SENIOR: Two teams vying for promotion came head to head on Sunday afternoon as Laune Rangers hosted Churchill in Division 4 of the County League. The sides couldn’t be separated in a superb game of football that saw points shared at the final whistle. Laune Ranger started well, with Daragh O’Connor and Kieran Doona scoring points while Shane Daly struck the butt of the post with a shot at goal. However, three Ivan Parker pointed frees and Cillian Fitzgerald saw the visitors leading by two after ten minutes. Fiachra Clifford pointed for Rangers before Parker added another free to see Churchill ahead by 0-5 to 0-3 with a quarter played. Dáire Cleary and Daragh O’Connor both pointed for Rangers to level matters before Kieran Doona gave the home side the lead with a great point. Churchill struck their first goal in the 22nd minute as Ger McCarthy finished well to the bottom corner to regain the lead for his side. Ivan Parker kicked three further points (1 free) to stretch the lead but points by Patrick Carey & Kieran Doona brought Rangers back to within a goal at the break. Half Time Score:- Laune Rangers 0-8, Churchill 1-8. Rangers scored four unanswered points at the start of the second half through Patrick Daly (free), Kieran Doona, David Costelloe & Daragh O’Connor to lead the game again, but a second goal for Ger McCarthy and Churchill wrestled the lead back again. A pointed free by Pa Daly was nullified by a great point by Cillian Fitzgerald before Daragh O’Connor scored a super point for Rangers. However, Churchill’s third goal – this one through substitute Tomás Lenihan – put Churchill 3-9 to 0-14 ahead with a quarter to play. Laune Rangers raised their game for the final stages with Pa Daly and Kieran Doona pointing before Churchill goalkeeper Eoghan O’Brien came upfield to score a 45 and Conor Daly pointed to restore the four point gap. Rangers goalkeeper Jason Browne also put a 45 between the sticks before Kieran Doona scored a brace to bring his tally to 0-7 (all from play) for the day. Ivan Parker pointed for Churchill, but Rangers were battling hard. Dáire Cleary saw his shot flash over the bar for a point, before team captain John Tyther levelled the game with a great point. There was more time is this fantastic game for more drama. Laune Rangers substitute Mark O’Connor scored a great point to put Rangers ahead deep in injury time, but Churchill held their nerve to win the following kickout, and work in to win a free, which was dispatched by Ivan Parker. The final whistle was blown to see spoils shared – most definitely a fair result as neither team deserved to lose. Full Time Score:- Laune Rangers 0-22, Churchill 3-13. It would be impossible for anyone in attendance at this game to have left unhappy as they were treated to a fantastic game of football with outstanding score-taking on both sides. For the home side, Ivan Parker was scorer in chief, scoring 0-9 with three from play. On the Rangers side, Kieran Doona put on an shooting exhibition, scoring 0-7 from play with all of them from 40 yards or more. As Valentia have withdrawn from the competition, Laune Rangers have played all their games in this year’s County League. As all other teams have games to play, the final standings are not yet known, but, at worst, Laune Rangers have secured a playoff place to decide promotion. Laune Rangers:- Jason Browne (0-1 ‘45), Patrick Carey (0-1), Jonathan Carey, Conor Murphy, David Costelloe (0-1), Shane McSweeney, Cormac Johnston, Jack O’Connor, Shane Daly, John Tyther (capt, 0-1), Kieran Doona (0-7), Daragh O’Connor (0-3), Fiachra Clifford (0-2), Patrick Daly (0-3, 2f), Dáire Cleary (0-2).

The Laune Rangers Under 7 boys that took part in a blitz in Currans on Monday evening!

LOTTO: Lotto Results for Sunday 21st July 2019. There was no winner of the €8,400 jackpot. The numbers drawn were 17 – 23 – 24 – 31.

