Minors lose out to Tipp

in Home/Sport by

Clare’s minor hurlers have suffered their second defeat of the 2018 Munster championship losing to Tipperary by five points.

Tipperary 2-14
Clare 1-12
Venue: Semple Stadium

Having learned from taking their foot off the pedal in their last outing, Tommy Dunne’s Tipperary were eager not to make the same mistakes against a Clare side which made three changes from their round two win over Waterford.

This time round it was the turn of Sean Doyle’s charges to ease off on the gas and once again the punishment for doing so was defeat. Clare led 1-08 1-05 at the interval and failed to push ahead on the resumption.

Within seventeen minutes of the second half, Tipp had outscored the visitors five points to one. Their dominance continued for the remainder of the half limiting Clare to just four white flags in the second half. Mark Rodgers raided for the Banner’s only goal while the Premier managed to secure the win despite being reduced to fourteen. Kiladanagan’s Sean Hayes impressed for the victors.

Clare still have a chance of qualifying but face a talented Limerick in their final game of the round robin.
