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.

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). Subs used: Callum Russell for Moriarty, Jack Healy for Griffin.