SENIOR: Laune Rangers returned to winning ways on Saturday evening as they comfortably defeated Tarbert in the County League, played at Shannon Park, Tarbert. There was little between the teams in the early exchanges, as the first scoring chance was produced by the home side, although the goal chance was excellently pushed away for a 45 by goalkeeper Padraig Ahern. Patrick Daly opened this scoring with a point for Rangers, but it was soon nullified by a point for the hosts. Rangers scored their first goal of the game in the 11th minute, as David Costelloe came upfield to finish excellently to the net. Tarbert pointed a second score before Rangers goaled for the second time – Daragh O’Connor palming to the net from a superb lateral kickpass by Dáire Cleary. With fifteen minutes played, Rangers led by 2-1 to 0-2. Patrick Daly scored a super point before Tarbert cancelled it out with one of their own. Dáire Cleary & John Tyther points for the Laune were met by a brace by the hosts. Rangers may have had this game wrapped up by the break, but for three point blank saves by their goalkeeper from Dáire Cleary, Pa Daly & Kieran Doona respectively. However, Rangers still had a solid lead at the short whistle. Half Time Score:- Tarbert 0-5, Laune Rangers 2-4. Rangers captain John Tyther pointed again for Rangers before Tarbert replied with a pointed free. Laune Rangers’ third goal came from a wonderous finish by Daragh O’Connor, while Dáire Cleary & Shane Daly added points soon after. Laune Rangers’ Mikey O’Sullivan sustained an elbow injury that saw the game held up for about ten minutes, and Rangers closed the game out on the restart. The hosts added three points before the end, but Rangers scored points through Fiachra Clifford, Shane Doona, Shane Daly (2), Dáire Cleary & John Tyther to see them home. Full Time Score:- Tarbert 0-9, Laune Rangers 3-13. It was a much needed win for Rangers that keeps them in the hunt for promotion. As the final League game versus Valentia has been conceded by the Islanders, a win next week’s crunch home game against Churchill will ensure they go up. One unfortunate aspect of the game was the dislocated elbow sustained by Mikey O’Sullivan. Many thanks to Tarbert club and especially Joe Coolahan who stepped in to ease some of the distress on our player. Laune Rangers:- Padraig Ahern, David Costelloe (1-0), Jonathan Carey, Conor Murphy, Patrick Carey, Cormac Johnston, Michael O’Sullivan, Jack O’Connor, Shane Daly (0-3, 1f), John Tyther (capt, 0-3), Kieran Doona, Darragh O’Sullivan, Daragh O’Connor (2-0), Patrick Daly (0-2), Dáire Cleary (0-3, 1f). Subs: Fiachra Clifford (0-1) for D O’Sullivan, Shane Doona (0-1) for P Daly, Eoin Clifford for M O’Sullivan.

SENIOR FIXTURE: Laune Rangers host Churchill on Sunday afternoon next for Round 10 of the County Senior Football League. Throw in 2pm in JP O’Sullivan Park, Killorglin. As our Round 11 opponents Valentia have withdrawn from the competition, the Churchill game will be our last fixture in this year’s County League and a win would secure promotion to Division 3. All Support greatly appreciated.

JUNIOR: Laune Rangers hosted Gneeveguilla on Friday evening in the last round of games in the County Junior League. With 5 minutes to play, the game was abandoned due an accidental clash of heads between two players – both requiring stiches but thankfully avoiding a serious head injury. As Rangers were leading by 1-10 to 0-4 at the time, the result of the game stood and Rangers progress to the League Semi Finals.

Laune Rangers Minor Squad that defeated Killarney Legion on Tuesday evening in the County Minor Championship

LOTTO: Lotto Results for Sunday 14th July 2019. There was no winner of the €8,200 jackpot. The numbers drawn were 05 – 17 – 22 – 30. The Consolation Prizes were won by the following: €100 Geraldine Hayes - sold by Maria Hayes; €50 Anna O'Sullivan - sold at CYMS; €25 Stephen Murphy - sold online; €25 Diarmuid O'Sullivan - standing order. Next week’s Lotto Jackpot will be €8,400.

