Raheen Intermediate Footballers waited until the last round of the League to finally pickup their first win of the year chalking it up against fellow parish side and last year’s Junior Championship winners Ballinagar in Rd 7 of the Div 3 League last Thursday evening in Ballinagar on a scoreline of 3-08 to 1-06. Both sides were without the services of a number of influential players so a tight cagey affair was on the cards. Raheen were first on the scoreboard as Richie Reynolds slotted over the opening point with the first attack right from the throw in and he added another from a free moments later. Ballinagar were given the opportunity to open their account in the 9th minute when they were awarded a penalty which Jacob Beatty stood over and slotted it to the left corner of the net for what would prove to be their only goal which gave them the lead. The lead was short lived as Raheen responded with 3 points in a row including 1 from corner back David Carthy over the next 5 minutes to draw level and go back in front. Then in the 16th minute Raheen struck for their first goal as a Raheen kickout was won by Conor Carroll in midfield who sent it in to Richie Reynolds and he gave it off to Lee Mulpeter in the clear and he dispatched it to the net. The sides added a point apiece over the next 10 minutes before Ballinagar added 2 more in the time remaining of the half so at the break it was Raheen with the lead 1-06 to 1-03. Raheen’s first 2 scores of the second half clinched the result in their favour as they struck 2 goals both scored by James Lalor, the first Conor Carroll’s free in midfield sent down the line to Lee Mulpeter to run in and lay it off to James to fire it to the net, the second in the 7th minute a quick free by Richie Reynolds just inside the 21 picked out James on the edge of the square and he coolly slotted it to the net. With the result now in the bag the remainder of the game saw just 5 more points with Ballinagar getting 3 to Raheen’s 2 and so Raheen see it out to claim the win on an 8 point margin. While this game completes the League programme for both sides attention will now switch to the Championship which is due to get underway in just over 6 weeks time where Raheen’s opponents in the first round of the Intermediate Championship will be a re-match against Ballinagar.
RAHEEN: Brian Corcoran, David Carthy (0-01), Eamon Bolger, Mikey Keogh, Jack Keogh, James Lalor (2-00), Reece Seery, Adam Kelly, Niall Dempsey, Dylan Cahill, Kaelyn Thompson (0-04), Mikey Buckley (0-01), Lee Mulpeter (1-00), Conor Carroll, Richie Reynolds (0-03).
