There was disappointment for Ballinameela in the Munster Junior Hurling Final.
The Waterford side suffered a 6 point defeat at the hands of Cork Champions Cloughduv.
9 wides in the opening half proved costly for Ballinameela who trailed by two points at the break.
Brendan Phelan did reduce the deficit at the start of the second half but this was as close as it got for Ballinameela
Cloughduv took over and dominated the majority of the second half, corner forward Brian Verling hit 0-9 (7 frees) with Mark Verling, Andrew Cronin and Joe Ryan also on target
Davy Phelan and Paul Curran hit late points but Cloughduv weren’t to be denied as they claimed a six points win
Journey is over for a brave @Ballinameela – Cloughduv deservedly crowned Munster Junior hurling Champions this afternoon, full time; Cloughduv 0-17 Ballinameela 0-11 Brian Verling shot 9 points for the Cork champions #GAA
