Chorca Dhuibhne turn tables on Macroom

POBALSCOIL Chorca Dhuibhne advanced to a second successive Corn Ui Mhuiri semi-final after a five point win over their conquerors last year, De La Salle Macroom in Killarney.

Shading a tight first-half 0-4 to 0-3, Pobalscoil clicked into a higher gear in the second-half, inspired by substitute Tomás Ó Caomhanaigh as well as four points from wing-forward Eanna Ó Conchuir.

De La Salle were too reliant on full-forward Ben Shorten (he kicked five points) while a late save by Pobalscoil keeper Gavin Ó Curráin from Darren Kelly denied last year’s runners-up hope of a grandstand finish.

Scorers: Pobalscoil: E Ó Conchuir (0-4), S Ó Diomsaigh (0-2, 1 free), Dara Ó Se (0-2), A Ó Raoill (0-1, ‘45’), R Ó Beaglaoich (0-1) and J Ó Súilleabhain (0-1)

De la Salle: B Shorten (0-5, 4 frees) and D Creed (0-1)
