Laois SHC: Penalty Drama Sees Clough/Ballacolla Dethroned

Laois will see new senior hurling champions for the first time in three years.

It took 60 minutes plus injury time, extra time, and a huge number of missed penalties, but Clough/Ballcolla have been de-throned as champions of Laois.

Camross booked their place in this year's senior hurling championship final with a remarkable comeback victory against the three time defending title holders.

The runners up in last year's competition trailed Clough/Ballacolla by 9 points at half-time, second half goals from Tom Cuddy, and Mark Dowling brought Camross back in to the contest.

Extra-time led to penalties, with the score at 2-1, Andrew Collier had the chance to win it for Camross, if he missed, Ronan Broderick had to score for Clough/Ballacolla, Jack Nolan called the action for Midlands 103:
