"Tipperary Water" Seamus O Riain Cup Relegation
Seamus O’Riain Cup Relegation - Moycarkey-Borris 1-22 Ballingarry 0-11

By Ed Donnelly
Moycarkey-Borris took a significant step in retaining their Senior status by putting in a dominant performance to see off the challenge of Ballingarry at a sunny Leahy Park Cashel on Sunday afternoon.

Both of these clubs had won their opening games by large margins and a close game was expected, in particular following a two-point victory by Ballingarry when the sides met in the County Senior Hurling League in June.

Ballingarry got off to the better start, taking a 0-2 to 0-1 lead inside five minutes, the scores coming from Ian Ivors (free) and Dylan Walsh with Moycarkey’s reply from a Kieran Morris pointed free. Moycarkey would add the next two points courtesy of two further Morris frees before the same player found Tom Hayes in space and the Moycarkey-Borris wing-forward’s shot beat James Logue in the Ballingarry goal to raise the green flag and put Moycarkey in front by four points. The teams traded pointed frees from Ian Ivors and Kieran Morris to leave Moycarkey in front by 1-4 to 0-3 heading in to the second quarter.

Boosted by the good start, Moycarkey went on to dominate the remainder of the opening half as points followed from Pat Carey, Kieran Morris (4), Phil Kelly and Paul Dempsey with a solitary reply courtesy of an Ian Ivors point from play for Ballingarry. The South club did manage to add two pointed frees from Adrian Cleere in first half injury time to leave Moycarkey in front by double-scores at the interval, 1-11 to 0-7.

Ballingarry needed a strong start to the second half but scores were at a premium in the third quarter as both teams cancelled each other out. Ballingarry added three points courtesy of Adrian Cleere and two pointed frees by Philip Ivors with Moycarkey adding three points from play by Kieran Morris (2) and Rory Ryan to leave the scores 1-14 to 0-10 heading in to the final 15 minutes.

As both clubs began to introduce substitutes, it was the Moycarkey-Borris bench which made the greater impact in the closing stages. Anthony McKelvey was introduced for Paul Dempsey and helped himself to three points in the closing stages while another substitute Pat Ralph also got on the scoresheet. Kieran Morris (2), Bill McCormack (free) and Pat Carey added further points for a rampant Moycarkey side in the final quarter and long before the finish, this game was over as a contest with Moycarkey-Borris winning by 14 points, 1-22 to 0-11.

Moycarkey-Borris will now play Knockavilla Donaskeigh Kickhams in their final game in two weeks time needing to avoid a heavy defeat to preserve their Senior status for 2018.

Moycarkey-Borris: Bill McCormack (0-1 free); Chris McCullagh, James Power, Kevin Moran; Conor Hayes, David Morris, Pat Molloy; Rory Ryan (0-1), Phil Kelly (0-1); Niall Heffernan, Pat Carey (0-2), Tom Hayes (1-0); Kieran Morris (0-12, 0-8 frees), Paul Dempsey (0-1), Mossy Bracken

Subs: Niall O’Sullivan for Kevin Moran (h/t), Anthony McKelvey (0-3, 0-1 free) for Paul Dempsey (37th minute), Kieran Cummins for Rory Ryan (50th minute), Pat Ralph (0-1) for Phil Kelly (51st minute), Mattie Ryan for Niall Heffernan (55th minute)

Junior Championship
Tipperary Water County Junior “A” Hurling Championship Quarter-Final - Moycarkey-Borris 0-13 Skeheenarinky 0-10

By Ed Donnelly
Moycarkey-Borris are through to the County Junior “A” Hurling Semi-Finals following a hard-earned victory over South Champions Skeheenarinky at a rain-sodden Cahir GAA grounds on Saturday afternoon.

Brian Moran opened the scoring for Moycarkey-Borris with a point from play in the opening minute but we would have to wait another 12 minutes before the next score, a pointed free from Brian Moran. Skeheenarinky got off the mark in the 14th minute with a pointed free by Fionan O’Sullivan. Points followed from John Bergin and Conor Sweeney (free) to leave the scoreline at 0-3 to 0-2 in favour of Moycarkey-Borris after 20 minutes. Moycarkey-Borris were having the better of the general play at this stage and allied to a high work rate, the scores began to flow with Tony Flanagan, Brian Moran (free) and John Bergin (2) adding points. A solitary reply from Conor Sweeney (free) left the Mid side in control at the interval, 0-7 to 0-3.

