Match Report by Michael Halpin
At the other end, the forwards line were beginning to find their feet. Adam Hogan and Micheal Carey in the corners were getting on top of their individual battles and four points between them and Jack Delaney left the half time score 0-6 to 0-2. With only 4 points in the difference a good start in the second half was vital and that’s exactly what happened with some great build up play by Michael O Donoghue and Jake Ryan driving at the defence. A shot by Mark Daniels saved excellently by the goalkeeper but top scorer Jack Delaney w`s on hand to knock the ball into the net. This followed by a pair of scores from captain and midfielder Liam McCutcheon pushed out the advantage.
Scariff were not giving up without a fight though and continued to give their all. A large portion of the half was spent repelling attacks from the Clare team. It was at this point that the Borrisoleigh half back line took control of the proceedings. Anchored by man of the match Eoin Stapleton and flanked by Jack Prior and Liam Ryan, they broke up the Scariff play time after time and allowed midfielder Niall O Farrell and Liam McCutcheon to sweep forward. Adam Hogan knocked over a beautiful point. With the forwards now refreshed by the addition of Jerry Kelly, Richard O Donoghue, Alan Ryan, Tom Fitzgerald and Sean Flaherty, they continued to torment their markers.
A disputed late goal was of little consolation to Scariff and robbed James McCormack of the clean sheet his performance deserved having made some key saves at vital times during the game. As the full time whistle blew the scoreline read 1-14 to 1-3 so whilst not firing on all cylinders St Josephs College recorded the win and their unbeaten season continues. Next up for the Tipperary Champions is Rice College of Ennis.
