Barden stars in Clonguish hurling success
October 02, 2006
Longford football star Paul Barden produced a man of the match performance as Clonguish retained their Longford SHC crown with a comfortable victory over Longford Slashers at Pearse Park.
Barden scored 1-3 from wing forward and his goal just before half-time helped the Newtownforbes side to a 2-7 to 1-3 interval lead. Enda Corcoran scored the winners' first goal in the 23rd minute and he struck again early in the second half to extend Clonguish's advantage to 3-10 to 1-3.
But with county star Gareth Ghee a constant threat, Slashers never gave up and added three more goals to their tally before the finish. However, Clonguish's grip on the JJ Duignan Cup was never under serious threat.
