Kildangan 13s Through to Final Following Tight Test

posted by rúnaí Cill Daingin   [ updated ]

Well done to Kildangan Under 13s who emerged winners of a pulsating league semi final against Allenwood this morning. The final score was 6-08 to 6-03 in favour of Kildangan.

There was never more than a score or two between the teams, Allenwood always looking dangerous on the break as they worked the overlap very well, a couple of close in goal shots went wide or out for a '45 when a point would have been a better option. Kildangan, made much better use of their limited possession and took some superb scores including a couple of cracking goals.

Kildangan will play St Kevins in the final next weekend, venue and time will be announced later.

Kildangan Under 13s Secure Semi Slot

posted 18 Sep 2017, 11:57 by rúnaí Cill Daingin

With four wins from five in the U13 league, Kildangan have secured a home semi-final. Kildangan secured full points against Confey, Two Mile House, Allenwood and Ballykelly. Unfortunately a two point defeat to St Kevins means that we must await a play off to determine whether we finish first or second in the competition.
Either way its a tremendous achievement for a very young team playing on a full sized pitch with adult goals. Details of the semi final fixture will be posted here following the final round of games.

Abbey Rangers Secure Under 16 Title

U16 C Shield final Friday 09/09/2017 Hawkfield

Abbey Rangers 4-11 to 2-14 Carbury.

The Under 16 shield final produced a thrilling game between two teams intent on playing fast and open football-a wonderful advertisement for what Gaelic Football can be. 

It was a game of four quarters. Abbey Rangers really set out their stall in an incredible starting eight minutes with 2-3 on the board leaving Carbury shell shocked. 

Although it was early days, Carbury could have been forgiven for letting the rest of the game slip by, but in a fantastic turn-around they organised themselves and rallied. Their new found rhythm delivered them a well deserved 1-8 almost without reply and the contest was level for a time with the break looming. Some of the Carbury point taking was top drawer as the recycled the ball until the found a team mate in a better position. 

Rangers rallied to get back in the game coming to the break. Half time and the score was Rangers 2-7 to Carbury 1-8. 

Abbey Rangers U16 Final V Carbury

When play re-started Rangers again showed their class and extended the lead with some of the best scores at any game in Hawkfield that evening.

Carbury were again on the back foot. Their character re-emerged, with some fast flowing plays that delivered brilliantly taken scores ensuring that this match wouldn't be decided until the final whistle. .

Late in the game Carbury, trailing by 7 points realised they needed to hit the net or time would run out, and they did just that when awarded a penalty with minutes remaining. The penalty hit the top corner of the net and it was game on. 

A subsequent free and converted point for Rangers meant that Carbury urgently required another goal, with almost four minutes of additional time already played. What proved to be the final assault on the Rangers goal was eventually cleared and the final whistle came to Rangers relief.

This match was one of the fastest flowing end to end games of the season for Rangers, and either team would have been worthy winners, but Rangers prevailed-just.

Abbey Rangers Minors Resume Winning Ways

Minor Football Championship Round 2-Abbey Rangers v Rheban  

22nd August 2017   at St. Laurences GAA

Abbey Rangers Minors recorded a comprehensive victory over Rheban in Round 2 of the championship on Tuesday evening 22nd August.  Early scores from Brian Day and Daniel Gilbert set us on our way and Josh Lawler and Jack Smyth were battling hard around the middle to keep the supply of ball going in.

We got a somewhat fortunate goal when a long ball into the square ended up in the net off the foot of a Rheban defender but a second soon followed and it was a cracker. Aaron Behan intercepted a Rheban attack and started a move up that swept through the field via Josh Lawler and Robert McGrath and culminated with Daniel Gilbert slotting the ball past the Rheban goalkeeper.

Rheban began to get a grip on the game mid way through the half, our half back line of Dara Lovern, Cian Stafford and Eoin O’Fearghail stood firm and drove the Rangers lads forward at every opportunity. Further scores followed from Jack Smyth, Robert McGrath, Josh Lawler, Shane Lawler and Eoin O’Fearghail as we stormed into a 3.11 to 0.1 lead by half time with Daniel Gilbert bagging a second goal.

In the early stages of the second half the game began to degenerate as our lads continued their dominance and the referee blew a very premature end to the game.

While it was a very comprehensive win in the end, our lads put in a superb display of fast, attacking football and linked up for some great scores. Moorefield are our next opposition on Tuesday evening in Nurney and we’ll need to repeat tonight’s performance to continue our winning ways.

Kildangan V Ardclough Part Three

posted 19 Aug 2017, 10:07 by rúnaí Cill Daingin   [ updated 19 Aug 2017, 10:07 ]

Kildangan Seniors play Ardclough for the third time in this Senior Football Championship in Caragh on Monday evening 21st August (throw in 7.15). 

Following a single point defeat to Ardclough in the group stages the two teams met again in the Quarter final last Monday evening in Clane. Despite the torrential rain the referee decided to go ahead with the game. Fortunately sanity prevailed at half time and the game was abandoned as the rain bucketed down. 

Kildangan were two points up at that stage and seemed to have the measure of the Ardclough defence. Having said that, Ardclough missed their fair share of scores as the heavy rain and wind made points hard to come by. Both teams know that this is do or die football as they face off against each other for a third time. For those travelling Caragh GAA is located in the village of Prosperous.
