A J Reynolds point together with a point by Tullamore left it 0-3 to 0-2 mid way through the half. Two Tullamore points and points by G Guilfoyle and T Deehan left the score 0-5 to 0-4 going into the last five minutes of the half. Tullamore then equalised before T Deehan scored two frees to leave Clara 0-7 to 0-5 ahead at half time.

Tullamore got the opening three scores of the second half to take the lead at 0-8 to 0-7. Points by M Mitchell and 3 points by T Deehan put Clara 0-11 to 0-8 in front. Tullamore got the next 2 points to narrow the gap to the minimum. J Reynolds got the next score to put Clara 2 points clear again going into the last couple of minutes. Going into injury time Tullamore narrowed the gap to one point before Clara closed out the game with points by G Guilfoyle and T Deehan for a 0-14 to 0-11 win.

Minor Football Championship

We Bowed out of the minor football championship when we were beaten by Ferbane on a scoreline of 0-9 to 0-5 at the quarter final stage played on an excellently prepared Ballycumber pitch last Saturday. We looked good at half time when having played very well we were only a point behind on a scoreline of 0-5 to 0-4. But we only managed one point in the second hald, and this isn’t good enough. The club would like to thank manager Padraig Moran and his selectors Garret Buckley, Derek Coyne, Noel Kelly, Aidan Stewart and Peter John Meehan
