St Mary’s Claim Inaugural South Tipperary U/19 A Hurling Final

St. Mary’s 2-20 Carrick Swan 0-20

St Mary’s claimed the inaugural south Tipperary U-19 A hurling final in Fethard on a glorious morning for hurling. The all important score, a goal, came with less than 15 minutes to go as they overcame old foes Carrick Swan in a pulsating match.

Peter McGarry proved the difference for the Clonmel side, scoring a goal in each half and he ran up a personal score of 2-7, 2-2 of which came from from play.

Carrick started brighter and raced into a four points to 2 lead after five minutes.

St Mary’s gradually found their feet and hit four unanswered points before a succession of Carrick Swan frees once again brought the teams level at 0-7 each.

It was nip and tuck throughout as both sides traded frees. Aidan Waters proved crucial for Carrick Swan, with Mary’s duo Peter McGarry and Dean Cagney also accurate when sharing responsibility for placed balls at the other end.

The key score came however when a Mary’s sideline made its way through to Peter McGarry who elected to shoot for goal and the ball flew into the top corner of the net, although a wicked deflection made it difficult for Kerwick.

The goal stretched the Clonmel side’s lead to seven, and although Carrick Swan tried gamely until the end they were unable to threaten the Mary’s goal in any sustained way that could yield the green flag they needed to bring them back into the game. For St Mary’s, it is a win that backs up their win at the corresponding U18 grade in 2020. As well as star man McGarry they were well served by Ross Slattery and James Morris in defence and captain Cathal Deely and Dean Cagney higher up the field.

Swan can be proud of their efforts. Their workrate and intensitywas incredible at times and they just came up short. As well as the excellent Aidan Waters from play and placed balls, they were best served by Ben Mulcaire in defence and Owen Harrigan and Cory Ryan in attack.

Scorers: St Mary’s: P. McGarry 2-7 (4 frees, 1 65), D. Cagney 0-5 frees, C. Deely 0-3, R. Leahy 0-2, J. Morris 0-1, A. Keeley 0-2. Carrick Swan: A Waters 0-14 (11 frees, 1 65), C. Ryan 0-1, C. Lanigan 0-1, O. Harrigan 0-1, D. Power 0-2, S. Power 0-1.
