EIGHT POINTS FROM Adrian Ryan and five from Tipp senior star Gearoid were enough to see Templederry into the Tipperary SHC semi-finals after a seven point win over Burgess in Semple Stadium this afternoon.

Despite Stephen Murray accumulating 13 points on his own for Burgess, they were unable to live with their North Tipp rivals who scored 12 of their 14 first half points from play to lead 0-14 to 0-7 at the break.

Thanks to Murray, the green and gold fought back within two points at the start of the second half but that was as close as they came to Templederry with the Ryan cousins contributing more than half of their points total.

In today’s late throw-in, Thurles Sarsfields still have a chance of winning a third county title in five years but needed extra-time to overcome Nenagh Eire Og.

After an uninspiring first half, Nenagh led by three points at at the break, 0-7 to 0-4. The quality improved after half-time and though Thurles led by two at the end of the sixty, an injury-time Tommy Heffernan point sent the game to extra-time.

Despite trailing by three points at one stage in extra-time, Thurles Sarsfields and Aidan McCormack – who missed a free that could have won the game in normal time – hit the winning score in the 80th minute to secure the one-point win.

Yesterday’s pair of Tipperary SHC quarter-finals saw defending champions Loughmore-Castleiney claim a narrow one point win over Clonoulty-Rossmore while Eoin Kelly hit 2-7 to help Mullinahone beat Kildangan in extra-time.
