Rangers fielded a young team with 7 U20s in their starting lineup. The home side took an early lead with points from midfield pair Niall Dennehy (free) and Donnchadh Walsh, but Rangers soon took the lead with a Fiachra Clifford goal before he added a point to double the lead. A Johnny Carey point was cancelled out by a long range free by Darren Houlihan to leave Laune Rangers leading by 1-2 to 0-3 with fifteen minutes played. Kieran Doona & Fiachra Clifford pointed excellently for Rangers before the hosts scored three in succession – Matt Colbourne, Darren Houlihan (free) and Paul Patrick O’Sullivan all pointing to bring Cromane back to a point behind.

Half Time Score:- Cromane 0-7, Laune Rangers 1-6. While the first half was a tight contest, the second was one-way traffic from the outset. The Half Time introduction of Roan Moriarty made an immediate impact, as the new full forward turned over possession on Cromane goalkeeper Colm Joy before being pulled down, stopping a tap-in goal. A penalty was awarded, and Rangers captain John Tyther dispatched the spot kick to the net. Dáire Cleary pointed shortly afterwards, before Roan Moriarty was given another chance to ripple the net & the young man made no mistake with a cool finish. A fourth Rangers goal would soon follow, as David Costelloe came up from wing back to get himself on the scoreboard. Dáire Cleary added a brace (1 free) before Seán O’Sullivan scored a point for his side’s first score of the half. With fifteen minutes to play, Laune Rangers now led by 4-9 to 0-8. Rangers rang the changes for the final quarter, but still outscored their hosts during this period. Fiachra Clifford added a point before Cian O’Shea scored a fifth goal for Rangers.

JUNIOR: After 120 minutes of football, Gneeveguilla took the title of McElligott Cup Champions for 2019. The replay was played under lights in Kerry GAA Centre of Excellence in Currans on Friday evening. Laune Rangers played against a strong breeze and heavy rain in the first half and, after goalkeeper Vinny Costello pulled off a great save in the 6th minute, Gneeveguilla took a two point lead with a pointed 45 and free. However, Laune Rangers were ahead by the quarter mark, with points by Colm & Cian O’Shea (free) and Eoin Clifford putting them ahead by 0-3 to 0-2 with fifteen minutes played – Cian’s free coming after Mike Frank Russell made an outstanding catch from a seeking pass by David Mangan. Gneeveguilla levelled before forcing another save from Vinny Costello, but the East Kerry men were threatening and eventually they hit the net for a goal and the lead. Two more points have them a five point lead on the 24th minute. Rangers battled back into the wind and rain and a point each by the O’Shea brothers Cian and Colm left a goal between the sides. With the final play of the first half, a Mike Frank Russell free dropped short & Eamonn Carey reacted quickest to knock it into the net to level the game at the break. Half Time Score:- Laune Rangers 1-5, Gneeveguilla 1-5. As luck would have it, conditions calmed shortly into the second half, meaning Laune Rangers did not have the benefit of the wind at their back for the second half that they had faced in the first. While the breeze was still blowing, Mike Frank Russell (a 50 free) and Eamonn Carey pointed Rangers ahead. However Gneeveguilla pointed twice to level the game at 1-7 a piece with 45 minutes played. A pointed Cian O’Shea free nudged Rangers ahead but a second Gneeveguilla goal swung momentum in favour of the men in yellow. Two Gneeveguilla points were nullified by points by Cian O’Shea (free) and Gabriel Griffin, and another was cancelled out by a point for James Hurley leaving two points between the sides. Gneeveguilla held on to win the game and the cup. Full Time Score:- Laune Rangers 1-11, Gneeveguilla 2-10.

