Club results from weekend of 2-3 February   04/02/2019

The junior men’s side (pictured) drew 2-2 away to Renmore B last Saturday afternoon with the point gained moving them level with NUIG at the top of Division Three. Renmore were in front after only five minutes but United missed the opportunity to score before the break when the home keeper saved well from a Patrick Phillip’s penalty. However, in a hectic ten minute period after the restart, Craughwell  levelled when Jack Lally set up Chris Phillips to score before Renmore went in front again almost immediately. Darragh Minogue wasn’t long setting up Phillips for his second to level the match at 2-2 and while both sides went close in the final quarter there was to be no separating the sides on the day. Best for Craughwell were keeper Kyle Heverin who made some outstanding saves in the second half and midfielder Jack Lally who attacked and defended with equal prowess.
