CLOGHER Valley suffered a heatbreaking last minute defeat at Mullaghmeen on Saturday as a Ryan Cathcart inspired Enniskillen snatched victory from the jaws of defeat.
Having led 15-0 after just 15 minutes of the local derby, Valley coach Stephen Bothwell was justifiably disappointed by the end result, but he hopes his side can regroup and respond in style at home against Ballyclare tomorrow (Saturday).
“The frustrating thing is we were 15-0 up and we really should go on and win the game from there,” he observed.
“We turned around 18-12 and we held onto that for a good while until they scored and went a point ahead from a penalty scrum. Then we kicked a penalty to go two points ahead, but then they scored again to win it.
“It went from delight to horror show but we owe Ballyclare one and the aim is to get a consistent performance.”
Consistency has been lacking for the Valley this term. Yes, they sit comfortably in fourth place after a promising season, but their tendency to allow teams back into games has cost them on more than one occasion.
