Cahir Park 2Clonmel Town 2Cahir Park welcomed Clonmel Town to The Park on Saturday where both sides fought out a two all draw.Cahir started the brighter, playing some very neat football and enjoying success down both flanks without converting any of their early chances.On 14 minutes Cathal Berrigan played a superb ball through, splitting the Town defence and David Clifford bravely slotted home before taking heavy contact from the advancing Town keeper.Cahir continued to enjoy much better possession but this possession was without purpose. Sean O'Connor dropped into the Town midfield and what a difference this made for the visitors.They began to enjoy possession much higher up the pitch. On 19 minutes a superb run by O'Connor was only bettered by his finish to the corner of the net. On 25 minutes Cahir failed to clear their lines resulting in a free kick being awarded 5 metres outside the penalty area. Up stepped O'Connor with a superb strike - two keepers would not have stopped it - and send the visitors 2 - 1 up. This gave Town great impetus and they pushed forward with determination outfighting their hosts. To their credit Cahir settled down and once again began to ask questions of the Town defence with the final ball alluding them. Town went in at half time a goal to the good.Cahir came out for the second half transformed. Their good possession was now being used to great effect. Time and time again the Town defence stood strong with some last gasp clearances.It looked like it was not going to be the Park's day. Then on 78 minutes, Rhys O'Regan played a ball behind the Town defence for Ayo Williams to run onto, beating two players and giving the keeper no chance to give Cahir Park a deserved equaliser. Cahir poured forward in search of the winner but somehow could not get the breakthrough. O'Regan shot over the bar with the Town Keeper on the ground. Then O'Conner - giving a man of the match performance - broke through from half way and in on goal only to be denied by an unbelievable save by Adam Gallagher when everyone expected to see the net bulge.In the final stages Cahir Park mustered one last effort when Rhys Byron rattled the crossbar from 20 yards only for the referee to blow the final whistle with the ball rebounding in the air.Both sidess could have one this one but that would have been particularly hard on the other.The game ended with the spoils shared between two teams, with very contrasting styles, giving absolutely everything.
