other end for the hosts. Cian O’Shea and Shane Mangan added to their tallies before Rangers hit for a third goal – Eamonn Carey finding Colm O’Shea with a great pass that drew the goalkeeper out from his line and the full forward kept his composure to round a couple of defenders and smash to an empty net. Mitchels added another point before Rangers scored a fourth goal – Ronan O’Shea collecting a good pass from Cian O’Shea before passing the ball across the square to the onrushing wing back James Hurley to tap it in. John Mitchels scored another point at the break to leave a Half Time Score:- John Mitchels 0-6, Laune Rangers 4-4. Senior Team manager John Sheehan – introduced during the first half – scored two outstanding points with the breeze at his back to extend the Rangers lead before John Mitchels pointed another free. Colm O’Shea came close to his second goal after intercepting a wayward kickout, but his attempted lob of the Mitchels goalkeeper was slightly overcooked and the ball clipped the top of the crossbar and bounced over. Cian O’Shea followed up his brother’s point with one of his own to continue the Laune Rangers dominance. The home side pointed again before Rangers scored a fifth goal – Colm O’Shea getting his second as he collected a great pass and rounded the ‘keeper to tap the ball home to leave Laune Rangers leading by 5-8 to 0-8 at the second half water break. The sides scored three points a piece in the final quarter – James Hurley adding to his tally by scoring a deserved point and Eamonn Carey scoring two super scores to complete the scoring. Full Time Score:- John Mitchels 0-11, Laune Rangers 5-11. Due to tight numbers on the night, Laune Rangers bench was made up of the management team. With selector Paul O’Brien already on the field, Paudie O’Shea introduced himself late on to see the Senior Team manager, B Team manager and Minor manager (MF Russell) all to have played in the same game! Laune Rangers:- Vincent Costello, Pierce Tyther, Cormac Johnston, James Lynch, James Hurley (1-1), Kevin Fitzpatrick, Eric Dunlea, Shane Mangan (1-1), Patrick Daly, Eamonn Carey (0-2), Mike Frank Russell (1-0 pen), Gabriel Griffin (0-1), Cian O’Shea (0-3, 1f), Colm O’Shea (2-1), Ronan O’Shea. Subs: John Sheehan (0-2), Paul O’Brien, Paudie O’Shea.

MINOR: Laune Rangers Minor team completed their County League group on Saturday afternoon, and made it three wins out of three with a comprehensive victory over Firies in JP O’Sullivan Park. A great start saw Rangers lead by 1-6 to 0-3 after ten minutes – Eoghan Hassett (3), Gearóid Hassett, Matt Leslie and Marc Clifford all pointing while Gearóid Hassett also scored a super goal. Marc Clifford scored a second goal for Rangers but it was cancelled out by a Firies goal within a minute. Eoghan Hassett nullified a Firies free with a point of his own, before older brother Gearóid hit the net for his second goal before the water break to leave Laune Rangers leading by 3-7 to 1-4 with fifteen minutes played. Firies halved the deficit with their second goal in the 20th minute, but Rangers took over for the rest of the half. Callum Russell, Calum Moriarty, Marc Clifford, Matt Leslie (free) and Rory O’Connor all pointed while Mikey O’Donnell scored his team’s 4th goal with a tap in to leave Rangers in a commanding lead at the break – all six starting forwards and both midfielders all scoring from play in the first period. Half Time Score:- Laune Rangers 4-12, Firies 2-4. Laune Rangers started the second half as they had finished the first, extending their already sizable lead over their opposition. By the 40th minute, Rangers had added a further 2-3 against 0-3 conceded – Eoghan Hassett (2, 1 free) & Matt Leslie pointing while Mikey O’Donnell netted his second goal and Gearóid Hassett completed his hat-trick. A fourth goal for Gearóid Hassett soon came to bring his tally to 4-1 for the day, while Rory O’Connor pointed a free having made several great overhead catches at midfield in the early part of the second half. With fifteen minutes to play, Laune Rangers led by 7-16 to 2-7. With the win well and truly secured, Rangers rang the changes in the final quarter. This had the somewhat expected effect of loosening the cohesion, allowing the visitors to close the gap between the sides. They added 2-3 to their tally (4-10 a scoreline that would win most games) while Rangers added on a couple of late points – Marc Clifford & Calum Moriarty with two excellent points with Moriarty’s in particular just reward for an industrious shift at midfield. Full Time Score:- Laune Rangers 7-18, Firies 4-10. Laune Rangers:- Jake Reenstierna, Patrick Brennan, Seán Cleary, Ciarán O’Sullivan, Darragh Mangan, James Byrne, James Treacy, Rory O’Connor (0-2, 1f), Calum Moriarty (0-2), Matthew Leslie (0-3, 1f), Eoghan Hassett (0-6, 1f), Callum Russell (0-1), Marc Clifford (1-3), Gearóid Hassett (4-1), Mikey O’Donnell (2-0).

