Munster MHC S-Final 2nd playoff – Tipperary 2-16 Cork 1-9

From www.tipperary.gaa.ie

Tipperary defeated Cork by 2-16 to 1-9  in the Munster Minor Hurling Championship Semi-Final 2nd playoff on Sunday at Semple Stadium Thurles.

Cork got off to a good start, leading 0-6 to 1-1 after 15 minutes with scores coming from Rob O’Shea, Killian McIntyre, Darren Sweetnam and Dillon Cahill. Cathal Horan scored an early goal for Tipperary and he added a further goal and two points from play before the interval to help put Tipperary in front by 2-5 to 0-8 at half-time. Tipperary had the wind in the second half and in spite of a Cork goal by Pa O’Callaghan in the 34th minute, Tipperary dominated and but for some good play by Cork goalie Gary Minihane, the gap between the teams could have been wider. Liam McGrath was Tipperary’s top scorer with 9 points from placed balls.

Tipperary lost to Cork (1936 Munster Final, 1937 Munster Semi-Final, 1938 Munster Semi-Final, 1940 First Round) and Limerick (1939 First Round).

Cork have the best record in the Munster Minor Hurling Championship since 2000, winning 24 and drawing 3 of their 36 matches played, two victories better than Tipperary’s record.

Limerick’s victory over Kerry in the first round of the 2010 Munster Minor Hurling Championship snapped a 7 game losing streak in the competition dating back to 2006.

The last 3 counties to win the Munster Minor Hurling Championship all lost their first round matches. 2010 champions Clare lost to Waterford by 1-21 to 0-16 before qualifying via the Losers Group and defeated Waterford by 1-16 to 0-11 in the Munster Final. 2009 champions Waterford lost to Clare in the first round by 1-12 to 0-14 before getting back on track with wins over Limerick, Clare and Tipperary to win the final. Cork lost in the 2008 first round to Clare by 2-17 to 2-16 before securing victories over Limerick, Waterford and Tipperary.

Clare are the defending Munster Minor Hurling Champions following a 1-16 to 1-11 victory over Waterford at Semple Stadium Thurles. David O’Halloran’s 38th minute goal proved the decisive score helping Clare to victory.

Kerry’s Minor Hurling captain is Kieran Fitzgibbon from the 2010 Kerry County Minor Hurling champions Kenmare. Aided by players from the Dr Crokes and Kilgarvan clubs, Kenmare’s victory means the Sean Lovett Memorial Cup resides in the South of the county for the first time since 1988.

Kerry’s last victory in the Munster Minor Hurling Championship came against Waterford in 1938, a 3-3 to 2-1 success in the semi-final. Cork defeated Kerry in the final.
