Tipperary 2-13 Dublin 2-9

Tipperary 2-13 Dublin 2-9

Former champions Tipperary came good after half-time to register a second successive victory in the 2008 Gala All-Ireland senior camogie championship.

Trailing by 2-6 to 2-5 at the break against spirited Dublin at Semple Stadium this evening, Tipp reeled off six unanswered scores after half-time to move into a matchwinning five-point lead.

Tipp outscored the visitors 0-8 to 0-3 in the second half to maintain their 100% record in this year’s Gala championship.

Dublin stood toe to toe with their opponents in a tight first half and responded to Claire Grogan’s eighth-minute goal for Tipperary as Ciara Burgess found the net just four minutes later.

Tipp’s second goal came courtesy of Therese Shortt after 16 minutes but Dublin refused to buckle and responded in kind through Jolene Hoary as the impressive Burgess turned provider ten minutes before half-time.

With two wins from two, five-times champions Tipperary are looking good at this early stage for a place in the semi-final while Dublin remain pointless from two outings.

Tipperary scorers: C Grogan 1-2 (0-1 45), E Hayden & C Hennessy 0-3 each, T Shortt 1-0, M Morrissey 0-2, P Fogarty, J Ryan & M Luttrell 0-1 each.

Dublin scorers: C Burgess 1-2, J Hoary 1-1, A Jordan 0-3, F Corcoran, S Ryan & C Lucey (f) 0-1 each.
