Club News 23rd July 2019 - 23/07/2019

Carbery Rangers travelled to Ahiohill on Monday evening to play Valley Rovers in the losers round of the P2 U16 Football Championship and needed to win to stay in the competition.
Playing a very strong and fancied Valley Rovers,  Rangers put in a huge effort all over the pitch and had the very strong wind in their favour for the first half. 
Peadar O Rourke opened the scoring but Valleys soon levelled before going 2 points to one up . After thirteen minutes the sides were level three points each, when Darragh Twomey in goal for Rangers pulled off a magnificent and crucial save.  Both sides exchanged points and Valleys were one point up 0-05 to 0-04 when Ciaran Santry slotted home a goal to the right of the Valleys keeper to put Rangers ahead 1-04 to 0-05 with 27 minutes gone.. Another Ciaran Santry point and a free from Peadar O Rourke gave Rangers a four point lead at half time 1-06 to Valley's 0-05.
Having played with the aid of a very strong wind, it looked like Rangers lead of 1-06 to 0-05 might not have been enough given the strength of the wind but a fantastic performance in a very tough and physical second half  saw Rangers hold on to win 2-09 to 0-10 wuth a few few positional changes paying off .Within seconds of the restart another point from Peadar O Rourke streched Rangers lead to 1-07 to 0-05 but for the next 19 minutes it  was Rovers who did the scoring, getting four points on the trot to have only a point seperating the teams with eleven minutes remaining.  But Rangers stayed composed , while Valleys had a player red carded for a second yellow.Points from Ciaran Santry and Conor Twomey and one from Valleys had only two points separating the sides entering injury time. Despite Valleys best efforts to get a goal, outstanding defending by Rangers  meant their was no way through for them . A clinical finish from Conor Twomey at the other end  added another goal for Rangers with time up and gave them a deserving win.
Full Time Score,  Carbery Rangers 2-09 Valley Rovers 0-10.

Cork lost their second Super 8's game which rules them out of progressing further.  Yet they can be proud of what they achieved and their huge improvement in the last few months.
Well done to John O Rourke who is a big part of the team.
