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. Subs: James Treacy for Fenton, Ryan O’Sullivan for Clifford.

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.
