Premier Division

Cloughjordan Fc 3-4 BT Harps

BT Harps remain at the summit of NT&DL football after a spectacular 4-3 win away in Cloughjordan. Harps raced into an early two goal lead after Johnny Coleman (pen) and Jamie Nolan both found the net. Shane Williams popped up with a vital goal for the hosts right before halftime and Dean O’Meara levelled affairs at the start of the second half with a thunderbolt. Clough completed the comeback mid way through the half as Skip Cleary headed home but Harps never say die attitude came out in droves as Stephen Nolan netted the equaliser before and outstanding Tommy Brophy bicycle kick looped over the Clough keeper to keep Harps’ 100% record alive.

Thurles Town 2-0 Ballymackey Fc

Thurles kept their unbeaten run going today but they were made work hard for it as Ballymackey proved very hard to break down. Town eventually got the breakthrough goal as Barry Ryan once again popped up to deliver the goods. Roscrea native Martin Harty doubled his sides lead with ten minutes remaining as the current champions sit right behind the league leaders BT Harps.

Nenagh Celtic 2-1 Killavilla Utd