SENIOR: After an 100% run through the first half of the League, Laune Rangers have lost their second consecutive game to lose their place on top of the table & put their promotion chances at risk. Rangers were of course without Kerry U20 forward Fiachra Clifford who was among a half dozen regular starters on the absentee list, whereas Finuge were drawing from a full deck including Paul Galvin and hurling star Shane Conway. Rangers led early on as two Dáire Cleary goals following a pointed free by Finuge’s Pat Corridan. Paul Galvin and Jack O’Connor traded points before Ray Galvin scored Finuge’s first goal of the game. With fifteen minutes played, Laune Rangers led by 2-1 to 1-2. Finuge points by Darah Mackessey & Ray Galvin were sandwiched between Pa Daly & Kieran Doona points for Rangers before Finuge turned in a goal following a goalmouth scramble. Daragh O’Connor and Patrick Daly (free) added points to give Rangers the lead at the break. Half Time Score:- Laune Rangers 2-5, Finuge 3-8. Pat Corridan pointed a free to level the game before Ray Galvin put the visitors ahead. John Tyther kicked a great point at the other end to level matters again, with the sides level on 2-6 a piece with a quarter remaining. Patrick Daly put Rangers ahead with a point before Paul Galvin equalized for Finuge. Finuge struck the hammer blow in the 48th minute as Raymord Galvin finished well to the net for his second goal, and Shane Conway added another soon after. Dáire Cleary & Patrick Daly pointed frees before Patrick Carey came upfield to score a super point to leave Finuge ahead by the minimum. However, the visitors held on. Full Time Score:- Laune Rangers 2-10, Finuge 3-8. Playing without a number of regular starters certainly contributed to the loss on the evening. A bright note in the game was the introduction of Eoin Clifford for his Senior debut, and he looked at home as a Senior immediately. Laune Rangers:- Jason Browne, Michael O’Sullivan, Patrick Carey (0-1), Colm O’Mahony, Daragh O’Connor (0-1), Shane McSweeney, Cormac Johnston, Shane Daly, Jack O’Connor (0-1), John Tyther (capt, 0-1), Kieran Doona (0-1), Patrick Daly (0-4f), Mark O’Connor, Darragh O’Sullivan, Dáire Cleary (2-1, 1f). Subs: David Costelloe for M O’Connor, Eoin Clifford for M O’Sullivan, Colm O’Shea for D O’Sullivan, Liam Quirke for Tyther, Jonathan Carey for McSweeney. Finuge:- Killian Fitgerald, Cathal MCarthy, Declan McCarthy, Ger Stackpoole, Rory McAuliffe, Conor O’Keeffe, Jeremy McKenna, Pat Corridan (0-2f), Daragh Shanahan, Paul Galvin (0-2), John Buckley, Jamie Galvin, Raymond Galvin (2-2), Shane Conway (1-1), Daragh Mackessey (0-1).

SENIOR FIXTURE: Laune Rangers travel to Tarbert on Saturday evening next for Round 9 of the County Senior Football League. Throw in 7:30pm in Shannon Park, Tarbert. The club are organizing a supporter’s bus to Tarbert for the game. With our two recent defeats putting our promotion hopes under pressure, a large travelling support would be hugely appreciated. Contact Glen on 087 765 4967.

