SENIOR FOOTBALL CHAMPIONSHIP :
In a classic second  round game in the Cork Senior Football Championship,  Carbery Rangers outclassed  Castlehaven after Extra Time in dwindling light in Skibb on Saturday evening, and will now play St Finbarr's next Sunday in Bandon at 3pm.
The outcome of this game wasn't decided until deep into extra time when John Hayes who was outstanding all through ,pointed and Brian Shanahan sealed victory for Rangers 2-17 to 1-18.
Rangers had the wind in the first half and had 5 points on the board but the Haven responded to cut the deficit to a point before 2 killer goals in 60 seconds just before half time from Rob Hegarty and John Hayes,  gave Rangers a half time leaf of 2-07 to 0-06.
After the resumption,  Haven played with intent and had seven unanswered points to level matters 15 minutes in. The game was  as exciting as one could get with both sides exchanging points in the final ten minutes , before  points from John Hayes looked like it was to be Rangers day but a defensive mix up presented Castlehaven with a goal opportunity and they made no mistake to have the sides level at full time,  2-12 to 1-15.
In the first period of extra time,  Castlehaven took the lead for the first time in the game but Rangers responded well with 2 points from John Hayes and John O Rourke. In the second period of extra time both sides exchanged points before Haven got another to have the sides level with 3 minutes left. A red card was issued to one of the Castlehaven players shortly after and Rangers had the final say when Shanahan and Hayes scored to give Rangers a well earned and deserved win , 2-17 to 1-18.
