SENIORS: Mid Kerry SFC semi-final:

Cromane 1-8, Beaufort 3-15

Cromane interest in this year’s Mid Kerry SFC ended on Sunday after a third-quarter scoring spree from Beaufort when they hit 1-5 without reply. It was a scoring burst that put the game beyond us. It was a disappointing end but we can take some solace from a fine opening half when we led by 1-6 to 1-3 entering injury time. We also spurned a golden goaling chance early in the second half which would have put us four clear. But, despite the final scoreline, our lads (down a few bodies and suffering some injury blows) were able to go toe-to-toe with the county intermediate finalists.

However, once Beaufort edged ahead the floodgates opened as their extra scoring class told - especially full-forward Jack O’Connor who ended the day with 1-6. An O’Connor free had the sides level at 1-6 apiece after 36 minutes and it came just moments after Cromane missed a glaring goaling chance to move four ahead early in the second half. However, we just didn’t take the chance and Beaufort made us pay. Our opponents proceeded to kick 1-4 without reply after O’Connor’s equalising free - with O’Connor helping himself to 1-2 and the other scores coming from captain Fergal Hallissey and Ciaran Kennedy. At this stage, Beaufort was dominating around the middle especially on the ground ball and we started to struggle.

A Barry Flanagan free stemmed the flow of one-way scores but, by the second half water break, Beaufort were well on top leading by 2-10 to 1-7.

It was all so different in the first half when we more than matched our opponents. Despite an early Beaufort goal which put the victors 1-1 to 0-1 ahead after 5 minutes, we were the better side. Points from Liam Walsh (two), Mikey Houlihan, Flanagan and Donnchadh Walsh meant we were only a point in arrears at the first half water break, 0-5 to 1-3. We were then hit with a double injury blow with Conor Sugrue and Shane Ahern departing, although Shane did reappear in the second half.

Our lads kept pushing with some nice direct football and Mikey Houlihan levelled matters in the 29th minute with a fine point. From the resultant kick-out, we won possession again and a lovely more between Flanagan, Mikey Houlihan and Darragh McKeefry ended with Darragh firing low for a goal. Cromane were suddenly up 1-6 to 1-3 in first-half injury time. Beaufort steadied themselves and made full use of the seven minutes of added time from the earlier injuries to reduce the deficit to one at the break, thanks to points from O’Connor and Hallissey to leave the half time score: Cromane 1-6, Beaufort 1-5.

Early in the second half came that gilt-edged goaling chance for Cromane and the resultant scoring spree that put Beaufort 2-10 to 1-7 up by the second half water break. The winners didn’t take their foot off the pedal adding another 1-5 with the goal in the final minute.

All is not lost on the year as we have a Novice FC semi-final to look forward to next Sunday against Moyvane in Strand Road, Tralee.

Scorers: Darragh McKeefry 1-0, Barry Flanagan 0-3 (0-2 frees), Mikey Houlihan and Liam Walsh 0-2 each, Donnchadh Walsh 0-1.

Teams: Sean Teahan; Ethan Griffin, Conor Sugrue, Brice Dourieu; Cathal Crosby, Brendan Foley, Finbar Casey; Donnchadh Walsh, Liam Walsh; Éanna Healy, Darren Houlihan, Shane Ahern; Barry Flanagan, Darragh McKeefry, Mikey Houlihan. Subs: Liam Joy for S Ahern (injured) 24 minutes, Sean O’Sullivan for C Sugrue (injured) 26 minutes, Shane Ahern for S O’Sullivan (injured) 40 minutes, Eamon O’Connor for S Ahern 50 minutes.

Despite a healthy 5 point lead at half time 0-08 to 0-03 we failed by the narrowest of margins to get over the line.

