Abbey Rangers Juvenile Update

Abbey Rangers-our underage amalgamation with Ballykelly were in action on two fronts today, both games resulted in defeats. 

Abbey Rangers Under 14s hosted Rathangan in Kildangan and despite a great start by the Rangers, Rathangan eventually ran out winners on a scoreline of 4:11 to 1:08. This was in the Féile B competition, one round remains against Sallins next week before the league proper starts.

Abbey Rangers minor team travelled to Grangenolvin and came up against a very strong home team, where we suffered a comprehensive defeat. With all games completed in the minor league the team finished in fourth place, a creditable performance given the young age profile of most of the players.

Abbey Rangers V Moorefield Minor Match Report

19TH March 2017

Abbey Rangers made it two wins from three with a hard fought win over Moorefield at a wet and windy Kildangan on Sunday morning.

The opening quarter saw two Robert McGrath points come one each side of a Moorefield point. A Rangers attack up the right wing was then intercepted and a sweeping Moorfield move ended with a cracking goal into the top corner to put them 1.1 to 0.2 ahead. A second Moorefield goal chance was deftly snuffed out by a combination of Daniel Cawley and Cian Stafford-the move ended with a fine point at the other end from Brian Day to leave the Newbridge side one ahead.

With MJ Prendergast and Jack Smyth dominating in midfield, Rangers got a grip on the game and pushed hard and the scores followed. A Robert McGrath equaliser was quickly followed by a lead score from Daniel Gilbert. 

A quick move involving Dara Lovern, Mikey Delahunt and Alan O’Connell ended with Robert McGrath smashing the ball to the Moorefield net and the same player had a second goal shot brilliantly saved just moments later.

The visitors tried hard in the last few minutes of the half but Aaron O’Connor and Eoin O’Fearghail were in fine form in the Rangers defence. The whistle sounded at 1.5 to 1.1 in favour of Abbey Rangers. 

We struggled facing the strong wind in the early stages of the second half and Moorefield took full advantage, scoring three early points to leave just the minimum between us. A fifteen minute stalemate followed with the game in the balance before Daniel Gilbert finished a winding run with a low shot to the bottom corner of the net putting Rangers to restore the Rangers four point advantage. 

MJ Prendergast and Oisin Hyland combined to put Mikey Delahunt through for a superb long range point against the wind, as we took a grip on the game again. 

However Moorefield weren’t done and they brought a superb double save from Paddy Nicholls in the Rangers goal before finally getting through for a goal moments later, leaving just two in it with three minutes to play. The battle continued but with no further scores Rangers ran out two point winners at 2.6 to 2.4.

It was a great game between two hard working teams that could have gone any way. Our lads were excellent throughout and deserved the win some great individual performances.

Abbey Rangers Minors Match Report

posted 23 Feb 2017, 11:50 by rúnaí Cill Daingin


Abbey Rangers Minor footballers got the League off to a winning start in Ballykelly on Wednesday night with a hard fought win over Rheban. With Storm Doris showering rain upon the country all day, it was a late call to actually go ahead with the game given the heavy underfoot conditions.

A long ball from Eoin O’Fearghail led to Daniel Gilbert getting our first score of the season and Daniel followed with another point soon afterwards. Rheban pulled a point back before a penalty goal put them two ahead as we reached the mid-point of the half. 

A great move involving Stephen Keogh, Robert McGrath and Daniel Gilbert culminated in an Abbey Rangers penalty which Stephen duly dispatched to put us back in the lead again. A Rheban equaliser was quickly cancelled out by Stephen Keogh who pointed to leave us 1.3 to 1.2 up at half time.

We got a superb start to the second half and played some great football despite the dreadful conditions. Robert McGrath fired over a long range point and Daniel Gilbert and Mikey Delahunt added further scores to put us four ahead. An Alan O’Connell shot for a point was half blocked by the advancing Rheban goalkeeper and as the ball spun high into the square, Robert McGrath just about got above the Rheban full back to knock the ball over the line for a second Rangers goal.

Stephen Keogh added another point and we then missed a number of opportunities to kill the game off as we entered the final minutes. A Rheban goal following a goalmouth scramble started the nerves jangling and Paddy Nicholls had to be at his best to keep another goal bound shot out. It was backs to the wall for us for the last few minutes as Rheban pointed two more frees but the final whistle sounded at 2.7 to 2.4 in favour of Abbey Rangers.

It was a real gutsy performance from our lads who showed massive spirit to get the win. Pure hard work from the likes of Daniel Cawley, Liam Kehoe, Mikey Delahunt and Eoin O’Feargail was the basis for the win and well done to them all.
Our next game is away to Castlemitchell on Friday night (depending on what Doris does in the mean time!).