UNDER 16 BOYS BLUE: Laune Rangers made the trip to Glenflesk on Monday evening in the first round of Division 1 of the County League, but it was the home team that came out on top in a game of fine margins. John Burke cancelled out an earlier Glenflesk point (free) before the home side scored a goal to take the lead, following it up with another point soon after. Jack O’Sullivan pointed for Rangers before Tom Whittleton scored a great goal to level the game. An Eoghan Hassett free gave Rangers the lead at the first half water break. Two further Eoghan Hassett pointed frees & a point from Tom Whittleton put Rangers four ahead. Glenflesk pointed three successive points (1 free) to leave the minimum between the sides, and they were level by the break when, a quick whistle caught Jack O’Sullivan for overcarrying when through on goal while the same call was not reciprocated at the other end as Glenflesk got the equalizer – a two point swing. Half Time Score:- Glenflesk 1-6, Laune Rangers 1-6. Darragh O’Grady and Eoghan Hassett each cancelled out points for Glenflesk with scores of their own, but Glenflesk went two ahead with a brace of points in quick succession. Eoghan Hassett had a point nullified by a Glenflesk point at the other end, before Darragh O’Grady had a shot at goal saved well by the Glenflesk goalkeeper who forced it over for a point. Rangers were almost level, but a shot that looked to all in attendance like it went over the bar was waved wide by the referee to leave Glenflesk leading by 1-11 to 1-10 at the second half water break. Substitute David Crowley levelled the game in the 52nd minute but Glenflesk scored twice more to regain the two point advantage. Jack O’Sullivan pointed late with a free but Glenflesk got the final score to take the win. Full Time Score:- Glenflesk 1-14, Laune Rangers 1-12. Laune Rangers:- Adam Carey, Aona O’Shea, Eoin Lynch, Killian Spillane, Oisín Birmingham, Ryan Diggin, Cathal O’Callaghan, Ciarán O’Sullivan, John Burke (0-1), Tom Whittleton (1-1), Eoghan Hassett (0-5, 4f), Eoghan Joy, Darragh O’Grady (0-2), Jack O’Sullivan (0-2, 1f), Cillian Foley. Subs: Tim Mangan, David Crowley (0-1), Darragh Evans.

UNDER 16 BOYS WHITE: Laune Rangers Under 16 White team hosted Spa Killarney on Tuesday evening last in Division 5B of the County Leagues. In a highly entertaining, high scoring game, the visitors came out on top, but Rangers did well to hold their own against another club’s ‘A’ Team – Laune Rangers providing the only second team in County competition. Spa had put up 1-2 before Rangers got on the board with a Rian O’Sullivan point. By the quarter mark, the visitors led by 1-6 to 0-4 with David Crowley (free), Darragh Evans & Rian O’Sullivan added the scores for Laune Rangers. David Crowley pointed before Adam Owens his team’s first goal. Spa responded in kind, hitting the net for a goal and adding two points to stretch out in front again before Adam Owens scored his second goal. Spa knocked over the final point of the half to see the score at the break:- Laune Rangers 2-5, Spa Killarney 2-11. A third Spa goal came in the 2nd minute of the second half, as a Rian O’Sullivan point for the Laune was sandwiched between two further points for the visitors. Adam Owens pointed to leave Rangers trailing by 3-13 to 2-7 at the second half water break. Darragh Evans & David Crowley pointed before Evans hit the net for a third Rangers goal, but Spa always had their hosts at arms length on the scoreboard. The visitors scored two further goals and three points with Rangers adding a fourth goal – Adam Owens completing a hat-trick – and pointing through David Crowley (2), Rian O’Sullivan and Adam Owens to leave six between the sides at the final whistle. Full Time Score:- Laune Rangers 4-13, Spa Killarney 5-16. Laune Rangers White:- Patryk Radny, Colin Griffin, Tom Garry, James Prendiville, Senan O’Meara, Tim Mangan, Devon Hogan, Joseph O’Neill, Joseph Cronin Langham, Rian O’Sullivan (0-4), David Crowley (0-5), Oisin Lynch, Darragh Evans (1-2), Cillian Buckley, Adam Owens (3-2). Subs: Jamie Healy, John Tuohy.

UNDER 16 GIRLS: Laune Rangers Under 16 Girls finished their season last Wednesday evening with defeat at Scartaglin. Thanks to the coaches, parents, and most importantly all the players for their efforts this year – not alone during the time back out on the field, but the time they put in during lockdown also.

UNDER 14 BOYS: Memories of the infamous Gerry Murphy goal for Kerry against Tipperary in 1999 came flooding back on Wednesday evening, as a first half phantom goal for home side Austin Stacks proved to be the difference between the teams on the scoreline. Laune Rangers led by 0-3 to 0-0 after four minutes – Conor Buckley ( 2 frees) and Eoin O’Connell scoring points – but Stacks levelled with their first goal in the 5th minute. A Stephen Gannon point for the Laune was soon cancelled out by a point for Stacks before the home side scored their second goal. The defining moment of the game came in the 13th minute, as the young Austin Stacks forward let a rocket of a shot off his boot and, after the ball had flashed outside the post and hit the side netting, amazingly the goal was awarded. Rangers were left reeling but conceded just a single point more before the water break was signalled. A point by Niall Tadhg O’Brien was nullified by a pointed free by Stacks before they struck for a fourth goal, and Darragh Clifford had two excellent points again cancelled out in turn by a brace for Stacks (1 free) before the break. Half Time Score:- Austin Stacks 4-5, Laune Rangers 0-7. Rangers were rejuvenated at the interval, and came out firing in the second half. Conor Buckley pointed a free before scoring his team’s first goal – some quick thinking and excellent accuracy saw him blast a quickly taken free into the top corner of the net. A pointed free for the hosts was soon cancelled out by another Conor Buckley free while points were traded further between Andrew Owens and a Stacks counterpart. Darragh Clifford nearly burst the net with a super goal and, after Stacks had responded by a point, Clifford let fly with another rocket to the top corner of the net – a mirror image of his first goal only this time with his left foot. With a quarter to play, Rangers trailed now by a single point at 4-8 to 3-10. The home side were able to protect their lead in the final quarter – the sweeper they deployed early in the game now collecting any loose ball that went in to Stacks territory. They added three points in succession so that a Conor Buckley pointed free still left a goal between the sides, and when the final whistle was blown it was that ghost goal in the first half that separated the sides. Full Time Score:- Austin Stacks 4-11, Laune Rangers 3-11. Laune Rangers Blue:- Patryk Radny, Seán O’Donnell, Shane Clifford, David O’Brien, Gavin Mangan, Charlie O’Sullivan, Matthew Spillane, Eoin O’Connell (0-1), Niall O’Brien (0-1), Logan Foley, Conor Buckley (1-5f), Seán Diggin, Stephen Gannon (0-1), Darragh Clifford (2-2), Ryan Carey. Subs: Andrew Owens (0-1), Dylan Flynn, Evan Moriarty, Patrick O’Donnell, Alex Garry.

