Junior Footballers beaten in Clonmore

November 8, 2018

Edenderry juniors suffered their second league defeat of 2012 with a five point loss to Clonmore Harps on Saturday afternoon. Despite holding a four point lead at half time, a blistering opening twelve minutes in the second half by Clonmore which yielded 1-6, meant they took the two points on offer.

Edenderry started the stronger and with just forty seconds on the clock John Gorman pointed after some good play from Glen Dolan and Pat Moloney. The ‘Gooch’ added his second in the seventh minute from a free after a foul on Pat Moloney.

In the tenth minute it was John Gorman again who proved to be a thorn in Clonmore’s side when he toe-poked a ball to the back of the net after been sent clear on goal by Paddy Lynch and Glen Dolan. Clonmore responded with their opening score in the seventeenth minute from a ’45. Five minutes later they added their second but it was quickly cancelled out with the last score of the first half by Adrian Forde to leave four points between the sides.
