Kilcormac/Killoughey advance

Kilcormac/Killoughey (Offaly)1-18 Camross (Laois) 1-10

Danny Owens’ side looked sluggish in the opening stages, but sprung to life in the second-half to run out deserving winners.

Camross enjoyed a bright start, with Zane Keenan and Aaron Moore among the scorers as they lead 0-6 to 0-3 after 15 minutes.

Kilcormac found form after that, however, and led by Ciarán Slevin the Offaly kingpins stormed back to lead 0-10 to 0-8 at half time.

They clicked into a higher gear after the interval, hitting five points without reply, before James Gorman bundled the ball over the line for the goal which all but ended the game as a contest.

Camross had a late goal as a consolation, through Tomás Burke, but Kilcormac were never threatened and ran out convincing winners.
