Mid Kerry Senior League

Old rivals Milltown/Castlemaine and Laune Rangers squared up in Milltown in the Mid Kerry League on Saturday night. The game started with a quick point by Cathal Moriathy and 2 minutes later Laune Rangers keeper Jason Browne made a great save from Gavin Horan. In the next 10 minutes, Laune Rangers got a stronghold and put over 3 points without reply. From then on Donal Dennehy, David Roche and Mike Burke got on top around the middle and some good support play all round allowed Milltown Castlemaine kick 7 un anwered points-the pick of them being one from Jeremiah Hayes. Laune Rangers kicked a free at the end to leave the score 8 points to 4 points at half time.

Milltown Castlemaine started the second half on the front foot- out scoring Laune Rangers 3 to 1 in the opening 15 minutes of the second half. Laune Rangers at this stage had a man sent off, and from there an already uphill battle became impossible. Further points from David Roche,Mike Burke,Cathal Moriathy and a goal from Ciaran Griffin had Milltown Catlemaine running up the scoreboard. Laune Rangers scored 2 further points.

The highlight of the night for Milltown /Castlemaine was the evergreen Mike Burke chipping the keeper to score a wonderful goal. The final score was 2-15 to 0-7 points. This was a good win for a young side from Milltown Castlemaine.
