Clann Na nGael Pull Off Incredible Comeback In Roscommon Championship

Clann Na nGael Pull Off Incredible Comeback In Roscommon Championship

Clann na nGael and St Brigid's drew in Group A of the Roscommon Senior Football Championship on Saturday.

After just a quarter of the game gone, Brigid's had notched 1-8 without their opponents even bothering the scoreboard. Any kind of positive result for Clann na nGael looked to be out of reach.

However, by half-time, Clann na nGael has resurrected their chances, hitting 0-5 without reply to trail by six.

That deficit was slowly cut further in the second half but when Brigid's hit three late points to lead by four in injury time, they looked to have regained control.

That was until the 64th minute when a long ball from midfield found Jamie Fahy who laid it off to Ciaran Lennon and the forward calmly side-footed the ball to the net.

Cathal Shine then joined Lennon in the heroics. With virtually the final kick of the game, Shine stepped up to kick a monster equalising point.

The game finished 1-14 each.
