Glengoole United 1 – 2 Clonmel Town
Clonmel Town continued their perfect start to the campaign, but were made to work for all three points against newly promoted Glengoole United.
Second half strikes from Emmet Johnson and Tony Scully proved decisive, but the pointless home outfit proved capable of causing the league leaders toruble.
The top versus bottom clash was a tight from start to finish and Town’s abilty to take the few chances that fell their way proved the difference.
The best chance of the first half fell to Glengoole 36 minutes in when Daniel Rafter pushed the ball wide of the post from eighteen yards.
The second half proved to be as closed as the first, until the 64 minute when Emmet Johnson broke the deadlock. The Town player headed home from eight yards to give his side the lead.
Clonmel doubled their lead just eight minutes later when Tony Scully scored with a sweetly struck effort from 10 yards.
Within five minutes the home team pulled a goal back thanks to a brilliant 25 yard Killian Duggan free kick.
Glengoole pushed for an equaliser,but they couldn’t breach Clonmel’s defence.
Glengoole will be confident of breaking their duct next time out as they face fellow struggler’s Cashel.
