JUNIOR – MID KERRY: Laune Rangers ended their Mid Kerry Junior League campaign on Tuesday evening, with a draw at home against Milltown/Castlemaine. Laune Rangers missed a number of chances early on and Milltown got ahead of Rangers as a result – points by Oisín Daly, Cian O’Shea and Mark O’Connor nullified by two goals (one from a penalty) and two points for Milltown to see the visitors leading by five with 22 mins played. However, Rangers ended the half strongly and led by the short whistle. Eamonn Carey & Colm O’Shea (2) pointed before Colm O’Shea finished well from close range for a goal. Another Oisín Daly point was cancelled out by one for Milltown to leave Rangers leading by the minimum at the break. Half Time Score:- Laune Rangers 1-7, Milltown/Castlemaine 2-3. Cian O’Shea pointed in the opening minute of the second half but Milltown immediately replied with a goal at the other end, adding a point a minute later. A Cian O’Shea pointed free was a short reprieve as Milltown added a fourth goal in between a brace of points to lead by six points. A Liam Quirke point left Rangers trailing by 1-10 to 4-6 with a quarter to play. Rangers began to come back into the game, and sustained pressure saw them awarded two penalties in as many minutes – Cian O’Shea dispatching both to the net to give Rangers the lead. Milltown/Castlemaine responded well, and pointed two late frees to take the lead approaching the end of regulation time. 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. With one win, two draws and two defeats (one by a solitary point), Rangers do not progress to the Mid Kerry Junior Final.

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. Firies had now wiped out an eight point deficit to lead by the minimum with ten minutes to play. Eoghan Hassett kicked a great point to bring his tally for the night to 1-7 from play, but Firies scored two points (1 free) to take a lead into injury time.
