Tipp hold on as Clare leave effort too late

Tipperary 0-12 Clare 0-10
Though they scored the last four points, Clare left their effort too late to deny Tipperary victory in the Darcy Cup (Munster U17 football) final at Limerick Gaelic Grounds last night.

Clare had the opening point but managed only two more in a Tipperary dominated first half at the end of which they led by 0-7 to 0-3.

With nine minutes remaining Tipperary led by double scores, 0-12 to 0-6, but then came the amazing Clare comeback but it proved too little too late.

Keelan Sexton scored six points for Clare, two from frees.
