Joy for east Clare combo with U13B hurling title

Scariff-Ogonnelloe 3-14
Clooney-Quin 2-8

A blistering start that saw Scariff-Ogonnelloe fire 1-1 in the opening two minutes set the East Clare amalgamation up for victory in the Under 13B championship final against Clooney-Quin in Broadford.

Goalscorer Oisin Madden was to go on to have an outstanding final scoring 1-6 in total, all of which impressively came from play. Indeed the whole spine of the winning team was excellent, keeping Clooney-Quin on the backfoot for most of the match.

The first half saw Scariff-Ogonnelloe in the ascendancy with further points from Madden (5), Caimin Dinan and two placed balls from Paul Rodgers giving them a 1-9 to 0-4 half-time lead.

A different Clooney-Quin team emerged for the second period and despite Madden again opening the scoring with a point, they started to claw back the deficit.

A goal through Marcas Fitzpatrick followed by a point allied to further singles from James Moloney, Sean Considine and Isaac Hassett had them only trailing 1-11 to 1-8, the further scores for Scariff-Ogonnelloe again coming from Madden and a Paul Rodgers free.

The Clooney-Quin half-back line of Kevin McCarthy, Daire Condon and Eli Deegan were on top and the launchpad for many attacks.

With the water break looming, Luke Madden pounced for a poacher’s goal which settled the nerves of the winners at 2-11 to 1-8.

Buoyed by that goal, substitute Donnacha McKenna grabbed another goal on the restart while Rodgers (2) and Liam Tuohy rounded off a powerful display before Sean Considine scored a consolation goal for Clooney-Quin.

Best for Scariff-Ogonnelloe on the day were Sean Maher, Michael Vaughan, Adam McNamara, Paul Rodgers, James Foley, Liam Tuohy and Oisin Madden while Daire Condon, Eli Deegan, Kevin McCarthy, Isaac Hassett, Dermot O’Halloran, Marcas Fitzpatrick and Sean Considine were best for Clooney-Quin.
