2017 Cahill Cup Quarter-Final 
Moycarkey-Borris 2-18 Holycross-Ballycahill 1-23
By Ed Donnelly
Defending champions Moycarkey-Borris bowed out of the Cahill Cup at the Quarter-Final stage on Tuesday last by virtue of a two-point defeat at the hands of neighbours Holycross-Ballycahill at Littleton.
Holycross had the aid of the wind in the opening half but it was Moycarkey who made the better start. Anthony McKelvey accounted for Moycarkey’s first two points and in the ninth minute, McKelvey set up Kieran Morris for a well worked goal and the home side led 1-3 to 0-2. By the end of the first quarter, the sides had added two points each before Holycross took over completely. 
During a ten-minute purple patch, Holycross hit 7 points on the trot and by the interval, Holycross had turned a 4 point deficit in to a 3 point interval lead – 0-12 to 1-6. 
Moycarkey’s play on the resumption improved and the home side drew level within five minutes thanks to unanswered points from Kieran Morris (2) and Pat Ralph. Holycross edged in front again as the game entered the final quarter before another purple patch saw the visitors scoring 1-3 without reply from the 45th to 50th minute to take control of the game, leading by 1-18 to 1-11. 
Moycarkey however responded in the best possible way and four unanswered points from Rory Ryan (2), Mossy Bracken and Kieran Morris brought their side back in to contention. When a Kieran Morris goalbound shot took a deflection and ended up in the net, the sides were level with three minutes of normal time remaining. 
Rather than push on to victory, it was Holycross who took back the imitative and four points in four minutes left Moycarkey needing a goal to salvage a draw. Moycarkey did add on two points in injury time but it was too little, too late and Holycross ran out deserving two point winners. 
Moycarkey Borris team – Bill McCormack; Kieran Cummins, James Power (C), Michael Cussen; Daniel Kirby, Kevin Moran, James Bourke; Mossy Bracken (0-1), Conor Hayes; Matty Ryan, Pat Ralph (0-2), Pat Carey; Rory Ryan (0-3), Kieran Morris (2-9, 0-7 frees), Anto McKelvey (0-2)

Boherlahan was the venue for Troy Marketing Mid Tipperary Under 16 A Championship Football Final on Tuesday evening last with Moycarkey Borris and local rivals, Durlas Óg competing for the title.
The game began with an intensity which showed on the scoreboard and both sides had points on the score board within minutes. By the fifth minute Moycarkey registered the lead and although the first half was close with a tit for tat point scoring, Moycarkey maintained the lead building on it in with three points in the closing minutes of the first half to go in at half time - Moycarkey Borris 0-6 Durlas Óg 0-3.
Moycarkey Borris re-entered the field for the second half with a new intensity and had four points on the scoreboard before Durlas Óg registered their first in the thirty eighth minute. Moycarkey’s purple patch did not end there but continued throughout the half and they added a further eight points to the scoreline while Durlas Óg only added a late consolation goal which did little only enhance their score line. The final score Moycarkey Borris 0-18 Durlas Óg 1-4.
Goals evaded Moycarkey Borris in this game but it was not for trying as they had missed goal chances in the second half with the posts being the main offenders.

2017 Cahill Cup
Moycarkey Borris will play Holycross Ballycahill in the Cahill Cup on Tuesday, May 16th at 7.30pm in Littleton.


Minor A Football Championship
Moycarkey-Borris 1-13 Na Sairsealaigh Óg 0-6
Moycarkey-Borris produced a dominant last 20 minutes to earn a place in the Mid Minor A Football Final by virtue of a flattering 10 point victory over Na Sairsealaigh Óg in Littleton on Saturday evening.

In a low scoring first half, the Thurles side opened the scoring with a point from Kevin Bracken after five minutes. Anthony McKelvey and Max Hackett replied with points from play soon afterwards before Frank McKevitt brought his side level with a point from play. Shane Maher put Moycarkey in front heading in to the second quarter but in truth, it was Na Sairsealaigh Óg who were dominating possession at this stage. This pressure paid off in the 19th minute when the Thurles side won a penalty with David O’Donnell receiving a yellow card for the foul. Frank McKevitt took the spot kick which was well saved by Rhys Shelly. The rebound fell to the onrushing corner-forward Christopher Carew but somehow, Shelly managed to race across his goal to pull off another save and the danger was averted. Thurles had much of the possession for the remainder of the half but struggled to convert their chances and a Diarmuid Maher free in the 28th minute was the only other score of the first half as Moycarkey led by 0-4 to 0-2 at the interval.

The pattern of play in the early stages of the second half continued to see Na Sairsealaigh Óg dominate possession. Kevin Bracken reduced the deficit to a single score in the first minute of the half with a point from play with Moycarkey corner-forward James Dillon replying in kind two minutes later. Sarsfields dominance began to pay dividends as two pointed frees from Frank McKevitt brought the sides level. McKevitt also had a goal chance during this period only to see Rhys Shelly pull off a point blank save to keep his goal intact.

