The Super 12's travelled north to Man O'War 3pts clear at the top of div 12 and requiring 3 wins from the remaining 4 games. With a number of regulars missing the C's lined out with just 2 subs and were in trouble early as little seemed to be going right. At half time Man O'War led 1-5,0-3 and they extended this to 8pts with another goal early in the 2nd half. Gaffer Willie O'Connor and Ronan Dodds came on as subs as Clontarf finally found the range. Vital goals by Craig Mc Connell and man of the match Aidan Conboy edged Clontarf into the lead. Brilliant defending and a super save from Colm Mc Cabe helped the Junior C's to their most impressive win of the season.
