Clonmel Commercials and Ballyporeen enjoyed good wins in the opening round of the South Tipperary under 21 football championship ‘A’.

Commercials were much too strong for Ardfinnan, winning 4-17 to 0-4.

The town side were eighteen points clear at the break with Ardfinnan failing to score in the first thirty minutes and they extended their advantage in the second half.

Ballyporeen caused a surprise when they beat Moyle Rovers 4-5 to 2-7.

Goals proved crucial for Ballyporeen as they produced a performance that fancied Rovers couldn’t match.

Rovers face an even toughter task this week when they meet neighbours Commercials with Ballyporeen hoping to make it two from two when they face struggling Ardfinnan.
