Young Munster earn Limerick’s only Munster Senior Cup semi-final spot

A decent crowd turned out at Thomond Park on Culture night to watch Young Munster and Shannon in a local derby.

In a very competitive game, both sides found themselves in a 6-6 deadlock at the break. But it would be Young Munster that found an extra in the second half, sealing a semi-final place with a 23-17 victory in the end.

Meanwhile, across at the University of Limerick 4G pitch, it was much less of a scoring affair when UL Bohieman took on Cashel. What transpired would be more of a chess match between the pair, with Cashel getting the better of the Limerick side, a 10-7 win sends the Tipperary team into the semi-final stage.

Saturday saw Garryowen FC narrowly lose in a tight game to Cork Consistiuion at Temple Hill. 9-7 was enough to send the Cork side into another Bank of Ireland Senior Challenge Cup semi-final.

Highfield beat UCC at the Mardyke Arena by just one point, 30-29 and will face Cork Constitution next, while Young Munster will take on Cashel in their semi-final clash.