East Kerry Championship u17

Spa 2-8 Glenflesk 1-13. Glenflesk qualified for the semifinals of the East Kerry Minor Championship after surviving a strong second half comeback from Spa in a fiercely competitive game where three superb goals stood out as the highlight. The opening of the game was all about the free takers. Dylan Roche scoring two for Glenflesk, while Aidan Cronin and Timmy Moynihan replied with three of their own for the home side. Roche found the target from well out near the sideline with the first score from play, leaving Glenflesk one point up at the water break after a hectic start. If the first quarter had been evenly matched, the second was all about Glenflesk. Luke Crowley dummied and kicked over a super score with the outside of the right foot to add to two more Roche frees, and another score from Darragh McCormack. Glenflesk then struck for the first goal of the day. Crowley’s accurate long ball was caught by Roche, who dummied marker and goalie before passing the ball to the net. A point from play from Cronin was Spa’s only score during this period. Spa needed to get going quickly in the second half, and they got the best possible start.

Luke O Neill leapt high to catch the throw in. He then drove forward at speed. His pass found Chris Healy, with no defender in sight. Healy buried his shot to the roof of the net, and it was game back on. Another Cronin free narrowed the deficit further. Two Roche frees in quick succession looked to have settled Glenflesk back down, but Spa were looking more and more dangerous. They found the net again after more good play. Moynihan delivering the killer blow, blasting a shot into the far corner of the net from a tight angle. Glenflesk’s lead was now only one as the second water break arrived.

Cronin almost goaled straight after the restart, denied only by a brilliant save from Liam O Donoghue.

Glenflesk had a chance to finish the game off when Jamie Moynihan was fouled leading to a penalty. Luke Crowley hit his effort well, but a brilliant diving save to his right from Jack O Sullivan denied him.

A free from Moynihan brought Spa back to within one, but Crowley replied with another point, and Glenflesk held on to win. Spa deserve credit for the comeback, and if they had got back level they may have felt they could push on and win. Glenflesk will know they can play a whole lot better, and now head to face Dr Crokes in the semifinal next Sunday determined to push on and produce the form they showed in the County Championship.

LOTTO: Laune Rangers Lotto Results for Sunday 21st November 2021. There was no winner of the €9,200 jackpot. Numbers drawn 13 -- 18 -- 28 -- 29. Consolation Prizes were won by the following: €100 Peig Looney -- sold at CYMS; €50 Eileen O’Sullivan -- sold by Kerry; €25 Mike Flynn -- standing order; €25 Kathleen O’Sullivan -- sold at CYMS.

LGFA AGM: The AGM of the Laune Rangers Ladies committee will take place on Thursday next, November 25th at 8pm in JP O’Sullivan Park. All Laune Rangers members are encouraged to attend. New volunteer coaches and administrators are always welcome.

SENIOR MEN: Laune Rangers will contest the 2021 Mid Kerry Senior Championship Final following victory over Milltown/Castlemaine in Paddy Burke Memorial Park on Saturday afternoon, bringing to an end the two year reign of their hosts who won the title in 2019. Both sides had absentees for various reasons.

Milltown/Castlemaine were without Ciarán O’Connor, Donal Dennehy and Cormac Leane while Laune Rangers had to make do without Seán Cleary, Conor Murphy, Jack O’Connor and Matt Leslie as well as long term absentee David Mangan. This, of course provided an opportunity for others to lay their claim to a jersey on both teams. The notable inclusion for the home team was that of goalkeeper Derek Twiss, while standing in front of him at full forward for Rangers was Mike Frank Russell, who was making his first appearance in the competition since 2017. Another welcome returnee was Shane McSweeney after an injury filled year. Laune Rangers also started with Shane Doona at corner forward, who was making his first Senior appearance since pre-Covid.

