SENIOR: Outscored, outpaced, and simply outclassed. Laune Rangers suffered a heavy defeat in the Intermediate Championship at the hands of one of the pre-tournament favourites Templenoe on Saturday evening, leaving them facing a relegation playoff Semi Final scenario for a second successive season. Templenoe led by 2-2 to 0-0 with fifteen minutes played as Rangers struggled to rise to the pace of a team that have been soldiering together for a number of years with Kerry players Tadhg Morley, Gavin Crowley as well as Spillane brothers Adrian & Killian Spillane all in excellent form. John Tyther and Dáire Cleary finally got Rangers on the board with well taken points while Shane McSweeney added another, but Templenoe did not ease up, adding a third goal. Fiachra Clifford pointed a super effort from an acute angle but Templenoe continued to turn the screw. Half Time Score:- Laune Rangers 0-4, Templenoe 3-6. Shane McSweeney (2) & Fiachra Clifford (free) added further points in the second half, but Templenoe pressed on, adding two more goals on the way to inflict a comprehensive defeat on their hosts. Full Time Score:- Laune Rangers 0-7, Templenoe 5-13. Laune Rangers now take on Spa Killarney in Tiernaboul next weekend, needing a 14 point winning margin against their hosts to avoid finishing bottom of the group.

MINOR: Laune Rangers will contest this year’s County Minor League Division 1 Final following defeat of Rathmore in a fantastic battle in JP O’Sullivan Park on Sunday evening. Rathmore opened the scoring with a point in the second minute, but Rangers had the ideal response, as Gabriel Griffin scored a super goal with a finish to the top corner. A pointed free by Ronan O’Shea was sandwiched between Rathmore points to leave Rangers leading by 1-1 to 0-3 with fifteen minutes played. Matt Leslie pointed a free for Rangers, but the visitors struck form in the second quarter. They scored three consecutive points to take the lead and, after Ronan O’Shea had pointed a free at the other end, they capitalized on a mistake at the back to hit the back of the net for a goal and a deserved lead at the break. Half Time Score:- Laune Rangers 1-3, Rathmore 1-6. David Mangan scored a fantastic point to open the second half scoring, and Matt Leslie added a free shortly after. Rathmore scored a point, before Laune Rangers scored their second goal of the game – David Mangan tripped in the square for a penalty and Eoin Clifford dispatching low to the corner to give Rangers the lead. After Ronan O’Shea had added a free, Rathmore kicked three points (2 frees) in quick succession to wrestle the lead back by the minimum. With fifteen minutes to play, Rathmore led by 1-10 to 2-6. Rathmore doubled their lead with another point but Rangers finished strongest. The introduction of Eoghan Hassett into the Rangers forward line caused trouble for the Rathmore defence and they were forced into fouling time and again. Matt Leslie & Ronan O’Shea (2) kicked frees to swing the lead back in the home side’s favour, but Rathmore levelled again with a free in injury time. There was time for a decisive score though, and another foul on the right flank afforded Ronan O’Shea the chance to win the game for Rangers, and he made no mistake in slotting his sixth pointed free. Full Time Score:- Laune Rangers 2-10, Rathmore 1-12. Laune Rangers will face Killarney Legion in the County Division 1 Final with hopes of retaining the trophy won in 2018.

UNDER 16 BOYS: Laune Rangers Under 16 Blue & White Teams both picked up wins in their respective Central Region Divisions on Monday evening. In Division 1, the Blue side registered a great away victory over Austin Stacks in Connolly Park, Tralee. Eoghan Hassett pointed the first score of the game but Austin Stacks went on a kick three unanswered to lead by 0-3 to 0-1 with a quarter played. However, Rangers were the better team in the second quarter as Eoghan Hassett (4 frees) & Ciarán O’Sullivan pointed with Stacks adding one at the other end – Rangers defence getting the upper hand with Cathal Crowley & Matt Reenstierna particularly impressive. Half Time Score:- Austin Stacks 0-4, Laune Rangers 0-7. Austin Stacks opened the scoring in the second half with a pointed free but Rangers replied with a super goal finished excellently by Marc Clifford. Darragh Mangan had carried a knock into the second half but he certainly didn’t show it, gaining superiority at midfield alongside Calum Moriarty, and this allowed Rangers push forward and score five points without reply through Callum Russell (2, 1 free), Calum Moriarty, Jack Healy & Adam Owens. Healy’s point was the pick of these scores in a period where Rangers also produced two more goal chances only to see Stacks goalkeeper Ben Quilter save excellently. Austin Stacks pointed twice more but Rangers didn’t relent, scoring five more points through Eoghan Hassett (2), Ciarán O’Sullivan, Jack O’Sullivan and Callum Russell. Full Time Score:- Austin Stacks 0-7, Laune Rangers 1-17.

In Kenmare, a tight first half saw Rangers score a late point to go into the break leading by the minimum at 2-6 to 2-5. However, Rangers were too strong for their hosts in the second half and a great performance saw them win comfortably in the end. Full Time Score:- Kenmare 2-6, Laune Rangers 3-16.

