Moycarkey Borris GAA Club Notes - 20th June 2016

Féile na nGael
On Friday evening last Moycarkey Borris Under 14 Hurling and Camogie teams commenced their Feile competitions and welcomed their visiting clubs Cuchalainn Hurling Club (Armagh) and Castleblayney Camogie Club (Monaghan). The games commenced at 4pm with a win for the Hurling club against visitors Westport in Littleton. At 6pm the club travelled to Cashel where they met a stronger home side. Their third round game against the club they were hosting, Cuchalainn was vital to decide their position on the table and this was fixed for Saturday morning in Littleton. Although they were a goal short at half time Moycarkey Borris fought hard in the second half to win the game with a point to spare. They now had a Cup Quarter Final in Killenaule against Oranmore-Maree. Moycarkey played well during the first half and went in level but Oranmore-Maree proved to be a much stronger side in the second half and defeated Moycarkey Borris, concluding their competition.

The Camogie Club travelled to Golden for their Feile round games on Friday evening. Their opening game was against visiting club Bray Emmets who proved too strong for Moycarkey. Local club Rockwell Rovers were their second round game and Moycarkey’s defeat here meant that they could only compete in the Shield competition the following day. The third round game was to be decider as to where Moycarkey would play their Quarter Final with a choice of Kilcolman or Littleton. On Saturday morning in Littleton, Castleblayney and Moycarkey played a tough game with the result going in Moycarkey’s favour, they had earned themselves a Shield Quarter Final in Littleton. Westport Camogie Club were their opponents and were too strong for Moycarkey finishing their competition.

Both clubs left the competition at Quarter Final stages but they still had Saturday night to look forward too as the Club’s had organised a disco for all Moycarkey-Borris players along with our visiting clubs, their mentors and supporters in the Muintir Na Tire Hall. This night was well attended and with music by Tommy Healy, a great night was had by all. A special thanks to the Feile coordinators who did a fantastic job making the Feile experience great, Mary Shelly and Sharon Ralph. Well done to all the families who welcomed players and mentors into their homes. Thanks to all the players and mentors. For full results on the competition check out www.moycarkeyborris.com

Senior Hurling
On Saturday evening last Moycarkey Borris earned themselves another round in the CM Signs Cahill Cup when they defeated Drom-Inch in the Quarter Final. It was a tightly contested battle with the highest margin being four points.
Chris McCullagh opened Moycarkey’s scoring with a point but Drom-Inch quickly replied with two points from Seamus and David Butler. Johnny Ryan and Kieran Morris traded frees. Pat Ralph converted another free before David Butler added two more points on the tenth minute. In the next four minutes Moycarkey added three points to Drom-Inch’s single point thus equalising the game at the end of the first quarter, Moycarkey Borris 0-7 Drom-Inch 0-7. In the next minute points were traded before Pat Ralph pointed another free to give Moycarkey the lead. The sides traded frees again before Moycarkey registered two points (Pat Ralph, free and Pat Carey) in the twenty third minute. David Butler added a point to Drom’s score line reducing the margin two points. Another two frees by Moycarkey’s, Pat Ralph ended their scoring but David Butler added a free just before the half time whistle to go in Moycarkey Borris 0-14 Drom-Inch 0-11.
After the restart, a pointed free in the thirty second minute by Pat Ralph opened the scoring. The teams traded a further two points each before David Butler and Johnny Ryan added two more points to Drom-Inch’s score line reducing the deficit to two points as the third quarter finished. Scores were harder to come by for Moycarkey Borris and when Drom-Inch’s Johnny Ryan reduced the margin to a single point in the forty sixth minute the intensity of the game heightened with everyone working harder to get the scores and retain possession. Two more points were added to each team’s score line and in the fifty fourth Kieran Morris pointed a free and stretched the margin to two points with another point to come from Pat Carey. As in the first half the final score went to Drom-Inch’s David Butler, a point finishing the game, Moycarkey Borris 0-21 Drom-Inch 0-19.

Senior Hurling
The first game of the Centenary Agri Mid Senior Hurling Championship was played in Holycross between Moycarkey Borris and JK Brackens on Sunday last. Many expected this to be a tightly contested battle and the first half of the game was just that. In this first minute Shane Scully, JK Brackens opened the scoring with a pointed free. Tom Hayes and Pat Ralph opened Moycarkey’s scoring with a point each. Dean McEnroe, JK Brackens equalised on the fourth minute and the teams traded three points each before JK Brackens took the lead with two points as the game entered the second quarter. Two more Pat Ralph points to Shane Scully’s single point were added to the score line before Niall Heffernan raised the green flag. This goal gave Moycarkey the cushion they needed and also, the determination for the final seven minutes. Six more points for Moycarkey to JK Bracken’s four points meant Moycarkey Borris went in at half time Moycarkey 1-13 JK Brackens 0-12.

