SFL Div 5: Clonmore 1-14 Ballon 2-10

November 8, 2018

Clonmore were on top early on but conceded a sloppy goal and went in 1-6 to 0-6 behind at half-time. The introduction of Darren McGrath at half-time changed things and three points from Darren, a haul of 5 points from John McGrath, two each from Collie McGrath and JP Doyle and a goal from Clive Lambe gave us a narrow but well deserved one point win.

Clonmore are now top of Division 5 with 10 points followed by The Fighting Cocks and Tullow both on 9 – the Cocks beat Tullow last night by 3-14 to 0-4.

TEAM: Jordan Kane, Mick Smith, Colin Doyle, Ger Doyle, Martin Byrne, Pauric Lawlor (0-1), Larry Doyle, Ronan Doyle, Alan Humphries, Daniel Quigley (0-1), Collie McGrath (0-2), Paul Byrne, JP Doyle (0-2), John McGrath (0-5), Clive Lambe (1-0). Subs: Darren McGrath (0-3) for Daniel Quigley, Richard Roche for Clive Lambe, Mark Byrne for Ger Doyle.
PHOTO: The introduction of Darren McGrath at half-time had a big bearing on the outcome of the Junior's win over Ballon. Welcome back Darren – hopefully you can stay injury free for the rest of the season.
