Finuge 0-7

Laune Rangers 0-7


Senior Development Team travelled to Finuge on Saturday hoping to continue their run of recent wins but soon discovered nothing was going to come easy in Finuge.  Finuge opened the scoring for the home side and Matt Leslie equalised seconds later.  With Fingue setting up defensively, Laune Rangers found it difficult to break down, first half ended Finuge ahead by 2 points.


Finuge 0-5, Laune Rangers 0-3.


For the second half, Laune Rangers reorganized their set up and performed much better.  With some great work in Laune Rangers defence from the full back line Cathal O’Callaghan, Evan Madden and Eoin O’Connell they kept Finuge to 0-2 points for the second half.  Ciarán O’Sullivan, Killian Spillane and Niall T O’Brien working the ball out and helping their teammates who were trying to breakdown the Finuge defence.  Laune Rangers were down 2 points with 5 minutes remaining, when Ciarán O’Sullivan won Laune Rangers kickout, worked the ball up the field through several players, resulting with Ciarán passing the ball to Cian who kicked a point.  Laune Rangers went on to win the next kickout and went on the attack, but the ball went wide.  Laune Rangers won possession in middle of the field and played a patient game knowing they were down a point, they had to retain possession, Cian O’Shea kicked a point in and raised a white flag.  It was all level in Finuge.  Referee blew the full-time whistle after the Finuge kickout.
