UNDER 13 BOYS BLUE: A strong breeze blowing from the road end of Paddy Burke Memorial Park on Sunday evening made for a proverbial ‘game of two halves’ in the County Under 13 Division 1 tie between Milltown/Castlemaine and Laune Rangers. The first quarter of the game was one sided, as Laune Rangers pointed through Mikey Hynes, Charlie Foley and Cormac Sweeney in the opening 90 seconds. Hugh O’Sullivan struck for the first goal of the game and Darragh McKenna pointed a free before Milltown/Castlemaine registered their first point with a free against the breeze. Hugh O’Sullivan & Callum Robertson added points before Robertson scored Rangers’ second goal to leave Laune Rangers leading by 2-6 to 0-1 at the midway point of the first half. Points were added by Odhran Foley (free), Hugh O’Sullivan (free) and Charlie Foley before the home side scored their second pointed free. Milltown/Castlemaine pointed twice more (one free) before Hugh O’Sullivan & Kieran Patton replied for Rangers and Callum Robertson scored his second goal. A last kick of the half goal for Milltown/Castlemaine was well timed as the home team trailed by 13 at the break. Half Time Score:- Milltown/Castlemaine 1-4, Laune Rangers 3-11. With the breeze now at their backs for the second half, Milltown/Castlemaine began to close the gap on their guests with 2 goals and two points (1 free) in the third quarter to leave Laune Rangers ahead by 3-11 to 3-6 at the midway point of the second half. Four more points (one free) left Milltown/Castlemaine trailing by a single point, but that was as close as they would come on the scoreboard. A goal by Callum Robertson completed his hat-trick and put Rangers ahead by four points, before the home side replied with a goal of their own to cancel it out, but Laune Rangers – with the excellent Charlie Foley back on the field having gone off before half time – took over from here and made sure of their win. Callum Robertson and Odhran Foley (free) pointed before Foley struck for Rangers 5th goal. Milltown/Castlemaine pointed a free but Callum Robertson nullified it with the final point of the game to see Laune Rangers win by a six point margin. Full Time Score:- Milltown/Castlemaine 4-11, Laune Rangers 5-14. Laune Rangers Blue:- Luke Carey, Fionn McGillycuddy, Eugene Mulligan, Noah Eaton, Donnacha Prendiville, Charlie Foley (0-2), Fionán O’Connor, Mikey Hynes (0-1), Conor Murphy, Cormac Sweeney (0-1), Hugh O’Sullivan (1-3, 1f), Callum Robertson (3-3), Darragh McKenna (0-1), Kieran Patton (0-1), Odhran Foley (1-2, 2f). Subs used:- James Kearney, Peter O’Shea.
UNDER 13 BOYS WHITE: Another game of two halves took place earlier on Sunday evening, as Laune Rangers White Team enjoyed victory over Milltown/Castlemaine. Playing against a strong wind in the first half, Laune Rangers struggled to make headway, as periods of sustained possession failed to yield scores, and they had Tommy Foley to thank for keeping them in the match. Half Time Score: Milltown/Castlemaine 0-9, Laune Rangers 1-1. The second half saw the introduction of James Kearney to midfield with Odhran Clifford moving to the half-forward line, and Billy Gannon moving to the full forward line. These changes, coupled with the strong breeze at their backs, led to the Rangers taking over proceedings immediately from the throw in, with Liam O’Shea scoring a point followed by another from James Kearney before Tommy Foley struck for his second goal. This was followed by further points by Liam O’Shea (2), Odhran Clifford and Tommy Foley (2), with Milltown/Castlemaine scoring a point in reply, before Liam O’Shea scored a fantastic goal from a 45, which he followed up immediately with another point after winning the kick out. Milltown/Castlemaine scored a goal of their own, but this was answered by a point from Oisin Clifford – just reward for all his hard work from centre forward – before Odhran Clifford scored 1-1 in quick succession. Tommy Foley scored another point before the scoring was finished by Jack Buckley with a well taken goal. Playing against the wind in the first hald, Rangers had been under pressure and the scoreline could have been much higher for the home side but for some great defending by Mikey Dwyer, Jaego Ferris and Fionan Quigg in goals. Despite the difficulties of the half, Rangers never panicked, nor did they allow their heads to drop. The introduction of James Kearney and his brother Sean in the second half saw a much improved performance from the Rangers, especially from O’Shea brothers Liam & Peter and Tommy Foley, which allowed the team to run out comfortable winners in the end. Full Time Score: Milltown/Castlemaine 1-10, Laune Rangers 5-12. Laune Rangers White:- Fionán Quigg, Ciarán Brennan, Mikey Dwyer, Darragh Henken, Daire Carroll, Henry Whittleton, Jaego Ferris, Liam O’Shea, Odhran Clifford, Billy Gannon, Oisín Clifford, Peter O’Shea, Tommy Foley, Myles Cahill, Jack Buckley. Subs: James Kearney, Seán Kearney.
