Raharney gained revenge for last year’s surprise result against Castlepollard when they defeated them by eleven points in this Westmeath Senior Hurling A Championship game played in TEG Cusack Park, Mullingar, last Saturday evening.
When the sides met last year, Pollard snatched a surprise draw with 14 men, to send Raharney crashing out of the championship. However, most observers will agree that the Deelsiders have still got a long way to go to return to the force they were a couple of years ago.
Castlepollard got off to a dream start with an early goal, but a 13th minute goal by Cormac Boyle and another goal just before half time from Eoin Keyes saw Raharney go in leading at the break by 2-9 to 1-10.