UNDER 14 GIRLS: Laune Rangers Under 14 Girls hosted Killarney Legion on Sunday afternoon. The visitors proved too strong for the Laune Rangers girls on the day, however. Laune Rangers:- Clodagh Lynch, Deirdre O’Sullivan, Amy Kelly, Sadhbh O’Sullivan, Elmarie Lonergan, Isabella Doherty, Megan Gillespie, Holly O’Sullivan, Erin Murphy, Aine Hassett, Lara Hoare, Niamh Moriarty, Aisling O’Connor, Emma Crowley, Aoife Fenton Toms.

SENIOR LADIES: Laune Rangers got the better of Killarney Legion in Direen on Friday evening following a heart-stopping last quarter that went right to the final whistle. Little could separate the sides in the opening stages, and scores were level at 0-4 a piece at the first water break – Kerriann Hanrahan (2), Elizabeth Mohan & Isobelle Corridan scoring for Legion with Ciara O’Brien, Fodhla Houlihan (2) and Rachael Evans pointing at the other end for the visitors. Elizabeth Mohan and Fodhla Houlihan traded points before Alanna Dolan scored Laune Rangers’ first goal. Laura Brennan made a number of saves in the first half, but she was eventually beaten by Isobelle Corridan with a goal to tie the game up once again. There was time for another twist before the break though, as Legion fouled in their own square to concede a penalty. Laune Rangers goalkeeper Laura Brennan also happens to be the penalty specialist, and it was easy to see why as she placed her shot into the top corner with the final kick before the short whistle. Half Time Score:- Killarney Legion 1-5, Laune Rangers 2-5. Elizabeth Mohan & Kerriann Hanrahan scored excellent points to reduce Rangers’ lead to the minimum, before Rangers hit the net for a third time – Fodhla Houlihan with a great finish in traffic. Elizabeth Mohan knocked over a free for Legion before it was cancelled out by a great Fodhla Houlihan point, but Legion were soon level as Kerriann Hanrahan scored Legion’s second goal followed by an Isobelle Corridan point. Legion were now on the ascendancy, as Julie Kelly, Elizabeth Mohan (free) and Isobelle Murphy all kicked points to put the home side ahead by 2-12 to 3-6. As the teams began to tire, the final quarter became a war of attrition but Rangers drove on to grasp victory. When Alanna Dolan was fouled in the square in the 52nd minute, Laura Brennan made the journey upfield from the opposite goal to dispatch her second spot kick to the net and level the game. Both sides were on the hunt for the winner, and in fact both came close to hitting the net with shots flashing wide. Rangers edged ahead in the 61st minute with a Fodhla Houlihan point that flew just over the crossbar denying another goal, but it turned out to be enough as the Laune Rangers defence were defiant under a Legion siege to hold on for the win. Full Time Score:- Killarney Legion 2-12, Laune Rangers 4-7. The trio of Kerriann Hanrahan, Elizabeth Mohan and Isobelle Corridan accounted for all but 0-2 of their team’s total, which was no surprise as they were outstanding for their side. For Rangers, the midfield triumvirate of Kayleigh McGlashan, Rachael Evans and Ciara O’Brien covered serious mileage with Fodhla Houlihan – much like her opposite number Hanrahan – again providing the finishing ability up front. Aside from that, Andrea Nolan was a rock at full back, while Orla Dunphy’s performance both in defence and counter attack stood out on the day.

BEHIND CLOSED DOORS: The following message was received from County Board Chairman Tim Murphy. “The attendance news this week has certainly been very disappointing for all GAA fans. Right from the beginning of the Covid Pandemic, our Kerry clubs, officers, players, parents and mentors have shown tremendous leadership, community spirit and dedication. This has enabled our match program across ages to be played and training sessions held in a monitored and controlled environment. We would ask absolutely everyone involved to continue do everything in their power to abide by all health guidelines and recommendations over the coming weeks. Where Juvenile games are concerned, it is vitally important to abide by the One Parent or Guardian only per child attendance rule ( and that is if it is necessary from a welfare viewpoint). Once inside a ground , social distancing is paramount. Continuing adherence to guidelines means that the GAA family is doing its best to ensure matches and training continue and hopefully in front of attendances in due course.”

