CLONMEL OIL SOUTH TIPPERARY SENIOR FOOTBALL CHAMPIONSHIP FINAL

CLONMEL COMMERCIALS 0-15
MOYLE ROVERS 1-10

Clonmel Commercials finished strongly to capture the Clonmel Oil South Tipperary Senior Football Championship by a two- point margin over old foes Moyle Rover at the Duneske Sports Centre in Cahir.
Late points from man of the match Michael Quinlivan and Tadgh Condon sealed the victory after Moyle Rovers had battled gamely throughout.

Experience was key to the Commercials victory, as they remained composed in the latter stages to score the games last three points.

Encouraged by Liam Boland’s penalty in the 13th minute, Moyle Rovers had taked a two-point lead into the half-time interval but Commercials went through the gears after the restart and notched two quick points in the opening minutes throug Kevin Fahey and Jamie Peters to bring the sides level.

However it wasn’t all one-way traffic and Rovers might have raised a second green flagwhenRiainQuigleycleverlysetupDara Ryan and although he secured a point, it may have been three had he managed to keep his shot on target.

Michael Quinlivan showed his class when he kicked a superb point from a tight angle before Sean O’Connor edged Commercials ahead from a dead ball.

Not to be outdone, Jason Lonergan pointed to leave the minimum between the sides and they were soon level when a fine move was finished with ease by Seamus Kennedy.

Liam Boland, who was excellent throughout, respnded with a glorious point from long range but that was to be it for Rovers.
