Easy Win At Muirkirk

Muirkirk Juniors 0 Rangers 8

Rangers Under 20’s had a comfortable win against Muirkirk Juniors at Burnside Park tonight, with all due respect to Muirkirk the scoreline probably reflects the standard of opposition rather than a scintillating  Rangers performance. Muirkirk are not one of the top sides in Junior football but new coach Jose Quitongo will I’m sure bring an improvement given time.

Rangers took the lead after eight minutes, the home keeper failed to gather Darren Ramsay corner and Danny Stoney scored from close range. The game then went through a period where Rangers failed to covert any chances they created and the home side didn’t look capable of causing the Rangers defence any problems. The second goal eventually came eight minutes before the break, Darren Ramsay went past two defenders as he made his way along the eighteen yard line before passing to Ross McCrorie on the left side of the box and his cross come shot beat the keeper and found the far corner of the net.

A couple of minutes later Ryan Hardie was sent clear on the right where he continued into the box before passing inside for Danny Stoney to score with a simple finish.

Half-Time:- Muirkirk Juniors 0 Rangers 8

The second half was almost ten minutes old when Rangers scored a fourth, Darren Ramsay was in possession on the right hand byline and he passed to Danny Stoney inside the box,he side-stepped a defender before shooting past the keeper. The fifth followed five minutes later, Junior Ogen on the right side of the Muirkirk penalty area passed along the edge of the box to Darren Ramsay who’s shot found the bottom left hand corner.

Rangers then completed the scoring with a three goal burst either side of the half-hour. The first came when the Muirkirk defence missed a long ball and Kyle McAusland raced clear, he continued into the box before unselfishly knocking the ball to his left to given Ryan Hardie a tap in. A Darren Ramsay pass then allowed Kyle McAusland to break clear again and on this occasion he took the responsibility to find the net himself. The final goal came when Ryan Hardie broke down the left and into the penalty area before beating the keeper with a neat finish.