UNDER 14 BOYS: Laune Rangers grip on the Mid Kerry Under 14 A Championship was copper-fastened for another 12 months with a fantastic win against a fancied Keel/Listry team in Killorglin on Sunday. JP O’Sullivan Park played host to all three Mid Kerry U14 Finals on Sunday, and the pitch was in great condition in the glorious autumnal sunshine. It took five minutes of the game for the deadlock to be broken and it was Darragh Clifford of Laune Rangers who pointed excellently to give his side the lead, but the visitors were level within a minute with a point of their own. A pointed free for Keel/Listry gave them their only lead of the game, and it was a lead that lasted two minutes until Rian O’Sullivan pointed for Rangers to level matters at 0-2 a piece after ten minutes. Rangers dominated the middle portion of the first half, and scored a further five points without reply through John Burke (2, 1f), Jack Lynch (free), Niall O’Brien & Rian O’Sullivan to give the hosts a strong lead. Keel/Listry battled back though, and scored the last three points of the half to reduce the gap to two at the break. Half Time Score:- Laune Rangers 0-7, Keel/Listry 0-5. Keel/Listry halved the deficit with a point early in the second half, but it was soon cancelled out by a super score by Niall O’Brien for Rangers. Keel/Listry pointed a free to leave the minimum between the sides at 0-8 to 0-7 with a quarter to play. The highlight moment of the game for many was the Darragh Clifford point in the 50th minute – the full forward showing great skill to win the ball and turn towards goal, and he shrugged off two defenders with ease before kicking over the bar from an acute angle. Keel/Listry responded with a point soon after but it would be their last of the game. Rangers defence were simply outstanding for the final ten minutes to cut out the attack time and again. A foul on Darragh Clifford gave captain Jack Lynch a free to put two between the sides, and Rangers held on to take a great win. Full Time Score:- Laune Rangers 0-10, Keel/Listry 0-8. Laune Rangers Blue:- Patryk Radny, David O’Brien, Oisín Birmingham, Devon Hogan, Shane Clifford, Tim Mangan, Eoin O’Connell, John Burke (0-2, 1f), Niall Tadgh O’Brien (0-2), Rian O’Sullivan (0-2), Stephen Gannon, Colin Griffin, Andrew Owens, Darragh Clifford (0-2), Jack Lynch (0-2f). Subs: Seanie Diggin, Conor Buckley, Matthew Spillane, John Tuohy, Aaron Doyle, Tom Garry, Joseph O’Neill, Micheál O’Shea, Logan Foley, Seán O’Donnell, Gavin Mangan, Adam O’Neill, Charlie O’Sullivan. It was a great win on the day with a team that contained eight U13 players. A young Laune Rangers White Team (wearing blue - pictured) took on Glenbeigh/Glencar/Cromane (GGC) early on Sunday afternoon in the C Final. It was the GGC team that used their advantage in age & physical strength to take the win. GGC led by 2-5 to 0-3 at the break – Conor Buckley (2, 1f) and Adam O’Neill taking Rangers scores. However, the visitors had too much for the U13s of Laune Rangers in the second half. A great goal by Mattie Spillane and pointed frees by Adam O’Neill and Conor Buckey (2) was not enough to claw back anything out of the game as GGC added 3-7 to take a comfortable win. The score line did not reflect the Rangers efforts on the day. All bar one of the starting XV are either U13 or U12, and it serves as great experience for 2020 competition. Full Time Score:- Laune Rangers White 1-6, Glenbeigh/Glencar/Cromane 5-12. Laune Rangers White:- Darragh Lynch, Callum O’Sullivan, Charlie O’Sullivan, Denis McGeever, Evan Moriarty, Gavin Mangan, Seán O’Donnell, Matthew Spillane, Conor Buckley, Logan Foley, Seanie Diggin, Aaron Doyle, Ryan Carey (capt), Adam O’Neill, Cathal Moroney. Subs: Luke Moriarty, Rian Hogan, Alex Garry, Colm O’Shea, Callum Russell, Maio Harmon, Cathal Daly. It brings to a close the competitive season for our Under 14s. Well Done to all the players who took the field for the club this year. Well Done and thanks to our U14 mentors who volunteered their time so willingly – John O’Donnell, William Byrne, Colin O’Connor, Aidan Spillane, John Clifford with help from Tony Lyons, Mike Frank Russell and Peter Crowley We look forward to seeing all back again in 2020.

