A remarkable win for the home side considering they played for an hour with only 10 men.

It was the visitors who started on the front foot aided by a strong wind. A corner kick from the right was headed home by Shane Carroll.

That goal sprung Clodiagh into life though and they shortly levelled matters. Clodiagh won a free kick just outside the box on the left side. David Considine stepped up and his shot found the right hand corner of the goal despite the keeper getting a hand to it.

Considine was fast becoming a menace for the visitors. He raced on to a through ball and slipped it passed the outrunning keeper on the left hand edge of the box. He then squared the ball to Shane McCormack who slotted home to put Clodiagh in front.

Despite the home teams dominance Clodiagh were dealt a double blow when Thomas Ryan was penalised for a handball on the line.

The referee brandished what was a second yellow for Ryan and awarded a spot kick to the visitors who duly equalised.

Clodiagh's spirit remained upbeat and they were ahead before the break when Shane McCormack's strike hit the cross bar and Patrick Lowry followed up with the rebound making it 3-2. An absorbing half was topped off when Patrick Lowry played in David Considine and his low strike to the keepers left made it 4-2 for the ten men at the break.

Clodiagh continued to press in the second half and were very composed on the ball with Patrick Lowry and Shane Kinane pulling the strings in the mid field. The fifth goal arrived when Lowry played in David Considine who gave the keeper no chance from 10 yards.

That was Considine's second hat trick in 2 games and he was not finished yet. A long clearance from keeper David Carey was misjudged by the Streamstown centre backs. Considine took up possession just outside box and he chipped the keeper for his fourth.

With 5 minutes to go Conor Ryan ran to the end line with the ball and his pin point cross from the right found Pa O' Dwyer at the far post who smashed the ball home to finish the game at 7-2.