B TEAM:- The long awaited County Junior League got underway on Friday evening, as Laune Rangers hosted one of two Dr Crokes teams in the competition. There was plenty of early drama as both sides were awarded penalties in the opening minutes. Both spot kicks were dispatched to the net – Roan Moriarty scoring for Rangers – as a second goal through Mike Frank Russell and points by Russell, Gabriel Griffin (2), Eamonn Carey & Gavin O’Shea (free from mark) had Rangers leading by 2-5 to 1-2 at the first water break. Dr Crokes added a second goal to narrow the gap between the sides, but Rangers kicked on, scoring further points through Mike Frank Russell (2) and Colm O’Shea to lead by seven at the break. Half Time Score:- Laune Rangers 2-10, Dr Crokes 2-3. Roan Moriarty, Mike Frank Russell & Gabriel Griffin in the third quarter, as Crokes began to close the gap with some well taken scores, to leave Rangers leading by 2-13 to 2-7 at the second waterbreak. There were goal chances for both sides as Vinny Costello pulled off a great save in the Laune Rangers goal, while Rangers rattled the crossbar at the other end. Gabriel Griffin (2) and Roan Moriarty pointed three in succession before Crokes replied back with three of their own. However, Laune Rangers would have the last say, when Gabriel Griffin topped off a great performance with a super goal. Full Time Score:- Laune Rangers B 3-16, Dr Crokes ‘Amber’ 2-10. Laune Rangers:- Vincent Costello, Pierce Tyther, Cormac Johnston, Darragh O’Shea, Patrick Carey, Kieran Crowley, James Lynch, Roan Moriarty (1-2, pen), Stephen Sealy, Eamonn Carey (0-2), Michael F Russell (1-4), Gabriel Griffin (1-6), Cian O’Shea, Colm O’Shea (0-1), Gavin O’Shea (0-1f). Subs: Kevin Fitzpatrick, Ronan O’Shea, Shane Mangan, Liam Quirke.

SENIOR LADIES: Laune Rangers and Listowel Emmets played out a cracker of a Ladies Junior Championship match on Monday evening in JP O’Sullivan Park, with spoils shared at the Full Time whistle. Emmets took the lead with a goal by Ella Morris in the 4th minute, and held that lead going to the first half water break – Fodhla Houlihan (3, 1 free) points for Rangers matched by Laura Foley, Ally Buckley and Abby McMahon points for Emmets to give the visitors a 1-3 to 0-3 lead with a quarter played. Ciara O’Brien and Fodhla Houlihan (free) both knocked over points to reduce the gap to the minimum, but Emmets scored a second goal through Aoife Kennelly to stretch into a lead again. A pointed free by Fodhla Houlihan left a goal between the sides. Half Time Score:- Laune Rangers 0-6, Listowel Emmets 2-3. Rangers came out flying at the beginning of the second half – Fodhla Houlihan, Ciara O’Brien & Nessa Healy all pointing to level the game. A pointed free by Abby McMahon for Emmets was cancelled out by another Nessa Healy point to see the sides go into the second half water break all square at 0-10 to 2-4. Zara O’Doherty kicked a point immediately from the restart but Fodhla Houlihan scored her 7th point of the evening to level matters once more. A third Emmets goal by Aoife Kennelly put the visitors in the drivers seat in the 53rd minute, but Rangers took over for the remainder of the game. Kayleigh McGlashan scored an excellent point before Fodhla Houlihan forced an outstanding save from Rachel Mulvihill in the Emmets goal, as it looked to all that the ball was destined for the top corner of the net. Rachael Evans maintained her composure in heavy traffic to knock over a point to leave just a single point between the sides, and Ciara O’Brien ended a fantastic run to score and level the game before the final whistle was blown. Full Time Score:- Laune Rangers 0-14, Listowel Emmets 3-5. Laune Rangers:- Laura Brennan, Aoife Nash Freeman, Christina O’Brien, Lucy O’Donnell, Orla Dunphy, Meadhbh O’Sullivan, Alanna Dolan, Rachael Evans (0-1), Kayleigh McGlashan (0-1), Laura Leslie, Ciara O’Brien (0-3), Hannah McGeever, Orla O’Brien, Fodhla Houlihan (0-7, 3f), Lorna Griffin. Subs: Nessa Healy (0-2), Emma Cronin.

MINOR BOYS: The County Minor League – an U18 competition – returned after a 4 week hiatus on Saturday afternoon, with Laune Rangers making the short trip to Listry to take on Keel/Listry. Marc Clifford kicked the game’s first two points before Ruarí Murphy scored his team’s opening point. A well taken point by Callum Russell for Rangers was answered with another Ruairí Murphy point before Keel/Listry hit the net through Aaron O’Shea to give the home side the lead. Laune Rangers added pointed frees by Gearóid Hassett and Matthew Leslie to level the game, but Ruairí Murphy pointed his third of the afternoon to give the hosts the lead by 1-3 to 0-5 at the first half water break. Keith Evans & Jack Walsh (free) extended the lead for Keel/Listry before creating a second goal chance as Aaron O’Shea rattled the crossbar, while at the other end, Rory O’Connor ended a great run by having his shot saved before being chopped to the ground for what looked like a clear penalty that was waved off. Marc Clifford scored his third point of the game for the visitors, while Eoghan Hassett and Aaron O’Shea traded pointed frees before the break. Half Time Score:- Keel/Listry 1-6, Laune Ranger 0-7. Aaron O’Shea put a goal between the sides as he scored an early point, but that goal was soon found by Rangers as Marc Clifford finished excellently to the net to level matters. Rangers nearly scored a quickfire second goal, but Jack O’Sullivan’s shot to the near post was saved superbly by Gearóid Ladden. Eoghan Hassett scored two quick points following very similar runs from the left flank, but Jack Walsh pointed a free to leave Rangers leading by 1-9 to 1-8 at the second half water break. A Seán Cleary led defence gave Rangers a strong footing, and Gearóid Hassett and Matt Leslie (free) extended Rangers’ lead to three after the water break. However, Keel/Listry scored three in succession to level the game – Jack Walsh (free) and James Dowd (2) with the home side’s scores. Laune Rangers reacted well to being clawed back though, and soon scored their second goal to restore their lead – Gearóid Hassett with a fantastic run forward before passing across the square to Jack O’Sullivan, who claimed the ball well before some nice footwork and finish put the ball in the net. Aaron O’Shea had his pointed free cancelled out by a great Gearóid Hassett score, before late drama saw the ball dropped into the Laune Rangers goalmouth. Callum Russell claimed the ball well to see the game out. Full Time Score:- Keel Listry 1-12, Laune Rangers 2-12. Laune Rangers:- Jake Reenstierna, Patrick Brennan, Matt Reenstierna, Ciarán O’Sullivan, Ryan O’Sullivan, Seán Cleary, James Byrne, Rory O’Connor, Calum Moriarty, Eoghan Hassett (0-3, 1f), Matt Leslie (0-2f), Callum Russell (0-1), Niall Fenton Toms, Gearóid Hassett (0-3, 1f), Marc Clifford (1-3).

