Our senior hurlers progressed to the division 1 county hurling league final with a solid victory over Roscrea in the semi final last Sunday. 12 first half wides from us saw Roscrea take a 2 point lead into the break but a Loughlin Ryan goal right at the start of the second half put us into the lead. Roscrea responded well and midway through the second half they still maintained a 2 point lead, even though they were reduced to 14 men. The final quarter was all Upperchurch though, reeling off 11 points to Roscrea’s 2 to leave the final score 1-18 to 0-14. We now face local rivals Drom & Inch in the league final which will be played next Wednesday at 7:30pm in Templetouhy. All support is welcome as we look to claim county silverware.

Weekly Club Notes – April 12th 2019

SENIOR HURLING
Last weekend saw us suffer defeat in the opening round of the county championship against Nenagh Eire Óg. In an even first half a goal from Loughlin Ryan saw us going into the break 1 point in arrears. Midway through the second half both sides were level at 1-14 apiece but it was Nenagh who did all the scoring from then on notching 1-7 to 0-1 to claim victory. Our next championship game will be later this summer after Tipperary’s intercounty campaign. Full match report can be found at this link. https://www.tipperarylive.ie/news/sport/374504/tipperary-shc-nenagh-eire-og-overcome-a-slow-start-to-win-convincingly-against-upperchurch-drombane.html
