Mid Tipperary Under 21 A Football Championship
Drom & Inch 1-9 Moycarkey Borris 0-5
Report by Caitlin Donnelly

On a cold, damp Sunday morning Moycarkey Borris took on Drom and Inch in the Mid Tipperary Under 21A Football Championship in the Ragg. Drom opened the game strong and scored four points without reply. Drom stayed on top and although they had eleven missed scoring chances in the first half they converted 1-6, Tommy Nolan with the goal. Moycarkey only managed to score 0-1 by JJ Darmody in the first half out of their five scoring chances.

As referee Tom McGrath threw in the ball to start the second half Moycarkey had it all to play for. Drom got the first score of the half and didn't score again for 17 minutes. During that scoring drought Moycarkey scored four points, two points from play from Niall Heffernan and two frees from Anthony McKelvey but that was all they managed to score in the half leaving the scoreline 1-8 to 0-5 with five minutes to go. Drom closed off their victory with a point in the 61st minute and that left the scoreline at Drom And Inch 1-9 Moycarkey Borris 0-5.

Moycarkey definitely improved their performance in the second half and Jack Hackett's ball winning ability and the strong defence of Patrick and James Whelan definitely assisted the side but it wasn't enough for them to secure a win or even draw close to level.

Moycarkey Borris – Rhys Shelly; Michael Bergin, Eric Fanning, Patrick Whelan; Kevin O'Regan, Christopher McCullagh, John Cussen; Tom Hayes, Niall Heffernan (0-2); Jack Hackett, JJ Darmody (0-1), Joey Doran; Anthony McKelvey (0-2 frees), Mossy Darmody, Jack Cleary.
Subs- Jack Bryan, Kieran Kearney, James Whelan, Noel Walsh, Caolan O'Brien, Rory Darmody.


Mid Tipperary Draws
The Mid Tipperary draws were held and a full list of Moycarkey Borris’s draws are available on the website, www.moycarkeyborris.com.


Under 12 Hurlball
Our Under 12 players took part in a hurlball tournament in the Horse and Jockey Handball alley as part of their training which concluded on Sunday last. All twenty four players started out in eight groups of three. The group winners went through to the Cup Competition and the remainder competed in the Shield competition.

In the Cup Competition Liam Corcoran defeated David Costigan 26 to 21 in a hard fought battle and in the Shield Competition it was a nail biter to the finish with Killian Cantwell coming from behind for a very narrow 23 to 21 victory over Tom Ryan.

Overall, this was a great experience for the boys and the Coaches are hoping that the boys will continue to go to the alley to hone their skills.
