|Tipp had a comfortable win over Galway to make the|
senior hurling final.
The second half saw Tipp keep their noses in front.
Galway had a
good chance at a goal shortly after the restart. Moylan found JJ Doyle in front of goal, but
Doyle's pull was saved by James Logue in
goal for Tipp. With 20 minutes of the
second period expired, Galway had managed just
2 points, one each from Curran and Moylan.
Tipp fared a little better with 4, one from Neil Foyle and 3 from
Morris. With about 10 minutes left in
the game Sean Moriarty fired home an excellent goal to put Tipp 7 points to the
good. With little to show that Galway had a comeback in them the outcome looked
inevitable. There were a couple more
goal chances for Galway, but on each occasion
Logue was there to intervene and prevent the ball from crossing the line. Tipp finished out the game outscoring Galway 7 points to one.
A handy win for Tipp, while Galway will
wait to see whether they will be facing Wexford or Fr. Tom Burke's in the
semi-final next Sunday.
