MINOR CHAMPIONSHIP: Laune Rangers will play St Brendans in the County Minor Championship Quarter Final. Details of the fixture yet to be confirmed.

UNDER 16 GIRLS: Laune Rangers Under 16 Girls were defeated in the County League Semi Final against local rivals Beaufort on Thursday evening last. Beaufort opened the scoring just two minutes into the game with a well taken goal, but Laune Rangers responded well led by 2-3 to 1-0 after 13 minutes – all o Rangers scores coming from Fodhla Houlihan. Beaufort were back to within two points of Rangers by the quarter mark with another goal and their first point (a free) of the evening. With fifteen minutes played, Laune Rangers led by 2-3 to 2-1. Cassie O’Sullivan got the final touch on a rolling ball across the square for Rangers’ third goal & Fodhla Houlihan added another point, but Beaufort dominated the latter stages of the first half, scoring their third goal and a brace of points to trail by the minimum at the break. Half Time Score:- Laune Rangers 3-4, Beaufort 3-3. Apart from two Fodhla Houlihan points (1 free), Beaufort began the second half as they ad finished the first, dominating the scoreboard. The pointed three in succession and added two goals to lead by 5-6 to 3-6 with 15 minutes to play. Laune Rangers reduced the deficit to just two with four unanswered points Fodhla Houlihan (2, 1 free), Nessa Healy & Orla O’Brien, but a 6th Beaufort goal was a hammer blow to Rangers as time expired. A Cassie O’Sullivan point for Rangers was cancelled out by a Beaufort before the final whistle to see Beaufort through to the County League Final. Final Score:- Laune Rangers 3-11, Beaufort 6-7. It was ultimately a disappointing evening for a young Laune Rangers side who had a number of U14s making up the team. They came up short against a stronger Beaufort side on the evening. Best for Beaufort was Maggie West, a product of the Laune Rangers system who wore the royal blue until the beginning of 2017. For Rangers, the younger players all stepped up admirably, while Rachael Evans had her usual big performance at midfield. Orla Dunphy was outstanding at the back, sweeping up everything that came her way. However, with a tally of 2-8 to her name, Fodhla Houlihan was unplayable throughout the game, even when receiving special attention from the Beaufort defence late on. Laune Rangers:- Lucy Cahill, Grace Garland, Claire Fealey, Christina O’Brien, Aoife Nash Freeman, Andrea Nolan, Orla Dunphy, Rachael Evans, Alanna Dolan, Milly Foley, Nessa Healy (0-1), Orla O’Brien (0-1), Cassie O’Sullivan (1-1), Fodhla Houlihan (2-8, 5f), Aine Nash Freeman. Sub: Sophia Doherty.

UNDER 14 BOYS BLUE: Well done to the Laune Rangers Under 14 Blue team who defeated Na Gaeil in impressive fashion in the Central Region Under 14 Division 1 Semi Final. They will play Kerins O’Rahilly’s in the Final of the competition – details to be finalized.

