SFL Div 5: Clonmore 1-8 Fighting Cocks 2-14

November 8, 2018

The Juniors battled all the way but were beaten by the better team on the night.They gave as good as they got in the first half and only for a late goal there would have been nothing between the teams at half-time: 1-7 to 0-5.

With Larry Doyle outstanding at midfield and Ger Heidi revelling in his new role at corner frward, Clonmore took the game to the Cocks in the second hald but the superior size, speed and fielding ability of the Cocks team saw them pull away and a harsh penalty in the 50th minute put the icing on the cake for them. The penalty was given after what appeared to be a fair shoulder by Michael "Herbie" Strahan who was only seconds on the field. Herbie, who won a Minor C'ship with Clonmore in 1992, had come out of retirement to assist the Juniors who are struggling with numbers. To their credit, the lads still didn't lie down and Josh Bowes (point) and Larry Doyle (goal) soloed through for two great scores towards the end.

The Selectors would like to thank all the players for making sure we continue to field a second team which is giving some of our younger players valuable experience at adult level.
