Ratoath kept their 100% record intact as they defeated Clann Na Gael in this second round league game played in blustery conditions in Gillstown on Saturday.
Playing against the strong breeze in the first half the visitors nonetheless more than held their own against the Athboy side. It was pretty much score for score in the opening 15 minutes with the away side with their noses in front 0-5 to 0-4. After that Ratoath began to exert their superiority and with a succession of well taken points went into a 0-10 to 0-5 lead at half time.
With the win at their backs for the second half the men from South East Meath looked odd on favourites to win out and with a goal 3 minutes after the restart the game was as good as over. Clan Na Gael continued to battle and got 2 points of their own shortly after. After that Ratoath gradually pulled away from the home side to eventually run out 14 point winners.
