Allianz NFL Division 4 – Waterford 0-20 Clare 2-5

Waterford defeated Clare by 0-20 to 2-5 in Round 9 of the Allianz National Football League Division 4 on Sunday at Fraher Field Dungarvan.

Waterford rounded off a dream league campaign with a 0-20 to 2-5 defeat of fellow promotion chasers Clare in Dungarvan on Sunday. There was bitter disappointment for the Banner, who appeared to be on the cusp of promotion to the third tier until they lost to Limerick last week. However, Michael McDermott’s side once again failed to perform on the big day. Waterford will now play Limerick in the Division 4 final. Gary Hurney, the former dual star, was the star of the show for the Déise, scoring seven points (0-2f), while Liam O’Lonain was also in impressive form for the home side. Waterford led 0-11 to 1-3 at the break, with Gary Brennan netting for the Banner after 17 minutes. John Owens’ men completely dominated the second half before Clare saved face with a late, disputed penalty.