Moycarkey looked to take control of the game in the 40th minute when Anthony McKelvey won a penalty. The Moycarkey full-forward took the penalty himself only to see his shot go narrowly wide with the Thurles goalkeeper beaten. From the resultant kick-out, Na Sairsealaigh Óg worked the ball upfield and took the lead with a point from play by Aidan Butler.

The game looked set for a close finish but Moycarkey seemed to take falling behind in the game as a personal insult as the intensity in their play was raised instantly and to a level which Na Sairsealaigh Óg struggled to live with. With James Dillon operating to good effect in the full forward line, slowly but surely the scores became to come for the home side. It didn’t look that way initially as a good Moycarkey passing move ended with Diarmuid Maher only to see his punched effort hit the crossbar and away to safety. At the third quarter came to an end, James Dillon scored two quick points from play to put Moycarkey back in front by 0-7 to 0-6.

Max Hackett added another point from play in the 47th minute before Na Sairsealaigh Óg were reduced to 14 men when full-back Mikey Stakelum picked up his second yellow card. The momentum was well and truly with Moycarkey now and Thurles struggled to win possession around the middle third. Moycarkey added four points in a five minute spell courtesy of Diarmuid Maher (2), Max Hackett and James Dillon to stretch their lead out to seven points. Na Sairsealaigh Óg found themselves further restricted as their wing-back Seamus Doyle received his marching orders in the 55th minute.

There was still time for Moycarkey to finish with a flourish as James Dillon rounded off an excellent performance by scoring 1-1 in injury time to ensure Moycarkey qualified for the final by virtue of a 1-13 to 0-6 victory. Moycarkey-Borris will now play JK Brackens Óg in the final.

Moycarkey-Borris: Rhys Shelly; David O’Donnell, Kieran Kearney, Rory Darmody; Zach Jackson, Tom Ryan, Kevin Hayes; Bill Maher, Jack Hackett; Max Hackett (0-3), James Dillon (1-5), Shane Maher (0-1); Diarmuid Maher (0-2), Anthony McKelvey (0-2, 0-1 free), Mark Heffernan
Subs; Caolan O’Brien for Shane Maher (48m), Peter Melbourne for David O’Donnell (50m), Sean O’Meara for Max Hackett (55m)

“Tipperary Water” County Hurling League Division 2 Group 1
Loughmore-Castleiney 0-18 Moycarkey-Borris 1-13

Loughmore-Castleiney prevailed in a closely contested County Hurling League round 2 game played at a sunny but windy Littleton on Sunday last. Loughmore had the aid of the strong wind in the first half but it was Moycarkey who made the better start thanks to a Pat Ralph pointed free followed by a Kieran Morris goal within the opening two minutes. Loughmore eventually settled in to the game and thanks mainly to the accurate free-taking of Evan Sweeney, scored seven unanswered points over the next 15 minutes with Sweeney accounting for four of these scores, 3 from frees and 1 from a 65.

Pat Ralph responded with a pointed free in the 19th minute only to see Loughmore add on another 3 points, each from Sweeney frees to open up a 0-10 to 1-2 lead heading in to the closing stages of the first half. Moycarkey’s play improved in those final minutes and points from Pat Ralph (2 frees) and Pat Carey left just two points between the teams. Evan Sweeney added his eighth point from a placed ball just before the interval to leave the half-time score Loughmore-Castleiney 0-11 Moycarkey-Borris 1-5.

Moycarkey played well to open the second half and added points from Pat Ralph (2), Rory Ryan and James Bourke with the sole Loughmore response coming courtesy of an Even Sweeney free and the sides were level after 36 minutes of play. A ten-minute scoreless period was broken when a Pat Ralph free put Moycarkey in front heading in to the final quarter, 1-10 to 0-12. Instead of Moycarkey pushing home their advantage with wind assistance, it was Loughmore who hit a purple patch, hitting five unanswered points in the next 10 minutes with Evan Sweeney (3), Anthony Ryan and Cian Hennessy adding the crucial scores to put Loughmore in control. Rory Ryan, Pat Ralph (free) and Kieran Morris scored late points for Moycarkey but Loughmore kept in front thanks to points from Evan Sweeney and Thomas McGrath to run out winners in the end by two points, 0-18 to 1-13.

Moycarkey Borris team – Bill McCormack; Kieran Cummins, James Power (C), Michael Cussen; Daniel Kirby, Pat Molloy, Kevin Moran; James Bourke (0-1), Mossy Bracken; Rory Ryan (0-2), David Morris, Kieran Morris (1-1); Pat Ralph (0-8 frees), Pat Carey (0-1), Conor Hayes
Subs used – Tom Hayes for Pat Carey (46m), Chris McCullagh for Mossy Bracken (46m), Paul Dempsey for Micheal Cussen (52m)