UNDER 14 BOYS FÉILE: Laune Rangers exited Féile Peile na nÓg at the 1st Round stage this afternoon in Connolly Park, Tralee. However, it needed a free-kick shootout between Rangers and Dr Crokes to separate the sides at the end of the afternoon . A very strong wind was a major player in proceedings on the day as Laune Rangers, Dr Crokes & hosts Austin Stacks battled it out as Moyvane withdrew from the competition at late notice. Austin Stacks defeated Rangers in the first game as they built up a lead with the breeze in the first half that Rangers weren’t able to claw back. FT:- Austin Stacks 3-2, Laune Rangers 1-1. Colin Griffin with the goal and John Tuohy pointing in the first game. Rangers played Crokes in game 2, and the game finished level in a draw. Laune Rangers 3-1, Dr Crokes 2-4. A Dara Clifford hat-trick and Conor Buckley point putting the scores on the board for Rangers. Austin Stacks defeated Dr Crokes in game 3 to progress to the Semi finals, leaving Laune Rangers and Crokes to play off again in two five minute halves. The sides were level again at 2-2 a piece on the final whistle – Conor Buckley (1-1), Tom Garry (1-0) & Jack Lynch scoring for Rangers – which left the sides taking part in a free taking competition to find a winner.

SENIOR: 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. Rangers got into the game and had halved the deficit by the quarter mark – Fiachra Clifford pointing two frees to leave Glenbeigh/Glencar leading by 1-1 to 0-2 with fifteen minutes played. Glenbeigh extended their lead with points from Shane Riordan, Caolim Teahan (2), Pa Kilkenny, & Darran O’Sullivan (free) to go ahead by 1-6 to 0-2, but lost Fergal Griffin to a black card in this period. 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.

Rangers added points with frees from Dáire Cleary & Jason Browne, while Shane Doona and David Mangan were introduced for their Senior debuts. With fifteen minutes to play, Glenbeigh/Glencar led by 2-7 to 0-6. Laune Rangers were unable to reduce the gap in the final quarter as Glenbeigh matched them score for score – David Costelloe and Dáire Cleary (free) points cancelled out by Darran O’Sullivan (free) and Caolim Teahan. Full Time Score:- Laune Rangers 0-8, Glenbeigh/Glencar 2-9.

MINOR: Laune Rangers have secured a home Semi Final in the County Minor League Division 1 following a draw in the fifth and final round against Dr Crokes on Saturday afternoon. Dr. Crokes started the stronger with a pointed free from corner forward Seán McGann in the 4th minute. A long range effort from Michael Lenihan saw the visitors lead 0-02 to no score with 8 minutes of the first half played. On the restart Laune Rangers’ Roan Moriarty joined with Callum Moriarty to send the ball goal bound, the ball was fumbled but Rangers’ Roan Moriarty got a touch on it and sent it to the back of the Dr. Crokes net to swing the lead in the home side’s favour 1-00 to 0-02. Dr. Crokes replied with two further points from McGann in the 9th and 11th minutes as well as another point from Padraic Looney to give the visitors the lead once more, 1-00 to 0-05. Dr. Crokes pounced for their first goal of the afternoon in the 14th minute of the opening half when Gary O’Connor linked well with Lorcan Martin who saw his shot drop short, Dr. Crokes were alert in the inside line and the ball was finished to the back of the Laune Rangers net extending Crokes’ lead, 1-00 to 1-05. Shane Doona got one back for the home side in mid-way through the first half but Dr. Crokes popped up for their second goal in the 16th minute, Seán McGann finding Cian McMahon who made no mistake in firing the ball past Jack Evans in the Laune Rangers goal to let the score 1-01 to 2-05 in Dr. Crokes’ favour. A pointed free from Laune Rangers’ Matthew Leslie was cancelled out by a Harry Potts effort for Dr. Crokes in the 19th minute of the first half. Two final points for Laune Rangers from Calum Russell in the 24th minute and Matthew Leslie in the 28th minute saw the score stand at 1-04 to 2-06 at the short whistle. Laune Rangers hit a purple patch on the restart with a pointed free from Matthew Leslie in the 4th minute as well as an effort from James Hurley in the 6th minute to let a goal between the sides, 1-06 to 2-06. A free for Dr. Crokes converted by Seán McGann saw the visitors extend their lead once more in the 12th minute before a pointed 45’ from Rangers’ David Mangan reduced the deficit in the 14th minute of the second half. The Laune Rangers backline were working well at this stage and a cross field ball fell nicely to Ronan O’Shea who levelled the game at 2-07 a piece mid-way through the second half making for an exciting final quarter. Dr. Crokes Gary O’Connor pushed the visitors ahead once more in the 17th minute with a well taken point. O’Connor saw his shot ricochet off the crossbar soon after – a let off for the home side. Seán McGann added to his tally in the 23rd minute with a pointed free after Jason Kerins was fouled. This was cancelled out by a converted free from Matthew Leslie in the 25th minute to let the minimum between the sides. Laune Rangers’ Shane Doona levelled the game once more in the 29th minute just before Ronan O’Shea pushed the home side ahead with a minute of normal time to play. A point from full forward Gearóid Hassett saw Laune Rangers two points ahead in the 31st minute, 2-11 to 2-09. A stoppage for an injury saw the game continue and the battle continued! A goal for Dr. Crokes’ in the 37th minute gave the visitors a life line as the lead swung once more 3-09 to 2-11. There was still time for one last attack however and when Laune Rangers were awarded a free in the 39th minute, Gearóid Hassett made no mistake. Final score, Laune Rangers 2-12, Dr Crokes 3-09.

