Played at a blistering pace, Rangers were beaten by Ballincollig in the Premier 1 Minor Football Championship Semi-final,  1-08 to 1-04 in Cloughduv on Wednesday night last. Having beaten Ballincollig in the winner's round of the competition,  Rangers had the lead for large spells of the game . Evan Browne opened the scoring with a point, followed by a point on the turn from Paul Hodnett.  Ballincollig replied with two points and but for Ranger's goalie,  Araon O Brien , who was outstanding through out, Ballincollig could have had a goal . Minutes later, the net was rattled at the other end when Paul Hodnett converted from the penalty spot . Another point from Ballincollig just before the half time whistle, meant Rangers lead 1-02 to 0-03 at half time after  a very tight and competitive first half and everything to play for in the second. 
Both sides exchanged points early in the second half, Rangers through a well taken Caolan Hayes point before the turning point came fifteen minutes in. A scramble in the Ross goal ended in Ballincollig finding the net and this spurred their momentum and gave them a one point lead entering the final quarter. Three further points put them four ahead and despite Ranger's frantic efforts they couldn't get the scores  they needed. A Jack O Regan free reduced  Ballincollig's lead to three points with injury time looming and a pointed free with two minutes gone in injury time was the insurance point Ballincollig needed to advance to the final, full time score,  Carbery Rangers 1-04 Ballincollig 1-08.
Hard luck to Rangers who worked hard through out , in a game which wasn't over until Ballincollig got their insurance point in injury time. They had an excellent year with two great victories in their previous games against the two teams who are now in the final, Ballincollig and Douglas.

An outstanding display by the U12's ended in heart break at the final whistle for these young Rangers when they played Macroom in the final in Clon on Sunday evening, Full Time Score, Carbery Rangers 1-10 Macroom 1-12.
Their skill, work rate, team play are to be commended in what was an outstanding game and in the end it was Macroom's physical advantage that was the difference between the two sides.  
Dylan O Neill opened the scoring for Ross within seconds of the throw in with a top class goal and both sides exchanged scores before Rangers took the lead after 10 mins, a lead they never lost  until the 25th minute of the second half.  Rangers defended in numbers , their work rate and passing from the backs up to the forwards  was  top class and Adam Baker in goal pulled off some excellent saves  At half time the sides were level 1-06 each and the large support was enjoying every minute of it. The second half was played like the first, Rangers working hard all over the pitch,  and with 24 minutes gone,  the sides were level 1-10 each . At this stage,  Macroom's physical advantage told and they scored two points without reply and held on to win , full time score,  Carbery Rangers 1-10 Macroom 1-12. 
Heart breaking for the young Rangers , but they, along with their management can be very proud of their superb performance in the final and in all their games this year.