The last time the teams met, the home side scored an early goal and lightning struck for a second time as Milltown/Castlemaine found the net after a couple of minutes -- Jonathan O’Sullivan’s point attempt coming back off the crossbar into the path of Cathal Moriarty who smashed the ball into an empty net. Laune Rangers were quite wasteful in the opening stages, spurning a few chances, but got on the board with a well taken point by John Tyther. Ten minutes would pass before the game’s next score, as Shane Doona scored a super point to narrow the gap, but Cathal Moriarty cancelled it out with a point to see Milltown/Castlemaine going into the 1st water break leading by 1-1 to 0-2. Kieran Carroll extended the Milltown/Castlemaine lead with a point but Shane Doona replied with another excellent point. Milltown/Castlemaine were given an opportunity to put five between the sides in the 26th minute when Cathal Moriarty was fouled and adjudged to be inside the square for a penalty. However, Moriarty saw his shot saved by a super effort by Jason Browne who got down low to his left to tip the ball onto the post and out for a 45. A pointed free at the other end by Fiachra Clifford meant there was only the minimum between the sides at the break.

Half Time Score:- Milltown/Castlemaine 1-2, Laune Rangers 0-4.

The home side led by four with six minutes of the second half played as Jonathan O’Sullivan pointed two frees while Kieran McKenna pointed another from play. From then though, Laune Rangers put in an enormous effort to get back into the game. Kieran Doona stemmed the tide with a good point before John Tyther slotted a free. Laune Rangers took the lead in the 41st minute as a point effort dropped short to Derek Twiss before Gearóid Hassett dispossessed the goalkeeper. Twiss brought Hassett to ground causing the ball to spill and after a couple of slow-motion seconds, John Tyther tapped the ball to the net. Referee Paul Hayes consulted with his umpires who then raised a green flag to signal a goal. Milltown responded well to level the game with a point by Jonathan O’Sullivan, but Fiachra Clifford restored the visitors’ advantage with a pointed free to leave Laune Rangers ahead by 1-7 to 1-6 at the second water break. Fiachra Clifford doubled the Rangers lead with a point before tempers got overheated temporarily, pausing proceedings for a short while, but Rangers were not about to let their heads drop. The away side kept their focus on the resumption and Gearóid Hassett pointed to put his team three ahead. Cillian Burke replied with one for the hosts but Hassett added a super score to restore the three point cushion. As Milltown/Castlemaine pressed forward, Laune Rangers’ excellent backs overturned the ball and countered downfield, finding half time substitute Dáire Cleary who split the posts to make sure of the win as the final whistle was blown on the kickout. Full Time Score:- Milltown/Castlemaine 1-7, Laune Rangers 1-11. The penalty save by Jason Browne served as somewhat of a shift in momentum in the game -- had Cathal Moriarty scored, it may have seen Milltown build an insurmountable lead at the start of the second half. The return performances by the two Shanes - McSweeney and Doona - were excellent, as every player grew into the game.

However, it was the efforts of Seán Arthurs at full back for Rangers that stood out on a day that saw Rangers play with the oldest starting fifteen for a while - the 15 starting players averaging at a ripe old 26 years old! Milltown/Castlemaine:- Derek Twiss, Tadgh McCarthy, Gavin McKenna, Jonathan O’Connor, Stephen Roche, Pa Wrenn, Kieran Carroll (0-1), Brendan Delaney, David Roche (capt), Dylan O’Neill, Donal Kelliher, John Dennehy, Cathal Moriarty (1-1), Jonathan O’Sullivan (0-3, 2f), Cillian Burke (0-1). Subs: Jerome Flynn, Kieran McKenna (0-1), Craig Counihan. Laune Rangers:- Jason Browne, Kieran Crowley (capt), Seán Arthurs, Oisín Daly, Shane McSweeney, Patrick Carey, Eoin Clifford, Shane Daly, Peter Crowley, Fiachra Clifford (0-3, 2f), Kieran Doona (0-1), John Tyther (1-2, 1f), Shane Doona (0-2), Michael F Russell, Gearóid Hassett. Subs used: Dáire Cleary (0-1), Stephen Sealy for K Doona, Mark O’Connor for Tyther.