SENIOR: Laune Rangers maintained their good start to the season with victory over Skellig Rangers in Portmagee on Sunday afternoon. Laune Rangers got off to a great start, scoring the first four points of the game – Dáire Cleary with two well taken frees while Kieran Doona & Jack O’Connor kicked excellent points from distance. Skellig Rangers got on the board with a pointed free through Darragh O’Sullivan, but Fiachra Clifford slotted a placed ball over the ball soon afterwards to leave the Laune ahead by 0-5 to 0-1 with a quarter played. Skellig Rangers got back into the game with two more pointed frees by Darragh O’Sullivan before John Tyther extended the Rangers lead. David Costelloe was extremely unlucky to hit the upright with an attempt at goal, but the Laune did well to recycle the ball and Kieran Doona kicked it between the posts to put the Killorglin men ahead by 0-7 to 0-3. However, the hosts were afforded the chance to get back into the tie again before the break, as Brendan Murphy was fouled in the square by Cormac Johnston for a penalty. Darragh O’Sullivan made no mistake with the spot kick, putting the ball into the top corner to leave the minimum between the sides at the short whistle. Half Time Score:- Skellig Rangers 1-3, Laune Rangers 0-7. Laune Rangers begun the second half in ideal fashion. A great interception at the back by Conor Murphy fed Darragh O’Sullivan who put Kieran Doona in on goal with a great pass, and Doona passed laterally to Shane McSweeney who tapped the ball into the net. Patrick Carey added a super point before goalkeeper Jason Browne came upfield to score a long range point from the ground. Dáire Cleary hit the net for the visitors second goal, but it was soon cancelled out by the home side, as Darragh O’Sullivan smashed the ball to the net for his team’s only score from play in the game. With fifteen minutes to play, Laune Rangers led by 2-9 to 2-3. The final quarter was a low scoring manner as both sides hit wides. Darragh O’Sullivan pointed another free for Skellig, but Patrick Carey restored the six point gap with the game’s final score. Full Time Score:- Skellig Rangers 2-4, Laune Rangers 2-10. Laune Rangers led from start to finish in this game. Best for Skellig Rangers on the day was Darragh O’Sullivan, who got all of his side’s scores. Laune Rangers had seven U21s in their starting team, and the team played well as a unit. Best for the Laune and the stand out player on the day was full back Conor Murphy who was a colossus in front of his own goal. Laune Rangers had a supporters bus travelling to Portmagee on the day, which provided great support to the team and the bus made a stop in Portmagee before setting off for home. The supporters bus will be making the trip to the away County League games this year, and all supporters are welcome!

SENIOR FIXTURE: Laune Rangers will take on Glenbeigh/Glencar in Round 1 of the Intermediate Championship. The game will take place in Beaufort on Saturday, 6th April at 6pm

MINOR: Laune Rangers have secured a place in the Semi Finals of the County Minor League Division 1 following defeat of Na Gaeil in Round 4 of the League in JP O’Sullivan Park on Saturday afternoon. The game was played at 13 a side at the request of Na Gaeil, and the Tralee side looked more comfortable playing in that format in the early exchanges. Matt Leslie scored the first point of the game for Rangers, but Na Gaeil pointed twice to take the lead. However, a super James Hurley point levelled matters again. After Gearóid Hassett pointed to cancel out a Na Gaeil score, Laune Rangers went on to kick four wides in a row as they struggled to convert their dominance in possession to the scoreboard. With fifteen minutes played, the sides were level at 0-3 a piece. After Gearóid Hassett had added a point, Rangers finally put their stamp on the game when, after Ronan O’Shea had intercepted a Na Gaeil pass, David Mangan found Gearóid Hassett with a great long pass. Hassett set off on a mazy run towards goal, before unselfishly passing to Shane Doona who finished well to the net for a goal. Na Gaeil replied with a pointed free, but Shane Doona cancelled it out with a well taken point of his own. The visitors added two more pointed frees but Rangers finished the half strongly – two goal chances were created but the Na Gaeil (and Kerry Minor) goalkeeper Devon Burns was equal to both. Gabe Griffin saw his shot saved before Gearóid Hassett’s shot was forced over the bar by his county team mate. Half Time Score:- Laune Rangers 1-6, Na Gaeil 0-6. Callum Russell and Matt Leslie (free) extended Rangers’ lead in the opening two minutes of the second half – a fantastic diagonal pass by Gearóid Hassett picking out Russell for his score. A Na Gaeil point was nullified by a well taken score by Shane Doona while the sides traded points again (Matt Leslie free for Rangers) soon after. Rangers continued to create chances with great kick passing a regular feature of the performance on the day, and Gearóid Hassett rattled the crossbar with a great effort as the rebound fell to Shane Doona who saw his shot saved well again by Burns. Na Gaeil went straight downfield to score a goal on the counter attack, which left just two points between the sides at 1-10 to 1-8 with a quarter to play. However, Rangers responded excellently and had scored two more points within 90 second of conceding the goal – Leslie and Doona adding to their tallies. Na Gaeil would add another point before the end of the game, but a brace of points from Roan Moriarty ensured the win for Rangers. Full Time Score:- Laune Rangers 1-14, Na Gaeil 1-9. Laune Rangers Team:- Jack Evans, Seán Cleary, Evan Madden, Ronan O’Shea, James Hurley (0-1), David Mangan, Rory O’Connor, Roan Moriarty (0-2), Callum Russell (0-1), Gabriel Griffin, Matthew Leslie (0-4, 2f), Gearóid Hassett (0-3), Shane Doona (1-3). Subs: Calum Moriarty for Russell, Darragh Mangan for Hurley, Marc Clifford for Griffin, Matthew Reenstierna for R Moriarty.

