Mixed Results Against Tulla Last Weekend
Broadford won the first outing against Tulla at the weekend but got off to a slow start in their Clare Cup match, away in Pairc an Dalaigh, on Saturday. Tulla had a 0-02 to 0-0 lead until 14 minutes in to the game, Broadford’s first point came from a 65 and a second from play followed a minute later. This was when the game really started for Broadford who had opened up a six-point lead by half-time 0-04 to 0-10 points.
Tulla started the second-half with a goal in the first minute of play and ended their scores with a second goal in the 30th minute. The 28 minutes in between however saw Broadford register 10 points from play and 2 from frees with Tulla managing one point from play and three from frees. The final point fell to Broadford just in to the start of two minutes of extra time. Final score 2-08 to 0-23.
Luck was not with the Camogie Intermediates, however, in their match on Sunday morning, played in O'Callaghan's Mills. Despite all efforts and a number of frustrating near-misses in and around the Tulla square, goals which could have helped to make the difference remained elusive. Final score Tulla 4-07 Broadford 1-04.

Broadford achieved a resounding win over Feakle on Easter Monday in the second round of the Clare Cup played at home in Glenmora Park.
Broadford took an early two-point lead thanks to a point from play from Donie Whelan and a free from Cathal Chaplin. From then on Feakle were unable to reverse their fortunes.
Further points were added to Broadford’s tally with just two in response from Feakle then Darren Chaplin scored the first of 4 goals for Broadford 11 minutes in to the game after Padraig Taylor won the ball mid-field and briefly ran with it to clear Feakle's attempts to obstruct his path before passing to Chaplin who charged towards the square before narrowly sending the ball over the goal line off the bottom of the left post.
After the game ebbed and flowed for the next 15 minutes with further points added for both sides, the second goal came from Donie Whelan in the 26th minute after Diarmuid Moloney chipped a sideline ball over the square from 20-metres out for Whelan to catch and methodically slam in to the back of the net. Whelan repeated again for in the 29th minute after receiving the ball, this time from Cathal Chaplin. First half score 3-11 to 0-09.
Feakle came back fired up in the second half taking the first point with just one in response from Broadford. Feakle then followed on with four successive points coming from play, a 65 and two frees but once Broadford picked up their pace again the win was assured and a goal from Shane Taylor in the dying minutes of the game sealed the final victory. 4-18 to 0-17.
The match saw a number of fine grab and dash sprints down and across the field from Stiofain McMahon who was closely marked throughout the match by Feakle's number 6, Con Smith, who kept equally close to McMahon's heals in flight. Padraig Hickey also made a fine showing as Broadford's substitute goalie on this occasion.
The Broadford Juniors met Clonlara at home in their opening Intermediate League Division 3 match on Easter Sunday. Broadford played well against a strong Clonlara team in an entertaining game of hurling.
Clonlara maintained a high work-rate to keep Broadford on the move with Jack O’Brien, Eoin Donnellan, Jack Kelleher and Matthew Troy covering every blade of grass at the Broadford end of the field and being regularly called on to drive play in the other direction. Points from play from Declan Teefy, Mark Moloney, Nial Moloney and points from play and frees from John Corcoran put Broadford four points ahead by 24 minutes (0-8 to 0-4) but a goal from Clonlara in the 25th minute closed the gap to just one point. Declan Teefy was unlucky not to score a goal from close range when the ball was deflected by the goalie to go wide with John Corcoran scoring from the resulting 65. The first half ended with Broadford ahead by one point 0-10 to
Declan Teefy scored the first point of the second half for Broadford but Clonlara responded with five points from frees, play and a 65 to go ahead by three points but also managed an equal number of wides. Both teams were unlucky not to score a goal each in the second-half with Broadford’s goalie Jack Dillion preventing what looked like an inevitable goal from fierce play in the mouth of the goal, twice deflecting the ball away from the net. The game ended with the final score 0-15 to 1-14 and a win for the visitors.
