Portumna Tn 5 Clodiagh Rs 2.
Portumna got off to an unexpected start with a goal on the 7th minute when a Clodiagh defender under pressure just inside the box unfortunately misplaced a back pass into the net. A minute later a ball by Ciaran Hough through the middle found Darragh Barry who controlled it nicely and then finished to the net. Clodiagh pressed hard to get back in the match when awarded a penalty on 15 minutes which was struck well to find the Portumna net despite John O’Meara getting his right hand to it. Portumna had their fair share of possession and on 44 mins Darragh Barry provided a good pass to find Gary Hogan on the left who brought it around a defender and then looped it back across the goals just out of the reach of the keeper to nestle into the far side netting. In the second half Clodiagh got their second on 56 minutes when a free kick from the middle directly at the Portumna goals was finished off to the Portumna net. It looked like it was going to be a tight game from there with both teams pressing for a result but on 63 minutes Ronan O’Meara delivered a well measured ball from the middle for Rea McEntee to control well and finish. on 86 mins Ciaran Hough delivered another through ball from middle for the forward running Ronan O’Meara to be met on the edge of the box by the keeper but Ronan managed to loop the ball to fond the Clodiagh net. it ended 5-2. An Important win for Portumna to see them top of the table.
