U16 BOYS: Our U16s face Churchill on Monday evening March 30th in the Central Region competition at 6:15pm. They lost their first round fixture away to Na Gaeil on a scoreline of Na Gaeil 1-13, Laune Rangers 1-8 last week.
U14 GIRLS: Despite wind and heavy driving rain in Tralee our U14 girls won convincingly against a young but spirited John Mitchels team on Sunday evening. The 1st score went to John Mitchels, but after that it was one-way traffic with Laune Rangers girls scoring freely. The conditions however made it difficult for players and spectators alike and the final whistle was a welcome sound for all. Laune Rangers Scorers : Hannah Joy 4-1 , Alanna Dolan 2-0, Kayleigh McGlashen 1-1, Elaine O'Meara 1-1, Nicole Moriarty 0-4 and Lucy O’Donnell 1-0.
U14 BOYS: Our U14 boys (both Blue & White teams) face Dr Crokes in Round 1 of the County League on Wednesday April 1st at 7pm in JP O’Sullivan Park. In preparation for this, both under 14 teams played host to Austin Stacks A and B teams on Sunday evening. The games served as ideal preparation for us as we commence the county league program this week. After a sluggish start, the ‘Blue’ Team came with a strong second half performance to emerge victorious by 4 points in the end – some eye catching performances by Gabriel Griffin, Conor Burke, James Hurley, Shane Doona, Gearoid Hassett and Jack Evans in an all round good team display. The development or ‘White’ team also emerged victorious with good performances by Jack Carey, Nathan Houlihan and Tiarnach Clifford as the whole team played well. Both sides are hopeful of getting good support to their matches on Wednesday night against Dr Crokes.