UNDER 14 GIRLS: The Laune Rangers Under 14 Girls hosted Killarney Legion on Monday evening in the East Kerry Competition, and the sides couldn't be separated with scores level at the final whistle. Points by Sophia Doherty and Sara Leslie book-ended scores at the other end for Legion to see the visitors ahead by 0-3 to 0-2 with a quarter played. Legion added two more points before Rangers levelled matters as Sara Leslie struck the net with a super finish after excellent team play. Further points were traded between the sides - Amy Kelly with Rangers score - but Legion scored two goals in as many minutes to take a six point lead. Laune Rangers held their composure and were back to within a point, as Grainne Jones was most alert to react to a dropping ball to knock it into the net before adding another point, and a pointed free by Aoife Cleary left the minimum between the sides at the break. Half Time:- Laune Rangers 2-5, Killarney Legion 2-6. Aoife Cleary (free) and Sara Leslie pointed to nullify points by Legion - Olivia Moriarty driving out from defence before giving a super pass for Sara's score - before Legion scored their third goal to go ahead by four. However, Rangers rallied again and two Sophia Doherty points halved the deficit. Legion pointed a free to take a 3-9 to 2-9 lead into the final quarter. However, outstanding Rangers defence stopped Legion from scoring in the remainder of the game. Laune Rangers dominated the final quarter and engineered plenty in attack, with three frees being scored by Aoife Cleary to level the game. Full Time Score:- Laune Rangers 2-12, Killarney Legion 3-9.

As Rangers had 21 players, roll on/roll off substitutions were used to ensure all players got adequate game time. This didn’t make any difference as the subs kept up the same level of play, winning the game well in the end. The second game against another Kilmacud Crokes team was much tighter and the goalkeeper and defence had a lot of work to do but stood firm. This was a tough game in the heat but Rangers won by 1 point making it 2 wins out of 2. Kilmacud Crokes remaining team were looking to even things up a bit but unlucky for them, the Rangers girls were going for 3-in-a-row, and weren’t sitting back. All 21 players put in a huge performance in this game winning well in the end. Not many Kerry Teams have beaten Dublin opposition lately, certainly not 3 different teams in the one day. A compliment from one of the Kilmacud coaches that “they learned a lesson in football from a fine Kerry team” was well received. In the last game against Shamrocks from West Cork, the excellent defending, passing and scoring continued to complete a very memorable day, winning 4 in a row! Huge credit to all players who represented their club and county very well on the day – both on and off the pitch – and this was a very enjoyable day out. Many thanks to the coaches and helpers for their work on the day – it was much appreciated.

FUNDRAISING RAFFLE: Congratulations to Mike McSweeney, Mountain View who won our fundraising raffle for two tickets to the All Ireland Final replay as well as two return coach tickets to get him there and €200 cash. Although the result did not go our way, we hope he enjoyed his trip!

KERRY: Commiserations to the Kerry Senior squad and management on their defeat in the All Ireland Final, but well done to them on a fantastic year. Well Done especially to squad member Peter Crowley and Padraig Murphy who forms part of Peter Keane’s coaching team.

With ten minutes played, the scores were level at 0-4 a piece as points were traded back and forth – Gabe Griffin, Cian O’Shea and Mike Frank Russell (2, 1 free) scoring for Rangers. However, the Laune edged ahead with a goal as Eamonn Carey put the final touch to the ball to send it to the Rathmore net. Rathmore responded well scoring two points, but a great point from a tight angle by Mike Frank Russell saw Rangers leading by 1-5 to 0-6 with a quarter played. Roan Moriarty added a point for Rangers before Mike Frank scored his team’s second goal – Eamonn Carey & Colm O’Shea both unselfishly passing across to a player in a better position for Russell to tap it in. Eamonn Carey, Roan Moriarty & Colm O’Shea pointed to cancel out two for Rathmore at the other end, but the visitors scored two points to leave the two goals separating the sides at the break. Half Time Score:- Laune Rangers 2-10, Rathmore 0-10. Mike Frank Russell and Eoin Clifford scored points before Cian O’Shea scored three super points in succession from outside the 45 metre line. Mark O’Connor added another before Rathmore scored their first points of the half to leave Rangers ahead by 2-16 to 0-12 with a quarter to play. Mark O’Connor and Cian O’Shea added further points – O’Shea again from distance – and Rathmore scored the final three points of the game to reduce the margin between the sides.

MINOR LADIES: Laune Rangers took on Castleisland Desmonds on Thursday evening in the County Minor Ladies Division 2A Final in the Kerry GAA Centre of Excellence in Currans. Rangers took an early lead with a penalty that was converted by Laura Brennan, before Nicole Moriarty pointed twice (1 free). Desmonds kicked two points but Laura Leslie added another for Rangers, who led by 1-3 to 0-2 after fifteen minutes. Desmonds – who also had players from Inbhear Scéine Gaels (Kenmare District) playing with them including current Kerry Senior Julie O’Sullivan – grew into the game and scored two goals in the second quarter along with a brace of points. Fodhla Houlihan, Nicole Moriarty (2 frees) and Nessa Healy pointed to see the sides level at the break. Half Time Score:- Laune Rangers 1-7, Desmonds 2-4. Rangers saw points by Nessa Healy and Fodhla Houlihan nullified by Desmonds before the Castleisland/Kenmare side scored their third goal to take the lead. Rangers responded with a well taken goal by Nessa Healy, but Desmonds hit back for a fourth goal and scored a point shortly after to lead by 4-7 to 2-9 with a quarter to play.

