Raheen responded with their first goal on 10 mins when Paddy Rigney’s 80m free landed in the square and in the ensuing scramble Brian Kennedy got the necessary touch to send it into the net. Raheen added 3 points to C&R’s 1 before Raheen struck for goal no 2 on 21 mins when Ian Buckleyt blasted ito from the edge of the square over the head of the keeper into the top left corner of the net. C&R were not giving up and by the end of normal time struck 2-01 to Raheen’s 2 points to give themselves hope but it was quashed 2 minutes into stoppage time when their lineball just bacfk from the endline taken by Brian Corcoran sent into the square where Dean Pierce connected with it first time to blast it to the net and from the puck out the final whistle eas blown.

Raheen Junior Footballers will count themselves both lucky and unlucky as they had to settle for a draw with Durrow in the 3rd Rd of the Junior B Championship last Sunday morning in Durrow on a scoreline of 1-09 apiece. Raheen opened the scoring with the first 2 points before Durrow got off the mark with a goal on 6 mins followed by a point. Durrow were superior for the remainder of the half as they added 5 points to Raheen’s 3 before Raheen got a 45  in stoppage time which keeper Mark Byrne came up and slotted it over. This left just the goal in it at the break 1-06 to 0-06. The first 15 mins of the second half saw both sides add 2 points apiece. Then on 21 mins Ian Buckley intercepted a Durrow clearance and sent in a shot which was blocked down by the keeper where it was taken by Liam Gorman who struck it to the net for the equalising goal and Raheen went in front with 5 mins left when Conor McNally pointed a free. Then in the last min Raheen had a free just inside the Durrow half which was taken quickly where it was broken down and Durrow worked it upfield to knock over the equaliser. Raheen will now face St Rynaghs in the final round where a win will be necessary to qualify for the knockout stages.
