Raheens never troubled in  replay

Raheens booked their IFC semi final spot on Thursday evening in Hawkfield, dismissing Ballyteague with ease in this replayed clash.

It was a game that Raheens dominated throughout against a Ballyteague side forced to line out without Jimmy Hyland (cruciate ligament), Michael Hanley, who pulled a hamstring in the warm-up and Gavin Smullen (out of bounds).

Raheens led 1-8 to 1-2 at the break, going on to win 3-13 1-3 with goals from Noel Byrne, David Malone and Colly Power.

The winners now join Round Towers, St Kevin's and Two Mile House in the semi final draw which takes place on Saturday afternoon, after the two SFC quarter finals at St Conleth's between Sarsfields and Athy (12.45) and Moorefield and Maynooth (2.30).
