Sarsfields and Clans share the spoils

Sarsfields 2-10 Clan na Gael 1-13

Sarsfields and Clan na Gael couldn’t be separated in their Division 1B league meeting on Tuesday evening, drawing 2-10 to 1-13.

A late fisted point from Sam McClarnon earned Ronan McMahon’s team a share of the spoils.

Sarsfields got off to a brilliant start as Eamon McGeown palmed home a goal after just 45 seconds of play.

Clans got back on level terms through Brendan O’Hagan (2) and James Austin before Thomas McAlinden nudged the hosts ahead.

Lennox Camara tied things up before a quick fire 1-1 from O’Hagan gave Clan na Gael a four-point lead.

Sarsfields finished the half with a flurry. McGeown (2), McAlinden and Colin Stevenson all pointed to leave the score level at 1-5 apiece at the halfway stage.

McGeown and Niall Kerr swapped scores with O’Hagan while a Fintan Kelly goal shot Brendan Hughes’ men in front.

Matthew Lennon and Callum O’Neill pulled two back for Clans as McGeown fired over another point.

Malachi Ward exchanged pointed efforts with McAlinden while Camara and McGeown both scored from the dead ball.

McGeown’s effort, which brought his personal haul to 1-6, saw Sarsfield lead by two with only minutes remaining.
