Battling Intermediates defeated by Cill Na Martra

On Sunday last the Intermediate team were in action again in the winners round against a fancied Cill Na Martra side in Castletownkenneigh. Clon fielded a nice blend of youth and experience. The opening half was a relatively evenly contested affair with both forward lines looking dangerous with ball in hand. It was Cill Na Martra who led at half time 0-08 to 0-05 with Clon by no means out of the game.

The real winning of the game was in the opening period of the second half as Cill Na Martra dominated around the middle and kicked five successive points to lead by eight points. It would have been easy for Clon to give in but to their credit they dug in and outscored their opponents for the remainder of the game. A late Eoin Deasy goal narrowed the deficit to four points before time ran out. The game saw an impressive return of five points from Liam Cahill from play.
