Raheen Hurlers got their Junior B Championship campaign off to a losing start as they went down to Ballinamere in their Rd 1 encounter last Sunday afternoon in Geashill on a scoreline of 3-13 to 2-07. Ballinamere opened the scoring with a goal straight from the throw in and added 2 points before Raheen got off the mark with a goal on 9 mins when Paddy Rigney’s run in and shot was blocked down by the keeper and scrambled into the net by Ian Buckley. The remainder of the half did not get any better for Raheen as they added just 2 pointed frees as Ballinamere pulled clear adding 2-07 to lead at the break 3-09 to 1-02. Both sides added 3 points apiece early in the second half before Raheen scored their 2nd goal on 23 mins when a 65 taken by Brian Corcoran landed in the square and flicked to the net by Keith Quinn. Raheen then added 2 more points from Stephen Pierce and Paddy Rigney before Ballinamere wrapped it up with the final point on the stroke of full time.
