Munster u-16 'A' Championship

 

Kerry 2-16(22) Tipperary 1-07(10)

 

Tipperary lost out to Kerry for the second time this weekend when they travelled to  Fitzgerald Stadium, Killarney on Sunday last March 10th for the first round of the U16A Munster Championship. Referee Michael O’Keeffe delayed the throw in at the start due to a severe hail shower as both sets of players took shelter in the stand. Conditions were blustery and a strong breeze favoured Kerry in the first half. From the throw in it was the home side who settled best quickly registering the opening three scores.  Playing into a strong wind Tipperary had it all to do and from the off were under severe pressure in the back line. Both sides had opportunities to raise the green flag in this opening half but Tipp goalkeeper Megan Tynan pulled off three very important saves mid way through the half to keep a clean sheet. The Kerry defence were holding firm denying Tipp’s advances and holding them scoreless for the opening half. 


Meanwhile the Kerry attack took full advantage of the wind factor to register a half time score of Kerry 0-12 Tipperary 0-0.  On the resumption Tipperary emerged a more determined side and registered the first three scores Sara Finnane (0-2) and Robyn Carey (0-1) all from frees.  Substitue Saoirse Keating was next to point before Kerry responded with a point of their own.  Again Tipperary were on the attack with Robyn Carey scoring a goal from a free that caught the Kerry defence off guard.  Carey was again on hand with another point.  Tipperary had the deficit down to six when substitute Eabha Hogan added her point. However Kerry would score a further three points before two quick fire goals to extinguish any hope Tipperary had of taking anything from the game. Tipperary added a point from Niamh Cunneen to wrap up the scoring. The final score was Kerry 2-16 to Tipperary 1-07. Next up for Tipperary is Cork in round 2 on Saturday next March 16th time and venue to be confirmed.
