Tipperary Water County Junior A Hurling Championship Semi Final
On Sunday last Moycarkey Borris supporters travelled to Templemore to watch their Junior A Hurling team play Toomevara in the County Semi Final. Moycarkey Borris opened their game well with points from John Bergin (3) and a free from Brian Moran to be three points the better of Toomevara’s, Paddy Grace’s single point. Toomevara soon settled in the play and scored three unanswered points to equalise the game on the tenth minute. Brian Moran put Moycarkey back in front again in the fourteenth minute with another point but as the quarter turned Toomevara’s Paddy Grace equalised again. Points were traded again with Anthony Healy and Shane Nolan, Toomevara but on the nineteenth minute Toomevara’s Kieran Flaherty pushed them forward. This was aided by two more pointed frees from Paddy Grace before Moycarkey’s JJ Darmody raised their white flag. This was soon neutralised by a David Young point. In the final minutes of the half Gerry McGuire and Brian Moran traded two points with Paddy Grace to go in at half time Toomevara 0-12 Moycarkey Borris 0-9.

Toomevara opened the second half scoring with a point from Paddy Grace which Joey Doran neutralised. Shane Nolan on the thirty sixth minute stretched Toomevara’s lead to four points. Points were traded again in the forty second minute with Joey Doran and Paddy Grace. On the forty fourth minute Moycarkey rallied and added two quick points from Brian Moran and Anthony Healy to keep them in the game, Toomevara 0-15 Moycarkey Borris 0-13. This comeback was shortlived as Toomevara’s defence did not allow Moycarkey to build on it. Points from newly introduced substitute, Pauric Shanahan and Shane Nolan retained the four-point margin. Moycarkey sub Rob Doran scored their final point of the game but Paddy Grace added two further points for Toomevara to leave the final score; Toomevara 0-19 Moycarkey Borris 0-14.
