SFL Div 5: MLR 4-9 Clonmore 1-6.

November 8, 2018

15 Clonmore Juniors made the long journey to Borris to fulfill this fixture, but they did much more than that. John Connolly came out of retirement to have a stormer at corner back aand Tommy Kelly donned his boots again at the ripe young age of 62. Clonmore took the game to Rangers from the start and raced into a 1-3 to 0-1 lead on 15 minutes, all scored by the lively Niall Humphries. MLR raised their game in the second quarter to go in leading by 2-4 to 1-4, Clonmore's 4th point was a cracker by Michael "Chang" McGrath. We were well in the game up to 52mins when score stood at 2-6 to 1-6 but the younger legs of the home side and the fact that they sent in four subs swa them pull away at the end