MINOR BOYS: Laune Rangers have defended the Central Region Minor Division1 title with victory over Ardfert in the Final played in John Mitchels Complex early on Sunday afternoon. It was a game that Rangers led from start to finish as Eoghan Hassett scored the first point of the game after 90 seconds, although there was a 12 minute wait for the next score in the game as Hassett tapped over two frees in as many minutes to leave Laune Rangers leading by 0-3 to 0-0 at the first water break.

Muiris Harty registered Ardfert’s first point of the game but the Rangers defence - led by Eoin Lynch - were frugal in allowing scores, and Rangers scored three more points through John Burke, Eoghan Hassett (free) and Darragh O’Grady to take a five point lead into the break. Half Time Score:- Laune Rangers 0-6, Ardfert 0-1.

John Burke pointed for Rangers in the first attack of the second half, while Eoghan Hassett added a point shortly after. Ardfert doubled their own tally with a point by Odhrán Ferris, but Hassett and O’Grady kicked two further points at the other end. These would turn out to be Rangers’ last scores, with Eric Walsh pointing to leave Laune Rangers leading by 0-10 to 0-3 at the second water break.

The final quarter saw a number of errors and attacking chances were sparce. A 56th minute goal by Robert Monaghan for Ardfert made for a nervous final few minutes, and a point by Eric Walsh left a goal between the sides. However, the Laune Rangers defence stood up to every challenge and time eventually ran out for Ardfert to see Rangers hold on to the Central Region Minor Division 1 title they had previously won in its last running in 2019.

Laune Rangers:- Adam Carey, Killian Spillane, Cathal O’Callaghan, Eoin Lynch, Tim Mangan, Ryan Diggin, Oisín Birmingham, Aona O’Shea, Tom Whittleton (capt), John Burke (0-2), Eoghan Hassett (0-6, 3f), Cillian Foley, Darragh O’Grady (0-2), Jack O’Sullivan, John Tuohy.

South Kerry Championship

Renard and St. Michael’s/Foilmore opened this years South Kerry Championship last Sunday in a dry but cold Con Keating Park in front of a large crowd.

St. Michael’s/Foilmore began the game with two attacks which resulted in Éanna O’Connor and Bernard Kelly sending the ball wide after good Renard defending. In the 3rd minute Éanna O’Connor pointed a free for St. Michael’s/Foilmore which was followed by a missed free from Éanna in the 5th minute. Renard responded with a great attack from Michael O’Leary who was fouled and Mark Sugrue pointed the resulting free which levelled the score. St. Michael’s/Foilmore went on the attack with Bernard Kelly shooting for a point but great defending by Fionán Kissane ensured the ball went to the wrong side of the post. Ciaran Clifford sent the ball wide for St. Michael’s/Foilmore in the 16th minute. Michael O’Leary made another strong run through the field and worked well with Sean Teahan to set up an attack which resulted in a free and Mark Sugrue was on hand to point it. During the next few minutes Renard worked well as a team but unfortunatley Rob Wharton and Mark Sugrue sent the ball just wide of the posts. In the 28th minute Éanna O’Connor went on the attack once again for St. Michael’s/Foilmore but Jack Kelly did very well to overturn the ball and set up a Renard attack with Rob Wharton pointing, which put Renard two points ahead. This was followed by a Kevin Kelly wide but Kevin made up for this by defending at the other end of the field. On the stroke of half-time Éanna O’Connor expertly curled a 45’ over the bar for St. Michael’s/Foilmore to reduce Renard’s lead to a single point. This ended the first-half on a scoreline of Renard: 0 - 03 St. Michael’s/Foilmore: 0 - 02.

Renard began the second-half with an attack which resulted in a 45’ but unfortuately on this occasion Mark Sugrue sent the ball wide. Bernard Kelly levelled the score with a point after Éanna O’Connor sent a long high free in towards the Renard box from the sideline. Sean Scanlon sent the ball wide for St. Michael’s/Foilmore before Mark Sugrue added a further Renard point after Renard patiently passed the ball around until a scoring opportunity arose.

