Raheen Senior Footballers can feel no shame as they were unlucky to suffer their first defeat of the year to the the reigning Div 1 League winners Clara in Rd 3 of this year’s Div 1 League last Friday evening in Geashill on a scoreline of 1-10 to 1-07. Clara opened the scoring with a point straight fom the throw in. Raheen then got going and by half time Raheen led 0-05 to 0-03. Clara again pointed from the throw in to cut the defecit to the minimum before taking the lead on 5 mins as they got through to score a goal and they extended the lead over the next 20 mins adding 5 points to Raheen’s 2. Then with 2 mins left Raheen gave themselves a lifeline when Paddy Rigney’s high ball in picked out Dylan Hyland who coolly fired his shot into the top right corner of the net for the goal to leave just 2 in it but in stoppage time Clara wrapped it up with the final point.

RAHEEN: James Boland, Cathal Maher, Liam Boland, Mikey Keogh, Niall Dempsey (0-01), Brian Corcoran, Paddy Arnold, Brian Kehoe, Ben Ridgeway, Dylan Hyland (1-01), Danny McEvoy, Jack Keogh, Paddy Rigney (0-04), Donie Boland, John Crombie (0-01).

SUBS: Tommy Spollen (for Donie Boland), Johny Byrne (for Liam Boland).
