 St. Odhran's/Silvermines 2-7

Gortnahoe/Glengoole 0-3

St. Odhran’s Silvermines are the CV Financial Junior B County Tipperary Champions after a very one-sided Final at Sean Treacy Park, on Saturday November 13th last.

Prior to the game a minute’s silence was observed as a mark of respect to the tragic passing of Martin Burke a cousin of the Gortnahoe goalkeeper Kaylyn Burke.

Silvermines were quickest off the mark with the game barely alive when Ellen Cunneen snuck in for a goal. She quickly added a point to put her side 1-1 to Gortnahoe’s 0-0. Driving runs by the Cunneen twins Niamh and Ellen had the Gortnahoe defence under severe pressure. At the back Silvermines were tight and only allowed Gortnahoe register a single point in this opening half from Trisha Holohan in the tenth minute.

Silvermines should probably have had more on the board however the goal keeping heroics of Kaylyn Burke kept her side in it. Despite this St. Odhrans/Silvermines still had a strong lead at the break and were in front on a score line of 1-4 to Gortnahoe/Glengoole 0-1.

After the break Gortnahoe started brightly with a point from Lorraine Holohan. However Silvermines were the stronger of the sides and were never going to allow their lead to slip. The game was put beyond doubt with a Ciara Grace goal in the forty fourth minute.

The Silvermines forward got in on the end of a Miriam Murphy pass to send it to the back of the net. Ciara Ryan added her name to the score sheet shortly afterwards to put Silvermines 2-6 to Gortnahoe’s 0-2 with just fourteen minutes on the clock.

A further point from Ellen Cunneen from a free and one from Aisling Langton at the opposite end wrapped up the scoring for the day. A fantastic achievement for St. Odhrans/Silvermines who in 2022 will play in the Junior A competition.

St. Odhrans/Silvermines: Aoife Ryan; Ellen Maher, Annie Ryan, Caoimhe Carey; Miriam Murphy, Maria Moroney, Anna Stapleton; Niamh Cunneen (0-3), Sarah Cunneen; Nessa Murray, Sarah Madden, Ciara Ryan (0-1); Cliona Kennedy , Ellen Cunneen(1-3), Ciara Grace (1-0).