In the 40th minute Eoin O’Neill cleared the ball off the Renard goalline after an Éanna O’Connor free into the Renard box, this resulted in a 45’ which Éanna sent wide. This was followed by a Renard wide from Brian Sugrue in the 42nd minute. Renard replied with a Mark Sugrue point after good teamwork throughout the field. St. Michael’s/Foilmore had two wides from Éanna O’Connor (45’) and Bernard Kelly before Mark Sugrue soared the highest to catch Pa McGill’s kickout, before passing it off to Rob Wharton who made a powerful run down the field and passed it into Eoghan McCrohan who fired the ball into the back of the net for the first and only goal of the game. St. Michael’s/Foilmore went on the attack once again with Cian O’Connor and James Moran working the ball towards the Renard goal before Brian Sugrue intercepted and cleared the danger to set up another Renard attack down the other end of the field, where Conor O’Leary added a Renard point. This was followed by a wide from James Moran before Pa McGill did excellently to catch the ball on the crossbar to deny Mark Griffin a point for St. Michael’s/Foilmore. Eoghan McCrohan shot for goal with the rebound from a Mark Sugrue 45’ but the ball went across the goal and wide. St. Michael’s/Foilmore continued to attack in the final few minutes with Kevin Griffin sending the ball wide in the 32nd minute. This was the last attack of the match which ended on a scoreline of Renard: 1 -- 06 St. Michael’s/Foilmore: 0 -- 03.

Well done to the players and management on a great win and qualifying for the semi final. A big thank you to St. Mary’s for the use of their field today. The semi final will take place during the weekend of 11th/12th December with the draw to take place at a later date.

Condolences: It was with great sadness that the club and wider Reenard community learned of the passing of Gerard (Casúr) O’Sullivan early on Wednesday morning. Gerard, a highly respected member of our community and club, was a true gentleman. His contribution to the club was immense. He supported all our fundraising efforts and will be remembered, in particular, for his involvement with our Cunamh and Variety shows. Gerard also made himself available if there was a job to be done at the field. Our thoughts and prayers are with his dear wife, Mary Anne, his sisters Doreen and Teresa, his brothers Michael, Jeremiah and Tim, his very special friend Earl Leahy and the extended O’Sullivan and O’Shea Families, at this very sad and difficult time. Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam.

Spa hosted Glenflesk on Sunday afternoon in Rd2 of the East Kerry Minor Championship and the game went right down to the wire.

It was point for point in the opening quarter, Aidan Cronin and Timmy Moynihan (2) on target for Spa while Glenflesk full forward Dylan Roche kicked four frees to give the visitors a narrow lead at the first half water break. Glenflesk dominated the second quarter, with Dylan Roche (2), Luke Crowley (2) and Darragh McCormack all adding points before Roche finished the ball in the back of the Spa goal right before the half time whistle. At the break, Spa were trailing 0-4 to 1-9.

Chris Healy goaled for Spa within seconds of the restart, with Aidan Cronin adding a point moments later. Dylan Roche landed two scores for Glenflesk before Aidan Cronin kicked another Spa point to make to 1-6 to 1-11. A great move by the Spa forward line was worked in to Timmy Moynihan who rattled the Glenflesk net at the end of the third quarter. Aidan Cronin was on target with the next free and by the second half water break Spa were very much back in the game, just a point between the sides at Spa 2-7 Glenflesk 1-11.

Aidan Cronin almost added another goal, but the keeper pulled off a great save. Luke Crowley increased the Glenflesk lead and shortly after they were threatening the Spa goal, but our keeper did well to keep the ball out. Glenflesk had a chance to go out of reach, but Spa goalie Jack O’Sullivan had a super save from the penalty spot with just five minutes left to play. Timmy Moynihan converted a free to again put the minimum between the sides as both teams were battling hard for scores. A final point from Luke Crowley finished the game at Spa 2-8 Glenflesk 1-13.

Glenflesk now go on to compete in the A championship while Spa go forward to the B championship semi-final against Fossa this Sunday November 28th (12noon in Spa) while Currow host Firies in the other semi-final.
