Munster Minor Hurling 1st Playoff – Clare 6-25 Kerry 0-11

Clare defeated Kerry by 6-25 to 0-11 in the Electric Ireland Munster Minor Hurling Championship 1st Playoff game on Tuesday April 22nd at the Cusack Park Ennis.

Shanagher does the trick for Clare

Report from the Irish Independent newspaper

Clare made light work of defeating Kerry at Cusack Park in Ennis, handing out a 6-25 to 0-11 drubbing in a play-off game in the Munster minor hurling championship.

Having lost to Waterford in the opening round, the Banner were determined to get back to winning ways and, unfortunately for Kerry, they felt the backlash. Though Clare grabbed the opening score, a goal by full-forward Aaron Shanagher within 75 seconds, the opening half was not completely one-way traffic.

Credit to Kerry, by the 25th minute they found themselves only two points adrift (1-6 to 0-7). Clare boss Eamon Fennessy labelled his side’s first-half display as “diabolical”. Nevertheless Clare’s return of 1-4 to no score in the final five minutes of the opening half helped to steady a few nerves. In-form corner-forward Colin Corbett recorded Clare’s second goal on the stroke of half-time.

It proved to be the score that opened the floodgates in the second period. Clare outscored the Kingdom by 4-15 to 0-3 after half-time. Goals by Shanagher in the 39th and 50th minute plus two others from centre-forward Michael O’Shea and substitute Shane Conroy mortally wounded Kerry.

Scorers – Clare: A Shanagher 3-6 (4fs), C Corbett 1-5, I Galvin 0-6, M O’Shea 1-2, S Conway 1-0, M O’Malley, P McNamara 0-2 each, L O’Donovan, B Guilfoyle 0-1 each. Kerry: B Barrett 0-9 (8fs, 1 ’65’), F Mackessy, J Brick 0-1 each.

Subs: L O’Donovan for Chaplin (h-t), C Smyth for McNamara (43), C Fitzgerald for O’Shea (45), J Cunningham for O’Malley (46), S Conway for Guilfoyle (51).

Munster Minor Hurling Championship – Odds and Ends

Waterford have won at least 1 match in the Munster Minor Hurling Championship over the last 7 years. Cork and Limerick have the next best consecutive streak with at least 1 victory in each of the last 5 years. Tipperary have won a game in each of the last 3 years but need to win their play-off game v Clare or Kerry to maintain that record. While Clare did not secure a victory last year, they won a game in each of the previous 7 years. Tipperary have the best consecutive streak since 2000 winning a game in each of the ten years from 2000 to 2009 inclusive.

Limerick are the defending Munster Minor Hurling Champions following a 1-20 to 4-8 victory over Waterford at Semple Stadium in the 2013 final replay. `

Waterford secured their first All Ireland minor hurling title since 1948 when they defeated Galway in the final on September 8th 2013 by 1-21 to 0-16.

Kerry make a welcome return to the Munster championship this year. In 2012, when they last competed, they lost both their games – the first against Tipperary and the second against Cork. 2013 was a good year for them as they won the All Ireland Minor Hurling B championship defeating Meath by 1-19 to 3-9 in the final.

Cork Coach Mark Landers captained Cork to win the All-Ireland senior hurling title in 1999. Manager Denis Ring guided St. Colman’s College Fermoy to a number of Harty Cup titles. This is a first season in charge for Denis and his team, who were appointed at the end of last season.

Tipperary captain, Brian Hogan, is the son of former TIpperary Senior Hurling goalkeeper and manager Ken. Brian lined out in goal for the Tipperary Minor Hurlers in their two matches last year emulating his father Ken who was the Tipperary Minor Hurling goalkeeper in 1980 and 1981, winning Munster and All-Ireland Minor Hurling medals in 1980.

Clare appeared in 3 Munster minor hurling finals in a row from 2010 to 2012, winning in 2010 and 2011 against Waterford and losing to Tipperary in 2012. Several of their All Ireland senior winning squad of 2013 featured on those minor teams.
