SENIOR: Laune Rangers secured passage to the Mid Kerry O’Sullivan Cup on Sunday afternoon with an away victory over Beaufort. Beaufort were restricted to 5 of their team that played the 2016 Mid Kerry Senior Final. Laune Rangers led by 0-5 to 0-1 after 10 minutes, with Colm O’Shea (3, 2 frees), Eamonn Carey, & David Costelloe pointing for Rangers – Carey’s point coming from a rebound after Costelloe had struck the upright. Darragh Coffey scored Beaufort’s first score. James Lynch, Jack O’Connor & Colm O’Shea added points for Rangers before David Costelloe kicked an excellent 45 in bad conditions. Beaufort kicked two well taken points through Padraig O’Sullivan and Kevin Ferris, but points from James Lynch and Colm O’Shea gave Rangers the lead by 8 at the break. Half Time score:- Beaufort 0-3, Laune Rangers 0-11. Darragh Coffey pointed for Beaufort at the beginning of the second half, but Rangers kicked on and points from Jack O’Connor (2) and Shane Daly increased their lead. Danny Healy & Kevin Ferris reduced the gap but a final Francis Russell point closed out the game. Full Time Score:- Beaufort 0-6, Laune Rangers 0-15. As expected, Laune Rangers were much stronger than what was effectively a Beaufort B team. Best for Rangers on the day was James Lynch who finished with 3 points and was lively in general play.
