Clodiagh Rangers 'A' were on their travels last weekend and visited TSDL Division Two outfit Kilmanahan United in this FAI Junior Cup second round tie. The visitors were looking to continue their good form of late and produced a clinical first half display, which saw the game over as a contest by the break.

Clodiagh Rangers dominated the early exchanges across the field and placed the home side under pressure with a number of successive corners and attempts on goal. The deadlock was broken after ten minutes when Barry O'Loughlin's deflected effort from distance found the top of the net.

Shortly afterwards, Mark Quinlan got in on the action with a well placed header after he got on the end of a pin point cross from Paul Doyle. Doyle made it three on the twenty-minute mark from the spot after a handball in the area. Clodiagh Rangers then killed the game off as a contest by adding four more goals before the break.

Doyle added two more to complete his hat trick and Quinlan continued his fine run of form by adding his second. However, the goal of the game came from left back O'Loughlin who unleashed an unstoppable effort from twenty-five yards in to the top corner of the goal to leave the Kilmanahan goalkeeper with no chance.

Clodiagh Rangers made a number of changes at half time and continued to press but found Graham Deegan in the Kilmanahan goal adamant he was not conceding any more goals and produced a number of fine saves.

Spurred on by their goalkeeper, the home side began to get a foothold in the game and were unlucky not to get on the score sheet after they hit the woodwork from distance. In the end, the visitors were made to work hard for the clean sheet and will look to continue this good run of form in their push for promotion from Division One.