SENIOR LADIES: Laune Rangers Senior Ladies got their season underway on Bank Holiday Monday afternoon with a trip to Fossa in the County League. Laune Rangers got off to a great start as Rachael Evans scored an excellent point, while Amy Dunphy hit the net for a super goal. Rachael Evans added another well taken point to leave Rangers ahead by 1-2 to 0-0 with fifteen minutes played. Fossa got on the scoreboard with two points (1 free), but Amy Dunphy added a brace for Rangers to restore the five point lead. Fodhla Houlihan struck for Rangers’ second goal in the 23rd minute, and Nicole Moriarty slotted two frees in quick succession to give Rangers a commanding lead but Fossa managed to add another two points before the break. Half Time Score:- Fossa 0-4, Laune Rangers 2-6. Fossa upped their performance at the beginning of the second half and scored 4 unanswered points to halve the deficit, while Laura Brennan pulled off a great save that proved crucial as it would have left just a point between the sides had it been scored. Rangers third goal came in the 42nd minute through Fodhla Houlihan to stem the tide. With fifteen minutes to play, Laune Rangers led by 3-6 to 0-8. Fossa responded with a point but the third Rangers goal seemed to take the wind out of Fossa’s sails somewhat. They went on to add five points without reply – Ciara O’Brien, Fodhla Houlihan, Meadhbh O’Sullivan, Amy Dunphy & Nessa Healy all scoring to secure a fantastic win. Full Time Score:- Fossa 0-9, Laune Rangers 3-11. Laune Rangers Team:- Laura Brennan, Aoife Nash Freeman, Kayleigh McGlashan, Christina O’Brien, Orla Dunphy, Andrea Nolan, Meadhbh O’Sullivan (0-1), Ciara O’Brien (0-1), Rachael Evans (0-2), Hannah McGeever, Claire Fealey, Nicole Moriarty (0-2), Fodhla Houlihan (2-1), Amy Dunphy (1-3), Lorna Griffin.

UNDER 21: Laune Rangers are Mid Kerry Under 21 Champions for 2019, following defeat of Glenbeigh/Glencar/Cromane in a hugely exciting Final played in Cromane on Monday afternoon. The game was originally scheduled to be played in Beaufort, but it was ruled unplayable and a coin-toss decided GGC had home advantage on the day. Playing against a strong breeze in the first half, Laune Rangers started the brighter and were ahead by 0-4 to 0-1 after ten minutes – Dara Casey putting GGC ahead before Dáire Cleary, Shane Doona, Patrick Daly (free) and Fiachra Clifford (free) pointed for Rangers. GGC got back into the game with points from Adrian O’Connor and Caolim Teahan (free) to leave Rangers ahead by 0-4 to 0-3 with fifteen minutes played. Points by Liam Roche & Caolim Teahan (free) gave the hosts the lead by the minimum at the break. Half Time Score:- Glenbeigh/Glencar/Cromane 0-5, Laune Rangers 0-4. As so often happens, the wind that had favoured GGC in the first half calmed considerably before and during the break, and there was little in the way of a breeze behind Rangers for the second period. Laune Rangers levelled matters with a Fiachra Clifford free, only Caolim Teahan to nudge GGC ahead. A Dáire Cleary point was cancelled out by an Adrian O’Connor free, and Caolim Teahan pointed another free to put GGC two ahead – their biggest lead of the game. Laune Rangers’ first goal chance came from a free on the left side of midfield, as a great ball by Conor Murphy found Shane Doona, whose low shot crept just outside the left post. GGC lost Oisín O’Connor to a black card in the 43rd minute as he pulled down Dáire Cleary en route to goal, but the foul was adjudged to have occurred outside the square which meant Rangers had to settle for a pointed free by Fiachra Clifford. With 15 minutes to play, GGC led Rangers by 0-8 to 0-7. The breeze began to stiffen at the backs of the Rangers during the final quarter, and a point by substitute Roan Moriarty had them level by the 47th minute. Fiachra Clifford pointed a free to give Rangers the lead, but Caolim Teahan levelled the game at 0-9 a piece with a 53rd minute pointed free for GGC. Rangers had another goal chance when some great speed and skill by Dáire Cleary put him through on goal, only for his shot to be saved by Donal O’Neill in the GGC goal. The stalemate was maintained until the 61st minute when Fiachra Clifford scored a fantastic point to give Rangers the lead. Clifford added a well taken free to go two ahead deep in injury time and, after GGC had swept forward in search of a winning goal, it was Laune Rangers who hit the net for the game’s only goal with the last kick of the game – Dáire Cleary, Matt Leslie and Shane Doona attacking against a single GGC defender, and it was Shane Doona who hit the net to secure the win for Rangers – a third Mid Kerry U21 title in six years for the Killorglin men. Full Time Score:- Glenbeigh/Glencar/Cromane 0-9, Laune Rangers 1-11. After the game, Mid Kerry Board Chairman Tim Coffey presented the Eugie Ferris Memorial Cup to winning captain Fiachra Clifford, who was also awarded the official Man of the Match trophy. Glenbeigh/Glencar/Cromane:- Donal O’Neill, Ethan Griffin, Caoilte Purcell, Conor Sugrue, Sean T Sheahan, Oisín O’Connor, Maurice O’Connor, Caolim Teahan (capt, 0-5, 4f), Cathal Crosby, Adrian O’Connor (0-2, 1f), Tommy Quirke, Liam Roche (0-1), Dara Casey (0-1), Shane O’Neill, Dara McKeefrey.

Laune Rangers:- Padraig Ahern, Pierce Tyther, Seán Arthurs, Darragh O’Shea, David Mangan, Patrick Carey, James Hurley, Conor Murphy, Darragh O’Sullivan, Cian O’Shea, Fiachra Clifford (capt, 0-6, 5f), Patrick Daly (0-1f), Mark O’Connor, Dáire Cleary (0-2), Shane Doona (1-1). Subs: Seán Cleary, Roan Moriarty (0-1), Rory O’Connor, Matthew Leslie; Oisín Daly, Jack Evans, Neil O’Brien, Daragh O’Connor.