MINOR: Laune Rangers will take their place in the Quarter Finals of the County Minor Championship following defeat of Killarney Legion on Tuesday evening in Beaufort. Rangers got off to a slow start, with Legion scoring the first five points of the game through Darragh Lyne, William Shine (3) and Eoghan O’Sullivan. Rangers – after a few wides – finally got off the mark Gearóid Hassett scoring a fine point to leave Killarney Legion leading by 0-5 to 0-1 with fifteen minutes played. A Matthew Leslie point was cancelled out by William Shine’s 4th point for Legion, before Gearóid Hassett pointed again. The rest of the 2nd quarter was tight with defences coming out on top, but Rangers finished the half strongly. Gearóid Hassett scored a super goal to level matters – David Mangan & Evan Madden with outstanding passes in the buildup – before a pointed free by Matt Leslie with the last kick of the half put Rangers ahead. Half Time Score:- Laune Rangers 1-4, Killarney Legion 0-6. Legion pointed a free to level the game through Ethan O’Neill, but Matt Leslie (free) and Gearóid Hassett had Rangers leading by two. Legion responded well though, and a well worked goal finished by Ryan O’Grady gave the Killarney side the lead. Rangers wrestled the lead back through pointed frees by Ronan O’Shea & Matt Leslie, as the Legion side struggled to handle the Rangers forwards. The scores were level again with a Darragh O’Leary point for Legion, but Gabriel Griffin put Rangers ahead again with two great points. Matt Leslie & Darragh Lyne traded points, before Rangers struck a body blow as Gearóid Hassett hit the net from close range after great work by Ronan O’Shea. With fifteen minutes to play, Laune Rangers led 2-11 to 1-9. Rangers dominated the final quarter, as points by David Mangan & Ronan O’Shea increased the lead. Ryan O’Grady and Matt Leslie traded points before Legion scored two points to reduce the gap – Eoghan O’Sullivan with both scores. Rangers continued to press ahead, and Eoin Clifford got on the scoresheet with a super point – well deserved for a his efforts. Matt Leslie and Rory O’Connor added points before O’Connor scored Rangers third goal with the final kick of the game. Full Time Score:- Laune Rangers 3-17, Killarney Legion 1-12. After a slow start, Rangers put in a fantastic effort to ensure passage to the County Championship Quarter Finals. It is tough to pick a stand out performance with every player contributing. However, Eoin Clifford put in a super shift from start to finish, and his point at the end was the score of the game. Laune Rangers:- Jack Evans, Seán Cleary, Matt Reenstierna, Evan Madden, Eoin Clifford (0-1), Rory O’Connor (1-1), James Hurley, Roan Moriarty, David Mangan (0-1), Matt Leslie (0-7), Gabriel Griffin (0-2), Gearóid Hassett (2-3), Ronan O’Shea (0-2), Stephen Sealy, Shane Doona.

SENIOR: Laune Rangers’ unbeaten record in the Division 4 of the County League came to an end on Sunday afternoon with an away defeat to Castlegregory. Already spread thin with a number of injuries, Rangers were – for various reasons – without Kieran Doona, Fiachra Clifford, Shane Doona, & David Mangan who joined Sean Arthurs, Conor Murphy, David Costelloe & Cormac Johnston on the sideline. The early minutes were low in scores as Rangers were unable to convert their dominance onto the scoreboard. Laune Rangers led by 0-4 to 0-1 with 17 minutes played with all the visitors scores coming from the boot of Dáire Cleary (two frees). Castlegregory found themselves ahead against the run of play, scoring two goals in as many minutes. However, Rangers responded well and points from Dáire Cleary (free), John Tyther & Patrick Daly levelled matters. Rangers were dealt a blow in this period when Johnny Carey was forced off with an ankle injury following a late challenge. The home side took the lead again before Dáire Cleary kicked the last score of the half with a pointed free. Half Time Score:- Castlegregory 2-2, Laune Rangers 0-8. The home side scored the first three points of the second half, but Rangers came back with pointed frees from Dáire Cleary & Patrick Daly. The home side took to fouling Rangers every time they reached the 45 in order to protect their goal, and it was a tactic that ultimately paid off. Castlegregory scored a third goal with Rangers caught upfield to go ahead by 3-5 to 0-10 with a quarter to play. Patrick Daly pointed a free for Rangers before Dáire Cleary saw a goal chance saved. Castlegregory pointed twice (one free), before Rangers were awarded a penalty when Shane Daly was hauled down in the small square. John Tyther dispatched the spot kick to the net to reduce the gap to two but the home side pointed from the 45 to see them to victory. Full Time Score:- Castlegregory 3-8, Laune Rangers 1-11. While the defeat will be disappointing, Laune Rangers remain at the top of the County League Division 4 with four rounds remaining. Laune Rangers:- Jason Browne, Michael O’Sullivan, Jonathan Carey, Colm O’Mahony, Patrick Carey, Shane McSweeney, Pierce Tyther, Jack O’Connor, Shane Daly, John Tyther (capt, 1-1, 1pen), Darragh O’Sullivan, Daragh O’Connor, Mark O’Connor, Patrick Daly (0-3, 2f), Dáire Cleary (0-7, 4f). Sub: Liam Quirke for J Carey.