MINOR: Laune Rangers are Central Region Minor Division 1 Champions for 2019 following with victory over Renard/St Marys in the Final, which was played in Cromane on Thursday evening. Following a good start by Rangers, where Ronan O’Shea (free) & James Hurley pointed in the opening minutes, the South Kerry outfit settled and scored three points in succession (2 frees) to take the lead. A Gearóid Hassett point levelled matters again and, after Renard/Marys had replied to a Shane Doona point with one of their own, Roan Moriarty and Ronan O’Shea (free) added points to leave Rangers ahead by 0-5 to 0-4 with a quarter played. Rangers points through Matt Leslie & Gabe Griffin (2) put them four ahead and could have stretched the lead further, but a double save from first Stephen Sealy & then Shane Doona kept the ball out of the net. Renard/St Marys pointed a free, but Ronan O’Shea replied with a pointed free at the other end to see Rangers leading by four at the break. Half Time Score:- Laune Rangers 0-10, Renard/St Marys 0-6. Laune Rangers hit the net in the first play of the second half as great play down the left flank set Gearóid Hassett through, and he unselfishly passed the ball across the square for Ronan O’Shea to tap it in. However, Renard/Marys responded immediately and had hit the net at the other end within a minute to get back to within four points. Another swift attack in the opposite direction almost saw the game’s third goal in just two minutes, but Gearóid Hassett’s shot missed by inches. Two points for Renard/Marys halved the deficit, but a Matt Leslie pointed free put Rangers three ahead again. Eoin Clifford pointed excellently, while Gearóid Hassett added another to see Rangers ahead by 1-13 to 1-8 with a quarter to play. The final quarter was low scoring – which suited Rangers just fine – but it was the Renard/Marys team that did most of the attacking. Ronan O’Shea pointed a free before it was cancelled out by a free at the other end in the 51st minute, which would prove to be the final score of the game. A 59th minute penalty for Renard/Marys gave them a great chance to get back into the game, but the spot kick was excellently saved by Jack Evans in the Rangers net to avoid a tense final couple of minutes. The remaining chances for the opposition were handled effectively by the Rangers backs and they held on to win. Full Time Score:- Laune Rangers 1-14, Renard/St Marys 1-9. Rangers backs did excellently at times of pressure, with Seán Cleary & James Hurley playing particularly well. The midfield/centre back triangle of Roan Moriarty, Rory O’Connor and David Mangan teamed up well, allowing those in front of them to attack. Laune Rangers Team:- Jack Evans, Seán Cleary, Matt Reenstierna, Evan Madden (capt), Eoin Clifford (0-1), David Mangan, James Hurley (0-1), Roan Moriarty (0-1), Rory O’Connor, Stephen Sealy, Gabriel Griffin (0-2), Matthew Leslie (0-2, 1f), Ronan O’Shea (1-4, 4f), Gearóid Hassett (0-2), Shane Doona (0-1). Subs used: Calum Moriarty, Conor Burke, Mikey O’Donnell.

JUNIOR: Laune Rangers will take part in the McElligott Cup this year, as they were defeated in Rd 1 of the Molyneaux Cup competition by Dr Crokes on Friday evening. Full Time Score:- Laune Rangers 0-13, Dr Crokes 1-15.

