Fr. Tom Burke's 0-20
Fr. Tom Burke's and
contested a magnificent game of hurling in an atmosphere that has not been seen
in quite some time. Irish Cultural Center Tipperary had called upon the services of
Clinton Hennessy who last played on the famous field eleven years ago. In the end it was a second half Kevin O'Brien
goal that separated the sides and gave Tipperary
a late lead that they managed to hang on to until the final whistle.
|Tipp and Tom's were involved in a great game of hurling Sunday.|
It was intensity from the throw in. Each side produced some excellent hurling, wonderful scores, and tough tackling to keep the crowd on the edges of their seats. With the team's level at four points each, John Mulhall, Zane Keenan, and Niall O'Brien pointed four times between them, to scores from Jack Kellegher and Kevin O'Brien for Tipp. Tipp pulled the lead back in with O'Halloran and Kellegher points as the game flowed up and down the field at speed. By the time the break arrived, Tom's held a three point edge. John Mulhall, and two wonderfully taken points from Keenan from out on the stand side provided Tom's with a 0-13 to 0-10 edge at the break.
|It was Tipp who edged it in the end.|
