Limerick minors must replay Munster final

Report from the Limerick Leader newspaper

HOLDERS Limerick will face Waterford in a Munster minor hurling final replay for the second successive year after their pulsating showdown ended in a thrilling draw, 3-14 to 2-17, at Pairc Ui Chaoimh this Sunday afternoon.

Limerick looked all set to retain their title when leading their opponents by three points in added time in a free-scoring final. However, Waterford substitute Shane Ryan struck for a dramatic late goal for the All-Ireland champions to send the game to a replay. Twelve months ago, Limerick denied Waterford in similar fashion when bagging a last gasp goal in the provincial decider at the Gaelic Grounds on Munster final day to earn a share of the spoils. Brian Ryan’s Limerick side went on to win the replay.

That second meeting between the counties this year will take place at Semple Stadium, Thurles on Tuesday, July 22. Limerick led 2-8 to 0-12 at half-time, thanks to goals from Barry Nash, a fine individual effort on 15 minutes, while full-forward Tom Morrissey raised a second green flag for the Shannonsiders on 22 minutes.

With the likes of Ronan Lynch, Andrew La Touche Cosgrave, Barry Nash, Cian Lynch, Tom Morrissey and Peter Casey showing up well, Limerick held the upperhand. A run of 1-3 without replay between the 38th and 43rd minutes from Limerick appeared to give Limerick a vital edge. The goal came from Peter Casey on 42 minutes. However, substitute Ryan rescued the day for Waterford late on.

SCORERS – Limerick: Ronan Lynch (0-6, 0-3 frees), Peter Casey (1-2), Barry Nash, Tom Morrissey (1-1) each, Seamus Flanagan (0-2), Cian Lynch, Edward Doyle (0-1) each.

Munster Minor Hurling Championship – Odds and Ends

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. `

1989 was the last time Limerick qualified for 2 consecutive Munster finals.

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.

Waterford and Limerick have finished level at full time on the last 2 occasions that they met in the Munster minor hurling championship. Their 2011 semi-final encounter then resulted in a win for Waterford by 4-17 to 3-15 after extra time and last year Limerick won the replay.

This is only the third occasion that Limerick and Waterford have met in the Munster Minor hurling final – Limerick have won both previous final meetings – 2013 and 1958 (by 8-9 to 2-5)

This is Waterford’s 5th final appearance in 6 years – they won in 2009 (defeated Tipperary) and lost in 2010, 11 (both to Clare) and 13 (to Limerick).

Prior to last year, 2005 was the last time Limerick had appeared in a Munster minor hurling final. They lost then to Cork by 2-18 to 1-12.

Top Scorers by County in 2014 Championship: Clare – Aron Shanagher 6-28 (1-20 frees, 0-2 65s); Cork –  Luke Meade 2-5 each; Kerry – Brandon Barrett (0-4 all frees); Limerick – Colin Ryan 0-13 (0-7 frees); Tipperary – Andrew Coffey 1-3 (0-1 free); Waterford – Patrick Curran 1-14 (0-10 frees).
