Crawley Cup Q/F V Clontibret

Friday evening June 17th and Emyvale meets Clontibret in the quarter-final of the Crawley Cup in Tully. This Emyvale team has done well in the League but so also has Clontibret and they would have gone into this game as slight favourites. For the first 20 minutes it was a very close game with good play from both sides and great determination being shown by all.Then a dubious penalty was awarded to Clontibret, which they converted and the quality of the game went down hill from there. Further decisions helped to get spirits raised and a number of yellow cards were necessary. It was now a dogged tough game with Clontibret coming out the better on the scoreboard and they went nine points ahead. Even though the home side brought that back to within four points they were unable to bridge the gap and in the end Clontibret forged ahead again and had nine to spare at the end with a score of 0 - 14 to 4 - 11. A good game spoiled but some very good performances for Emyvale on the night and lots to build on for the future.
