Three out of four Limerick Junior A Hurling Semi-Final spots decided with one quarter to be played

St Kierans and Kilteely Dromkeen do battle in the final Limerick JAHC quarter-final this Tuesday.

The race for the Limerick Junior A Hurling title is down to five with three of the four quarter-finals played over the weekend.

Drom Broadford, Killeedy and Patrickswell successfully navigated their quarter-final ties with St Kierans and Kilteely Dromkeen to meet at the same stage on Tuesday evening.

It was Patrickswell that were first to earn their place in the semi-finals as they maintained their perfect start to the season with a 2-11 to 2-10 win over Doon.

However, it looked like a Doon victory until a late late rally saw the ‘Well pounce for a pair of injury time goals to steal the result.

The East outfit led 1-6 to 0-7 at the break, which they had extended to five points headed into injury time before Pa Mann and Josh Carey struck for goal.

Dromcollogher Broadford were next to etch their name into the last four as they secured a 0-22 to 2-13 win over Castletown Ballyagran.

In a nip and tuck opening quarter, the teams were level for the fifth time as Derry McCarthy made it 0-6 apiece.

The next four scores came from the West Limerick outfit as they put daylight between the teams for the first time. This spree helped them into a 0-12 to 0-10 lead at the break.

A third quarter surge heightened this gap and Drom didn’t look back, moving into a six point advantage with twenty to play. This was extended as they hit ten of the first twelve points of the half.

Castletown Ballyagran hit the net on 53 minutes to reduce the deficit to seven and four minutes later they raised their second green flag.

But they wouldn’t score again as Keith Lacey had the final say with a free to see Drom into the final four.

On Sunday afternoon, the Bog Garden attendance was treated to a cracker as penalties was needed to separate Killeedy and Crecora Manister with the West side prevailing 5-4.

At the end of normal time, the sides remained deadlocked at 2-8 to 0-14. This became 2-13 to 0-19 after the extra twenty minutes sending the game to penalties where Killeedy held their nerve to secure the win.

A pair of first half goals gave Killeedy the initiative as they led 2-5 to 0-4 at the interval. Crecora eventually drew level in the first minute of injury time but Killeedy regained the lead. Crecora did find the leveller and took the lead for the first time in extra-time, moving two clear before the turn of ends.

This was extended to three but Killeedy found the equaliser late on in the half to send the game to penalties.

On Tuesday evening, one of St Kierans or Kilteely Dromkeen will complete the semi-final line up with that game throwing in at 7.30pm in Doon.
