Clare 1-7            Longford 0-8

CLARE had two points to spare over Longford at Cusack Park, Ennis yesterday.

The home-side enjoyed a 1-6 to 0-4 advantage at the break. 

Although they only managed one score in the second period, a long range David Tubridy pointed free, it still proved enough for their third 

win of this campaign. 

Longford for their part were far too reliant on corner-forward Sean McCormack for scores, while man of the match Gary Brennan supplied 

the game’s only goal with a fisted effort deep into injury-time in the opening half. 

Scorers for Clare: D Tubridy 0-6 (4f), G Brennan 1-1 (0-1f).
