Thurles Sarsfields 7-16 Loughmore/Castleiney 2-13

Pa Bourke scored an incredible 6-3 as Thurles Sarsfields hammered Loughmore/Castleiney in the Mid Tipp Senior Hurling Final at Templemore on Sunday evening.

Bourke scored three goals from 20 metre frees inside the first 10 minutes to put the Thurles team ahead by 3-4 to 0-2.

He scored two more before half-time to leave Sarsfields in front by 5-7 to 1-5 at the break.

Bourke’s sixth goal in the 46th minute all but ended Loughmore’s hopes of a comeback, and despite two goals from county player Noel McGrath (one in each half) they had no answer to Sarsfields’ dominance.
