Clans romped past their town rivals Na Piarsaigh on an awful night for football last Friday night by a score of 3-5 to 0-6.

A tame first half saw Na Piarsaigh ease into a 0-3 to 0-1 lead with the aid of the strong breeze.

However the secodn half saw the Castletown men assume total control and two 45’s were the cause of Na Piarsaigh’s downfall. First Robbie Curran fired his 45’ straight into the top corner of the Na Piarsaigh net. Then a second 45’ from Curran was fisted into the goal by Billy Smith.

That ultimately put paid to any chance Na Piarsaigh had of a home victory.
