Under 21 Football Championship

Clara played Durrow on Friday night last in the U21 football championship in Ballinamere. On what was a cold night, Durrow got the first point. David Fleming replied with a well taken goal and followed this up with a point. Durrow then got a goal of their own. They then got another goal which they followed up with a point and we trailed 2-02 to 1-01 midway through the half. Carl then got a point from distance which was cancelled out with one from Durrow. Carl then got another. There was no further score in the half and we went in 2-03 to 1-03 at half time.
Durrow got the opening score of the 2nd half and followed it up with another to leave us 5 points down after 5 mins of the half. D. Fleming then got our first of the half from a free after 12 mins and we trailed by 4. There was no further score for a few minutes before D. Fleming got another to narrow the gap to 3 with ten mins to go. Durrow widened this to 4 again which was again narrowed to 3 when Alan Gavin scored a point. The sides then swapped points and when David Fleming pointed in injury time there were two points in it. This was the last score of the half and Clara lost on a scoreline of 2-06 to 1-08.

The Clara team was: Wesley Johnson, Ciaran Doyle, Dermot Doolan, Gavin Carroll, Martin Fleming, Colm Doyle, Seamus O’Brien, David Falsey, Carl Stewart (0-02), Callum Stewart, Alan Gavin(0-01), Conor Egan, Josh Fleming, David Fleming (1-05) and Luke Dignam.