MINOR: A much improved second half display gave Laune Rangers a hard earned victory over Killarney Legion in Derreen on Saturday afternoon in Division 1 of the County Minor League. Rangers were without goalkeeper Jack Evans on the day, so U16 netminder Jake Reenstierna was drafted up to the minor squad. He had a familiar face in front of him though, as twin brother Matt lined out at full back. Rangers welcomed both Roan Moriarty and Gearóid Hassett back into the team for their first appearances of the season. There wasn’t much to separate the sides in the early exchanges, as Gearóid Hassett opened his account in the 2nd minute with a point only for Legion to grab their first point soon after. The hosts took the lead in the 7th minute with a goal after good play on the right flank, but Gearoid Hassett scored his second point with a super effort from near the sideline. That would prove to be Rangers last score of the first half, as another Legion point saw the home side leading by 1-2 to 0-2 with 15 minutes played. Legion added three points from play in the second quarter to take a commanding lead into the break as Rangers struggled to put any pattern of play together. Half Time Score:- Killarney Legion 1-5, Laune Rangers 1-2. Legion pointed with the first play of the second half to extend their lead to seven points, but Laune Rangers soon found their rhythm. The half time introduction of Callum Russell paid immediate dividends as he fielded three great balls in succession to mount pressure on the Legion defence. Shane Doona pointed a free, before a great move put Gabe Griffin through on goal and the wing forward applied a deft shot low to the near post for an excellent goal. Matthew Leslie pointed for Rangers, before two Legion points restored their lead to 4. With 15 minutes to play, Legion led by 1-8 to 1-4. The final quarter was dominated by Laune Rangers. The visitors scored their second goal in the 52nd minute – Shane Doona’s persistence in chasing down every ball in the second half rewarded as an error by the Legion goalkeeper allowed him turn the ball over and kick it into an empty net. Rangers went on to add three successive points through Matt Leslie, Gabe Griffin and Roan Moriarty to go ahead by two. Legion reduced the gap to the minimum with a 62nd minute point, but the final score of the game was to the Rangers side who turned the ball over in defence and put Gearóid Hassett away on the break. Hassett made no mistake in slotting the ball between the posts to clinch the win for Rangers. Full Time Score:- Killarney Legion 1-9, Laune Rangers 2-8. Credit goes to the Legion club whose pitch held up fairly well on a day when a number of games had to be postponed. Laune Rangers Team:- Jake Reenstierna, Seán Cleary, Matthew Reenstierna, Evan Madden, Rory O’Connor, David Mangan, James Hurley, Roan Moriarty (0-1), Eoin Clifford, Gabriel Griffin (1-1), Matthew Leslie (0-2), Calum Moriarty, Ronan O’Shea, Gearóid Hassett (0-3), Shane Doona (1-1).

Laune Rangers led by 0-6 to 0-2 after fifteen minutes, as Jack O’Sullivan (2), Ryan Diggin, Joe Cronin Langham, Oisin Lynch & Ciarán O’Sullivan all pointed for Rangers. Churchill came back into the game and scored three successive points get back to within a point of Rangers. Jack O’Sullivan added a point for the hosts to see Rangers lead by two at the break. Half Time Score:- Laune Rangers 0-7, Churchill 0-5. Laune Rangers dominated the second half. Adam Owens (2), Jack O’Sullivan & Ciarán O’Sullivan all pointed before Jack O’Sullivan hit the roof net with a powerful shot for a goal. Churchill added a single point in this period. David Crowley and Jack O’Sullivan pointed before Churchill kicked a superb point from a ’45. With fifteen minutes to play, Laune Rangers led by 1-13 to 0-7. Churchill added two points in the final quarter, but Rangers continued to add scores – Jack O’Sullivan adding two points and Cillian Foley scoring a well taken goal.

SENIOR: The County Senior Football Leagues got underway this weekend, as Laune Rangers began life in Division Four with a home tie against Renard. Kerry Senior & U20 squad members Peter Crowley, Fiachra Clifford and Dáire Cleary were released to play for their club in Round 1 to strengthen Rangers cause, although Jonathan Carey was unavailable to the home side who had eight U21s in the starting team on the day. Renard, on the other hand, were without Killian Young and Rob Wharton through injury. In difficult conditions, Laune Rangers got the only two scores of the first quarter – goalkeeper Jason Browne scoring a super 45 & Patrick Carey also pointing an excellent point from play. Patrick Daly added a well taken pointed free. Rangers were now dominating the possession but were unable to convert that to scores, mainly due to the excellent Renard defence who blocked down Rangers shots time and again. This kept the visitors in the game, and a pointed free by Dara Fitzgerald saw the sides separated by just two points at the break. Half Time Score:- Laune Rangers 0-3, Renard 0-1. Jim Sugrue scored an excellent point to leave the minimum between the sides until the 42nd minute, when Dáire Cleary finished a great solo run by hitting the net for Rangers. Cleary hit the net for a second time in the 47th minute, as a Shane McSweeney pass found David Costelloe who forced a great save from Pa McGill only for the rebound to fall to the feet of Cleary for an easy finish. With just under a quarter of the game to play, Laune Rangers led by 2-3 to 0-2. Renard – with the swirling wind now blowing more in their favour – didn’t let their heads drop and began to chip away at the Rangers lead with a pointed free by Dara Fitzgerald. Kevin Curran was first to reach a dropping ball to knock it past Jason Browne for a Renard goal to leave three between the sides, but David Costelloe added a much needed point for Rangers at the other end. Dara Fitzgerald pointed twice late on for the visitors to leave Rangers sweating but some great defence by the home side – by Pierce Tyther & Conor Murphy in particular – saw the game out. Full Time Score:- Laune Rangers 2-4, Renard 1-5. While the wind & rain meant it was no spectacle in terms of free-flowing attacking football, it was important to get two League points on the board in Round 1. For the visitors, Kevin Curran and Dara Fitzgerald produced valuable scores while Brian Sugrue led well from full back. For Rangers, Tyther brothers John and Pierce put in big shifts at midfield and corner back respectively, while Pierce’s comrade at the back Conor Murphy was also excellent. At the opposite end, Dáire Cleary was dangerous throughout and his two goals were crucial. Laune Rangers:- Jason Browne (0-1 ’45), Pierce Tyther, Peter Crowley, Conor Murphy, Patrick Carey (0-1), Cormac Johnston, Seán Arthurs, Jack O'Connor, John Tyther, Patrick Daly (0-1f), Shane McSweeney, Daragh O'Connor, Fiachra Clifford, Dáire Cleary (2-0), David Costelloe (0-1).

