Match Report

Laune Rangers v John Mitchels – County League

Laune Rangers 2:10

John Mitchels 2:09


Laune Rangers hosted John Mitchels this evening in JP O’Sullivan Park in a rescheduled game due to the weather conditions of late.

Laune Rangers welcomed back Ciarán Birmingham, Aaron Doyle and Patrick O’Donnell who are returning after being out injured.

The first half was a tight affair with both teams 5 points apiece at the short whistle – Adam O’Neill scoring 4 points and John Horgan one from play. Aaron Doyle who was returning after long term injury was brought on as a first half substitute.

Second half started with a consistent drizzle making underfoot conditions difficult. Both teams exchanged scores but then Colm Evans struck for great goal to put Laune Rangers up 5 points after 12 minutes of the 2nd half. However, this lead built up by the home team disappeared quickly with John Mitchell’s scoring two rapid fire goals. John Mitchell’s now a point ahead, with only minutes remaining were awarded a free that was converted by John Mitchels centre forward Gearoid White. The next few minutes saw possession exchanged a handful of times, however with seconds remaining on the clock, Laune Rangers down 0-2, won possession from their own kick out and worked the ball up the field to with a flurry of passes that finished with Charlie O’Sullivan getting on the end of it, to hit the net to put Laune Rangers a point up. Referee Billy O’Shea blew the final whistle just as John Mitchell’s goalkeeper kicked out the ball. Final Score – Laune Rangers 2-10 John Mitchell’s 2-9.

Credit to both teams who put on a great display of exciting football in difficult conditions.
