Clodiagh Rangers 'B' travelled to the Vocational School grounds in Nenagh on Saturday and recorded a deserved victory against a strong Nenagh Celtic C'.

Nenagh Celtic took the lead after ten minutes after their forward appeared to clear the offside trap and finish beyond James Coffey in the Clodiagh Rangers goal.

Brian Carroll had the ball in the Nenagh net shortly after, getting on the end of a freekick but the goal was disallowed for an infringement in the area.

Clodiagh were not to be denied however and equalised midway through the half with Diarmuid Grant and Andy Kinane combining to cross for Keith Ryan who headed home at the back post.

Nenagh Celtic sneaked back into the lead early in the second half with a close range finish after James Coffey had made a fine save to deny the initial strike.

Clodiagh were dominating proceedings however and should have equalised when awarded a penalty for handball, but Andy Kinane sent the resultant spot kick over the bar.

Kinane made amends for this error five minutes later with an individual effort, cutting in from the wing with purpose, he arrowed a low shot into the bottom corner leaving the keeper no chance.

With fifteen minutes to play, the visitors' hit the lead for the first time with LJ Ryan applying the finish after neat build-up play from Andy Kinane and Jack Ryan. Nenagh Celtic pushed hard for an equaliser, but the Drombane side hammered the final nail in the coffin with five minutes to play, when LJ Ryan cut a pass back from the end line for Andy Kinane to execute a chipped finish over the keeper to secure the victory.
