A strong second half comeback saw Kildysart defeat Corofin last night in the first match of this year’s Clare Intermediate Football Championship.
The North Claremen led by three points at the break, 0-7 to 0-4, and they were able to hold onto that lead in the early stages of the second half.
Kildysart drew level midway through the second period, however, and pulled away to earn themselves a three point lead.
And while Corofin nailed the last two scores, they couldn’t draw level, and Kildysart won on a 0-13 to 0-12 scoreline.
The Intermediate Championship continues with four more matches today.
The first, at 3pm, sees Liscannor take on Shannon Gaels in Cooraclare.
Later, at the same venue, Naomh Eoin play St. Joseph’s Doora-Barefield. That’s at 6pm.
Then at 7pm, Kilfenora play Éire Óg in Corofin while at the same time in Doonbeg, O’Curry’s meet Coolmeen.
The action concludes tomorrow at 12 noon when Wolfe Tones play Michael Cusack’s.