UNDER 14 BOYS: Laune Rangers Blue Team made it three wins from three in the County League on Sunday evening with an away victory over Ardfert, which also made them winners of their Phase 1 Group in the competition. Played in terrible weather conditions, the game waited until the 11th minute for its first score – a point for the home side – although Darragh Clifford had a shot at goal saved excellently by the Ardfert goalkeeper in the second minute. Conor Buckley pointed a free for Rangers to level matters in time for the first half water break. Adam O’Neill pointed Rangers ahead before Ardfert knocked over a free in return. From the resulting kickout, Rangers carried out a super move down the left flank to ultimately put Adam O’Neill through on goal and the forward made no mistake in finding the net for a great goal. Excellent points by Seánie Diggin and Darragh Clifford gave Rangers the lead by five at the break. Half Time Score:- Ardfert 0-2, Laune Rangers 1-4. Ardfert pointed a free in the early minutes of the second half but from there, Laune Rangers took over. Stevie Gannon and Darragh Clifford pointed before Adam O’Neill hit the net for a second time. Ardfert pointed another free before points were added by Adam O’Neill, Logan Foley and Stevie Gannon for Rangers. Ardfert scored a goal of their own, but another Stevie Gannon point saw Laune Rangers leading by 2-10 to 1-4 at the second water break. Laune Rangers closed the game out in the final quarter, scoring points through Adam O’Neill, Eoin O’Connell and Ryan Carey before Niall Tadhg O’Brien scored a third Laune Rangers goal in injury time. Full Time Score:- Ardfert 1-4, Laune Rangers 3-13.

INTERMEDIATE CHAMPIONSHIP: Laune Rangers will take their place in the Quarter Finals of the Intermediate Championship following defeat of also qualified Desmonds on Saturday evening in Castleisland. Two early points by John Tyther and Gearóid Hassett got Laune Rangers off to an excellent start, with Tyther adding a pointed free in the sixth minute. A fantastic pointed 45 by David Mangan was followed by a Fiachra Clifford point to leave Rangers leading by 0-5 to 0-0. However, Desmonds managed to get on the board before the water break with points from Graham O’Connor & Danny Hickey to leave the home side trailing by 0-5 to 0-2 with fifteen minutes played. Fiachra Clifford added two well taken points before he and Cian W O’Connor traded frees to leave Rangers leading by 5, while Barry Lynch & Jack O’Connor also exchanged points before the break. Half Time Score:- Castleisland Desmonds 0-4, Laune Rangers 0-9. Desmonds found themselves down to 14 men in the early minutes of the second half, as Denis O’Connor was black carded and sent to the sin bin for ten minutes. This galvanised the home side though, and they soon found the net. Evan Madden was adjudged to have fouled Patrick Hickey in the square as a ball was dropping in and a penalty was awarded. The initial penalty shot was saved excellently by Jason Browne but the rebound fell at the feet of penalty taker Graham O’Connor who tapped the ball to the net. Gearóid Hassett responded with a fisted point for Rangers but – after Barry Lynch had scored an excellent long range point – Desmonds scored a second goal to take the lead. Luka Brosnan completed a long run with a shot, which took a deflection that caught Jason Browne flat-footed. Adam O’Donoghue added a point to leave Desmonds leading by 2-5 to 0-10 at the water break with fifteen minutes to play. Desmonds’ Ryan Maguire was lucky to receive just a yellow card for a cynical foul on Gearóid Hassett as the young forward – while still 40 yards out – had only grass between him and the goal. After four consecutive wides, Laune Rangers regained the lead in the 52nd minute with a super goal. Dáire Cleary dispossessed a Desmonds attacker to knock the ball to David Mangan, who began and finished the move with the ball travelling through Mark O’Connor and Fiachra Clifford in the lead up. Laune Rangers controlled the remainder of the game, as they cut through Desmonds time and again, which left the hosts committing foul after foul. Three pointed frees by John Tyther were intersected by a solitary point by Adam O’Donoghue, while Fiachra Clifford tapped over a free in the dying seconds – Stephen Bartlett having pulled off a super save during an advantage – to give the visitors a four point win. Among the four substitutes introduced by Rangers in the second half was Stephen Sealy, who took the field for his Championship debut. Full Time Score:- Castleisland Desmonds 2-7, Laune Rangers 1-14. Best for Castleisland on the evening were Brian Leonard, Luka Brosnan and Barry Lynch, although a great all round team performance gave Laune Rangers a much deserved win. Mark O’Connor put in his usual energetic display, while Fiachra Clifford led the forward line with great effect. David Mangan was outstanding on the night, his goal a just reward for his efforts. A special mention also goes to Kieran Crowley, who returned from an injury-enforced retirement two and a half years ago. He quickly shook off the 868 day old cobwebs to put in a super display. Castleisland Desmonds:- Stephen Bartlett, Denis O’Connor, Maurice Lynch, Conor O’Shea, Luka Brosnan (1-0), Ryan Maguire, Luke Lyons, Brian Leonard, Maurice Hickey (capt), Patrick Hickey, Barry Lynch (0-2), Danny Hickey (0-1), Adam O’Donoghue (0-2), Cian W O’Connor (0-1), Graham O’Connor (1-1).

