Electric Ireland MHC Semi-Final

Tipperary 3-24 Galway 3-20

By Shane Brophy at TUS Gaelic Grounds

Tipperary snatched victory from the jaws of defeat to edge past Galway in a thrilling All-Ireland Minor Hurling Semi-Final at the TUS Gaelic Grounds.

Despite forging six points clear at one stage of the second half, Tipp fell behind in the second minute of added time to a fifth Rory Burke point, as Galway looked to be timing their run perfectly.

However, Tipperary weren’t willing to throw in the towel with Adam Daly producing the levelling score before Joe Egan slotted over the lead point, with sub Senan Butler putting the seal on the win with a last ditch goal, all in ninety second spell deep in injury time.

It was a high-quality game, with the sides shooting four points each by the eighth minute, with the latest from Rory Burke following a save from Eoin Horgan. Tipp enjoyed the first purple patch with a four-point run with Conor Martin to the fore.

Galway responded and hit Tipp for a two-goal blast in the 20th minute, with Rory Burke provider in both goals for Aaron Niland and Conor Dolphin. Burke was a real thorn in the Tipperary side with four first half points from play.

However, Tipperary responded well and struck for a goal on 25 minutes with Adam Daly finishing from close range, but Galway enjoyed the better of the play coming up to half time and Niland free gave them a slender 2-11 to 1-13 advantage at the break.

It was Tipperary who took control in the third quarter with Tom Delaney and Paddy McCormack becoming more prominent in attack shooting ten points from play between them, and when Joe Egan goaled in the 43rd minute, it put them in a strong position.

However, they became a little tentative and Galway took full advantage with rising star Aaron Niland top scoring with 2-11, his second goal on 58 minutes setting up a grandstand finish.

It looked as if they were going to snatch victory when Rory Burke scored his fifth from play but as they had done in the Munster Final, Tipperary had other ideas and set-up a final showdown with Offaly in two weeks time.

Scorers for Tipperary: Tom Delaney 0-6; Joe Egan, Adam Daly 1-3 each; Paddy McCormack 0-4; Damien Corbett 0-3 (1 free, 1 65); Senan Butler 1-0; Conor Martin 0-2; Tadhg Sheehan, Cathal English, Ciaran Foley (free) 0-1 each.

Scorers for Galway: Aaron Niland 2-11 (0-7 frees); Rory Burke 0-5; Conor Dolphin 1-2; Cillian Trayers, Orin Burke 0-1 each.

Subs: Paddy Phelan for English (44); Darragh McCarthy for Martin (49); Jamie Ormond for Foley (60); Senan Butler for Corbett (60+3).

All Ireland SHC Quarter-Final

Galway 2-19 Cork 1-21

Galway will face Limerick in the All-Ireland SHC semi-finals after they held off Cork at FBD Semple Stadium in Saturday’s quarter-final.

A pair of first-half goals ensured that the Tribesmen led throughout this game, giving them a fifth straight championship victory over the Rebels. The Munster side will reflect on the concession of those green flags as well as wastefulness at the other end, especially in the first half. Down by five points at half-time, they came back to within one on more than one occasion but an equaliser remained elusive.

The game wasn’t even a half-minute old when Galway corner-back Jack Grealish put them in front as his long ball wasn’t cleanly claimed by Cork goalkeeper Patrick Collins and ended up in the net. Cork almost replied immediately but Éanna Murphy saved from Alan Connolly and the goalkeeper was to make two more important saves in the first period, denying Robbie O’Flynn and Darragh Fitzibbon.

Though Cork did get up and running as Conor Lehane’s free cut the gap to a point, 1-1 to 0-3, Galway’s Conor Cooney replied with a free and then they had a goal as Conor Whelan beat Seán O’Donoghue to a Tom Monaghan delivery and produced a superb low finish across Collins and into the net.

Cork responded well to that and when Robbie O’Flynn landed a fine point on 27, it was 2-3 to 0-6 but Galway had scores from Whelan, David Burke and Joseph Cooney to give them a cushion again.

Shane Kingston’s free for Cork left five in it at the break and then, four minutes into the second half, the same player made it a two-point game when he seized possession as Galway came out of defence and kept his composure to finish well.

However, Henry Shefflin’s side weren’t knocked out of their stride and cancelled out the goal with points from Burke, Conor Cooney and an outrageous Whelan effort. Much of the half was like that as Cork would make a burst to come within touching distance only for Galway – with Joseph Cooney excelling after moving to centre-back – to push on again.

A Cathal Mannion point, awarded by Hawkeye just after a Mark Coleman sideline cut had been similarly adjudicated, made it 2-13 to 1-12, but Cork sub Patrick Horgan had two in a row before O’Flynn got his third. It left a point in it again but once more Galway tacked on a trio, through sub Johnny Coen, Monaghan and Joseph Cooney.

Horgan and another Cork sub, Alan Cadogan – who finished with three points – cut the deficit again but Cathal Mannion popped up with two big points to give him four and Conor Cooney made it 2-19 to 1-18 with 66 minutes on the clock.

Galway wouldn’t score again, but they would survive without needing to. They face Limerick in Croke Park on Sunday, July 3.

Scorers for Galway: Conor Whelan 1-2, Conor Cooney 0-5 (0-4 frees, 0-1 65), Cathal Mannion 0-4, Jack Grealish 1-0, David Burke 0-2, Joseph Cooney, Ronan Glennon, Tom Monaghan, Johnny Coen, Jason Flynn, Brian Concannon 0-1 each.

Scorers for Cork: Shane Kingston 1-2 (0-1 free), Patrick Horgan 0-4 (0-2 frees, 0-1 65), Mark Coleman (0-2 frees, 0-1 sideline), Robbie O'Flynn 0-3 each, Alan Cadogan, Darragh Fitzgibbon 0-3 each, Conor Lehane (0-1f), Luke Meade, Damien Cahalane 0-1 each.

GALWAY: Éanna Murphy; Jack Grealish, Daithí Burke, Darren Morrissey; Gearóid McInerney, Pádraic Mannion, Fintan Burke; Ronan Glennon, David Burke; Tom Monaghan, Conor Cooney, Joseph Cooney; Conor Whelan, Cianán Fahy, Cathal Mannion.