The opening stages of the second half looked like it would more of the same as John Bergin and Jamie Costello scored points from play to put Moycarkey-Borris in front by 0-9 to 0-3. However, Skeheenarinky were not crowned South champions for no reason and they began to dominate at half-back and midfield to begin their comeback. A pointed free by Conor Sweeney was followed quickly by two points from play by Tommy and Conor Sweeney, the only scores from play for Skeheenarinky in the game. These scores were followed by three pointed frees by Conor Sweeney and after 47 minutes, the scores were level at 0-9 to 0-9 and all the momentum was with Skeheenarinky.

At this stage, Moycarkey-Borris began to empty the bench in an attempt to wrestle back control in match. Without exception, each of the substitutes contributed when introduced as Moycarkey had to win this game for a second time. At nine points apiece, the next score would be crucial and when substitute Micheal Cussen was fouled, Brian Moran pointed the free to put Moycarkey-Borris back in front after 50 minutes. After five minutes of end to end hurling but no scores, Anthony Healy won possession and after a long run scored a point from play. Two minutes later, substitute Joey Doran scored another Moycarkey point from play to give the Mid side a three-point advantage heading in to the closing stages.

In the 59th minute, Skeheenarinky won possession inside the 20 metre line and despite having an overlap where a goal chance looked likely, the referee blew for a free in which was pointed by Conor Sweeney to leave just two points between the sides. Skeheenarinky dropped a number of balls in to the danger area in the remaining moments but the Moycarkey-Borris defence along with substitute JJ Darmody managed to clear their lines and in the final action, substitute Rob Doran scored a point from play to leave the final score, 0-13 to 0-10.

Moycarkey-Borris ended the game with 7 different scorers from play with John Bergin in particular doing well at centre-forward scoring four. On the flip side, Skeheenarinky only scored 2 of their 10 points from play and in the end, that ultimately was the difference between the sides.

Moycarkey-Borris: David Ryan; Mikey Bergin, Aidan Maher, Timmy Ryan; Eric Fanning, Niall O’Sullivan, Rory O’Regan; Eoghan Hayes, Gerry McGuire; Jamie Costello (0-1), John Bergin (0-4), Brian Moran (0-4, 0-3 frees); Anthony Healy (0-1), Tony Flanagan (0-1), Ger Carey

Subs: Micheal Cussen for Hayes (blood – 3m-8m), Kevin O’Regan for McGuire (blood – 7m-8m), Micheal Cussen for Carey (41m), Joey Doran (0-1) for Costello (48m), Rob Doran (0-1) for Flanagan (52m), JJ Darmody for McGuire (56m)

"Tipperary Water" Seamus O Riain Cup Relegation
A change of venue within twenty four hours of the throw in meant all Moycarkey Borris supporters travelled to Templemore at an earlier time of 3pm for Moycarkey’s first game in their relegation competition.

In blustery wet conditions the game was overseen by Keith Delahunty and from the throw in Moycarkey’s Phil Kelly conceded a free which was pointed by Borrisokane. An equaliser came from Pat Carey in the following minute. In the fourth minute a puck out caught by Phil Kelly from the air was immediately hit straight back between the posts. Moycarkey registered another two unanswered points from Paul Dempsey and Kieran Morris before Borrisokane added one of their own. Another two points from Tom Hayes and Niall Heffernan gave Moycarkey a four point advantage which was quickly withdrawn when Philip Austin netted the ball for Borrisokane. Kieran Morris pointed twice, to Borrisokane’s single point, before he assisted Tom Hayes who raised the green flag for Moycarkey. Borrisokane added two further points before Paul Dempsey scored a goal for Moycarkey, again set up by Kieran Morris. Points were traded by the teams before they went in at half time Moycarkey 2-9 Borrisokane 1-6.

A heavy shower during the half time meant a very heavy and soggy ground for the second half. Points from Phil Kelly (2), Kieran Morris (2) and Pat Carey were traded with Borrisokane but the team from the North Division registered two extra points to reduce the margin to four points, Moycarkey 2-14 Borrisokane 1-13. Borrisokane created a number of goal chances in this period but the Moycarkey’s defence stood firm despite the sustained pressure. In the fifty fourth minute Pat Carey’s shot on goal was blocked but Kieran Morris tapped the rebound into the net. The following minute saw substitute Anthony McKelvey add another goal to the score line. Points form Niall Heffernan and Kieran Morris concluded Moycarkey’s scoring but Borrisokane added a further goal and point to their score line before the final whistle blew, Moycarkey 4-16 Borrisokane 2-14. Moycarkey Borris will look forward to meeting Ballingarry on Sunday in Cashel at 1.30pm. 

