MINOR: Laune Rangers have secured a home Semi Final in the County Minor League Division 1 following a draw in the fifth and final round against Dr Crokes on Saturday afternoon. Dr. Crokes started the stronger with a pointed free from corner forward Seán McGann in the 4th minute. A long range effort from Michael Lenihan saw the visitors lead 0-02 to no score with 8 minutes of the first half played. On the restart Laune Rangers’ Roan Moriarty joined with Callum Moriarty to send the ball goal bound, the ball was fumbled but Rangers’ Roan Moriarty got a touch on it and sent it to the back of the Dr. Crokes net to swing the lead in the home side’s favour 1-00 to 0-02. Dr. Crokes replied with two further points from McGann in the 9th and 11th minutes as well as another point from Padraic Looney to give the visitors the lead once more, 1-00 to 0-05. Dr. Crokes pounced for their first goal of the afternoon in the 14th minute of the opening half when Gary O’Connor linked well with Lorcan Martin who saw his shot drop short, Dr. Crokes were alert in the inside line and the ball was finished to the back of the Laune Rangers net extending Crokes’ lead, 1-00 to 1-05. Shane Doona got one back for the home side in mid-way through the first half but Dr. Crokes popped up for their second goal in the 16th minute, Seán McGann finding Cian McMahon who made no mistake in firing the ball past Jack Evans in the Laune Rangers goal to let the score 1-01 to 2-05 in Dr. Crokes’ favour. A pointed free from Laune Rangers’ Matthew Leslie was cancelled out by a Harry Potts effort for Dr. Crokes in the 19th minute of the first half. Two final points for Laune Rangers from Calum Russell in the 24th minute and Matthew Leslie in the 28th minute saw the score stand at 1-04 to 2-06 at the short whistle. Laune Rangers hit a purple patch on the restart with a pointed free from Matthew Leslie in the 4th minute as well as an effort from James Hurley in the 6th minute to let a goal between the sides, 1-06 to 2-06. A free for Dr. Crokes converted by Seán McGann saw the visitors extend their lead once more in the 12th minute before a pointed 45’ from Rangers’ David Mangan reduced the deficit in the 14th minute of the second half. The Laune Rangers backline were working well at this stage and a cross field ball fell nicely to Ronan O’Shea who levelled the game at 2-07 a piece mid-way through the second half making for an exciting final quarter. Dr. Crokes Gary O’Connor pushed the visitors ahead once more in the 17th minute with a well taken point. O’Connor saw his shot ricochet off the crossbar soon after – a let off for the home side. Seán McGann added to his tally in the 23rd minute with a pointed free after Jason Kerins was fouled. This was cancelled out by a converted free from Matthew Leslie in the 25th minute to let the minimum between the sides. Laune Rangers’ Shane Doona levelled the game once more in the 29th minute just before Ronan O’Shea pushed the home side ahead with a minute of normal time to play. A point from full forward Gearóid Hassett saw Laune Rangers two points ahead in the 31st minute, 2-11 to 2-09. A stoppage for an injury saw the game continue and the battle continued! A goal for Dr. Crokes’ in the 37th minute gave the visitors a life line as the lead swung once more 3-09 to 2-11. There was still time for one last attack however and when Laune Rangers were awarded a free in the 39th minute, Gearóid Hassett made no mistake. Final score, Laune Rangers 2-12, Dr Crokes 3-09.
