Athy and Clane served up the game of the championship, this evening, in Group A, Round 2 of the SFC in Hawkfield..

In a game laced with top class football and packed with some brilliant point taking, Athy led at the break by two, 0-10 t 0-8 but Clane came storming back and looked to have it in the bag when leading 0-17 to 0-15 with 60 minutes on the clock.

However in a storming finish that saw some six minutes of time added played, the boys in red hit the final three points from Brian Maher, Niall Kelly and a magnificent free from James Eaton to clinch it in 66 minute.