Moycarkey-Borris: Bill McCormack; Chris McCullagh, James Power, Kevin Moran; Conor Hayes, David Morris, Pat Molloy; Rory Ryan, Phil Kelly (0-3); Niall Heffernan (0-2), Pat Carey (0-2), Tom Hayes (1-1); Kieran Morris (1-7, 4 frees), Paul Dempsey (1-1), Mossy Bracken

Subs: Niall O’Sullivan for Rory Ryan (h/t), Anthony McKelvey (1-0) for Paul Dempsey (39th minute), Kieran Cummins for David Morris (52nd minute), Mattie Ryan for Mossy Bracken (54th minute), Eoghan Hayes for Phil Kelly (56th minute)

Mid Minor “A” Hurling Championship Final
Thurles Credit Union Mid Tipperary Minor A Hurling Championship Final
Moycarkey-Borris 2-24 Holycross-Ballycahill 1-25 (after extra time)
Report by Ed Donnelly

Moycarkey-Borris captured the Mid Minor A Hurling title for the first time since 2005 courtesy of an extra time victory over Holycross-Ballycahill on Saturday in Templemore.

This was a rip-roaring contest from the start as Moycarkey played the first half with the advantage of the strong wind. With the assistance of the elements, Moycarkey raced in to a seven-point lead with points by Anthony McKelvey (3) and John Kirwan before a long range free from McKelvey dropped in to the danger area with Mark Heffernan quickest to react to raise a green flag. Darragh Woods converted a couple of frees to open Holycross-Ballycahill’s account before further points from McKelvey and Darren Flood restored Moycarkey’s seven-point lead after 11 minutes, 1-6 to 0-2.

Moycarkey lost their way somewhat over the next few minutes as Woods added three further pointed frees to reduce the deficit before Zach Jackson picked up two yellow cards in a minute to reduce Moycarkey to 14 men after 17 minutes of the first half. After 11 minutes without a score, Moycarkey’s Anthony McKelvey saw his goal chance deflected at the expense of a ’65 which the same player pointed to leave Moycarkey in front by 1-7 to 0-5 after 22 minutes. In the remainder of the half, McKelvey and Woods added three points each for their respective teams and on the stroke of half time, Mikey Nally saw his goal chance well saved by Moycarkey goalie Rhys Shelly and the interval arrived with Moycarkey in front by 1-10 to 0-8.

Holycross opened the second half scoring with a Darragh Woods pointed free before Moycarkey won a free in front of goal from the resulting puck-out. As Holycross players retreated on the line, Anthony McKelvey took a quick free to the unmarked Jack Fallon who rattled the net to put Moycarkey in front by 2-10 to 0-9. Woods responded with a point from a sideline cut before two McKelvey frees put Moycarkey in front by eight points.

With a player advantage and the assistance of the strong wind, it was only a matter of time before the Holycross pressure would pay dividends on the scoreboard and so it proved. Over the next 20 minutes of play, Holycross outscored their opponents by 0-7 to 0-1 as Woods (5), Jimmy Ryan and Eanna Ryan added points with the sole response from Moycarkey being an Anthony McKelvey free.

With the deficit reduced to two points (2-13 to 0-17), Moycarkey steadied the ship somewhat with points by McKelvey and Flood to leave their side four points in front with five minutes remaining. Holycross were now pushing hard for the goal to bring them back in to the game but had to settle for points from Mikey Nally and Darragh Woods (free) to leave just two points between the teams heading in to injury time.

All through the second half, balls rained down on the Moycarkey full-back line and were dealt with but in the 61st minute, another long-range shot dropped short and from the ensuing ruck ball, Mikey Nally managed to get a shot in from close range for a goal to put Holycross in front by a point. From the puckout, Holycross won possession again and a long-range shot hit the post and came back out when a point would have sealed the victory. Moycarkey cleared the ball and substitute Diarmuid Maher gained possession and his shot from all of 50 metres in to the teeth of the wind dissected the Holycross posts for the equaliser, the first time the teams were level throughout the game and we were headed to extra time – 2-16 to 1-19.

Moycarkey were now back to 15 players as they won the toss and elected to play with the wind in the first half of extra time. The high rate of scoring continued with the teams sharing six points in six minutes, McKelvey (free) and John Kirwan (2) for Moycarkey while Darragh Woods (3 frees) replied for Holycross. McKelvey would add on two further points for Moycarkey before the interval with a solitary reply from Woods (free) to leave Moycarkey in front by 2-21 to 1-23 at half-time in extra time.

The scoring rates dropped somewhat in the second half of extra time as cramp began to take hold of players on both teams. Moycarkey went two up thanks to John Kirwan’s fourth point from play before Darragh Woods added another pointed free. Moycarkey were now digging deep and managed to win some vital frees, two of which were pointed by Anthony McKelvey to leave three points between the teams. Darragh Woods did get one back in the 79th minute with a pointed free but that would be the final score and after two minutes of injury time, referee Kevin Jordan blew for full-time with Moycarkey winners by two points.

