Rosegreen Rangers 1 – 4 Clonmel Town
There was only one game in the Second Division last weekend, but in it, league leaders Clonmel Town travelled to Nijinsky Park in Rosegreen and solidified their grip on the Division as they march relentlessly to promotion.

The early portion of the game was even enough but the visitors opened the scoring in the 22nd minute when a poor clearance was pounced upon by David Morrissey and he fired home from the edge of the area.
Town doubled their lead 10 minutes before the break when another poor ball out defence was knocked back into the box and Morrissey was hand again to scramble the ball home. That was how the game went to the break.
Rangers pulled a goal back early in the second period when Jack Marshall fired home from 20 yards out to get his side back into the game.
