Clodiagh's recent winning ways continue thanks to another strong performance which sees them secure another vital three premier league points.

Travelling to Latteragh always proves to be a tricky assignment and it was even more so the case on this occasion with the home side electing to play on a newly conditioned narrow field.

However, not being deterred the away side flew out of the traps and were immediately causing concern for the home rear guard. This early pressure was converted by Joe Cullagh who having being played in on goal calmly slotted the ball past the advancing keeper.

Within 5 minutes it was soon 2 nil when Paul Doyle struck home from close range after some excellent build up play which involved Paul Ryan, John Ryan and Shane O'Dwyer.

However, Sallypark in a quick counter attack managed to grab a goal against the run of play with a well placed effort which gave Adrian Cooke no chance in the visiting goal.

On the stroke of half time, Clodiagh were awarded a penalty for a handball infringement, and up stood Paul Doyle to convert in some style as he found the roof of the net.

In the second half it was more of the same pressure from Clodiagh who had the midfield pairing of Paul Ryan and John Ryan in fine form as they controlled the game throughout with some probing runs and clever passing.

Paul Doyle grabbed his hat trick on the day when he danced in from the left hand side of the pitch and by passed a number of tackles before slotting the ball home in to the far corner for an excellent individual goal.

The icing on the cake came when Shane O'Dwyer saw his well placed free kick excellently saved, but the rebounding ball was cleverly anticipated by James Murray who headed home to cap a fine team performance.
