Murroe/Boher 3-12 Cappamore 0-13
Having not played in the league stages, M/B strangely found themselves in a playoff with Cappamore, with the winner to face South Liberties in the East u21 A Hurling Final.
M/B got off to a blistering start. Great work by Jack Casey set up Eoin Tuohy who calmly fired the sliotar into the Cappamore net. Minutes later after great work by Darragh Kennedy, Karl Cusack fired a rocket into the top corner. A Jack Casey point followed to leave the score M/B 2-01 to 0-00. A futher period of dominance yielded 5 wides in tricky wind conditions. Cappamore found their way into the game through their deadly accurate freetaker. John Ryan made 2 vital saves but M/B only added 1 further point in the remaining 21 minutes to leave it M/B 2-02 Cappamore 0-06 at the interval. Whatever was said at half time, M/B started firing on all cylinders in the second half. Defence and midfield began to dominate and sent a good supply of ball into the forwards. Points by Eoin Tuohy, Jack Casey and Karl Cusack and a cracking goal by Kevin Clohessy saw M/B pull away. Cappamores freetaker was on song as was Kevin Clohessy on M/B frees and they kept the scoreboard ticking over. Eoin Tuohy had the last point of the game and sent M/B into the East final.