KERRY: Well Done to Peter Crowley and the Kerry Seniors who defeated Monaghan in Killarney on Sunday in the National Football League.

SENIOR: The final round of the Mid Kerry Senior League took place on Sunday morning as Laune Rangers hosted Cromane in JP O’Sullivan Park, and it was Rangers who came out on top in the Killorglin derby following a strong second half performance. Cromane were drawing from a full deck on the day with Donnchadh Walsh lining out at midfield, while Rangers were without their Kerry Senior & Under 20 contingent among others. There was little to separate the sides in the opening exchanges. After David Costelloe had kicked a fine point to open the scoring, Cromane replied with three in succession through Seán O’Sullivan & Darren Houlihan (2, 1 free). David Costelloe & Colm O’Shea (free) pointed for Rangers to level matters. A long range point by Donnchadh Walsh was cancelled out by a pointed free for Rangers through Patrick Daly to see the sides tied at 0-4 a piece after 15 minutes. Laune Rangers scored twice in the second quarter with points from David Costelloe (his third excellent score) and Jack O’Connor, but Seán O’Sullivan scored three points for Cromane to see the visitors lead by the minimum at the break. Half Time Score:- Laune Rangers 0-6, Cromane 0-7. It was in the third quarter that Rangers took control of this game as, following a well taken Mark O’Connor point, the hosts scored two goals in quick succession to fire into a big lead – David Costelloe with a super shot into the top corner having been knocked off balance, while Patrick Daly kept his head to finish calmly past Paudie McMahon after Shane McSweeney had given a nice pass into the square. Jason Browne pulled off a great save to deny Cromane a goal chance while at the other end, Colm O’Mahony & Colm O’Shea (free) added to Rangers lead with points. With a quarter to play, Laune Rangers led by 2-9 to 0-7. Browne added a super pointed 45’ in sleety conditions, before Seán O’Sullivan scored Cromane’s first point of the second half with a free in the 52nd minute. Darren Houlihan almost rattled the net for Cromane as his shot struck the butt of the post following a fine run but the gap was not to be closed before the end of the game.

SENIOR: Laune Rangers faced the All Ireland Junior Club Champions Beaufort on Saturday afternoon in the Mid Kerry Senior League, although – due to the same clubs facing each other the following day in the Under 21 Championship Semi Final – both sides were diluted on the day. Rangers in particular were without more than 15 players for this game. The sides were level at 0-4 a piece with 15 minutes played as Kieran Doona (free), Gavin O’Shea, Eamonn Carey & David Costelloe pointed for Rangers, although a red card to James Lynch in the 15th minute meant that Rangers were going to have to play three quarters of the game with 14 men. Beaufort took advantage of the extra player, and outscored Rangers by 0-4 to 0-2 in the second quarter – Colm O’Shea (2, 1f) pointing for Rangers in this period. Half Time Score:- Beaufort 0-8, Laune Rangers 0-6. Beaufort hit the net in the 45th minute as an attacker beat Padraig Ahern to a high ball and punched it to the net. Up to this point, the sides were quite even and had scored two points each in the third quarter, with Colm O’Shea & Mike Frank Russell pointing for Rangers. With fifteen minutes remaining, Beaufort led by 1-10 to 0-8. Rangers remained competitive until the end and matched Beaufort score for score. The home side added four points in the latter stages, but it was matched by points for Rangers through Kieran Doona, David Costelloe (2) & John Tyther. Full Time Score:- Beaufort 1-14, Laune Rangers 0-12. Laune Rangers:- Jason Browne, Colm O’Mahony, Cormac Johnston, Aidan Cox, James Lynch, Liam Quirke, David Costelloe (0-3, 1f), John Tyther (0-1), Jack O’Connor, Eamonn Carey (0-1), Kieran Doona (0-2, 1f), Colm O’Shea (0-3, 2f), Mike F Russell (0-1), Morgan O’Sullivan, Gavin O’Shea (0-1). Subs: Ger O’Sullivan, Padraig Ahern.

UNDER 21: Congratulations to the Laune Rangers squad who defeated Beaufort in the Semi Final of the Mid Kerry Under 21 Championship on Sunday afternoon. Final Score:- Beaufort 3-8, Laune Rangers 2-17. Laune Rangers will play Glenbeigh/Glencar/Cromane in the Mid Kerry Under 21 Championship. The game will take place on Monday, March 18th – Venue TBC.

