Kilmallock and Patrickswell made light work of their Limerick SHC quarter final clashes over the weekend as they accounted for Murroe Boher and South Liberties respectively to reach the final four. The winners dominate our team of the week where there was a number of standout performers.
Barry Hennessy (Kilmallock)
The Kilmallock Goalkeeper was the only net minder to keep a clean sheet on Sunday. Nickie Quaids understudy was also very accurate with his puckouts, launching a number of attacks in the one sided affair.
Aaron Costello (Kilmallock)
The corner back was in imperious form on Sunday in defence and even chipped in with a score in the second half. Will surely be on John Kiely’s radar after another great performance.
Patrick Carroll (South Liberties)
Depsite a heavy loss at the hands of Patrickswell, Carroll was one of his sides standout performers and more than held his own, with his side conceding a solitary goal.
Josh Considine (Patrickswell)
The young man was moved from attack to his more natural position in defence and excelled as a result. Also part of the Patrickswell team who are into a minor premier final.
Mark Carmody (Patrickswell)
Occupied a deeper position to negate the threat of Barry Nash and Brian Ryan. Showed his class throughout with excellent reading of the game and was clever in his distribution. Arguably the player of the weekend.
Gavin O’Mahony (Kilmallock)
Slotted in at centre back for the Balbec and demonstarted his wealth of experience as the anchor of a brillianr defence. Chipped in with a couple of trademark long range frees.
Seanie O’Brien (Patrickswell)
Hasn’t missed a step since his return from injury. Excellent throughout the game and was even afforded a rest late on with his side well on top.
Jake Mulcahy (Kilmallock)
Continued his impressive form this season rounding of a fine individual performance with a goal late on to add to his points tally.
Cian Lynch (Patrickswell)
Despite finding himself in various positions throughout the pitch, including corner forward, Lynch was consistently classy and clever in all he did
Phelim O’Reilly (Kilmallock)
Was a constant attacking outlet for Kilmallock on the wing, linking well with his half backs. Notched a number of scores also.
Brian Ryan (South Liberties)
Made the most of the little possession he received in the game, with a goal late on well deserved. Was deadly accurate from frees as Liberties started the game on top.
Calvin Carroll (Patrickswell)
An excellent showing from the youngster. Defied his age with an all action performance. Won plenty of possession and added 0-3 as his side eased to victory.
Graeme Mulcahy (Kilmallock)
Was his typical self without needing to exert too much energy. Na Piarsaigh will need a plan to counteract his considerable influence on this Kilmallock team.
Aaron Gillane (Patrickswell)
When the Well found themselves under pressure early on, Gillane was perfect from placed balls. Drifted out the field when needed to assist his team. Showed his class.
Pat Tobin (Murroe Boher)
On a tough day for his side, Tobin led a short resistance before the half, scoring his sides opening two points and added a couple more during his time on the field.
