The Tipperary minor hurlers suffered their first defeat of the year last night.

James Woodlock’s side were beaten by Clare in FBD Semple Stadium on a full time score of 4-11 to 0-19.

Three first half goals saw the visitors lead by as much as eight points but the Premier had the game level on 45 minutes.

Clare’s fourth goal, a hattrick for Liam Murphy, came in the final quarter and was key for the Banner to secure the win.

Next up for Tipp is a trip to the Gaelic Grounds to play Limerick next Thursday, which will be the final game of the round robin stage.