UNDER 14 BOYS: Spectators were treated to a fantastic football game on Wednesday evening, as Austin Stacks visited JP O’Sullivan Park in the County Under 14 League with the Laune Rangers Blue side coming out on top. Scores were level at 0-3 a piece after 10 minutes, as early Stacks points were met by scores by Niall O’Brien & Conor Buckley (2 frees). Rangers then hit their stride, and scored four points in succession through Darragh Clifford, Seanie Diggin, Ryan Carey & Conor Buckley (free), as Darragh Clifford was proving too hot to handle at full forward. Stacks, with the wind at their backs, pointed four in succession themselves to level matters before they took the lead with a goal. However, Rangers replied almost immediately with a goal of their own – Stephen Gannon with an excellent finish following great play by Darragh Clifford. Half Time Score:- Laune Rangers 1-7, Austin Stacks 1-7. A lovely Adam O’Neill point was sandwiched between two pointed frees by Stacks in the opening five minutes of the second half, before the visitors added two further points to take a 3 point lead. However, Rangers came alive again, and were ahead by the 45th minute, as Conor Buckley pointed a free – from a foul inside the square with no penalties awarded at this age grade – before Rangers scored their second goal with another excellent finish by Stephen Gannon. Rangers were now in full flow, and the forward division were forcing fouls time and again, with Conor Buckley scoring four consecutive frees to bring his tally to 0-8 from placed ball – one of these from another foul inside the square as Charlie O’Sullivan was brought to the ground as he was about to tap into the net. Adam O’Neill pointed again before Andrew Owens added a brace, with the substitutes really putting their stamp on the game. The final score of the game was a fabulous point, as Darragh Clifford pointed from out wide on the right – a score that sparked a standing ovation from the lucky few in attendance. Full Time Score:- Laune Rangers Blue 2-17, Austin Stacks 1-12. Laune Rangers Blue:- Patryk Radny, Seán O’Donnell, Shane Clifford, David O’Brien, Gavin Mangan, Charlie O’Sullivan, Matthew Spillane, Eoin O’Connell, Niall T O’Brien (0-1), Logan Foley, Conor Buckley (0-8f), Sean Diggin (0-1), Stephen Gannon (2-0), Darragh Clifford (0-2), Ryan Carey (0-1). Subs used: Andrew Owens (0-2), Adam O’Neill (0-2), Aaron Doyle, Evan Moriarty. Laune Rangers White team completed the double in the age grade on Thursday evening, with defeat of Keel/Listry in JP O’Sullivan Park. At the first half water break, Laune Rangers led by 1-5 to 1-1 with goalscorer Adam O’Neill excelling at full forward & the Rangers forwards all in scoring form. By Half Time, Rangers had doubled their advantage as Aaron Doyle, Cathal Moroney (free), Patrick O’Donnell, Patryk Radny (2) and Adam O’Neill (free) all adding to their tallies to give Rangers an eight point lead at the break. Half Time Score:- Laune Rangers 1-11, Keel/Listry 1-3. Andrew Owens, Oran O’Sullivan, Patryk Radny and Adam O’Neill all pointed for Rangers with Keel/Listry scoring three at the other end to leave Rangers ahead by 10 at the second half water break. Keel/Listry rallied late on, scoring two more goals and, were it not for the heroics of Adam Radny in goals, would have added a couple more. However, with Patryk Radny (3, 1 free) & Adam O’Neill (3, 1 free) pointing at the other end, Rangers did enough to record a deserved win. Full Time Score:- Laune Rangers 1-21 White, Keel/Listry 3-6. Laune Rangers White:- Adam Radny, Luke Moriarty, Callum O’Sullivan, Denis McGeever, Callum Russell, Evan Moriarty, Rian Hogan, Alex Garry, Dylan Flynn, Cormac Moriarty, Aaron Doyle, Patrick O’Donnell, Andrew Owens, Adam O’Neill, Cathal Moroney.

