Our Under 17 hurlers had a great outing last Monday night against Ballina. Ballina started brighter and for much of the first half dictated the game. Nenagh Éire Óg backs and goalkeeper were resolute and managed to prevent Ballina racing into a bigger lead than they had at half time. By midway through the second half, the boys drew level. Heading into injury time Ballina led by two points but Nenagh Éire Óg were awarded a last minute free, Tipperary county minor captain Sam O'Farrell stepped up and rifled it to the back of the net. With time just up, a one point victory was a very satisfactory outcome to an entertaining match. We have now drawn Newport in the quarter final to be played on Wednesday 31st Aug in Ballina. U17 training continues every Monday and Wednesday at 6.50 pm unless there is a match.
