Super sub Mikie Sheehan is Glanworth hero in victory over Kilshanning

Cork IFC quarter-final: Glanworth 1-13 Kilshannig 1-12 

Super-sub Mikie Sheehan was the Glanworth hero as his late point broke Kilshanning hearts in this Cork IFC quarter-final thriller in Killavullen on Saturday.

The sides were level on six occasions before Sheehan nailed the winner to seal a last-four date with Rockchapel.

The sides went score for score in the opening quarter before Killian O'Hanlon edged Kilshanning ahead (0-4 to 0-3) at the water break and they extended that to 0-6 to 0-4 by the 21st minute before Glanworth's scorer in chief Shane O'Riordan and Kieran Twomey swopped points. 

Glanworth's chances were boosted by a Sean Finn goal to nudge them ahead but Twomey had the final say to leave the side deadlocked at the break (1-5 to 0-8). 

The momentum looked to have turned Kilshannig's way when an O'Hanlon goal pushed them 1-10 to 1-9 but a Barry O'Shea point with 11 minutes remaining proved their last score. 

Glanworth finished in style as efforts from O'Riordan (2) and Sheehan snatched win.
