Mid Tipperary Junior Hurling League
Moycarkey Borris travelled to Drombane for the next round game in the Mid Tipperary Junior Hurling League on a fine summers evening on Saturday last. Moycarkey opened the scoring in the first minute but Upperchurch Drombane took over from there and added three unanswered points. Points were traded before Upperchurch raised the green flag to stretch the margin to five points. Upperchurch added three points to Moycarkey’s single point with Upperchurch now leading by 6 points after 15 minutes. Moycarkey hit a purple patch in the second quarter, scoring five points and a Ciaran Maher goal to Upperchurch’s two points, to go in at half time with the game equalised, Moycarkey Borris 1-9 Upperchurch Drombane 1-9.

Points were exchanged in the opening minutes and Upperchurch added their second point in the thirty third minute just before Upperchurch scored a goal. Tony Flanagan raised the green flag to keep Moycarkey in the game. Two more points from Upperchurch and a goal in the thirty ninth goal meant a margin of six points. Although the teams traded a further two points, a final three unanswered points from Upperchurch ensured the victory to them. Moycarkey will now play Boherlahan Dualla on Saturday, May 21st in Boherlahan at 7.30pm.

Under 16
Moycarkey-Borris and Durlas Óg contested the Tom Murphy Mid Tipperary Under 16 A Football Final on Monday last May 9th in Holycross. On a wet evening, the opening exchanges were tight as the sides shared the opening six points. Moycarkey eventually got in to their groove and had edged in front by 0-7 to 0-4 at the interval. The second half was barely underway when Kyle Shelly pounced for the game’s opening goal to double Moycarkey’s advantage. Despite the best efforts of Durlas Óg, Moycarkey stayed in front by six points or more during the remainder of the second half until Darren Flood scored Moycarkey’s second goal in injury time to cap off an impressive display for the boys wearing red and yellow – final score Moycarkey Borris 2-12 Durlas Og 0-9. Afterwards, Mid Tipperary Coiste na Nog Chairman Martin Bourke presented the cup, which was kindly sponsored by Tom Murphy to the Moycarkey-Borris full-back and captain Tom Ryan.
