The U16s played St Nicks in the second round of the Premier 2 Under 16 football championship in Cloughduv last Friday night. Rangers raced into a 2-02 to 0-01 lead, the goals coming from Ciaran Santry and Evan Browne. But St Nicks slowly came into the game and at half time , Rangers were ahead 2-05 to 2-03. Nicks were first off the mark in the second half before Caolan Hayes scored an excellent pt to make it 2-06 to 2-05 to Rangers. While Ross were defending well, and the hard working midfielders Barry Kerr and Kelan Scannell were on top, St Nicks broke through and got a goal to leave Ross trailing 2-06 to 3-05. In a pulsating finish, excellent play from the outstanding Peadar O Rourke saw Darragh Calnan , who troubled the Nicks defence , goal to give Rangers a one point lead with ten minutes left , 3-06 to 3-05. It was end to end stuff for the remainder of the match and with 3 minutes left Nicks equalised but 2 super points from Kelan Scannell and Peadar O Rourke saw Rangers hold on, to win 3-08 to 3-06.
They play Valley Rovers in the next round in September.