Afterwards, Moycarkey-Borris wing-back Rory Darmody was presented with the man of the match award before Mid Chairman Joe Kennedy presented the cup to Moycarkey-Borris captain Anthony McKelvey. Credit to Darragh Woods of Holycross who amassed 21 points during the game, 18 from frees, 2 from play and a sideline cut. Ultimately, Moycarkey’s higher spread of scorers and their ability to get the second goal proved decisive in the end following a contest where the margin between victory and defeat was razor thin.

Moycarkey-Borris: Rhys Shelly; Peter Melbourne, Tom Ryan, Ciaran Kearney; Kevin Hayes, Zach Jackson, Rory Darmody; Bill Maher, Jack Fallon (1-1, 0-1 free); Max Hackett, John Kirwan (0-4), Shane Maher; Mark Heffernan (1-0), Anthony McKelvey (0-16, 0-13 frees), Darren Flood (0-2)

Subs: David O’Donnell, Michael Murphy, Diarmuid Maher (0-1), Jack Hackett

Mid Minor “A” Hurling Championship Semi-Final
Moycarkey-Borris 3-16 JK Brackens 2-18
By Ed Donnelly
A 57th minute point by midfielder Jack Morrissey ensured Moycarkey-Borris qualified for the 2017 Mid Minor “A” Hurling Final after an end to end battle with JK Brackens Óg on Wednesday evening in Holycross. 
This was a close knockout encounter all through between two high quality sides with a place in Mid Final at stake. Moycarkey-Borris opened the scoring from the throw-in as Darren Flood gathered possession and scored a point from play. Flood had a goal chance soon afterwards which went a-begging and from the resultant clearance, Andrew Ormonde’s goal chance for Brackens was deflected at the expense of a ’65 which Shane Doyle pointed to open the Templemore side’s account. Brackens would not be waiting too long for their opening goal as in the third minute, a slip in the Moycarkey full-back line allowed Shane Doyle to raise a green flag with an unstoppable ground stroke. Doyle followed up with a pointed free in the fourth minute and Brackens were four points up. 
Moycarkey soon got in to their rhythm and scored five of the next seven points courtesy of John Kirwan (2), Anthony McKelvey (2 frees) and Jack Morrissey to bring them back to within a point, 1-4 to 0-6 after 12 minutes. Shane Doyle was causing problems in the Moycarkey rearguard at this stage and three further points from him (2 frees) with a solitary Moycarkey reply from John Kirwan put Brackens in front by three points heading in to the second quarter. 
Moycarkey would then hit a purple patch, started by an excellent goal as Max Hackett raced through the Brackens defence before passing to Anthony McKelvey who made no mistake. Moycarkey would follow this green flag with three quick points courtesy of Bill Maher, Jack Morrissey and Jack Fallon (free) and now Moycarkey were three points up. McKelvey had another goal chance soon afterwards but his shot from a difficult angle went across the goal. 
To their credit, JK Brackens steadied the ship before half-time and dominated the remaining minutes, scoring four of the last five points of the half to leave the sides level at the break, 1-11 to 1-11. 
Moycarkey needed a good start to the second half and this duly arrived in the opening minute when Jack Fallon’s delivery was caught on the edge of the square by Anthony McKelvey who duly made room for his close range shot which ended in the back of the net for his and Moycarkey’s second goal. From the puckout, Brackens showed they were not going to go away easily as Andrew Ormonde pointed to leave two between the sides. In the 34th minute, Brackens had the chance to take the lead but Moycarkey goalkeeper Rhys Shelly pulled off a double save at the expense of a ’65 which Shane Doyle pointed to leave just the minimum between the sides, 2-11 to 1-13. Brackens levelled soon afterwards with a point and while Max Hackett scored a point from play in the 38th minute to put Moycarkey back in front, it was the Brackens who were doing better in general play at this point and two points in a minute by Shane Doyle (one from a free) put Brackens in front by 1-16 to 2-12 in the 42nd minute. 
Moycarkey needed something to spark them back in to life at this stage and it duly arrived in the 44th minute when Max Hackett’s goal bound shot was well saved only to see Jack Fallon pull first time on the rebound to score Moycarkey’s third goal and put them back in front by two points heading in to the final quarter. An Anthony McKelvey free and a Bill Maher point from play put Moycarkey four points up soon afterwards. 
This JK Brackens side however would not relent and kept up the pressure, creating a goal chance in the 50th minute which was blocked. Shane Doyle pointed a sideline cut and Eanna McBride scored a long-range point to leave just two points between the sides heading in to the last five minutes and it was all to play for. 
Moycarkey midfielder Bill Maher scored his third point from play in the 56th minute to put a goal between the teams again but from the resultant puckout, the ball was worked in to Neil Quinlan who gathered possession rounded his man and scored a JK Brackens goal to leave the sides level for the sixth time in the game. The next score would be crucial and it arrived courtesy of Moycarkey midfielder Jack Morrissey, his fourth of the night with three minutes of normal time remaining. 
There had been some stoppages during the second half and this along with late injuries to Moycarkey’s Jack Morrissey and James Dillon which forced both players off the field meant that nearly six minutes of injury time would be played. Both teams had further chances for scores and one last effort from JK Brackens went narrowly wide as Moycarkey held out for a one-point victory. 
Moycarkey-Borris will now play Holycross-Ballycahill in the Mid Final with lots to improve upon but this game will bring them on significantly. The Final is fixed for Saturday, September 9th at a venue and time to be decided, check out www.moycarkeyborris.com for fixture details.
Moycarkey-Borris: Rhys Shelly; Peter Melbourne, Tom Ryan, David O’Donnell; Kevin Hayes, Zach Jackson, Rory Darmody; Bill Maher (0-3), Jack Morrissey (0-4); Jack Fallon (1-1, 0-1 free), John Kirwan (0-3), James Dillon; Max Hackett (0-1), Anthony McKelvey (2-3, 0-3 frees), Darren Flood (0-1)

