Clodiagh Rangers B' played their last home game of the season on Sunday last in Drombane, with Nenagh AFC C' the visitors who currently occupy second in the league table.

Clodiagh Rangers played the better football for most of the game with a youthful Nenagh team showing only flashes of their capabilities.

However, it was Nenagh took the lead, somewhat against the run of play, when a counter attack resulted in an excellent 25-yard shot by Colm McKenna nestling into the top corner giving Pat Treacy no chance.

Clodiagh Rangers responded immediately when a free kick from Rory Ryan had too much power for the Nenagh goalkeeper to handle and the game was tied at 1-1 after 20 minutes.

Clodiagh Rangers were looking the more menacing and likely to score before half time and did shortly before the interval. John Casey gave a perfect low pass to Seamus Cullagh on the wing, who controlled and crossed to Joe Cullagh, who forced the ball past the defender and goalkeeper to give Clodiagh Rangers a 2-1 lead at half time.

In the second half Clodiagh, buoyed by their victory over Moneygall the previous weekend, were optimistic of holding out for the win. Unfortunately it was not to be, as for the second game in a row a needless handball in the area meant that referee Roche had no choice but to award the penalty.

Paddy McInerney duly converted for Nenagh and the sides were all square again. While Clodiagh Rangers had further chances to win the game but these were not taken, and with sufficient experience at the back were able to restrict Nenagh from any real chances to snatch the victory.

Clodiagh Rangers B' will feel that it should have been three points but had to settle for just one and now will travel to Latteragh Celtic for their last remaining league fixture next Sunday 2.30.
