Clodiagh Rangers 'B' promotion push stuttered in Drombane last Sunday morning with defeat at home to league leaders Holycross B'.

The visitors raced into an early two-goal lead with a Conor Ryan free kick and a well-taken goal from JoJo O'Meara.

Clodiagh rallied and forced their way back into the game with a goal of their own from James Horan, but a defensive lapse on the stroke of halftime was cruelly punished by the in-form O'Meara who restored Holycross' two goal lead going into the break.

With a strong wind advantage in the second half, Clodiagh laid siege to the visitors' goal, and reduced the arrears to the minimum with a fine strike by Paul Ryan.

With nothing to lose, the Drombane side threw caution to the wind in search of an equaliser, leaving large gaps in defence and were duly punished by Holycross in injury time with O'Meara completing his hatrick.