UNDER 14 BOYS WHITE: Laune Rangers claimed the Central Region Under 14 Division 4 title on Monday evening, as they produced a fantastic second half display to defeat Austin Stacks in an exciting Final in Austin Stack Park, Tralee. The First Half was a tight affair, with Rangers hitting three goals to take a minimal lead into the break. Stacks scored the first goal of the game after three minutes, but Rangers were soon level with a well taken Rian O’Sullivan goal. Stacks pointed to go ahead once more, but Rangers replied with a second goal through Oisin Lynch to take the lead. Stacks added a point before Rangers had the ball in the net for a third time – Joe Cronin Langham finishing a great team move with an excellent goal. With a quarter of the game played, Laune Rangers led by 3-0 to 1-2. Jamie Healy registered Rangers’ first point of the game in the 20th minute, but four points by Austin Stacks in the 2nd quarter saw Rangers holding the lead by the slightest of margins at the short whistle. Half Time Score:- Laune Rangers 3-1, Austin Stacks 1-6. Laune Rangers had the benefit of the slight breeze that was blowing for the second half, and made full use of it from the outset. Rian O’Sullivan pointed to finish a great move on the right flank. Austin Stacks were soon level with two points (1 free). Rangers bounced back again though, and Oisin Lynch hit the net for a fourth Rangers goal before the same player pointed a free. With a quarter of the game to play, Laune Rangers led by 4-3 to 1-8. The final period of the game was dominated by the Killorglin men, as they won every individual battle across the field. Rangers went on to score seven unanswered points to put the game out of sight – Darragh Evans (2), Joe Cronin Langham, Dara Clifford, Oisin Lynch, Stevie Gannon and Rian O’Sullivan all on target before Lynch completed his hat-trick for Rangers’ fifth goal of the game. Austin Stacks scored the final point of the game with the games final kick. Full Time Score:- Laune Rangers 5-10, Austin Stacks 1-9. It’s difficult to pick a stand out player on the day for Rangers, as there was so many phenomenal performances across the field. Shane Kelliher settled into a new position at goalkeeper to give an solid showing as the last line of defence. James Prendiville played a captains role from full back, marshalling all in front of him and growing into the game as it progressed, Oisin Lynch was outstanding at the front, providing the attacking threat from anywhere inside the 45 yard line. All five U12s that came in as cover played well, especially Niall Tadhg O’Brien who was excellent at corner back. The midfield pair of Joe Cronin Langham and Cillian Buckley were the perfect link from defence to attack, with Buckley in particular making some excellent high catches and distributing for others to score. Well done also to the management team of Paudie O’Shea, John Clifford, & Patsy Joy. Laune Rangers ‘White’: Shane Kelliher, Niall Tadhg O’Brien, James Prendiville (capt), Senan O’Meara, Colin Griffin, Tom Garry, Oisín Birmingham, Joseph Cronin Langham (1-1), Cillian Buckley, Darragh Evans (0-2, 1f), Eoghan Joy, Oisin Lynch (3-2, 1f), Rian O’Sullivan (1-2), Cian Fogarty, Jamie Healy (0-1). Subs: Stephen Gannon (0-1), Shane Clifford, Dara Clifford (0-1), Eoin O’Connell.

UNDER 16 BOYS: Laune Rangers were defeated by Dr Crokes at Lewis Road in the County Under 16 League on Wednesday evening, as a spirited second half performance was just not enough to make up for a nightmare opening period. Crokes led by 5-6 to 0-2 after 25 minutes as nothing went right for Rangers, who were without talismanic forward Gearoid Hassett on the day – Matthew Leslie & Marc Clifford scoring for Rangers, with the latter producing a great save from the home goalkeeper who forced it over the bar. Laune Rangers were denied a penalty late in the half, when a foul inside the square during a period of attack for Rangers was negated in favour of the original foul outside the square. Matt Leslie slotted the resulting free, but Rangers soon hit the net as Cian Naylor finished well at the end of a good team move. Dr Crokes pointed the last score of the half to take a big lead into the break. Half Time Score:- Dr Crokes 5-7, Laune Rangers 1-3. Dr Crokes scored the first two points of the second half but Rangers dominated from there, scoring three goals in a 7 minute period to halve the deficit – Matt Leslie, Cian Naylor & Rory O’Connor all netting with Leslie’s a particularly eye-catching solo effort. Calum Moriarty scored a great point, before Matt Leslie kicked 4 in succession (2 frees) to leave Dr Crokes leading by 5-9 to 4-8 with nine minutes to play. However, the larger squad that Crokes possessed proved valuable as Rangers exertions in the second half began to take its toll on the visitors. The home side scored a 6th goal to make sure of the win and added a point late on. Full Time Score:- Dr Crokes 6-10, Laune Rangers 4-8. Laune Rangers:- Jake Reenstierna, Patrick Brennan, Matthew Reenstierna, Daniel Evans, Darragh Mangan, Seán Cleary, Niall Fenton, Calum Moriarty (0-1), Rory O’Connor (1-0), Mikey O’Donnell, Matthew Leslie (1-6, 4f), Marc Clifford (0-1), Jack Healy, Cian Naylor (2-0), Callum Russell.

