The minors had a  deserving win in the opening round of the P1 minor championship on Saturday against Douglas in Kilbrittain , by a single point, full time score Carbery Rangers 1-12  Douglas 0-14. The game was as close as the scoreline suggests throughout and Rangers were relieved when the ref blew the full time whistle after almost 7 minutes of injury time.
This was a superb team performance and despite being down to fourteen men ten minutes into the second half, the effort by everyone was huge all through the game. Araon O Brien pulled off some top class saves,  Rangers defended well in every position, dominated and  won  the breaks around the middle and played direct attacking  football ,running at the Douglas defence at every opportunity.
Playing with the aid of a strong wind, Douglas were two points ahead before Paul Hodnett opened Rangers account after seven minutes. Further points from Paul Hodnett, Eoghan Hayes, Danny Mcsweeney and Evan Browne  gave Ross the lead midway through the first half,  0-07 to 0-04 and they extended their lead  further when Ciaran Calnan and Paul Hodnett combined well before Paul Hodnett found Ciaran Santry and he made no mistake in scoring a well taken  goal on the 26th minute to put  Rangers ahead 1-07 to 0-04 . But Douglas responded with three unanswered points and at half time it was 1-07 to 0-07 In favour of Ross.
The second half started like the first ended, Douglas scoring three points on the trot to have the sides level after just two minutes. A point from Paul Hodnett gave Ross the lead but it was short lived as Douglas scored two from play to give them the lead for the first time since early in the first half with ten minutes gone in the second half. The came what could have been a turning point in the game, a red card was dished out to one of the Rangers defenders but the team's response was impressive  and points from Jp Eady and Paul Hodnett put them back in front by the minimum .
Douglas levelled on the 28th  minute and a free from Paul Hodnett nudged Rangers ahead in injury time  a lead they held onto , defending superbly to win 1-12 to 0-14.