SENIOR FIXTURE: Round 8 of the County Senior Football League sees Laune Rangers host Finuge. The game is set for weekend of July 13/14 – details not yet finalized.

SENIOR LADIES: Laune Rangers came away from Currow on Monday evening win a super win in the County League, but they had to hang on in the last quarter as Currow fought back from sixteen points down at one point to give Rangers a scare. Early points from Nessa Healy, Fodhla Houlihan & Nicole Moriarty were met by a single point for the hosts before Fodhla Houlihan struck for Rangers first goal of the game in the 10th minute. Rangers added points through Nicole Moriarty (free) and Rachael Evans before Nessa Healy scored the second Rangers goal, although Currow did reply with a goal of their own to see Rangers leading by 2-5 to 1-1 with a quarter played. Laune Rangers scored a third goal through Kayleigh McGlashan – an interception at the back by Christina O’Brien setting up a swift counter attack – and further points from Nicole Moriarty (3) & Fodhla Houlihan saw Rangers take a strong lead into the break. Half Time Score:- Currow 1-4, Laune Rangers 3-9. Rangers began the second half as they had ended the first, extending the lead with their fourth goal through Kayleigh McGlashan after a fantastic team move. Currow scored three points but Rangers added points through Nicole Moriarty (free), Nessa Healy (2), Orla O’Brien & Andrea Nolan to lead by 4-14 to 1-7 with a quarter to play. The sunshine that had affected the Currow goalkeeper in the first half, was now – lying lower in the sky – causing issues with the Rangers defence. This gave Currow a chance to get back into the game, and they capitalized on it with great effect. They scored an unanswered 3-2 in a five minute period that brought them back to within five of Rangers, but Fodhla Houlihan scored a much needed point to stem the tide. Currow were now laying siege to the Rangers goal, but the visitors stood firm – Laura Brennan pulling off a great save from point blank range. Currow had to settle for a point on two occasions, reducing the gap to four points, but Rachael Evans scored a great point at the other end to keep the scoreboard ticking over for Rangers – the youngest team members Orla O’Brien and Laura Leslie instrumental in the buildup. Two further points were added by Currow in their search for a goal to leave just a kick of the ball between the sides, but Meadhbh O’Sullivan produced a super kickout reception from Laura Brennan to take the pressure off the defence and from there, Rangers worked the ball downfield for the insurance point through Nicole Moriarty. The final whistle was a welcome sound for a tired Rangers team. Full Time Score:- Currow 4-13, Laune Rangers 4-17. Laune Rangers:- Laura Brennan, Alanna Dolan, Claire Fealey, Christina O’Brien, Orla O’Brien (0-1), Meadhbh O’Sullivan, Hannah McGeever, Rachael Evans (0-2), Andrea Nolan (0-1), Laura Leslie, Nicole Moriarty (0-7), Milly Foley, Fodhla Houlihan (1-3), Kayleigh McGlashan (2-0), Nessa Healy (1-3). Sub: Annemarie Fealey.

MINOR: The County Minor Championship got underway on Tuesday evening, as Laune Rangers travelled to Lewis Road to take on Dr Crokes. Unfortunately, a number of thunder showers throughout the evening made for a poor game, with the home side doing enough to take the win.

With fifteen minutes remaining, Laune Rangers led by 5-19 to 5-7.

However, on their last attack, Rangers equalized with a fantastic score from Patrick Daly to see the spoils shared. Full Time Score:- Laune Rangers 3-11, Milltown/Castlemaine 4-8.

An excellent Callum Russell pointed 45 was followed by an Eoghan Hassett tap-in goal to put Rangers eight points ahead just three minutes into the second half. However, Firies didn’t let their heads drop and began to eat into the deficit, scoring three points in succession. Rangers came back again and pointed through Jack Healy, Eoghan Hassett, Callum Russell (45) and Marc Clifford to stretch their lead once more. A Firies goal gave them momentum, and they were awarded a penalty a couple of minutes later that they duly dispatched. Two pointed frees and one from play.