Sixteen Clubs from around the County were represented in this 13 a side competition played in blustery but dry conditions in the impressive Tralee facilities. Laune Rangers started strongly in their group with a convincing win over Na Gael followed by a win over Rathmore with a solid performance and swift scoring. The Laune Rangers defense were impressive all morning - tackling, blocking and clearing everything that came their way. Sara Kennedy in goals was cool under pressure keeping two clean sheets and the Rangers midfield ran tirelessly all day. The Rangers attack, led by captain Aoife Cleary, kicked some lovely points and scored 5 goals in the two opening games. The two wins set Rangers up for a top of group clash with a physically strong Ballymac team. Ballymac started quickly, and despite a big effort from Rangers, came out winners on a 1-4 to 3 point scoreline. With a Shield semi final against Legion after lunch, Ranger girls gathered momentum and started playing freely and with great determination. An impressive win over the Killarney side set Rangers up with a final against the tournaments home team Kerins O’Rahillys. Laune Rangers kept their best performance of the day for the final, and from the throw in, used their pace and skill to score some well taken points and linked up with some quick forward play to score the goals that established a comfortable lead at half time. Despite a fight back by Kerins O’Rahillys the Rangers girls stayed strong and wrapped up the final with a 4-4 to 1-2 scoreline. The Laune Rangers girls showed great spirit and fair play all day. Their panel of 17 girls played their hearts out throughout the tournament with Rangers centre back Eabha Dolan picking up player of the match in the final.

Kieran Carroll pointed again to put three between the sides in the 55th minute. Daniel Whittleton pointed twice – one from an excellent 45’ – to leave the minimum between the sides, and Kieran Doona scored a fantastic point to level the game with the last kick of normal time. Score after 60 minutes:- Milltown/Castlemaine 0-12, Laune Rangers 1-9. Milltown/Castlemaine were much the stronger in extra time. Rangers would not score again, while Milltown pointed three times in each period – Jamie O’Shea (2, 1 free) & Tadgh McCarthy in the first half, and Jonathan O’Sullivan made sure of the win with three points (2 frees) before the end.

SENIOR: Laune Rangers travelled to Lewis Road to take on Dr. Crokes ‘B’ in Round 8 of the Senior Football League on Sunday 1st July. A hat-trick f goals from Chris Doncel and another from Mark O'Shea gave Dr. Crokes B the victory. Laune Rangers were first off the mark with a point from a free from Colm O’Shea after corner forward Dáire Cleary was fouled in the 2nd minute. This lead was short lived however as two minutes later, in the 4th minute Chris Doncel went in for his and Dr. Crokes first goal of the afternoon and the lead swung in the home-side’s favour, 1-00 to 0-01. The free takers on both sides swapped scores in the 5th and 7th minutes of the game with Colm O’Shea slotting over for the visitors and Brian O’Shea pointing for the home-side, 1-01 to 0-02. Laune Rangers scored two further points in the 15th and 16th minutes of the half – a lovely long range effort from midfielder Shane Daly and another pointed free from Colm O’Shea before Darragh O’Sullivan intercepted a Dr. Crokes kickout to score Laune Rangers first goal in the 16th minute of the half, giving Laune Rangers the lead, 1-04 to 1-01. Dr. Crokes replied in style with a goal from Mark O’Shea straight from the resulting kickout and the lead changed hands once more, 2-01 to 1-04. In the 21st minute of the half, Kieran Doona scored another point for Laune Rangers before Dr. Crokes hit a purple patch, scoring 5 points in as many minutes, the scores coming from Mikey Casey (2), Jack Griffin and Brian O’Shea(2) to let the score 2-06 to 1-05 in Dr. Crokes favour. Two points from Colm O’Shea in the 29th and 32nd minutes closed Dr. Crokes lead to two points but Chris Doncel pounced for his second and Crokes third of the afternoon in the 33rd minute to extend Dr. Crokes lead once more, 3-06 to 1-07. A final fisted effort from Rangers’ Colm O’Shea saw the game stand in Dr. Crokes’ favour at the short whistle. Half Time Score:- Dr Crokes 3-6, Laune Rangers 1-8. Mikey Casey got the opening score of the second half for Dr. Crokes before Darragh O’Connor linked well with Cian O’Shea and Dáire Cleary to send Cleary through for Rangers’ second goal in the 3rd minute of the second half, closing Dr. Crokes lead to two points once more. Dr. Crokes, however, had other ideas and responded well again with Brian O’Shea pointing two frees in the 5th and 7th minutes along with Doncel finding his hat-trick of goals for the afternoon in the 6th minute of the second half to let Dr. Crokes ahead, 4-09 to 2-08. Laune Rangers’ brothers Colm (free) and Cian O’Shea got two points back for the visitors in the minutes that followed to keep Laune Rangers’ hopes alive. Brian O’Shea (Crokes) and James Lynch (Rangers) swapped points in the 13th and 14th minutes of the second half with O’Shea adding another from a free soon after to see Crokes lead 4-11 to 2-11 mid way through the second half. A point from Kieran Doona and a Colm O’Shea free kept Laune Rangers in the game but Dr. Crokes pushed on and hit another purple patch in the final third of the half with points from Mark O’Shea(2), Billy Courtney, Shane Doolan, Brian O’Shea, Mark Hartnett and Jason Lyne to extend Crokes’ lead to 4-18 to 2-13 with 30 minutes of the second half played. A Dáire Cleary effort along with a final point from Patrick Daly for Rangers, in the minutes added on to allow for the water break taken during the half, wasn’t enough to close the lead Dr. Crokes had built up and saw the home side take the points with a final score line of Dr. Crokes 4-18 Laune Rangers 2-15. Laune Rangers: Jason Browne, Pierce Tyther, Sean Arthurs, Cormac Johnston, Chris Riordan, Jonathan Carey, Michael O’Sullivan, Shane Daly, Jack O’Connor, Darragh O’Sullivan, Kieran Doona, Daragh O’Connor, Colm O’Shea, Padraig Murphy, Dáire Cleary.

