TSDL Premier League: Clonmel Town 3-2 Peake Villa
David McGrath’s late late winner in The Complex ensured Town went seven points clear in the TSDL Premier on Sunday morning. Town of late have developed a never say die attitude winning their last four game in the final five minutes and today was no different. After a tame first half with chances very few Town began to get on top. Tony Scully saw a brilliant shot smash of the cross bar in the opening minutes of the second half. Town finally broke the deadlock in the 56th minute as Scully’s inch perfect free kick was headed home by McGrath for the first of his double. Peake to their credit struck back almost instantly as Ronan McGuire finished at the back post. This gave Peake the initiative and on 71 minutes Pippy Carroll finished a goalmouth scramble to put the visitors in front. But yet again Town finished strongly and in the 77th minute Scully rose majestically following Keith Cashman’s perfect cross to power home a header to mount the comeback. Town pushed on and deservingly got their reward in the 89th minute as Aidan McGrath slipped in brother David behind the back four as he slid the ball past the onrushing keeper to give Town all three points. This leaves Town seven points clear with just one game left against St Michaels.
