Match Reports
Clann Seniors produced a great comeback to earn a draw with Western Gaels in Frenchpark on Saturday evening in the Championship. Trailing by four points with ten minutes left in he match, Clann had duly equalised with 3 minutes to go with three points from Donie Shine and the a great score from Jonathon Dunning. However Western Gaels retook the lead with a free only for Clann midfielder Gary Shine to kick a long range point deep in injury time. Clann had started well with points from David Kelly and Donie Shine before Western Gaels started to find their range to lead four points to two. Clann were playing well despite facing into the stiff breeze and soon lead again when a move started in defence with a brilliantly timed tackle by Ray Fallon and the ball was swept up the field where Enda Kenny set up Jonathon Dunning for a well placed goal. Western Gaels lead at half-time by 0-7 to 1-2 and started the second half as if they were going to pull away but Clann stayed with them before producing the dramatic finish. They now play St Faithleachs in Johnstown in two weeks for a place in the Quarter-Final.
