Red Card For Low Blow Kick As Galway Bow Out Of U21 Championship

Red Card For Low Blow Kick As Galway Bow Out Of U21 Championship
By Maurice Brosnan Updated

Tipperary secured a deserved 3-17 to 1-17 victory over Galway in their Bord Gais Energy U21 Championship semi-final tonight in a game that saw three red cards.

It means Tipperary are set for a re-match against Munster champions Cork, who defeated Wexford in the other semi-final. Galway will be disappointed with the manner of their defeat particularly the finish which saw a late comeback falter as Cian Salmon was sent off for a kick. Yet there were encouraging signs for the Tribesmen, particularly in the performance of Fintan Burke, senior captain David's younger cousin.

Galway trailed by ten points at one point having lost Brian Concannon to a first-half red card. However,  Tipperary's Mark Kehoe was sent off for a collision with the goalkeeper and approaching the dying minutes a Jack Canning goal brought Tony Ward's side within four before a Tom Monaghan point meant just a goal separated the sides.

Galway were reduced to 13 men with five minutes of additional time left after Salmon reacted to being fouled by kicking out.

A Ger Browne goal then ensured it was a comfortable ending for Tipperary, who will look to avenge their 13-point Munster final defeat next time out.

The result means we now know the makeup of all three hurling All-Ireland finals. Galway will play Kilkenny in the minor final, Tipperary will play Cork at U21 and Galway will play Limerick in the senior final.
