Kilmaley and Newmarket face relegation final

Shock results continued in the Clare senior hurling championship this Saturday afternoon as Tulla secured a quarter final spot while both Inagh-Kilnamona and Whitegate secured their senior status for next season when they overcame Newmarket and Kilmaley respectively. All three winners went into their games this Saturday afternoon as underdogs. Having two players sent off and the loss of a further two to injury proved too much for a fancied OCallaghans Mills who had to give best to their neighbours Tulla at Cusack Park. Tulla had a dream start with a superb goal from Darragh Corry in the opening minute but a like score from Michael McGrath in the eighth minute had the Mills in front and they went on to open a three point gap by the end of the opening quarter.

Shocks galore as title race begins

Every championship produces shock results and so it was as the race for the Canon Hamilton trophy got under way in Clare. Unbeaten in league and championship last season, champions Sixmilebridge were rocked when beaten by the minimum margin by Crusheen at Cusack Park this Saturday evening. These teams have produced some very close contests in recent years and this proved to be no different. Sixmilebridge looked to be edging in front when they went two points clear with ten minutes to play but four unanswered points from Crusheen proved decisive. One point separated the teams at the end of normal time with two minutes of ‘injury time’ to play. The champions piled on the pressure but Donal Tuohy in the Crusheen goal made a great save from Alan Mulready at the expense of a ’65. Niall Gilligan was adament that his effort was between the uprights but the umpires had no doubt that it was wide. It left the final …