The second half started with a frenzy of scores in the second minute the first score was a Lyndon Fairbrother point for the Brackens, just before Kieran Morris netted the ball for Moycarkey followed quickly by a Shane Bourke point for the Brackens. The next Moycarkey score came in the fourth minute, a point from Pat Carey. Moycarkey received a free in the seventh minute and Pat Ralph’s rasper of a shot rattled the net, stretching Moycarkey’s lead to nine points. In the following ten minutes Moycarkey scored an unanswered two points, Tom Hayes and Kieran Morris and a goal by Conor Hayes. The teams traded two points each before Moycarkey added another two unanswered points, Brian Moran and Pat Carey. Moycarkey Borris 4-20 JK Brackens 0-16. Moycarkey Borris now progress to the Mid Semi Final.

Intermediate Hurling
Clonoulty Rossmore hosted Moycarkey Borris in round three of the County Intermediate Hurling League yesterday evening. The opening minutes of the game were nip and tuck with the opening score for Clonoulty Rossmore in the fourth minute. In the sixth minute Moycarkey Borris equalised and this is the way the game proceeded until the twenty second minute when Clonoulty’s Fiachra O’Keeffe netted the ball. In the following minute, a scuffle in the front of the Moycarkey goal resulted in the ball crossing the line to put Clonoulty ahead by four points. Both sides traded a further two points to go in at half time, Clonoulty Rossmore 2-7 Moycarkey Borris 0-9

The second half was a different affair with Clonoulty Rossmore adding three quick points to their score line before Moycarkey added their first in the thirty sixth minute. There was a repeat of the scoring in the next six minutes, with a point each traded before the game entered the final quarter. The margin had increased to eight points before Clonoulty netted the ball in the fiftieth minute. Clonoulty added two further points in normal time before Eamon Clohessy rattled the net for Moycarkey. The concluding score of a point by Ciaran Clohessy reduced the shortfall again to nine points, Clonoulty Rossmore 3-16 Moycarkey Borris 1-13

Senior Hurling
Moycarkey-Borris 3-19 Knockavilla Donaskeigh Kickhams 1-10
Moycarkey-Borris have progressed to the next round of the County Challenge Cup following a comprehensive victory over Kickhams at Dundrum on Friday evening. Kickhams started the game well with two points in the opening minute but a Pat Ralph goal in the second minute kick-started a period of dominance where Moycarkey scored 1-4 without reply. The Kickhams managed to work a goal of their own in the 18th minute to reduce the deficit to just two points but Moycarkey kicked on again, scoring three unanswered points to ensure an interval lead of five points, 1-9 to 1-4.

Kickhams needed a good start to the second half but alas it was Moycarkey who scored two quick points followed by another Pat Ralph goal to double Moycarkey’s lead. Game over. Both teams emptied the bench in the second half and one of the few highlights of the game thereafter saw substitute James O’Gorman work a one-two with Kieran Morris before O’Gorman finished expertly to the net after a strong run through the centre of the Kickhams defence. By the end, the deficit was 15 points – 3-19 to 1-10.

Moycarkey-Borris: Bill McCormack; Gerry McGuire, Paul Dempsey, Kieran Cummins; Daniel Kirby, Rory Ryan, Pat Molloy; Rory O’Regan, Chris McCullagh (0-1); Pat Carey (0-2), Conor Hayes (0-2), Tom Hayes (0-2); Pat Ralph (2-7, 0-6 frees), Kieran Morris (0-2), Niall Heffernan (0-2)

Points were exchanged in the opening minutes and Upperchurch added their second point in the thirty third minute just before Upperchurch scored a goal.

On a wet evening, the opening exchanges were tight as the sides shared the opening six points. Moycarkey eventually got in to their groove and had edged in front by 0-7 to 0-4 at the interval. The second half was barely underway when Kyle Shelly pounced for the game’s opening goal to double Moycarkey’s advantage. Despite the best efforts of Durlas Óg, Moycarkey stayed in front by six points or more during the remainder of the second half until Darren Flood scored Moycarkey’s second goal in injury time to cap off an impressive display for the boys wearing red and yellow – final score Moycarkey Borris 2-12 Durlas Og 0-9. Afterwards, Mid Tipperary Coiste na Nog Chairman Martin Bourke presented the cup, which was kindly sponsored by Tom Murphy to the Moycarkey-Borris full-back and captain Tom Ryan.