MINOR: Laune Rangers travelled to a cold and windy Rathbeg on Friday night to face Rathmore in County Minor League Division One. Both sides had won their Round 1 games last weekend, but it was the home side that came out on top in difficult conditions. Rathmore fielded a strong outfit while Rangers were still without Roan Moriarty & Gearóid Hassett, although Eoin Clifford returned to the fold and David Mangan was back to full fitness. A strong wind blew at the backs of Laune Rangers in the first half, but it proved difficult to manage as the ball rolled out over the end line on a number of occasions. It was the home side that struck first, scoring a goal and two points in the first three points in the first three minutes before Callum Russell pointed Rangers’ first score. Four Matthew Leslie frees (two impressive long range scores included) were added as well as a Rathmore point were added to see Rathmore lead by 1-3 to 0-5 after fifteen minutes. The second quarter was a low scoring affair – Rathmore pointing a free to cancel out a Matt Leslie point from play to see the hosts ahead by the minimum at the break. Half Time Score:- Rathmore 1-4, Laune Rangers 0-6. There was little work for the scoreboard operator in the third quarter with Matt Leslie again having a point nullified by the hosts to leave Rathmore leading by 1-5 to 0-7 with fifteen minutes remaining, although Rathmore almost found the net for the second time but for an excellent save by Jack Evans. Rathmore & Rangers (through a Matt Leslie free) traded points, before Laune Rangers took the lead with a super goal by Shane Doona – the forward applying a super finish following some great build up play by David Mangan and Eoin Clifford. Unfortunately, this would prove to be Rangers’ last score as the home side took control of the game with the breeze at their backs. They scored four points in succession in the final 7 minutes to secure the win, although Jack Evans pulled off a second excellent save to leave Rangers with a shot of stealing the win until the final whistle. Full Time Score:- Rathmore 1-10, Laune Rangers 1-8. While disappointed, Rangers will be satisfied with their efforts on the night. The Under 16 players – Matt Reenstierna, Darragh Mangan, Calum Moriarty & Callum Russell – all impressed in the step up to Minor, while Gabe Griffin & Eoin Clifford also stood out. Laune Rangers Team:- Jack Evans, Seán Cleary, Matt Reenstierna, Evan Madden, Darragh Mangan, David Mangan, James Hurley (0-1), Rory O’Connor, Calum Moriarty, Gabriel Griffin, Matthew Leslie (0-6f), Callum Russell (0-1), Ronan O’Shea, Eoin Clifford, Shane Doona (1-0).

MINOR LADIES: Congratulations to the Laune Rangers Minor Ladies who defeated Killarney Legion in Round 1 of the County League on Saturday. Final Score:- Killarney Legion 2-10, Laune Rangers 6-12.

The Laune Rangers Minor Team who began their season with a win on Saturday

LOTTO: Lotto Results for Sunday 17th February 2019. There was no winner of the €4,000 jackpot. The numbers drawn were 02 – 05 – 22 – 24. The Consolation Prizes were won by the following: €100 Hanna Cahill - sold by Pat Cahill; €50 Joe Crowley - sold by Margaret Browne; €25 Quinn O'Connell - sold by Kerry; €25 Ava Galvin - sold by O'Grady's Bar . Next week’s Lotto Jackpot will be €4,200.

SENIOR: Laune Rangers Seniors picked up their first win of the season at home to Keel on Sunday afternoon. Played for the most part in wet & windy conditions in JP O’Sullivan Park, Laune Rangers took the field with four sets of brothers in their starting fifteen. Careys Johnny & Pa, Tythers John & Pierce, O’Sheas Colm & Cian and O’Connors Jack & Mark all started, with the latter making his full debut at corner forward. Laune Ranger took the lead after just 30 seconds with a pointed free by Colm O’Shea. Colm O’Shea and Shane McSweeney added points before some great link up play with Mark O’Connor sent David Costelloe through on goal, and the forward finished his run well by slotting the ball to the net. Another Shane McSweeney point left Rangers ahead by 1-4 to 0-0 with just five minutes played. Keel composed themselves though, and they capitalized on a lapse in concentration by the Rangers defence to put Terry O’Sullivan through on goal – the veteran forward making no mistake in smashing the ball to the top corner from close range. Keel points from Aaron Murphy & Gary Sayers were cancelled out by super scores by Shane McSweeney & Cian O’Shea respectively to leave Laune Rangers ahead by 1-6 to 1-2 with a quarter played. The second quarter was less frantic as Laune Rangers were defensively astute & punished Keel’s fouls by scoring three frees though the O’Shea brothers Cian & Colm (2) before the break. Half Time Score:- Laune Rangers 1-9, Keel 1-2. Mark O’Connor scored the first point of the second half and it was a deserved score for his efforts, having won a number of frees in the first half. Keel were reduced to 14 men in the 38th minute as goalkeeper Cillian Sayers was shown a red card for a striking offence, and Rangers took full advantage, scoring a pointed free through David Costelloe before Shane McSweeney finished a move that he started himself with a well taken goal having linked up with substitute Patrick Daly. Oisin Daly was also introduced in the second half making them the 5th set of brothers to line out together on the day for the home side. With 15 minutes to play, Laune Rangers led by 2-11 to 1-2. Cian O’Shea added two frees for Rangers in the last quarter while Keel scored four more points through Gary Sayers (3, 2 frees) & Martin Burke, while Rangers also finished with 14 as Daragh O’Connor received his marching orders in the final stages. Full Time Score:- Laune Rangers 2-13, Keel 1-6. Laune Rangers:- Vincent Costello, Pierce Tyther, Conor Murphy, Aidan Cox, Jonathan Carey, Cormac Johnston, Patrick Carey, Jack O’Connor, John Tyther, Cian O’Shea (0-4, 3f), Shane McSweeney (1-3), David Costelloe (1-1, 1f), Mark O’Connor (0-1), Colm O’Shea (0-4, 3f), Daragh O’Connor. Subs: Jason Browne for Costello, Seán Arthurs for Cox, Patrick Daly for Colm O’Shea, Morgan O’Sullivan for M O’Connor, Michael O’Sullivan for J Carey, Oisín Daly for P Tyther. Keel:- Cillian Sayers, Seán Cremins, James Foley, Garret Prendiville, Daniel Ashe, Donal O’Neill, Colin Foley, Luke Flynn, Martin Burke (0-1), Shane Prendiville, Tommy Buckley, Cian Flynn, Gary Sayers (0-4, 2f), Aaron Murphy (0-1), Terry O’Sullivan (1-0). Subs: Liam Clifford, Eoin O’Neill, Seán Langford.

