Munster club IHC: Fr O'Neills and Ballysaggart for final

Fr O'Neill's star Declan Dalton and Stephen Bennett of Ballysaggart.

Fr O'Neills and Ballysaggart will face off in the Munster club IHC final on Sunday, 24 November.

Declan Dalton fired 1-12 and Billy Dunne bagged a brace of goals as Fr O'Neills recorded an impressive 17-point victory over Clare champions Broadford in Midleton yesterday. 

Dalton, who was a key player for East Cork divisional side Imokilly in their recent county SHC three-in-a-row success, actually outscored Broadford with the scoreboard reading, 3-22 to 0-14, at the full-time whistle.

It wasn't as straight-forward for Waterford side Ballysaggart who survived a late onslaught from Sean Treacy's of Tipperary to hold on for a 0-15 to 1-11 win in yesterday's other semi-final at Fraher Field.

Trailing by 0-15 to 0-11 in injury-time, Sean Treacy's plundered a goal and almost forced extra-time when a late point effort fell short.

The Bennett brothers, Stephen, Shane and Kieran, contributed all bar one of Ballysaggart's scores, with Stephen leading the way with 0-9.
