Clodiagh 'B' travelled with a small squad to Obama country on Sunday to face a weakened Moneygall 'B' side in this Division Three league encounter.

Clodiagh got off to a dream start when inside a minute Joe Cullagh broke through the heart of the Moneygall defence and cooly slotted past the keeper.

The Drombane side doubled their advantage moments later when corner kick specialist, Rory Ryan, sent in an inch perfect delivery that was met by the head of Declan Carr for his third goal of the season.

Moneygall however were not going to just roll over on their home turf and stung Clodiagh Rangers on the counter attack for a goal of their own. Brian Delaney set of from his wing position at blistering pace and powered an unstoppable drive past James Coffey in the Clodiagh Rangers goal.

Mark Conway restored the two goal cushion for Clodiagh Rangers inside the half hour when he rounded the keeper to open his account for the day and the visitors never looked back after this.

Darragh Spooner effectively killed off the game before half time with a spectacular diving header following an inviting cross from Joe Cullagh. Both Cullagh and Conway got on the score sheet, the latter profiting off a rebound from a Jack Spillane distance effort.

The win lifts Clodiagh Rangers 'B' to fourth in the table, level on points with third place Noreside Celtic on ten points.

Both Clodiagh Rangers Junior teams will be without fixtures this weekend as it is Upperchurch-Drombane Fighting Blindness Charity Weekend. There will be various events, open to all for participation on Saturday and Sunday, including hill-walking, tug of war, sponsored cycle and walk, and of course the eagerly awaited ladies and mens veterans football matches on Saturday afternoon. There will also be live music in three venues on Saturday night.
James Coffey; Keith Ryan, Declan Carr, John Ryan, Rory Ryan; Jack Spillane, Stephen Gleeson, Daragh Spooner, Vincent Ryan; Mark Conway, Joe Cullagh.