Early points from Kieran Doona & Dáire Cleary (free) put Rangers into an early lead, before adding a speculative goal through Patrick Daly.

Points from John Tyther, Dáire Cleary and Patrick Daly extended Rangers’ lead but Adam O’Dwyer & Niall Fitzgerald pointed for Waterville to stay in tough. However, Rangers were much stronger in the latter stages of the first half, with Daragh O’Connor adding a super point from out wide. After Jason Browne and John Tyther had denied Waterville with two goal-line saves, the Killorglin side kicked on and scored their second goal of the game – Dáire Cleary tapping in after the Waterville goalkeeper Patrick O’Dwyer had saved from Patrick Daly. Cleary added two further points for Rangers to leave them ahead by 11 at the break. Half Time Score:- Waterville 0-5, Laune Rangers 2-10.

With fifteen minutes to play, Laune Rangers led by 3-10 to 1-7. Points for Waterville through O’Dwyers Adam (free) & Barry (2, 1 free) restored the difference between the sides to six points, but Kieran Doona pointed to stem the tide. Eoin O’Sullivan pointed for Waterville, but Shane Doona responded with the best score of the game with a superb point from distance. Adam O’Dwyer and Dáire Cleary traded pointed frees before a 65th minute goal through Niall Fitzgerald gave the South Kerry side a glimmer of hope.

SENIOR: Laune Rangers continued their unbeaten start to Division Four of the County Senior Football League on Saturday evening, with defeat of Cordal at home in JP O’Sullivan Park. The visitors were without a number of starters on the day, while Kerry U20 Fiachra Clifford was unavailable, joining David Costelloe, Seán Arthurs, & Conor Murphy (all injured) on the sideline for Rangers. Early frees by Dáire Cleary and Patrick Daly put the home side ahead before Philip O’Connor kicked Cordal’s first point of the game. O’Connor added two more points (both frees), but Rangers scored excellent points through Dáire Cleary and Darragh O’Sullivan (2) to lead by 0-5 to 0-3 with fifteen minutes played. Laune Rangers captain John Tyther came upfield to score an excellent point from distance and, when the resulting kickout went wayward, Dáire Cleary capitalized to score a super solo goal – intercepting the ball on the left flank before beating a couple of defenders and smashing the ball to the net. Philip O’Connor (free) & Brian Reidy both pointed for Cordal, but Darragh O’Sullivan (3) and John Tyther scored excellent points to see Rangers take a strong lead into the break. Half Time Score:- Laune Rangers 1-10, Cordal 0-5. Cordal begun the second half quite well, scoring two points through Brian Reidy to reduce the gap. Dáire Cleary pointed a free before Cordal ‘keeper Seán Óg O’Ciardubháin came upfield to kick an excellent 45’ over the bar. However, Rangers’ Darragh O’Sullivan & Patrick Daly added to their respective tallies – Daly’s shot flashing over the crossbar following a super pass from Daragh O’Connor. With fifteen minutes to play, Laune Rangers led by 1-13 to 0-8. Laune Rangers made some changes during the second half including the introduction of Oisín Daly, bring him onto the field with both brothers Shane & Patrick for the first time. Philip O’Connor and Micheál Cahill pointed for Cordal before another Rangers replacement Shane Doona forced a super save from O’Ciardubháin in the Cordal goal. Jason Browne continued his fine form with the dead ball by matching his opposite number in slotting a 45’ for Rangers. Another Philip O’Connor point was followed by one from Seán Walsh for Cordal. Kieran Doona scored an excellent point for Rangers before Darragh O’Sullivan pointed his 7th and final score for the day. Seán Walsh & Jason Cronin (free) points were added in stoppage time for Cordal before Cian O’Shea scored from long range for Rangers, and a Brian Reidy pointed free in the 65th minute proved to be the final kick of the game. Full Time Score:- Laune Rangers 1-17, Cordal 0-15. The win gives Laune Rangers two valuable points in the County League Division 4 table. Shane Daly gave a fine performance at midfield, aided in no small way by Jack O’Connor and Shane McSweeney.
