Club News 27th August 2019 - 27/08/2019

In what has been one of the busiest weeks of the year in the club with matches , there are no words to describe how proud everyone is of the performance our Seniors gave in the Cork Gaa Senior Football Championship game on Sunday against St Finbarr's. 
They played their finest football of the season, they left everything they had on the pitch and died with their boots on out there. Immensely proud of the entire team and management and the huge effort they put in. In seven days they played 160 minutes of football with yesterday's performance exceptional and they can hold their heads up with pride at the classic game they served up to us all. 
After 20 minutes Rangers were ahead 1-04 to 0-03, the goal coming from John Hayes and had dominated proceedings all over the pitch.and were much sharper than their opponents. For the next ten minutes , The Barrs came into the game more and got 4 unanswered points and Rangers had a let off when Paul Shanahan in goal made a brilliant save from Sherlock . Half time score 1-05 to 0-09 in favour of the Barrs.
Rangers started the second half with intent and renewed energy and scored 5 points without reply to make it 1-09 to 0-07, totally dominating the game . A point from the Barrs was followed by a penalty to levels the sides again before Kevin McMahon gave Rangers the lead . Excellent goal keeping from the Rangers keeper Paul Shanahan led to a Rangers point from James O Riordain to put Rangers 2 in front. But the Barrs replied with 3 points to put them one ahead in the 59th minute. But Rangers worked the ball well and a foul on John O Rourke gave the outstanding John Hayes the chance to level matters which he duely did to take the game to extra time. 
The first period of ET saw both sides score two points each , but after 3 minutes into the second period of extra time, John Hayes scored a point to put Rangers ahead by one but it was the last time they were to lead as the Barrs levelled soon after and then came the decisive score, a goal with time almost up, to put the Barrs ahead by 3. 
Rangers did their best to get that goal that they needed but it wasn't to be and the Barrs won 2-17 to 1-17.
Once again, the club would like to express their pride in the performance given by the players and their hard work all year as well as that of the management.

Carbery Rangers are through to the semi final of The Premier 2 U16 Football Championship after their hard fought and impressive win against Agahada FT score 2-11 to 2-09.
Within seconds of the thrown in , Aghada had goaled but Rangers stayed calm and focused and by the 9th minute were ahead 1-04 to 1-00 after a cracker of a Daragh Calnan goal , 2 Peadar O Rourke points and one from Niall Keane. Peadar got another great goal after some great team work and at half time Rangers were ahead 2-05 to 1-04. They defended well, with all the defenders playing great football. Around the middle, we were winning some great balls and also the breaks ,as a result the forwards were getting good ball and using it well 
The second half was edge of your seat style football with both sides going for it with everything they had. Excellent play all over the pitch and super scores from Ciaran Santry , Jack Kevane and Daragh Calnan had Ranges looking impressive heading into the last 10 minutes but Aghada scored a goal on the 21st min to put the minimum between the teams, 2-09 to 2-08 in favour of Ross. It was end to end stuff from there on, with the minimum separating the sides and despite Aghada 's best efforts at getting a goal, they couldn't get through the Ross defense or pass the impressive Darragh Twomey in goal, and after 5 minutes of injury time were well deserving of their two point win.
Team : Darragh Twomey, Patrick Daly David O Dwyer Killian Eady Eamon Hodnett Seamus O Mahony Sam Linehan Jack Kevane 0-02 Michael Maguire Peadar O Rourke 1-01 Niall Keane 0-01 Darragh Calnan 1-02 Andrew Kevane Conor Twomey Ciaran Santry 0-05

Our U14's had a tough battle in The Rebel Og West U14 Football Championship Division 2 Winner's Round against Naomh Abán in Castletownkennigh.
Naomh Abán were physically stronger and our very young team found it hard to break through their defence but credit to the young Rangers , they never gave up and have another go in the quarter final. Cian Barry had an excellent game in goal saving a penalty in the first half.

Congratulations to Carbery Rangers U12's who had an outstanding win in the Rebel Og West U12 Football League Division 2 Football Semi-final and are now through to the final against Castlehaven in Ardagh this Thursday August 29th at 7pm.
They overcame a very physical Newcestown playing stylish football and working hard all over the pitch. 
From the thrown in Rangers dominated and persisting fouling was punished by the Rangers free taking abilities of Dylan O Neill and Eric Hicks . 
Rangers were awesome in defense, turning over possession on numerous occasions, with Pádraig Tobin controlling proceedings from the back. Our midfielders fed the forwards with quality ball and worked tirelessly throughout. Upfront , the forwards were superb as a unit and the style of football they played was exceptional. 
Rangers raced into a 7 point lead before Newcestown got 2 goals just before half time to leave Ross ahead at half time 1-07 to 2-01. 
In the second half Rangers were awarded several frees and Newcestown were reduced to 14 men after 9 mins. Dominating all over the pitch and giving an excellent team display , Rangers were deserved winners, 1-18 to 3-02.

The very best of luck to both Kelan Scannell and Barry Kerr and the Cork team and management, that play in this Sunday's All Ireland Minor Football Final in Croke Park against Galway at 1pm . The game is live on RTE.
A fantastic achievement for both boys to be part of the squad and they have both trained extremely hard over the last number of months with the Cork Minors, with Kelan playing at midfield in their last few championship games. A huge honour for both boys and a proud day for their families, friends and the club. Best of luck to all involved.

Well done to Cork West who beat The City in the U14 Regional Final in Pairc Ui Chaoimh last Saturday in an outstanding game of football. Congratulations to Carbery Ranger's Ronan Hayes who played with the West and scored a point.