INTERMEDIATE CHAMPIONSHIP: A late equalizing wonder point may have cost Laune Rangers the win last week, but this time it was a superb winner from a near impossible angle by John Tyther that decided the tie. The result does – at the very least – secure Intermediate status for Laune Rangers, although management will now set their sights on progressing further in the competition. Laune Rangers held an early advantage, and led by 0-2 to 0-1 in the 9th minute when full forward Shane Daly received a black card for an off the ball incident that was missed by most. The resulting free was scored by Bobby O’Regan to level matters – Dáire Cleary & John Tyther (free) and Ardfert’s David Griffin with the earlier scores. Two young corner forwards Colin Walsh (Ardfert) and Gearóid Hassett traded points before Eoin Clifford restored Rangers’ lead with a super point, as Laune Rangers went into the 1st Half water break with a narrow 0-4 to 0-3 lead. Bobby O’Regan scored an excellent 45’ as the rain began to teem town on JP O’Sullivan Park and, as expansive play became virtually impossible in the conditions, Ardfert captain David Griffin added two points to his tally to give his team the lead at the break. Half Time Score:- Laune Rangers 0-4, Ardfert 0-6. The rain that fell late in the first half and during Half Time began to subside in the second half. Ardfert doubled their advantage with early points through John Egan & Bobby O’Regan (free), but this was nullified with pointed frees from John Tyther and Fiachra Clifford. David Griffin added two more points before Seán Arthurs was sprung from the Rangers bench to mark the full forward, who had five points from play up to that point. Ardfert took a hold of the tie in the 37th minute when Eoghan Courtney smashed his shot to the roof of the Rangers net following good play by Nathan O’Driscoll. This was familiar territory for Rangers – having been 8 behind at the same stage in the previous game – and they went to work to claw away at the deficit. John Tyther kicked two frees with Rangers’ industrious forwards being fouled within scoring range, before Fiachra Clifford scored a fantastic point before the water break. With 15 minutes to play, Ardfert led by 1-10 to 0-9. David Costelloe was introduced in the 53rd minute and caused immediate problems to the Ardfert defence, being fouled on his first touch. John Tyther put the resulting free over the bar – a super shot from the ground – to leave a goal between the sides. Costelloe’s second touch was equally as effective. A great from saw David Mangan find Dáire Cleary who put the substitute through on goal. He was chopped to the ground inside the square – a foul that saw the offending party Trevor Wallace shown the red card and sent to the line. John Tyther kept his cool and hit the net with the penalty kick to level the game at 1-10 a piece with 57 minutes played. Laune Rangers, with the man advantage, were now on the ascendancy. Fiachra Clifford put Laune Rangers ahead in the first additional minute, but David Griffin scored his sixth of the night with a free. There was time for a winner though, and the home side were the team to get it as John Tyther took on a near impossible shot from the dressing room corner of the field with his right boot. Nicky Sullivan despondently directed his eyes upwards as the ball sailed between the posts and, with Rangers gaining possession of the resulting kickout, they held on to the ball until the final whistle was blown. Full Time Score:- Laune Rangers 1-12, Ardfert 1-11. In a hugely exciting game in horrible weather conditions, a few players stood out. Ardfert skipper David Griffin was the go-to man for his team – especially in the first half - scoring six points on the night (5 from play). Goal scorer Eoghan Courtney played well, as did Fionán McKassey. For Laune Rangers, the introductions of David Costelloe up front and Seán Arthurs at the back gave the home side a huge boost – the former causing havoc near goal and being fouled for the penalty, with the latter holding David Griffin to just a pointed free during his 25-odd minutes on the field. Two men stood out for the Laune though – John Tyther & Fiachra Clifford. They shared 1-9 of the team’s 1-12 between them and were outstanding in general play. In the final round of fixtures, Ardfert will host Rathmore with the losing team entering the relegation playoffs, while a Rathmore win will require Rangers to gain at least a point against already qualified Desmonds in Castleisland for a place in the Quarter Finals. Those fixtures will be confirmed by the CCC early in the week. Laune Rangers:- Jason Browne, Evan Madden, Jonathan Carey, Seán Cleary, Eoin Clifford (0-1), David Mangan, Peter Crowley, John Tyther (1-6, pen, 5f), Jack O’Connor, Mark O’Connor, Fiachra Clifford (capt, 0-3, 1f), Shane Mc Sweeney, Gearóid Hassett (0-1), Shane Daly, Dáire Cleary (0-1). Subs:- Roan Moriarty, Patrick Carey, Seán Arthurs, David Costelloe. Ardfert:- Nicky Sullivan, Trevor Wallace, Stephen Leen, Eric Leen, Iarla Courtney, Darren Dineen, Rhys Keane Doyle, Fionán McKassey, Kevin Shanahan, Eoghan Courtney (1-0), Bobby O’Regan (0-3, 2f), Eoghan McElligott, Colin Walsh (0-1), David Griffin (capt, 0-6, 1f), John Egan (0-1). Subs: Nathan O’Driscoll, Jordan Brick, Fionán Horgan.

INTERMEDIATE CHAMPIONSHIP FIXTURE: The final round of fixtures in Group 3 of the Intermediate Championship takes place on Saturday evening, August 8th at 7pm as Castleisland Desmonds host Laune Rangers. Like previous rounds, numbers of attendance will be limited. Live Audio Commentary will be available on our facebook page.

SENIOR LADIES: Well Done to our Senior Ladies who had a great Championship win against John Mitchels on Monday evening. County Junior 'A' Championship Rd 1:- John Mitchels 0-8, Laune Rangers 2-13. Alongside a great scoring display, the defence were immense, led by captain Meadhbh O'Sullivan who was outstanding on the night. Laune Rangers Team:- Laura Brennan, Lucy O'Donnell, Andrea Nolan, Aoife Nash Freeman, Christina O'Brien, Meadhbh O'Sullivan, Alanna Dolan, Rachael Evans, Kayleigh McGlashan, Orla O'Brien, Ciara OBrien, Orla Dunphy, Nessa Healy, Fodhla Houlihan, Hannah McGeever.

