Final score Tipperary 0-28 (28 pts) – Clare 3-16 (22 pts)

Current Liam MacCarthy Cup holders Tipperary recorded a 6 points win over Clare yesterday with a superb exhibition of open play point scoring from John McGrath, rightly declared “Man-of-the-Match”.

Tipperary were ahead by six points up to midway in the first half, but Clare refused to concede; fighting back to draw level, scoring two goals (6 pts).

Nevertheless, Tipperary were leading 0-16 to 2-5 (11 pts) at half-time, after out-scoring Clare by 5 points in the closing ten minutes.

Tipperary started the second half showing both character and determination, but despite their efforts, saw their two-goal margin cut away to just one point within minutes of the finish.

Holding their determination however Tipperary responded with a further five points, before Clare substitute Cathal Mcinerney rifled home a further late goal.

During the match, superb marksman John McGrath was on target, a magnificent six times, operating from open play, while Seamus Callanan struck home 4 points from open play and a further 3 from frees.  Noel McGrath and John O’Dwyer each contributed 4 points, with Patrick Maher contributing 2 points, while M. Breen, S. Kennedy, B. Maher, S. O’Brien, and J. Forde all added one each.
