Division Four League: Shannonbridge 1-13; Raheen 3-6.
Shannonbridge opened their league campaign with a spirited one point win over Raheen, in Geashill, on Friday night. In a good start, with the aid of the breeze, Shannoridge led by five points at the end of the first quarter. A highlight was a forty metre point by Roger Ryan after good approach work by Willie Keena and Adrian Kelly. However the concession of two goals before the interval left the half time score at 0-10 to 2-2. Half way through the second half Shannonbridge suffered a double blow with Raheen’s third goal, giving them a two point lead and the loss of Mark Carty through injury. Shannonbridge hit back with a goal, by Anthony Kelly, after 20 minutes. In a tight final ten minutes, Donal Corbett hit the winner four minutes from time. Final score Shannonbridge 1-13, Raheen 3-6.