Under 16 Team 
Durlas Óg 3-18 Moycarkey-Borris 2-14
Report by Ed Donnelly
Moycarkey-Borris lost out to Durlas Óg by seven points in the Eamon Darmody Turf Care Mid Under 16 A Hurling Final before a large attendance at a showery Littleton on Saturday afternoon. 
Durlas Óg played with wind advantage in the first half and got the opening two scores courtesy of Jack Lanigan and Joe Dwan points from play. Moycarkey soon got in to the game and a long clearance found Darren Flood who gathered possession and scored the opening goal of the game. Moycarkey consolidated their position by scoring four of the next five points courtesy of Flood (3) and Max Hackett to take a four point lead after 15 minutes, 1-4 to 0-3. 
This advantage was short lived when Moycarkey failed to clear their lines and Liam McCormack took full advantage to raise a green flag. Flood and Hackett replied with points from play for Moycarkey-Borris who led by two points after 20 minutes. The final 10 minutes of the opening half belonged completely to Durlas Óg who dominated possession and scored six points without reply. Darren Flood completed the first half scoring with a pointed free leaving the half-time score at 1-10 to 1-7 in favour of the Thurles side. 
Moycarkey now had wind advantage in the second half and needed to make a good start. However, instead it was Durlas Óg who outscored their opponents by 2-3 to 0-1 in the opening 15 minutes, the Durlas Óg goals coming courtesy of Darragh Stakelum and Liam McCormack to stretch their advantage to 11 points heading in to the final quarter. 
Moycarkey to the credit kept up the pressure and were rewarded with a Kyle Shelly goal in the 46th minute to reduce the deficit to seven points. The closing stages were quite even with Durlas Óg continuing to pick off their points while keeping the Moycarkey forwards at bay by not conceding any further goals and by the end, Durlas Óg were deserving winners by 3-18 to 2-14. 
Moycarkey-Borris: Liam McDonagh; Robbie Keane Butler, Michael O’Donnell, Thomas Whelan; Dylan Shaw, Peter Melbourne, Kyle Ryan; Kevin Hayes, Lewis Kearney; Shane Burke, Max Hackett (Captain, 0-2), Liam Hayes; Kyle Shelly (1-0), Darren Flood (1-12, 0-7 frees), Eoin Sheridan
Subs: John Coffey for Burke (44m), Jack O’Dwyer for Sheridan (44m), Andrew Alexander for Hayes (50m), Tom Maher for Keane Butler (54m).

Roskeen Construction Mid Tipperary Junior A Hurling Championship 
Report by Caitlin Donnelly.
It was all to play for in the Roskeen Construction Mid Tipperary Junior A Hurling Championship Quarter-Final between Moycarkey Borris and Thurles Gaels in Littleton on Friday evening. 

It was nip and tuck from the start and after five minutes Thurles Gaels were ahead by one point with Moycarkey only scoring from frees, Thurles Gaels 0-3 Moycarkey Borris 0-2. The game was close throughout and when Eoghan Hayes won a free with fifteen minutes gone to allow for a Tony Flanagan point Moycarkey took the lead, 0-7 to 0-6. While Moycarkey were ahead by three points at the break it was clear goals were going to win this game. 

