Tipperary Water County Under 21 B Semi Final Championship
Next weekend Moycarkey Borris will contest Lorrha Dorrha GAA Club in the Tipperary Water County Under 21 B Final following their comprehensive victory over Cahir on Sunday last in Bansha.

The game opened with pointed frees being traded in the first two minutes of the game. Moycarkey Borris built on this when in the fourth minute JJ Darmody scored a point from a Rhys Shelly free. On the tenth minute Moycarkey added a further point from the side line ably taken by Tom Hayes. Brendan Donaghy kept Cahir close before Anthony McKelvey netted the ball for Moycarkey, when the free he hit lobbed over the Nicholas Reidy’s head in the net. As the quarter turned Anthony pointed another free to give Moycarkey a cushion of five points before an eighth minute period when the ball ebbed and flowed from end to end. In the twenty third minute Cahir’s Ryan Murphy pointed another free before Anthony McKelvey raised another green flag. Jack Fallon concluded Moycarkey Borris’s scoring for the first half before another two pointed frees by Ryan Murphy were added to Cahir’s. The half time score Moycarkey Borris 2-5 Cahir 0-5.

With the aid of the slight freezing cold breeze, Moycarkey Borris opened their second half scoring with a pointed free from Anthony McKelvey and a Kevin O’Regan point. In the thirty eighth minute Anthony McKelvey got his hat trick of goals. Ryan Murphy, Cahir replied with a pointed free before Anthony found the net for his fourth goal. Moycarkey had now stretched their margin to thirteen points. With another twenty minutes on the clock, Cahir had it all to do and were forced into giving away a number of frees. Moycarkey’s next four points were from Anthony McKelvey, all frees. JJ Darmody and Conor Cashman traded goals around the fifty fourth minute before Tom Hayes pointed. The final scores of the game were a hat trick of pointed frees for Tom Hayes as Moycarkey-Borris ran out 5-15 to 1-6 winners