UNDER 21: Laune Rangers have exited the County Under 21 Championship with defeat at the hands of Austin Stacks in Connolly Park, Tralee on Thursday evening. Rangers welcomed back Seán Arthurs for his first game after a three month layoff, but had to make do without Fiachra Clifford, Conor Murphy, Gabriel Griffin as well as Gearóid Hassett. Rangers fell behind early in the game as Stacks – playing with a stiff breeze – raced ahead to a 0-6 to 0-1 lead by the fifteenth minute, as Patrick Daly’s pointed free was the visitor’s sole score in the first quarter. Patrick Daly’s second free was quickly cancelled out by a Stacks point but Rangers fought back in the latter part of the half, scoring points through Mark O’Connor, Cian O’Shea, Roan Moriarty and Daragh O’Connor to trail by the minimum at the break. Half Time Score:- Austin Stacks 0-7, Laune Rangers 0-6. Cian O’Shea levelled matters with a pointed free, and scores were traded with Pa Carey & Shane Doona each replied to points by Stacks to see scores level at 0-9 a piece with a quarter to play. Austin Stacks scored a fortunate point to go ahead again, and this was compounded when Stacks scored the decisive goal straight from the Rangers kickout. This took the wind out of Rangers’ sails – they would not score for the remainder of the game. However, it was not for the lack of chances, but Rangers could not break down the packed Stacks defence. Shane Doona and Dáire Cleary saw shots at goal blocked down, with Austin Stacks winning with a flattering scoreline. Full Time Score:- Austin Stacks 1-12, Laune Rangers 0-9. Laune Rangers Team:- Padraig Ahern, Seán Arthurs, David Mangan, Oisín Daly, Pierce Tyther, Neil O’Brien, Patrick Carey (0-1), Darragh O’Sullivan, Eoin O’Sullivan, Dáire Cleary, Patrick Daly (0-2f), Daragh O’Connor (0-1), Mark O’Connor (0-1), Roan Moriarty (0-1), Cian O’Shea (0-2, 1f). Subs: Rory O’Connor, Shane Doona (0-1), Eoin Clifford, James Hurley.

MINOR: Laune Rangers have exited the County Minor Championship at the Quarter Final stage, following a single point defeat away to Rathmore on Tuesday evening after extra time. The sides were level at 0-2 a piece on the quarter mark – Ronan O’Shea (free) and Gearóid Hassett scoring for Rangers, with Ronan O’Shea trading points with Cathal Ryan soon after. Rangers took a two point lead through Matt Leslie (free) & Shane Doona before David Dineen levelled matters with two pointed frees for the hosts. The sides were separated by a goal at the break, though, as Gearóid Hassett finished excellently. Half Time Score:- Rathmore 0-5, Laune Rangers 1-5. Rathmore dominated the early stages of the second half, but two super saves by Laune Rangers goalkeeper Jack Evans kept Rangers ahead. James Darmody pointed for the home side before Gearóid Hassett scored his second goal. Shane Doona and Gearóid Hassett pointed Rangers 7 ahead but Rathmore began to gain the upper hand – forcing a third save from Jack Evans before eventually netting their first goal through Dan Murphy. With fifteen minutes to play, Rangers led by 2-7 to 1-6. Arron Cronin and James Darmody points halved the deficit and, after Shane Doona pointed at the other end for Rangers, Cronin (free) and James Darmody left the minimum between the sides. Rathmore were dominating at this point, and a 55th minute goal by Ben O’Connor gave the hosts the lead. James Darmody pointed again for Rathmore, before a super goal from midfield by David Mangan levelled the game. No further score would come in the final minutes and the game went to extra time. Score at End of Normal Time:- Rathmore 2-11, Laune Rangers 3-8. Rathmore got the better of the first period of Extra Time, scoring three consecutive points Aaron Cronin, Jimmy Mahony and James Darmody, but Rangers scored a free at the end of the half to trail by two at the turnaround. Half Time in Extra Time:- Rathmore 2-14, Laune Rangers 3-9. Gabriel Griffin and Matthew Leslie scored outstanding points to level the game in the first minute of the final period. However, the crucial point of the game was a baffling black card decision on Gearóid Hassett as the Rangers front man was wrangling to get free of a blocking defender. The dismissal of the Rangers talisman dealt a blow to Rangers, with the home side scoring the final score of the game through James Darmody, although Shane Doona’s late shot hit the upright and came agonisingly away to safety. Full Time Score:- Rathmore 2-15, Laune Rangers 3-11. Laune Rangers:- Jack Evans, Seán Cleary, Matt Reenstierna, Evan Madden (capt), Eoin Clifford, Rory O’Connor, James Hurley, Roan Moriarty, David Mangan (1-0), Stephen Sealy, Gabriel Griffin (0-1), Matthew Leslie (0-2, 1f), Ronan O’Shea (0-3f), Gearóid Hassett (2-2), Shane Doona (0-3). Subs: Calum Moriarty, Mikey O’Donnell.
