On a warm Summer morning in the home of hurling in Thurles two teams arrived with a common goal, to take home the Tipperary Allianz Cumann na mBunscol Under 13 B title and thus kick off what was to be a great two days of hurling in the Premier County. 

Both teams were determined from the first whistle but it would be Owen Sheridan who drew first blood for Scoil Mochaomhóg Naofa and with a quick flick of his hurley he found the back of the Holycross net. Not ones to drop the head at this Holycross fought fierce. Ably supported by a superb goalie they managed to work the ball back up the field. However, a strong opposition backline awaited them and kept feeding the ball to Darren Flood who would go on to notch up 5-1 in the first half. Kevin Hayes would finish the first half for Sc. Mochaomhóg Naofa with a great solo run and strike over the bar. 

Holycross came out determined in the second half as was reflected in the scores Scoil Mochaomhóg had to so dearly fight for in the second half. Darren Flood would again prove to be a powerful force scoring two goals but was well contained by a strong Holycross backline for most of the second half. Jamie Lee Dwan and the remaining Holycross forwards worked hard to win the ball and keep their opposition under pressure. It would be Scoil Mochaomhóg’s day however with a final whistle signalling victory for Scoil Mochaomhóg Naofa and the end of a great opening game for the Tipperary Allianz Cumann na mBunscol finals in Semple Stadium.
