St Brendan's advance

St. Brendan’s (Ardfert) qualified for the semi-finals of this year’s AIB Kerry county senior hurling championship when they defeated a gallant Abbeydorney side 4-11 to 3-11 at the Austin Stack Park, Tralee, last evening.

St. Brendan’s laid the foundations for victory with a superb first half display that saw them lead at the interval 3-6 to 1-4 with goals coming from Sean Flaherty, John Egan and Brendan Blackwell.

Early in the second half, St. Brendan’s led by 0-11 but Abbeydorney rallied and full forward Tony Maunsell cracked home two goals and some fine points from Brian O’Donovan and Ivan McCarthy narrowed the gap to just a goal but time ran out and Abbeydorney’s fragility in defence in the first half cost them victory.

Scorers: St. Brendan’s: J. Egan 1-6, S. Flaherty 1-2, B. Blackwell, S. Griffin 1-0 each, E. Corridon, J. Best, D. Wallace 0-1 each. Abbeydorney; T. Maunsell 3-0, B. O’Donovan, I. McCarthy 0-5 each, M. Casey 0-1.
