Town reach open draw in FAI after victory over Two-Mile Borris
Clonmel Town 2
Two Mile Borris 0
Clonmel Town welcomed Two-Mile Borris to the Complex for an eagerly awaited FAI clash after the league encounter between the two was decided by the narrowest of margins just two weeks ago.
In typical cup fashion this game followed the same pattern as both sides enjoyed periods of dominance without creating any clear-cut chances.
On the stroke of half time the first big chance of the game fell to Rhys O’Regan after some clever footwork saw him bearing down on goal with only the keeper to beat but he lashed wildly and the ball flew over the crossbar to the away sides relief.
The second period began in similar vane with both sides working hard but with chances at a premium until some great play from the impressive Jamie Lee released Martin Darmody who in turn set Micheal Foley through on goal only for Evan Comerford to come to Towns rescue as he managed to smother Foleys effort.
In truth this was a gilt edged chance for the away side and nobody could have argued had they taken the lead. However it seemed to awaken the home side and the introduction of Craig Guiry turned the game on its head as his brilliant cross found Evan Mcguire who volleyed home brilliantly to continue his goalscoring run.
Before the away side could regroup the excellent Adrian Cleere headed home a second to kill the contest. Town look forward to the draw for the next round and will be keen to get some absent players back into the fold.
