Raheen Intermediate Footballers got the 2012 playing campaign underway last Friday evening as they took on Ferbane in Geashill in Round 1 of the Div 1 Football League and it was Ferbane who claimed the win on a scoreline of 1-12 to 1-07 but were pushed all the way in a game played from end to end throughout. Raheen were first off the mark with the opening 2 points before Ferbane got going and near the end of the half Ferbane had built up a lead 6 points to 3 but Raheen ended the half as Liam Gorman put over 2 frees to go in at the break trailing by the minimum 0-06 to 0-05. The opening 10 mins of the second half proved to be the turning point as Ferbane pulled clear as they registered 1-03 to Raheen’s single point. With 10 mins to go Raheen gave themselves hope of a comeback when Keith Quinns shot from over 30m out was blocked down by the keeper and Liam Gorman was on hand to palm the ball into the net. This was followed immediately by a point from Richie Reynolds but this proved to be Raheen’s final score and Ferbane closed out the game with 3 more points to seal the win.
