However, the Broadford boys squared up to the challenge and fought hard for every puck, every step and for every point.
The boys were down eight points after 16 minutes but clawed their way back to finish the second half with a five point defect. 2-04 to 0-05.
Digging deep and using every lad on the field, the boys turned the game around to a one point lead 13 minutes in to the second half which led to a thrilling last few minutes.
Clonlara evened the score though and then went on to gain the winning score just seconds before the full-time whistle. Final score Clonlara 2-07 Broadford 1-09.
Whilst the disappointment for the Broadford team and their supporters was palpable, the entire team can be proud of their performance in coming so, so close to beating the odds.
Congratulations though to Clonlara on their win and we wish them well representing Clare in June.
