U16 Central Region Div 1 Final Austin Stacks 5-12 (27) Laune Rangers 2-9 (14)
This Div 1 final played last evening (Monday May 1st) in Milltown saw Stacks face a fancied Laune Rangers side who had defeated them by 5 points in the opening round of this competition but 2 quick goals inside of 3 minutes set the tone for the evening and it was the Rock who led throughout. Leading at HT by 4-4 to 1-3 there was no let up in the 2nd half with Laune Rangers only getting to within 8 points of the Stacks mid way through the 2nd half before Stacks notched it up a gear again and pressed for home with a totally commanding performance.
