The other two goals by Daire Hogan and Jack McGrath were ably assisted by Darragh Clifford and Stevie Gannon respectively in a super team display, especially in the second half.

UNDER 13 GIRLS: Laune Rangers Under 13 Girls faced Finuge/St Senans in the County D Championship Final last week, and the girls in blue came away with the cup after a super performance.  The early exchanges were tight, as Laune Rangers took a 0-2 to 0-1 lead into the first water break, as Sarah O’Brien pointed two frees for Rangers.  However, the second quarter saw Laune Rangers put in a fantastic performance to take a twelve point lead into the break.  FSS had levelled soon after the water break, but Rangers then hit their stride and points by Sarah O’Brien (2, 1 free), Riadh O’Sullivan and Niamh O’Sullivan accompanied goals by Dwyer sisters Erin & Aisling.  Riadh O’Sullivan added another goal before FSS scored their third point just before the short whistle.  Half Time Score:- Laune Rangers 3-6, Finuge/St Senans 0-3.  FSS started brightly after the restart and scored a quickfire goal and point, which was badly needed by them.  However, Rangers settled and scored points from play through Aisling Dwyer (2) and Sarah O’Brien to see them leading by 3-9 to 1-4 at the second water break.  Aisling Dwyer added two more points and her team’s fourth goal, as FSS pointed twice more before the game’s end.  Full Time Score:- Laune Rangers 4-11, Finuge St/Senans 1-6.  Laune Rangers Team:- Leah Russell, Kate Costello, Kate McGeever, Amy Callan, Sarah Patton, Jacqueline Owens, Amie Moriarty, Riadh O’Sullivan 1-1, Niamh O’Sullivan (0-1), Sally McGillycuddy, Sarah O’Brien (0-5, 3f), Saoirse O’Shea, Aoibhín O’Sullivan, Aisling Dwyer (2-4), Erin Dwyer (1-0).  Subs: Zoe Conway, Sophie Donnelly, Anna O’Donnell, Annie Clifford, Grace Costello, Lauren Francis, Lexi Guilfoyle, Roisín Lawson, Alesha Williams, Ummi Shinohara, Kiri McGrath, Eimear Murphy, Aoibheann Moloney, Ella Foley.

Laune Rangers Under 13 Girls winning squad

LGFA SEASON: The win for the U13 Girls brings to a close the 2021 season for the LGFA wing of our Club.  Well Done and huge thanks to every coach that gave so freely of their time.  Our U6 to U10 nursery on Wednesday evenings had unprecendented success in terms of player numbers, as our Under 12 and Under 14 squads who fielded two teams each in 2021.  Our U16s had lower numbers and relied heavily on the U14 squad, but put in great effort all season to reach a League Semi Final.  Our Minors reached a County League Final in their maiden season and we look forward to fielding a Minor team again next year.  Our Seniors made it to the Semi final of both competitions they entered in a year of great progression for a young team.  We thank every player who donned a Laune Rangers LGFA jersey this season and look forward to seeing you all back in 2022.  Final thanks go to the officers of our LGFA committee led by Chairperson Selina O’Connor and Secretary Loretta Patton who organised everything so thoroughly, and to the Covid Officers who ensured we complied with all regulations in a challenging 2021 season.
