The Lorrha Rovers full forward line contrived to match the total scored by Moneygall/Clonakenny as they claimed the first ever North Tipperary Minor Hurling League Division 2 title last Wednesday.

In an entertaining game which saw eight of the eleven goals scored by the 39th minute when Lorrha Rovers led 5-21 to 3-7. The subs bench became very busy and Lorrha Rovers appeared to take the foot of the pedal and began leaking goals –three in fact which could have being much more but for three great saves by keeper Ruain O’Meara.

Michael Egan was top scorer 3-5 as Michael Houlihan and Kieran Clarke contrived to make life difficult for Moneygall/Clonakenny. If that was not enough the very accurate Colm Fogarty scored 0-10 with the Tipp minor scoring three points from play in a great performance.
