Disappointment for Tipperary as Cork Progress in Eirgrid Munster Under-20 Championship

Disappointment for Tipperary as Cork Progress in the Eirgrid Munster Under-20 Championship

Tipperary stand to attention for Amhrán na bhFiann

Eirgrid Munster Under-20 Quarter Final

Cork 1-20 Tipperary 0-8

The disappointment was evident from all concerned following Cork’s 1-20 to 0-8 win over Tipperary this evening in Páirc Uí Rinn especially given the huge effort put in by the panel, management and backroom team all year in preparation for this game. While there is no doubt that Cork deserved their win, the margin did not do justice to this hardworking Tipperary side who were unfortunate to see a number of chances at crucial stages drift wide and drop short and they also had to play with fourteen men following John Lyons’s black card in the 48th minute after using their full compliment of substitutes.

Played in front of 1,161 spectators Tipperary started brightly and owned the ball in the opening minutes and took the lead for the one and only time through a fine Ryan Lambe point in the fifth minute however the home side soon took over and controlled the game throughout.

With the wind at their backs Cork entered the break 0-11 to 0-3 to the good although with twenty minutes on the clock the score stood at 0-5 to 0-3 with Ríain Quigley and Conal Kennedy getting Tipperary’s second and third points and no one in attendance could have foreseen the chokehold Cork would have from here on in. In an eight minute spell Cork kicked six unanswered points and indeed could have had two goals also but for the cat-like reflexes of Kian Quinn in the Premier goal.

Tipperary needed to start brightly in the second period and they did just that through substitute Jack Delahunty who fired over two quick points but any hopes of a Premier revival were quickly put to bed. Cork quickly got into their stride and reeled off 1-9 to end Tipperary’s hopes in this contest with Cillian Myers Murray grabbing the game’s sole goal.

Scorers for Tipperary: Jack Delahunty 0-3 , Conal Kennedy (0-2) , Ryan Lambe (0-1), Riain Quigley (0-1), Brian Fitzpatrick (0-1).

Tipperary Lose Out to Cork in Munster Semi-Final

Cork Progress to Munster Final as Tipperary Face Uncertain Road in Qualifiers

Munster Senior Football Semi-Final

Tipperary 0-9  Cork 1-17

Semple Stadium, Thurles

The disappointment was palpable under the Old Stand as players and management trudged slowly back to the dressing room following this evening’s Munster semi-final clash against Cork in Semple Stadium. The Premier players had travelled to the Stadium with high hopes that last year’s defeat would be avenged but it was not to be as Cork ran out comfortable winners in front of 3,339 patrons.

Cork throughly deserved their win but Tipperary will wonder where it all went wrong. Training had been going extremely well in recent weeks and the camp were confident but during the game it was easy to see that there was a spark missing, the team just wasn’t their usual selves and Cork capitalised. For Liam Kearns’ men they now await Monday’s qualifier draw to see who they’ll be playing next.

Liam McGrath and Kevin Crowley battle for possession

Early on it looked as this was going to be a rip roaring affair with the sides deadlocked at 0-3 apiece but then the Rebels exploded into life scoring 1-5 to Tipperary’s 0-1 during the remainder of the half.

Tipperary’s points came from Michael Quinlivan, Jack Kennedy and two from Liam McGrath. Tipperary did create two goalscoring chances during the opening half and had they been scored this game would have taken a completely different direction. Full-forward Michael Quinlivan bore down on goal and his shot was blocked with a neat save by Mark White in the 12th minute. Seven minutes late Quinlivan found Liam Casey with an exquisite pass but the Cahir man’s effort was, once again, superbly saved by Mark White.

Cork created chances of their own and Aidan Walsh appeared to be certain to goal until team captain Robbie Kiely got in for an amazing dispossession. Approaching half-time Colm O’ Neill blasted home the game’s only three pointer and gave his side a comfortable cushion heading into the break.

Tipperary needed to make quick inroads onto the scoreboard upon the resumption but it was the visitors who got three early second-half points through Luke Connolly (2) and Mark Collins as the game slipped away from Liam Kearns’ men.

Indeed it took fifteen minutes for Tipperary to register their opening score of the second-half, a pointed Liam McGrath free. This saw Tipperary’s best period of the game as Liam Boland, Liam McGrath (2) and half-time substitute Philip Austin kick over points to reduce the gap to 0-9 to 1-11 and the home crowd started to sense something might be on but Cork however were not in generous form.

The Rebels closed out the game with a string of points from Luke Connolly (2), Paul Kerrigan (2), Mark Collins and Brian Hurley to leave it 0-9 to 1-17 at full time.

Tipperary: Evan Comerford, Shane O’Connell, Alan Campbell, John Meagher, Jimmy Feehan, Robbie Kiely (Captain), Bill Maher, Liam Casey, Steven O’Brien, Josh Keane, Jack Kennedy (0-1), Brian Fox, Conor Sweeney, Michael Quinlivan (0-1), Liam McGrath (0-5).

Substitutes: Philip Austin (0-1) for Feehan, Kevin Fahey for Kiely, Liam Boland (0-1) for Casey, Jason Lonergan for Keane, Kevin O’ Halloran for Sweeney.

Cork: Mark White, Kevin Crowley, Jamie O’Sullivan, Kevin Flahive, Seán White (0-1), Stephen Cronin, Tomás Clancy, Aidan Walsh, Ian Maguire, Kevin O’Driscoll, Mark Collins (0-3), Ruairí Deane, John O’Rourke, Colm O’Neill (1-0), Luke Connolly (0-10).

Substitutions: Brian Hurley (0-1) for O’Neill, Ronan O’Toole for O’Driscoll, Peter Kelleher for Walsh, Paul Kerrigan (0-2) for O’ Rourke, James Loughrey for White, Mathew Taylor for Clancy.

Referee: Anthony Nolan (Wicklow).
