Sexton and O’Brien keep Bruree alive

Bruree 1-9 Knockainey 1-7

Their reward is a meeting with Croom on Sunday.

Bruree made a promising start with two pointed frees from Seamus O’Connell but Knockainey seized the initiative with a tenth minute goal from Pat Kirby.

The sides traded points until Bruree made the breakthrough on 26 minutes, when James O’Brien beat goalkeeper, Kevin Madden to bring the sides level at 1-5 each.

The second half was a major disappointment with only six points scored. James O’Brien powered Bruree ahead but Donnacha O’Brien kept Knockainey in the chase and the teams were level once more at 1-7 each before James O’Brien and Conor O’Brien settled the issue.
