Both Raheen teams qualified for the next rounds of their respective cups in contrasting style. The A team had Nigel Higgins to thank for their success with two goals in the first half. The second a brilliant finish to the roof of the net. With Rathnure posing little threat after the break, the home team ran out comfortable winners.
The second match of the day was a thriller with the B team going through on a 5-4 scoreline. Willie Gillard opened the scoring half way through the first period with a great turn and shot. Nicky Doyle scored direct from a corner early in the second half before Moyne pulled one back. Mervyn Moloney scored with a bullet shot before Moyne again found the net. When substitute John Whitty netted a fourth with ten minutes remaining it looked all over but Moyne never gave up and scored two quick goals to make it 4-4 going into injury time. Unbelievably Willie Gillard scored a brilliant goal from the edge of the box with the last kick of the game. A brilliant goal to finish a brilliant game.
