Match Report

Donal Curtin Cup

 

Laune Rangers: 1-18

Firies: 1-09

 

Flexachem sponsored Laune Rangers Senior Ladies had a comprehensive win over Firies on Sunday afternoon and have now recorded back-to-back wins.

Laune Rangers started the game strongly kicking 3 points in the opening 5 minutes, however Firies worked the ball forward and struck for a goal, Firies then kicked another point from play in their next attack. Laune Rangers recovered well though and kicked 2 further points of their own with Firies replying with a point from a free to level the scores in Killorglin with 15 minutes played in first half. Laune Rangers 0-5, Firies 1-2.

Laune Rangers steadied themselves and became more accurate with their passing and created several chances scoring another 4 points in the next 5 minutes with Kayleigh McGlashan, Isabella Doherty and 2 points from Sara Leslie. The work rate by Laune Rangers was superb, the backs were successfully preventing Firies from getting any clear-cut chances with the home team using this platform to build attacks from. Sara Leslie found the back of Firies net when she received a great pass from Aine Hassett.  Laune Rangers were ahead at the short whistle.

 

Half-Time: Laune Rangers 1-11, Firies 1-4

 

The second half saw Laune Rangers start with the same momentum as they finished the first, first score of second half came from the boot of captain Meadhbh Johnson. The forwards were supplied with some great ball from the backs and midfield which resulted in Kayleigh McGlashan and Sara Leslie adding 2 more points to extend Laune Rangers lead. Firies tried hard to get back into the game but Laune Rangers were well organised to cut out any danger and finished the game stronger to run out convincing winners.

Laune Rangers travel to ISG next weekend for the next round of Credit Union Donal Curtin Cup competition – game takes place on Friday evening at 7:30pm in Dromore GAA Grounds, Blackwater Bridge.

 

Full-Time score: Laune Rangers 1-18 to 1-09 Firies
