A DRAMATIC CLASH in the Waterford senior hurling championship today saw Austin Gleeson shown a red card and Tony Browne hit the net but the scoring heroics of Patrick Curran won the day.

Curran inspired 2012 beaten finalists Dungarvan to a 1-22 to 2-16 win over 2014 beaten finalists Mount Sion in a Round 3 Group 2 clash.

Gleeson and Dungarvan’s Colm Curran were sent-off just before half-time after a mass brawl but Mount Sion were in front 0-10 to 0-7 at the break.

The dismissal won’t interfere with Gleeson’s inter-county commitments next month as he’ll be involved in Waterford’s Munster senior final against Tipperary on 12 July and Waterford’s Munster U21 semi-final against Clare on 16 July.

Tony Browne, a selector on Waterford’s U21 team that crushed past Cork last week, hit the net early in the second-half and Mount Sion went in front 2-11 to 0-10.

However Dungarvan fought back with Curran, the scoring star on that Deise U21 team when he shot 0-12 against the Rebels, leading the way as he finished with 1-8. Ex-Waterford senior Eoin McGrath was also dismissed late on for a second yellow card offence.
