Quarter-Finalists confirmed in Intermediate and Junior Hurling Championships

The group stages of the Limerick Intermediate and Junior Championships came to a close over the weekend.

There are six teams remaining in the hunt for Intermediate hurling honours and eight in Junior A after a curtain was drawn on the group stages of both over the weekend.

Both championships will take a break until the weekend of October 8/9 prior to the quarter-finals that weekend.

Intermediate Championship

Table toppers Na Piarsaigh and Croagh Kilfinny were assured of their semi-final spots heading into the final round of games after maintaining a 100% record through four contests.

Both made it five on the spin in the group stages as CK defeated Knockaderry 0-22 to 0-16 while Nap were four point victors over Bruree.

In group one, despite defeat to Na Piarsaigh, Bruree finished second in the table to secure their quarter-final spot. They are joined in that regard by Croom as their victory over Feohanagh saw them leapfrog the West side and into third. Murroe Boher’s victory over Caherline resigns them to the relegation final in their first year back in the grade.

In group two, Granagh Ballingarry’s 0-30 to 2-16 win over Kilmallock sealed their place in second in the table while also ensuring the Balbec will contest the relegation final. Pallasgreen’s round one victory over Knockaderry has proven crucial as they finished in third ahead of the West team on head to head. In round five Pallasgreen drew level on points with Knockaderry with a win over Hospital Herbertstown as the West team fell to Croagh Kilfinny.

Eight teams remain in the battle for Junior A honours with the quarter-finals set.

In group one, Crecora Manister maintained their unbeaten record to make it four wins from five and top the group after besting Templeglantine 2-15 to 2-12. Drom Broadford took advantage of Templeglantine’s defeat to move ahead of their West rivals as their victory over Staker Wallace was enough to move into second. Blackrock finished last with five successive losses.

Castletown Ballyagran’s 2-16 to 0-14 win over Killeedy in round five saw them usurp the West team at the top of group two. Killedy had booked their place in the knockout stages prior to throw in as they now face Crecora Manister in the quarters. Ahane will play in the relegation quarter-finals after losing each of their games.

St Kierans made it five wins from five as they topped group three. Doon’s 1-14 to 0-13 win over Feenagh Kilmeedy saw them usurp the West outfit and book their quarter-final spot. Ballybrown’s walkover defeat to Askeaton puts them into the relegation semi-final.

Similarly, Patrickswell maintained their 100% record with a comprehensive win over Rathkeale. Kilteely Dromkeen’s 2-15 to 1-16 win over Tournafulla saw them draw level on points with the West side and earn second spot on H2H. Garryspillane’s final day victory over Old Christians didn’t prevent them from finishing rooted to the foot of the table.
