Under 21

Murroe-Boher rounded off a very good week on Sunday by winning the first ever East Limerick Under 21 12-a-side Hurling Final at Boher. The two teams met in Rd 1 at Harty Park Murroe on 16 March when Murroe-Boher won comfortably but Caherline were determined to restore pride second time around and really took the game to Murroe-Boher. M/B started well with a long range point from Mike Dee but this was the only time we were to be in front until the closing minutes. Caherline played like players possessed and fired over two quick points before a defensive mistake in the M/B squarecost us dearly and by half time this goal remained the difference with the sides at 1.06 to 6 points. The 2nd half saw both sides exchange score for score with top quality hurling and very intense play. Mike Ryan’s free taking kept M/B always within reach as did some good team work up front that paid off with good points from both Karl Cusack and Mike Ryan. But it was a Joe Keays goal that eventually put M/B in front 8 minutes from time. Keays went on a blistering 40 metre run before crashing the ball to the Caherline net from 25 metres out. Not beaten yet Caherline responded with two superb points to level the match but Mike Ryan’s clinical free taking punished two Caherline indiscretions. Caherline besieged the M/B goal in the last minutes before the final whistle sounded but could not get that much needed score.

Murroe-Boher 1.11, Caherline 1.09.

M/B; Conor Moore, David Quigley, Steven Casey, John Ryan, Kevin Boyle, Brian Mackey, Micheal Ryan, Joe Keays (1 goal), Mike Dee (1 pt), Eoghan Tuohey, Mike Ryan / Captain (7 pts; 4 from frees), Karl Cusack (3 pts).