As the second half started both teams were eager to win this match. An almost goal chance for Thurles Gaels was stopped by Michael Bergin which ensured Moycarkey kept their lead. Both teams kept hitting over scores but a well struck point by Ailbe Power just after his wide gave Moycarkey momentum to push on. A missed goal chance and four wides from Moycarkey allowed Thurles Gaels to drop a long ball into the square. Thurles Gaels managed to get it across the line levelling the game, 0-16 to 1-13. 

Thurles Gaels reacted better but Moycarkey dug deep and a Robert Doran goal gave Moycarkey a three point lead, 1-16 to 1-13. With two minutes to go in normal time Thurles Gaels won a free in front of the goal. Moycarkey backs along with goalkeeper David Ryan lined up on the goal line. A well taken shot was blocked by Rory O'Regan and it was evident from there that Moycarkey would push on to victory. Final score was Moycarkey 1-18 Thurles Gaels 1-13.

After this Quarter-Final victory, there was little time for the team to rest on their laurels with a Semi-Final date with Thurles Sarsfields scheduled less than 40 hours later, Sunday at midday in Gortnahoe. The first half was a very tight affair and while Moycarkey-Borris led for most of the opening period, a Mark Lanigan goal for Sarsfields ensured they led by 1-8 to 0-9 at the interval. Ten minutes in to the second half, the Thurles side had increased their lead to four points. However, a Moycarkey goal courtesy of Brian Moran along with a couple of points put us in front by a point heading in to the final quarter. Thurles would level soon afterwards but the momentum was now with Moycarkey and three unanswered points put the red and yellow side in to a commanding position. Sarsfields tried valiantly for the scores to bring the game level but the Moycarkey defence were strong and at the final whistle, Moycarkey ran out two-point winners, 1-20 to 1-18. Moycarkey-Borris will now play Holycross-Ballycahill in the Mid Junior A Hurling Final and have also qualified for the County Quarter-Finals in this grade.

In the B competition Tipperary left the competition in dramatic fashion when penalties were required to separate Tipperary and Cork. Peter Melbourne represented Moycarkey Borris. 
In the Under 15 Competition Tipperary had two teams and Moycarkey Borris was represented on the A team by Noel McKelvey who managed the team. Noel and his team were competing in Cork and won the A Plate Final. Kyle Ryan represented Moycarkey Borris on the B team who played in Tulla, Co.

Centenary Agri Mid Tipperary Senior Hurling Championship Quarter Final
Moycarkey Borris Senior Hurling team and their supporters travelled to Boherlahan on Sunday last to compete against Holycross Ballycahill in the Centenary Agri Mid Tipperary Senior Hurling Championship Quarter Final.

Moycarkey Borris had the first wide of the game and from the puckout Holycross’s Gavin Dunne registered their first score. Holycross added two further points from Byran O’Mara and Darragh Woods. Moycarkey’s Kieran Morris put Moycarkey on the scoreboard when he pointed in the seventh minute. Holycross saved Moycarkey’s Pat Ralph’s goal chance but Moycarkey did not have the same fortune when from the puckout the ball was worked down to Luke O’Mara who rattled the net for Holycross. Jack Skehan pointed in the following minute to increase the margin to seven points. Moycarkey scored three unanswered points from Phil Kelly and Kieran Morris (2) in the following eight minutes and points were traded in the nineteenth minute. In the twenty first minute, Holycross’s Liam Moloney pointed while it took Moycarkey a further four minutes for Phil Kelly to add to their scoreline. Two further pointed frees from Darragh Woods in the final minutes of the half meant Holycross had a cushion of five points going in at half time; Holycross Ballycahill 1-8 Moycarkey 0-6.

Moycarkey Borris opened the scoring in the second half with a Niall Heffernan point but for the next thirteen minutes they did not score while Holycross added four points to their scoreline. Holycross had an eight point margin and wanted to keep it but as Moycarkey were going for a score Anthony McKelvey was pulled down in the goalmouth and Moycarkey were awarded a penalty. Kieran Morris took the penalty but his shot went over the bar for a point for Moycarkey. Bryan O’Mara replied with a point but Moycarkey pushed on again and Pa Carey pointed in the forty seventh minute. This was enhanced further by two pointed frees from Kieran Morris. In the fifth minute, Anthony McKelvey’s point reduced the margin to four points. Pointed frees were traded prior to the fifty ninth minute. Try as they might Moycarkey Borris could not take the goal from the equation. In the fifty ninth minute there was Holycross point from Jack Skehan but Kieran Morris pointed two frees just before the end of normal time to bring the margin to three points. In the next two minutes of added time the teams traded points finishing at the final whistle Holycross Ballycahill 1-16 Moycarkey 0-16.

