Silvermines end long wait for league success

Silvermines - Junior B League Winners

Silvermines 2-12

Lorrha 0-14


Report: Liam Hogan


Two opportune goals, one in each half, were the difference as Silvermines claimed their third Nirth Tipperary Junior 'B' Hurling League title and first in 22 years following a four point victory over Lorrha last Friday evening.

Silvermines were the better side and looked well on the way to victory with a seven point lead approaching the three quarter mark but seemed to lose their way in the last quarter as Lorrha fought back to within three before a Mark Daniels point in injury time sealed the win.

The opening minutes were frantic as the teams shared four points in two and a half minutes. Lorrha took the lead in the opening minute following a free by Ciaran Duggan score before Colin O’Brien levelled. With no let up, Barry Moran caught James Dunne’s puckout and with Conor O’ Sullivan in support, the wing back edged Lorrha in front. The lead was short lived though as Mark Daniels had the 'Mines level for a second time.

Two minutes later, Silvermines took the initiative when Dan Ryan had the ball in the net to give his side a 1-2 to 0-2 lead. After Ryan’s goal, Lorrha responded with Ciaran Duggan’s pointed free before Daniel Keogh replied with a point from play with a goal a possibility.
