Senior Footballers lose out in Extra Time
Wolfe Tones secured their place in Round Three of the Clare SFC with a three point extra-time win over St Josephs Doora/Barefield.
In extra time the Parish held a one point lead at the break but they failed to score in the second period allowing the Shannon side to snatch victory.
St Josephs had sixteen wides in the game, some of them were poor but in other cases it’s refreshing to see players try to score given the fact that we went the first eleven minutes of the game without a single score. However it is their misses from placed balls, four in total that proved costly. Only two of their forwards got on the scoresheet which won’t win knockout championship games. Conor O’Brien, Declan Malone and David O’Brien did well but the Parish are in danger of becoming a dual Intermediate club.
St Josephs Doora/Barefield: Niall Duggan; Conor O’Brien, Kevin Dilleen, Kevin Meaney; Kevin Harrington, Declan Malone (0-01), Paudie Nugent; Leo Duggan, Mark Hallinan, Tom Hannon; Sean Flynn, Alan O’Neill, Greg Lyons; Christy O’Brien (0-06 6f), David O’Brien (0-02). Subs: Phillip Ryan for Lyons (HT). Cathal O’Sullivan (0-01) for Flynn (60), Luke Brannock for Hannon (60), Ger Fannin for Meaney (65) (BC), Stephen Collins for L Duggan (68), Enda Lyons for C O’Brien (78).