MINOR BOYS: There was disappointment on Monday evening as Laune Rangers exited the County Minor Championship in the first round at the hands of Mid Kerry. Laune Rangers had held a six point lead after 3 minutes of the second half, but the strength in depth of the collective in the Divisional Team eventually ran through to win comfortably. Indeed, any advantage a club team may usually have by having played together all year before the Championship was, for obvious reasons, not in play this season as this was the first competitive game this U17 side had played since 2019. Eoghan Hassett opened the scoring with an impressive long range free in the opening minute, before Shane Evans levelled the game for Mid Kerry. Laune Rangers suffered a huge blow after five minutes when Callum Russell departed the game with an eye injury, as Conor Spillane soon kicked Mid Kerry ahead with a pointed free. However, Eoghan Hassett pointed twice (1 free) to leave Rangers ahead by 0-3 to 0-2 at the quarter-mark water break. Conor Spillane and Eoghan Hassett traded frees before Keith Evans levelled the game at 0-4 a piece. Rangers’ best period of the game came late in the first half, with Darragh O’Grady, Eoghan Hassett (2, 1 free) and Marc Clifford all pointing – the latter with a super score off the outside of the right boot. Conor Spillane scored another pointed free just before the break to leave three between the sides. Half Time Score:- Laune Rangers 0-8, Mid Kerry 0-5. Spillane and Hassett traded frees before Calum Moriarty hit the net for a great goal. This put Laune Rangers ahead by six points, but that was as good as it got for them as they wouldn’t score for the next 23 minutes. Points by Conor Spillane (5, 4 frees) and Dylan Moriarty levelled the game as Rangers were committing fouls within close range of goal. Within minutes the tie was over as a contest. Laune Rangers were penalised somewhat harshly for an overcarry, before Mid Kerry broke downfield and hit the net for a goal through Mikey Moriarty, as Matt Reenstierna also received a second yellow card and was sent off. A second goal would come soon after to give Mid Kerry a six point lead with a man advantage. Heading into the water break, Mid Kerry led by 2-12 to 1-9. Conor Spillane (2, 1f), Shane Evans, Cillian Burke, Kieran Dennehy (2) & Seán Quirke all added points as Mid Kerry tore through the downbeat Rangers, before Rangers finally returned to scoring ways with a pointed Eoghan Hassett free. Hassett was then fouled inside the square for a penalty – an act that saw Anthony Kelliher dismissed for a second yellow card offence. The spot kick was initially saved by the feet of Jack McGillicuddy, but Hassett reacted quickest and he brought down the ball and stuck it to the net. Conor Spillane added another tap-over free before Marc Clifford scored two well taken points. Kieran Dennehy added a point, before Conor Spillane kicked his 13th point of the night – the 10th from dead ball. On the night, all three clubs taking part in Round 1 were defeated by their Divisional opponents as Austin Stacks (by South Kerry) & Dr Crokes (by Feale Rangers) were also eliminated from the competition, leaving Legion and Firies (both received byes into Round 2) as the only remaining club teams in the competition. Laune Rangers:- Jake Reenstierna, Patrick Brennan, Matt Reenstierna, Daniel Evans, Ryan Diggin, Darragh Mangan, Ciarán O’Sullivan, Calum Moriarty (capt, 1-0), James Byrne, Darragh O’Grady (0-1), Eoghan Hassett (1-8, 6f), Callum Russell, Marc Clifford (0-3), Jack O’Sullivan, Mikey O’Donnell. Subs: James Treacy for Russell, John Burke for O’Donnell, Eoin Lynch for Evans, Jack Healy for O’Grady, Cathal Crowley for Brennan. Mid Kerry:- Jack McGillicuddy, Anthony Kelliher, Diarmuid McGillicuddy, Jack Teahan, Ruairí Dorrian, Tim Casey, Shane Evans (0-2), Keith Evans (capt, 0-1), Cillian Burke (0-1), Tadhg Evans, Kieran Dennehy (0-3), Mikey Moriarty (2-0), Conor Spillane (0-13, 10f), Dylan Moriarty (0-1), Patrick O’Sullivan. Subs: Jason O’Connor, Lachlan Griffin, Liam Joy, Seán Quirke (0-1).

UNDER 16 BOYS: A familiar rivalry was restored on Monday evening as Laune Rangers hosted Glenflesk in the County Under 16 League. These two teams contested the two main Finals at the U14 age grade in 2018 – Glenflesk winning the County League Division 1 title with Rangers claiming the Féile crown. Rangers got off to a great start and led by 1-3 to 0-0 in the opening minutes, as Oisín Birmingham hit the net for a goal to accompany points by Jack O’Sullivan and Eoghan Hassett (2). Glenflesk got into the game then though, and outscored Rangers 0-4 to 0-1 (Eoghan Hassett) in the remainder of the first quarter to leave the hosts leading by a goal at the 15 minute water break – Laune Rangers 1-4, Glenflesk 0-4. Glenflesk scored the next point but Rangers then hit six in succession to take a commanding lead – Ciarán O’Sullivan, Jack O’Sullivan, Tom Whittleton, Darragh O’Grady, Cillian Foley & Eoghan Joy all pointing for the Laune. Another Glenflesk point temporarily stalled the Rangers momentum but further points by Eoghan Joy and Darragh O’Grady gave their side the lead by nine at the break. Half Time Score:- Laune Rangers 1-12, Glenflesk 0-6. Laune Rangers continued to impress, scoring three points in the opening five minutes of the second half – Oisín Birmingham, Jack O’Sullivan and Eoghan Hassett with the scores – before this was nullified by Glenflesk’s first goal, while they added a further point to reduce the gap to eight points. Jack O’Sullivan pointed for Rangers to leave his side leading by 1-16 to 1-7 at three quarter mark water break. A point by substitute Oisín Lynch for Rangers was sandwiched between a brace by the visitors, but Rangers scored twice more through Darragh O’Grady and Eoghan Hassett to leave them nine ahead with time up. Glenflesk scored two late goals to bring the sides closer on the scoreboard, but Rangers did enough to claim the win. Full Time Score:- Laune Rangers 1-19, Glenflesk 3-9. Laune Rangers Team:- Adam Carey, Aona O’Shea, Eoin Lynch, Killian Spillane, Oisín Birmingham (1-1), Ryan Diggin, Cathal O’Callaghan, Ciarán O’Sullivan (0-1), John Burke, Tom Whittleton (0-1), Eoghan Hassett (0-5), Eoghan Joy (0-2), Darragh O’Grady (0-3), Jack O’Sullivan (0-4), Cillian Foley (0-1).
