Tipperary’s Adam Daly makes the Banner minors pay penalty in shoot-out drama

Adam Daly proved the hero as his penalty finally cemented Tipperary’s first Munster minor hurling title in four years in an unprecedented and dramatic finish in the TUS Gaelic Grounds last night.

Following a compelling 80-minute saga that was level on 11 occasions, it had to take a penalty shoot-out to finally separate these evenly-matched neighbours.

Much like their senior footballing provincial woes against Limerick less than a fortnight earlier, Clare failed to hit the net with their three whereas Tipperary were clinically efficient as goalkeeper Eoin Horgan, Paddy McCormack and Daly found the net to end a truly dramatic night in Limerick.

With only a point separating the sides at half-time, at 0-10 to 0-9, in Tipperary’s favour, Clare, led by Jack O’Neill, came storming back into the contest on the restart with eight of the next 11 scores to soar 0-17 to 0-13 clear entering the final quarter.

With Tipperary also reduced to 14 following two swift bookings for captain Sam O’Farrell, it seemed advantage Clare as they carried that four-point cushion into the final 10 minutes.

Tipperary would re-ignite their challenge with a major impact from the bench as first a Sam Rowan equalising goal was bolstered by points from Darragh McCarthy and Cathal English to power in front in injury-time.

It was Clare replacement Dylan Keane Hayes who popped up with the most critical score however as his last-gasp point from the right wing forced extra-time at 1-18 to 0-21.

Still deadlocked by the midway mark in the additional periods, a brace of Oisín Whelan placed balls nudged Clare two in front, only to be reeled in once more as a Jack O’Callaghan point was surpassed by a pressured levelling 50-metre free from Paddy McCormack at the death to ensure a placed ball shoot-out.

With the spotlight firmly on, there was no doubting the victors when it came to penalties as Clare had two of their three stopped by goalkeeper Horgan, whereas Tipperary were unerring on their way to a record 41st Munster minor crown.

Scorers – Tipperary: D Corbett 0-5 (4f); D McCarthy (1f), P McCormack (1f) 0-3 each; S Rowan 1-0; S O’Farrell, C Foley, J Egan, J O’Callaghan 0-2 each, C Martin, C English, J Ormond 0-1 each. Clare: O Whelan 0-9 (8f, 1’65); J O’Neill, J Organ 0-4 each; C Neylon, M Collins 0-2 each; J Hegarty, P Ó Sé, S Scanlan, D Keane Hayes 0-1 each.
