Scariff Community college qualified for the Munster colleges senior B hurling championship when they recorded a two point win over Tralee CBS at the University of Limerick on Wednesday.

Scariff C.C. 0-22 Tralee CBS 2-14

The win sees the East Clare school into the semi-final for the first time in twenty years and here they will meet Blackwter CBS from Lismore in Waterford.

Tralee got off to a great start with a goal in the opening two minutes but the winner’s hit back and when the half time whistle sounded they were 0-12 to 1-7 in front.

They had stretched their lead to eight points at the three quarter stage when the score was 0-20 to 1-9.

An injury to Clare All-Ireland winning minor captain Eoin Gunning resulted in the Broadford man having to leave the action and this proved a big blow to the team and it certainly unsettled the side.

Tralee hit back and levelled the tie at 0-20 to 2-14 but Scariff regained their composure and finished strongly with the last two points to seal victory for the side managed by Seanie McNamara (O’C. Mills), Conor Breen (Newmarket) and Whitegate’s Andrew Fahy who is the team Coach.
