Raheen Intermediate Footballers put in a much improved performance but were unlucky to suffer another defeat in their Div 1 League encounter against Tullamore in O’Brien Pk, Tullamore last Friday evening on a scoreline of 2-08 to 2-06. Midway through the first half both sides had got off the mark with 3 points apiece. Then Raheen were awarded a penalty when Richie Reynolds was brought down in the area which was dispatched to the net for the opening goal by Paddy Rigney.Raheen added 2 more points to Tullamore’s 1 before the break and so Raheen led at half time 1-05 to 0-04. In the first 20 mins of the second half Tullamore turned the momentum in their favour as they scored 1-03 without reply to go back in front. Both sides then added a point apiece before Tullamore sealed the win with by scoring their second goal in the last min. Then in stoppage time Raheen were awarded another penalty for a pickup in the box and again Paddy Rigney fired his shot to the net but the final whistle came straight from the kickout.
