Clontarf – Lansdowne – Mud Sweat and Mudmen

The weather has been poor to say the least and the main pitch in castle avenue has been in  a bad state.

Both team were intent on playing but Clontarf during the first half confiscated the ball and pushed Lansdowne defence into making faults. Lansdowne towards the end of the half managed to get a bit of possession and scored a penalty from rather far out.

Half time score 9 -3

The second half saw Lansdowne followed up on the late first half form  for a while before Clontarf took the control back. A penalty was all the rewards the hosts could get; before a late  fightback from Lansdowne saw their hopes of a losing bonus point dashed as the kick strayed.

Final score 12 -3

Clontarf – Trinity … The boys are back in town

A highly anticipated return to castle avenue for Clontarf as they had the week before stopped their losing streak in Lakeland beating Terenure.

The game started with Trinity holding on to the ball well but lacking the necessary cutting edge to make inroads in the hosts defence.

Clontarf seemed to lack accuracy at first but presented with their first opportunity they pounced and Grabbed the lead never to let go of Trinity. To their credit Trinity never let go and tried till the end.