MINOR: After a long sabbatical, the County Minor Championship returned to JP O’Sullivan Park, Killorglin on Tuesday evening with a rematch of the County Division 1 Final between Laune Rangers & Austin Stacks. Both sides were without players on the day – current Kerry Minor panellist Shane Doona was absent for Rangers while 2017 Minor panellist Dylan Casey missed out for Stacks. There was little to separate the sides for much of the first half. Dáire Cleary and Sean Quilter exchanged pointed frees in the opening minutes, before Dáire Cleary scored the opening goal of the game – Gearóid Hassett putting a great ball into the path of Cleary in the build up. However, Stacks soon equalized with a well worked goal that was finished by Daniel O’Rourke. Wing back Adam Curran ended a fine run upfield for a good point, but Rangers soon regained the lead with a second Dáire Cleary goal. With 15 minutes played, Laune Rangers led by 2-1 to 1-2. Points were again traded between the sides with Cleary pointing a free for Rangers, before an injury to Kevin Fitzpatrick saw the midfielder leave the field. Rangers took some time to adjust to the loss of a key player & Stacks kicked three points in succession in a five minute period – Michael Slattery with the pick of the bunch. Rangers settled into the game again and were back in the lead in the 31st minute as Gearóid Hassett won a ball on the flank and ran in by the touchline before passing across the square to the onrushing Mark O’Connor for a goal. There was sufficient time in the half for two more goals though – Daniel O’Rourke finding the net for Stacks before Dáire Cleary completed his hat-trick to give Rangers the lead at the break. Half Time Score:- Laune Rangers 4-2, Austin Stacks, 2-6. Michael Slattery & Dáire Cleary (free) traded points early in the second half before Austin Stacks wrestled the lead back with a Michael Slattery goal. Cleary pointed another free soon after to level matters as Rangers were causing havoc in the Stacks backline. Gearóid Hassett scored a fifth Rangers goal to put the hosts ahead again. Dáire Cleary and David Mangan added points but these were soon nullified by Stacks, although Rangers extended their lead with a sixth goal – Dáire Cleary netting for a sixth time to see Laune Rangers leading by 6-6 to 3-9 with a quarter to play. Rangers put in a big defensive display in the final quarter to deny Stacks a goal to get back in the game with Seán Arthurs in particular outstanding in front of his own goal. Stacks scored three frees in the final quarter through Seán Quilter & Michael Slattery, but Rangers were able to match them with three points through David Mangan, Mark O’Connor (free) and Gearóid Hassett (free). Austin Stacks had a player sent off before the end of the game but the final whistle was blown to give Rangers a deserved win in Round 1 of the County Minor Championship. Full Time Score:- Laune Rangers 6-9, Austin Stacks 3-12. Austin Stacks host Feale Rangers in the second group game next Tuesday evening, before Laune Rangers travel to Mountcoal on Tuesday 10th July to face Feale Rangers in the final game of the group stage. Laune Rangers:- Jack Evans, Seán Cleary, Seán Arthurs, Evan Madden, Conor Murphy, David Mangan (0-2), Eoin Clifford, Roan Moriarty, Kevin Fitzpatrick, Ronan O’Shea, Dáire Cleary (4-5, 4f), Daragh O’Connor (c), Mark O’Connor (1-1, 1f), Matthew Leslie, Gearóid Hassett (1-1, 1f).

