“Tipperary Water” County Hurling League Division 2 Group 1
Loughmore-Castleiney 0-18 Moycarkey-Borris 1-13

Loughmore-Castleiney prevailed in a closely contested County Hurling League round 2 game played at a sunny but windy Littleton on Sunday last. Loughmore had the aid of the strong wind in the first half but it was Moycarkey who made the better start thanks to a Pat Ralph pointed free followed by a Kieran Morris goal within the opening two minutes. Loughmore eventually settled in to the game and thanks mainly to the accurate free-taking of Evan Sweeney, scored seven unanswered points over the next 15 minutes with Sweeney accounting for four of these scores, 3 from frees and 1 from a 65.

Pat Ralph responded with a pointed free in the 19th minute only to see Loughmore add on another 3 points, each from Sweeney frees to open up a 0-10 to 1-2 lead heading in to the closing stages of the first half. Moycarkey’s play improved in those final minutes and points from Pat Ralph (2 frees) and Pat Carey left just two points between the teams. Evan Sweeney added his eighth point from a placed ball just before the interval to leave the half-time score Loughmore-Castleiney 0-11 Moycarkey-Borris 1-5.

Moycarkey played well to open the second half and added points from Pat Ralph (2), Rory Ryan and James Bourke with the sole Loughmore response coming courtesy of an Even Sweeney free and the sides were level after 36 minutes of play. A ten-minute scoreless period was broken when a Pat Ralph free put Moycarkey in front heading in to the final quarter, 1-10 to 0-12. Instead of Moycarkey pushing home their advantage with wind assistance, it was Loughmore who hit a purple patch, hitting five unanswered points in the next 10 minutes with Evan Sweeney (3), Anthony Ryan and Cian Hennessy adding the crucial scores to put Loughmore in control. Rory Ryan, Pat Ralph (free) and Kieran Morris scored late points for Moycarkey but Loughmore kept in front thanks to points from Evan Sweeney and Thomas McGrath to run out winners in the end by two points, 0-18 to 1-13.

Moycarkey Borris team – Bill McCormack; Kieran Cummins, James Power (C), Michael Cussen; Daniel Kirby, Pat Molloy, Kevin Moran; James Bourke (0-1), Mossy Bracken; Rory Ryan (0-2), David Morris, Kieran Morris (1-1); Pat Ralph (0-8 frees), Pat Carey (0-1), Conor Hayes
Subs used – Tom Hayes for Pat Carey (46m), Chris McCullagh for Mossy Bracken (46m), Paul Dempsey for Micheal Cussen (52m)

2016 Cahill Cup Final
Although the final was carried over from last year that did not matter on the field of play on Sunday last. This game had everything a final should have and supporters were not disappointed.

The scoring started in the first minute with a point for Tommy Maher, Loughmore Castleiney. Points were traded in the third minute and Moycarkey Borris hit a purple patch with four points from Pat Ralph, Kieran Morris (2), Pat Molloy before Cian Hennessy pointed for Loughmore. In the following five minutes frees were crucial to the scoring and Moycarkey’s, Pat Ralph registered two to Loughmore’s single free by John McGrath. Entering the next quarter Moycarkey had a three point margin but this always looked unstable and a point from Tomás McGrath in the sixteenth reduced it. Moycarkey had the next two points in the eighteenth minute from James Bourke and Conor Hayes. Loughmore’s McGrath brothers, Noel and John concluded their scoring with two further points. But the last score in injury time set Moycarkey up with a good half time advantage, a goal from Tom Hayes. Moycarkey Borris 1-9 Loughmore Castleiney 0-7.

Moycarkey Borris opened the scoring in the second half with a Pat Ralph free and Loughmore replied with a free of their own in the thirty eighth minute. Tensions had risen in the game and Loughmore’s next two scores were from John McGrath frees. As the final fifteen minutes commenced it was the goal which separated the teams. A pointed 65 from Pat Ralph gave Moycarkey a further cushion but as the game entered the final ten minutes Moycarkey’s David Morris was substituted as he was injured. In the fifty third minute John McGrath nullified Pat Ralph’s 65 with a free. Moycarkey had a further blow when Michael Cussen was substituted with an injury. Points were traded soon after before Kevin Jordan blew for full time, Moycarkey Borris 1-12 Loughmore Castleiney 0-12.

Afterwards, Mid Board Chairman Joe Kennedy presented the cup to Moycarkey-Borris captain James Power and congratulated all involved on a great game of hurling.

