We beat Donoughmore 2-1 away in a hard fough game this afternoon. There were no real chances early in the game except for some set pieces that created some half chances. We took the lead after 20 mins after an excellent move. Eamon O Keeffe started it with a nice ball down the line to Tadhg Collins. Collins cut in along the end line and squared it for the onrushing Chris Cleary to slot home. We pressed for the second but Donoughmore got back level after 35 mins with a penalty. Five mins before half time we took the lead again. Michael Murphy was fouled 25 yards from goal and Tim Kiely stepped up to fire the free kick to the top corner. We went down a man in the 50th min when Robert Smardz was sent off after what semmed like a minor clash. We defended stoutly for the remainder of the game though and even had the better chances to make the game safe. The chances were missed but we held on to record our 3rd league win in a row. Best for us on the day were Tadhg Collins, Michael Murphy and Chris Cleary.