Moycarkey-Borris: Bill McCormack; Chris McCullagh, James Power, Kevin Moran; Conor Hayes, David Morris, Pat Molloy; Rory Ryan, Phil Kelly (0-3, 1 free); Niall Heffernan (0-1), Pat Carey (0-1), Tom Hayes; Kieran Morris (0-10, 9 frees), Paul Dempsey, Pat Ralph

"Tipperary Water" County Senior Hurling Seamus O’Riain Cup
Moycarkey-Borris lost to Silvermines on a scoreline of 0-27 to 3-12 in The Ragg on Sunday afternoon in the third round of the Seamus O’Riain Cup. The early stages of this game were tight as the sides were level at 5 points apiece after 10 minutes - Kieran Morris (3 frees), Pat Carey and David Morris with the Moycarkey scores. Silvermines were wasteful in the opening exchanges but soon found their range to score six unanswered points. While Rory Ryan and Bill McCormack (free) added to Moycarkey’s tally in the final five minutes of the first half, Silvermines kept adding to their point tally and by the interval, the North side led by 0-15 to 0-7.

Moycarkey needed a good start to the second half but it was Silvermines who stretched their lead to 11 points with the first three white flags after half-time. Moycarkey opened their second half account with a Tom Hayes goal in the 37th minute but this score did little to impact the run of play. Silvermines continued to maintain their advantage throughout the second half and late Moycarkey goals by Kieran Morris and Niall Heffernan (from a 65 metre free) brought a level of respectability to the final scoreline with Silvermines running out as six-point winners.

Moycarkey-Borris: Bill McCormack (0-1 free); Kieran Cummins, Phil Kelly, Kevin Moran; Conor Hayes, James Power, Pat Molloy; Tom Hayes (1-1), Chris McCullagh; Pat Carey (0-1), David Morris (0-1), Niall Heffernan; Kieran Morris (1-5, 0-5 frees), Anthony McKelvey (0-1 free), Rory Ryan (0-2)

Moycarkey Borris will play Silvermines in the "Tipperary Water" County Senior Hurling, Seamus Ó Riain Cup (Group 2) on Sunday, August 13th at 1.30pm in The Ragg.

Minor Team
In Moycarkey Borris’s final group game of the Thurles Credit Union Mid Tipperary Minor A Hurling Championship they hosted Na Sairsealaigh Óg on Wednesday evening. Moycarkey Borris were first on the scoresheet with a Darren Flood point in the opening minute which was quickly followed by an Anthony McKelvey goal. Na Sairsealaigh Óg were next to the scoresheet with a point but a well-placed pass from Anthony McKelvey to John Kirwan meant another green flag for Moycarkey. A pointed free for Moycarkey on the fifth minute gave them a seven point lead. For the following ten minutes the ball flowed from end to end with only Na Sairsealaigh Óg registering two unanswered points. As the first quarter ended both teams traded points. Moycarkey’s five point cushion was taken from them when in the eighteenth minute Na Sairsealaigh Óg scored a point and a goal. Two more points from frees by Anthony McKelvey kept them in the driving seat but in the final three minutes of the half Na Sairsealaigh Óg registered three points to go in at half time, Moycarkey Borris 2-5 Na Sairsealaigh Óg 1-8.

The second half was anyone’s game with both sides evenly matched in this tight contest. The opening score went to Na Sairsealaigh Óg, a point. Max Hackett matched this in the following minute and points were traded again in the thirty fifth minute. Na Sairsealaigh Óg went ahead for the first time in the game in the thirty sixth minute when they scored a goal. Points from Anthony McKelvey (2 frees) and Max Hackett equalised the game again. Another free in the forty first minute put Moycarkey back ahead and they built on this with two more points from Max Hackett and Anthony McKelvey (free). Na Sairsealaigh Óg, however, were never gone far and two quick points in the forty seventh minute equalised the game. Another point shortly after saw Na Sairsealaigh Óg out in front again but a pass received by Anthony McKelvey saw the back of the net. While Moycarkey supporters were celebrating the score the resultant puck out travelled down the field and a miss hit by Na Sairsealaigh Óg rolled over the line into the Moycarkey goal. Na Sairsealaigh Óg were back in front again. The sides traded a further two points each but Na Sairsealaigh Óg took the victory by a single point. Na Sairsealaigh Óg 3-15 Moycarkey Borris 3-14.

There is still one game to be played in the competition between JK Brackens and Holycross-Ballycahill which will be played next week, this will determine the Semi Final line-up.

"Tipperary Water" County Hurling League, Division (2) (Group 1) 
By Ed Donnelly
Moycarkey-Borris produced a dominant second half performance to secure a seven-point victory over Carrick Swan in the County Senior Hurling League played at a sunny Littleton field on Sunday afternoon.

