posted Sep 25, 2012, 4:26 AM by Saval Gac

It’s been a positive few weeks for Saval with the Seniors and Minors progressing in the Championship. The Seniors currently sit third from bottom in the league from which there is no relegation in the current season. This being the case Saval will judge their season by league Points accumulated. On Saturday 15th September the Seniors travelled to Hilltown in pursuit of 2 league points. However Clonduff were resilient as they looked a for a morale boosting win after their recent Championship defeat.

Saval took an early lead with points coming from Niall Madine and Rowan Turley, however three free kicks from Jason Brown gave Clonduff the lead. The game went up a gear when both teams scored their first goals of the game, with Eamon Magee scoring Sava’s goal. Late scores in the first half saw Clonduff leading 1-06 to 1-04 at the interval.

Within minutes of the restart it looked like Clonduff had control of the match scoring a goal and two points, putting them 2-08 to 1-04 ahead. However in typical fashion Saval fought back with Niall Madine finding the net, throwing the game wide open. Niall made another scoring effort but Clonduff keeper Gary Haughian pulled off a good save to deny a saval Comeback. A Series of late of points from the home side gave Clonduff their win.

Clonduff 2-11   Saval 2-08
