Raheen Junior Footballers are through to the Semi Finals of the Div 5 League as they maintained their unbeaten year on the field of play by claiming a big win over the previously unbeaten Gracefield in Rd 7 (final rd) last Sunday morning in Geashill on a scoreline of 1-18 to 1-11. Gracefield opened the scoring with the first point with the first attack straight from the throw in. Raheen were up and running with their first point in the 2nd minute with a 45m free scored by Lee Mulpeter and they followed it up with 4 more points over the next 6 minutes with Gracefield replying with just a single point. Then in the 11th minute Gracefield struck for their goal as a Raheen kickout was blocked down and worked back in and dispatched to the net. Gracefield pushed on from here adding 6 points to 1 point for Raheen from Jimmy Nolan over the next 15 minutes. The sides then added a point apiece before Raheen ended the half as they started with another pointed free converted by Lee Mulpeter so at the break it was Gracefield holding a 4 point lead 1-09 to 0-08. The opening 10 minutes of the second half saw both sides add 2 points apiece. Raheen with the strong breeze behind then took full advantage of it over the next 10 minutes as they slotted over 5 points without reply to edge their noses back in front for the first time since early in the first half. Then in the 22nd minute came the decisive moment of the game as Raheen struck for their goal when Peter McKeagney made a great run up through the middle before passing inside to Stephen Pierce on the edge of the square who despite having his first shot saved reacted quickest to flick the rebound over the line to the net. This put Raheen 4 points up and they wrapped it up with the final 3 points without reply over the remaining 7 minutes scored by Paddy Rigney, Cein Gorman and Lee Mulpeter. Raheen finish as runners up in the group to Gracefield with both sides progressing to the Semi Finals where Raheen will most likely face Rhode with fixture details TBC.