Carrick Swan started the game well and raced in to a 0-5 to 0-3 lead after 10 minutes. Moycarkey’s chances were disrupted by two enforced substitutions in the opening stages as Matty Ryan and Niall O’Sullivan were forced off through injury to be replaced by Daniel Kirby and Kieran Cummins respectively. It didn’t take long for Kirby to get in to the action and he was fouled for a penalty in the 11th minute with Kieran Morris dispatching the resultant placed ball to the back of the net to give Moycarkey the lead, 1-4 to 0-5. Moycarkey stretched their lead to three points entering the second quarter but Carrick Swan took over the game for most of the remainder of the opening half, outscoring Moycarkey by 0-7 to 0-1 before a late Pat Carey point put the Carrick side in front at the interval by 0-13 to 1-8.

Carrick scored two of the first three points of the second half to go in to a three-point lead. However, Moycarkey would totally take over the game at this point, scoring an unanswered 1-7 over an 18-minute period to race in a seven-point lead. Kieran Morris was in accurate form throughout this purple patch while Anthony McKelvey scored the Moycarkey goal. During this period of play, Kevin Moran and the Carrick Swan wing-back received straight red cards following a fracas involving several players. The scores kept coming for Moycarkey as the home side took an 11-point lead heading in to the final stages. Carrick Swan to their credit kept pushing for goals to get back in to the game and they were duly rewarded with a green flag in the 59th minute. It was too little, too late however as Moycarkey were seven points in front at the final whistle.

Moycarkey-Borris: Bill McCormack; Niall O’Sullivan, Phil Kelly, Kevin Moran; Conor Hayes, James Power, Chris McCullagh; Niall Heffernan, Tom Hayes (0-1); Pat Carey (0-3), David Morris, Brian Moran (0-1); Matty Ryan, Anthony McKelvey (1-1), Kieran Morris (1-15, 0-12 frees, 1-0 penalty)
Subs: Daniel Kirby for Ryan (7m, injured), Kieran Cummins for O’Sullivan (8m, injured), Anthony Healy for Brian Moran (57m), Ailbe Power for McKelvey (59m)

Under 16 Footballers
Golden Kilfeacle GAA Club was the venue for the Under 16 A County Football Final on a hot and windy Saturday afternoon. Moycarkey’s County Final came on foot of a victory over Inane Rovers in the Semi Final on a score line of Moycarkey-Borris 1-17 Inane Rovers 2-8. Clonmel Óg/Ballyporeen were the opponents having won the other Semi Final.

Clonmel Óg/Ballyporeen were straight to the scoreboard within the first minute when they raised the green flag which was to be shortly followed by a point for Christopher English. Darragh Brennan, Clonmel Óg/Ballyporeen was next to the score board when he hit the ball between the posts for another point. By the sixth minute Clonmel Óg/Ballyporeen had a goal and two points and Moycarkey were still searching for their scores. Kyle Shelly did not leave them waiting and in the seventh Moycarkey had their first score to be followed by a pointed free in the ninth, Moycarkey had settled. However, it was the twenty first minute before the next score a green flag for Kyle Shelly. The next Moycarkey score would come from some excellent teamwork when a ball caught by Max Hackett passed to Michael O’Donnell would find itself in the path of Kyle who expertly hand punched the ball over his head into the back of the goal mouth. Clonmel Óg/Ballyporeen’s Christopher English pointed to bring the margin back to two before Kyle’s hat trick of goals came in the twenty sixth minute. Clonmel Óg/Ballyporeen added a further three points to their score line to go in at half time Moycarkey Borris 3-2 Clonmel Óg/Ballyporeen 1-6.

As anyone knows a margin of two points in any game is not enough so both teams would have to work hard in the second half and again Clonmel Óg/Ballyporeen were first to the score board with two quick points in the opening minutes to level proceedings. Kevin Hayes pointed Moycarkey’s first point of the second half to regain the lead for Moycarkey. Another pointed free from Kyle Shelly restored the two point margin. The game was about to change when Kevin Hayes, a sterling player for Moycarkey received a black card for a tackle. Clonmel Óg/Ballyporeen soon equalised when Christopher English and Darragh Brennan scored two points in the twelfth and thirteenth minute. As the game turned into the final quarter John Coffey put Moycarkey back in front with a point, just the score they needed as this drove the team on further with points from substitution Andrew Alexander and Kyle Shelly. Moycarkey held the three point margin but Clonmel Óg/Ballyporeen worked tirelessly to get a score and in the twenty fourth minute were rewarded when Darragh Brennan netted the ball for them to equalise. No matter what Moycarkey did the scores evaded them for the final minutes and Clonmel Óg/Ballyporeen added a point to claim the victory; Clonmel Óg/Ballyporeen 2-11 Moycarkey Borris 3-7.
