Clonmel Óg (1-06) v Ballyporeen (1-13)
Despite a very plucky performance we were defeated in our first outing in this year's U/21 football championship. Fielding without a few regulars we found ourselves 5 points at the break but we got back to three half way through the second when Eric Smith scored a great goal. There was a very harsh penalty awarded against us which put our opponents 6 points to the good again and despite our best efforts we could not recover. We would like to congratulate Ballyporeen on their victory they played some good football and have some very talented players in their side.
We now face Mullinahone in the next round on Saturday next at 2pm in Kilsheelan and that is going to be a huge challenge as Mullinahone were magnificent in their first round victory.TEAM- Simon Ahearne, Paddy Power, Darragh Kearney, Adrian Shannon, Gavin Waters, Graham Quinn, Adam Stafford, Mathew Norris, Eric Smith, Michael Lynch, Stephen O'Reilly, Dean Kelleher, Cian Hogan ( captain), Mark Ahearne, Colin Aylward, Subs, Aaron Arrigan, James Blake, Neil Fox and Colm O' Connell.