Under 21
Moycarkey Borris commenced their Horse & Jockey Kia Mid Tipperary Under 21 B Championship in Drombane against their hosts on St. Patrick’s Day. Conditions were very poor with a heavy ground and a thick mist blowing at an angle across the field.

Points were traded in the first five minutes before Jack Butler netted the ball for Upperchurch in the sixth minute. Loughlin Ryan registered another point from a free before Moycarkey’s Chris McCullagh pointed. The next two points were for Upperchurch from Loughlin Ryan and Jack Butler respectively before Moycarkey’s Anthony McKelvey scored a point from a ’65 in the 16th minute, Upperchurch Drombane 1-4 Moycarkey Borris 0-3. In the next fifteen minutes, scores were at a premium as both teams battled hard to keep the ball from their opponent’s forwards. Moycarkey managed two pointed frees by Anthony McKelvey while Gavin Ryan looked after Upperchurch’s single point to leave the half time score Upperchurch Drombane 1-5 Moycarkey Borris 0-5.

Moycarkey had not used the breeze to its best advantage in the first half and had it all to do in the second half but Upperchurch’s Patrick Burke was the first to the scoreboard with a point. Points were traded around the thirty fourth minute and again the ball ebbed and flowed for the next twelve minutes before Anthony McKelvey pointed a free for Moycarkey leaving the goal the margin again. As the game entered the final ten minutes Upperchurch’s Loughlin Ryan added two further points and Moycarkey turned its concentration to scoring a goal. In the fifty seventh minute Anthony McKelvey had his free deflected over the bar by Upperchurch to register a point. Two minutes later, McKelvey was rewarded with a green flag to reduce the deficit to a solitary point. In the closing stages, Patrick Burke raised a green flag for Upperchurch and this brought the game to a close, Upperchurch Drombane 2-9 Moycarkey Borris 1-8.

Moycarkey-Borris Team – Rhys Shelly; Pat Whelan, Kieran Cummins, Kieran Kearney; Eoghan Hayes, Tom Hayes, Mikie Bergin; Chris McCullagh (0-1), Eric Fanning; Rory Darmody, Niall Heffernan, Joe Doran; Anthony McKelvey (1-7; 6 frees, 1 65), Tomas Darmody, Kevin O’Regan.

“Tipperary Water” County Hurling League Division 2 Group 1
The “Tipperary Water” County Hurling League commenced for Moycarkey Borris when they travelled to Templederry to play their hosts, Templederry Kenyons on Sunday last. A strong breeze blew down the field and this aided to make the contest a game of two very different halves.

The sides traded two points each in the first five minutes of the game and in the eighth minute Moycarkey Borris’s Niall Heffernan found the back of the net to put Moycarkey ahead. Three more quick points from Pat Ralph (free), Anthony McKelvey and Rory Ryan meant Moycarkey had a six point cushion before Templederry’s next point of the game, a free from Dillion Carey as the quarter concluded. In the following minute Templederry regained some ground with another pointed free from Dillion Carey and a point from Matthew Hogan. But Pat Carey retained the six point margin when he raised the green flag on the seventeenth minute. There was a further hat trick of points from Niall Heffernan, Anthony McKelvey and Pat Ralph (free) before Gearoid Ryan found the net for Templederry from a penalty. Pat Ralph replied with a point free but a direct ball from Anthony McKelvey cleared past the keeper for a goal for Moycarkey. The final score of the half was Templederry’s Dillion Carey who pointed another free for them leaving the score at half time, Moycarkey Borris 3-9 Templederry Kenyons 1-6.

The breeze that was in the first half was now in Templederry’s favour. Three quick points in the opening three minutes for Templederry meant the margin of six points had returned. In the next five minutes Pat Ralph traded two pointed frees with two points from Templederry. Templederry continued their scoring and registered a further two points before Moycarkey’s next pointed free. A point from Conor Hayes, Moycarkey as the quarter finished meant Moycarkey retained the six point margin, Moycarkey Borris 3-13 Templederry Kenyons 1-13. The final fifteen minutes was going to be tough as Templederry were very much in control of the game. The half time substitution of Eanna Murray proved very beneficial to Templederry as he scored their next six points for them, five of which were from frees. Moycarkey added two points from Pat Ralph (free) and Mossy Bracken but the equaliser of the game came in the fifty eighth minute when Eanna Murray pointed a free. Two further points came from Templederry to leave the final score Templederry Kenyons 1-23 Moycarkey Borris 3-15.
