Effin book semi-final berth with four teams level on points in race for knockouts | PIHC Round Six Recap

In front of the Limerick GAA TV cameras, Effin moved clear at the top of the PIHC table with a win over Bruff that secures their place in the last four.

The race to earn promotion from the Limerick Premier Intermediate Hurling Championship is down to five teams after a hectic penultimate round of action.

The standout tie saw Effin see off Bruff to become the first team to book their place in the semi-finals.

Elsewhere, wins for Newcastle West, Dromin Athlacca and Blackrock moved them all onto eight points, level with Bruff.

It means the aforementioned four will all head into the final round seeking a win to guarantee their semi-final berth.

In front of the Limerick GAA TV cameras, Effin moved clear at the top of the PIHC table with a 2-17 to 1-13 win over Bruff.

Rory O’Connor and Frank Hehir bagged the all important goals for Effin with Patrick O’Donovan into double figures for points.

Earlier on Saturday afternoon, Blackrock hit the net five times to get past Cappamore to move into joint second in the table. The result also sees Cappamore relegated just two seasons after they reached the final in the grade.

Newcastle West maintained their winning run in the championship with their five point win over Na Piarsaigh eliminating last years intermediate winners. They take on Bruff in the final round where the winner will be guaranteed to progress.

In the other game in the group, Dromin Athlacca gained a slender victory against Glenroe that ends their hopes of progression with DA to face already eliminated Na Piarsaigh in the concluding round.
