Raheen Senior Footballers now have it all to do to have any hope of progressing to the knockout stage of the Senior B
Championship after losing to Bracknagh in the penultimate round last Friday evening in Gracefield on a scoreline of 0-
10 to 0-05. This was a game of few chances and it was Bracknagh who were more economical with those that came their
way. Bracknagh opened the scoring on 9 mins with the first of 3 points before Raheen got up and running with 2 points
from Mark Gorman either side of the mid point of the half. A 5 point haul in the final 10 mins of the half gave
Bracknagh an 0-08 to 0-02 lead at the break. The first 15 mins of the second half was scoreless before Raheen added
3 points in a row to bring it back to a potential single score game but this would be as good as it would get as Bracknagh
added 2 points in the final 10 mins to wrap it up.

RAHEEN: James Boland, Brian Corcoran, Liam Boland, Chris Floody, Brian Crombie, James Lalor, Jack Keogh, Declan
Byrne, Mark Gorman (0-02), Kaelyn Thompson, Conor Carroll (0-02), Adam Kelly, Tommy Spollen (0-01), Richie Reynolds,
Conor McNally.

SUBS: Colin Keogh (for Jack Keogh), Mikey Keogh (for Mark Gorman), Padraig Bracken (for Kaelyn Thompson).