UNDER 21: Laune Rangers face Beaufort in the Mid Kerry Under 21 Championship Semi Final. The game takes place next Saturday, 23rd February at 3pm in Coughlan Park, Beaufort. All support would be appreciated.

MINOR: Laune Rangers got off to the ideal start in Division One of the County Minor League as they picked up a great home win against Austin Stacks on Saturday afternoon. Playing without key players in Roan Moriarty, Gearóid Hassett and Eoin Clifford, Laune Rangers also started with David Mangan in goal as the All Ireland Minor winner returns from an injury layoff. Austin Stacks began well as, after Shane Doona had pointed to put Rangers ahead, Stacks scored the game’s first goal with a close-range palm to the net. Callum Russell scored an excellent point that was soon cancelled out by Stacks, but Rangers pointed again through Gabe Griffin and Shane Doona to tie the game up in the 9th minute. Stacks – playing against the breeze in the first half – pointed twice more (1 free) to take the lead by 1-3 to 0-4 with a quarter played. Matthew Leslie pointed two frees in the second quarter, but Stacks scored five points in this period to take a strong lead into the break. Half Time Score:- Laune Rangers 0-6, Austin Stacks 1-8. A five point deficit and playing against the breeze for the second period left Rangers with a lot to do, and it became a little harder in the opening stages of the second half as Stacks scored two more points to Rangers’ one (through a Matt Leslie free). However, the introduction of Jack Evans into goals at the break allowed David Mangan to stretch his legs outfield. Laune Rangers set about clawing their way back into the game with a 41st minute goal – Ronan O’Shea intercepting a clearance kick by the Stacks goalkeeper and applying a deft finish to halve the gap between the sides. Austin Stacks replied with a point but two Matt Leslie points (1 free) left Rangers now trailing by just two. With a quarter to play, Austin Stacks led by 1-11 to 1-9. Laune Rangers dominated the final quarter, and a pointed free by Matt Leslie was followed by the hosts’ second goal to put Rangers ahead by two – Jack Healy tapping in after the ball was spilled as Rory O’Connor was hauled down in the square. Great defence from Rangers cut out the Stacks attack at source, and it allowed the Rangers to attack more often. Matthew Leslie added his 7th point of the game, while further scores were added by Shane Doona (2) and Gabe Griffin. Austin Stacks scored their only point of the final quarter with the final kick of the game. The final whistle was blown to give Laune Rangers a deserved win. Full Time Score:- Laune Rangers 2-14, Austin Stacks 1-12. Laune Rangers Team:- David Mangan, Matt Reenstierna, Evan Madden, Cathal Crowley, Gabriel Griffin (0-2), Seán Cleary, James Hurley, Calum Moriarty, Rory O’Connor, Ronan O’Shea (1-0), Matthew Leslie (0-7, 6f), Callum Russell (0-1), Jack Healy (1-0), Shane Doona (0-4, 1f), Marc Clifford. Subs: Jack Evans for Clifford, Niall Fenton for Crowley, James Treacy for Healy.

SENIOR: Laune Rangers fell to another defeat in the second game of the 2019 season on Sunday afternoon away at Milltown/Castlemaine. The home side fielded a strong team against a somewhat experimental Rangers side. There was little between the sides in the early minutes, as early points for the hosts by Jerry Hayes and Jamie O’Shea (2, 1 free) were answered by points from Shane McSweeney and Colm O’Shea (free) – McSweeney returning to the Laune Rangers fold following a County Championship winning year in Cavan with Castlerahan. Milltown/Castlemaine then took control of the game, adding points from Jerome Flynn, Gavin Horan & Jamie O’Shea before Horan finished a great run with an excellent goal. With 17 minutes played, Milltown Castlemaine led by 1-6 to 0-2. The home team added another point through Jerome Flynn in the second quarter, but Laune Rangers got back into the game with a goal of their own – Jack O’Connor’s effort at a point coming back off the post with Colm O’Shea alert enough to react and palm it to the net. Daragh O’Connor added a point for Rangers to leave four between the sides at the break. Half Time:- Milltown/Castlemaine 1-7, Laune Rangers 1-3. Colm O’Shea halved the deficit with two frees in the opening minutes of the half, but Milltown responded with points from Donal Dennehy, Pa Wrenn and Jerry Hayes to lead by 1-10 to 1-5 with a quarter to play. Shane McSweeney added another point for Rangers, but Milltown/Castlemaine capitalized on a few defensive mishaps, adding a second goal through young wing back David Leane who tapped in a spilled ball while Jerome Flynn pointed three more times (2 frees) to add gloss to the scoreline. Full Time Score:- Milltown/Castlemaine 2-13, Laune Rangers 1-6 Milltown/Castlemaine:- Cormac Leane, Ciarán O’Connor, Tadgh McCarthy, Stephen Roche, David Leane (1-0), Pa Wrenn (0-1), Kieran O’Carroll, David Roche, Donal Dennehy (0-1), Craig Counihan, Gavin Horan (1-1), Killian Kerins, Jerome Flynn (0-5, 4f), Jeremiah Hayes (0-2), Jamie O’Shea (0-3, 1f).