Daniel Whittleton & John Sheehan were introduced in their place and the former added to Rangers’ lead in the 10th minute. Beaufort scored a goal to narrow the gap but a brace from Eamon Carey saw Rangers leading by 1-4 to 1-1 with 15 minutes played. Beaufort pointed again before they scored their second goal to take a lead somewhat against the run of play. Daniel Whittleton pointed a free to level matters, but a pointed free for Beaufort gave the visitors the lead by the minimum at the break. Half Time Score:- Laune Rangers 1-5, Beaufort 2-3.

Both sides were creating chances but the strong wind that blew at Rangers backs was challenging. Only one score was produced in the final quarter but it was a decisive one – Cian O’Shea putting Rangers ahead to win the game.

SENIOR: Listry hosted Laune Rangers on Sunday afternoon in the County Senior Football League, and the home side came out on top to claim the all important League points. Listry were without Barry Keane on the day, but had two former Kerry Minors in their full forward line in Gary O’Sullivan & Ronan Buckley. Laune Rangers, on the other hand, were without up to 15 of this year’s squad as injury, inter-County duty, exams, & summer migration have all taken their toll. Listry got off to a lightning start, scoring goals with their first two possessions through Cain Bradley and Gary O’Sullivan. This took the wind out of the Rangers, but they started to create some chances. Dáire Cleary scored two points for Rangers, although Ronan Buckley also put the ball over for Listry’s first point. Rangers were wasteful with their chances in the first quarter, with five wides stopping the scoreline from getting any closer to parity. With 15 minutes played, Listry led by 2-1 to 0-2. Derry Ahern added to Listry’s lead with a point, but Rangers responded well with points from Podge Murphy and Dáire Cleary. The home side were quite wasteful in the second half, with two goal chances flashing wide with 4 more point attempts sailing wide. They did add on two more points before the break, however, with Ronan Buckley & Gary O’Sullivan scoring to see their side go in with a lead of two clear goals at the short whistle. Half Time Score:- Listry 2-4, Laune Rangers 0-4. Laune Rangers would have hoped to begin the second half better than they had the first, but Listry had other ideas and had the ball in the net for a third time with the opening play – corner back Danny Wrenn finishing a good run with an excellent finish. John O’Shea and Joseph Clifford traded points to maintain the three goal difference, but Rangers rattled the net themselves in the 40th minute. Dáire Cleary struck the net for a great finish, but saw it called back as the referee had blown for a penalty in the lead up. Cleary stepped up to the penalty spot himself and struck the top corner of the net. Anthony Sweeney (free) and Joseph Clifford points bookended points by Rangers’ John O’Shea and Dáire Cleary to see Listry leading by 3-7 to 1-7 with a quarter to play. Listry scored three unanswered points through Cain Bradley, Derry Ahern & Aaron McCarthy put an end to any chance of a Rangers comeback, but Rangers kept their heads up & went in search of scores to close the gap. Dáire Cleary pointed four times (2 frees) to bring his own tally to 1-8, but the final whistle was blown to give Listry the win. Full Time Score:- Listry 3-10, Laune Rangers 1-11. The consistancy of playing together gave Listry a distinct advantage on the day, as Laune Rangers are yet to put the same 15 on the field in successive games this season. Best for Listry was Cain Bradley who scored 1-1 from wing back while Gary O’Sullivan was dangerous throughout.. Best for Rangers was Dáire Cleary who was outstanding for Rangers in attack. Meanwhile the midfield of Shane Daly & Jack O’Connor – both of whom were returning from injury – put in a big effort while Kieran Doona showed no signs of rustiness on his return to Senior County League football.. Listry:- Colm Counihan, Danny Wrenn (1-0), Kieran Murphy, Kevin Courtney, Billy O’Brien, Anthony Kennedy, Cain Bradley (1-1), Jimmy O’Leary, Stephen Brosnan, Derry Ahern (0-2), Anthony Sweeney (0-1f), Aaron McCarthy (0-1), Gary O’Sullivan (1-1), Ronan Buckley (0-2), Joseph Clifford (0-2).
