Kennedy seals victory for Templemore


Templemore 2-5 Midleton 0-10:Brian Kennedy’s point in the second minute of stoppage time sent Templemore CBS through to the semi-finals of the Dr Harty Cup at the expense of Midleton CBS yesterday.

Kennedy’s late score set up a semi-final tie with 2010 and 2011 competition winners Ardscoil Rís.

A quarter-final played out in dreadful weather conditions in Cahir looked set for extra-time before Kennedy’s decisive intervention.

Cork outfit Midleton trailed by 0-6 to 2-3 at half-time as John McGrath and Tommy Nolan scored first -half goals for Templemore.

But inspired by Joe Mellerick’s proficiency from placed balls, Midleton worked their way back into contention before they were undone by Kennedy’s winner from the right touchline.
