Munster club IHC: Fr O'Neill's and Ballysaggart advance

November 04, 2019

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

Fr O'Neill's (Cork) and Ballysaggart (Waterford) are both through to Sunday's Munster club IHC semi-finals following their respective victories over Blackrock (Limerick) and Causeway (Kerry).

Extra-time was required at Kilfinane where Fr O'Neill's defeated the hosts after a dramatic encounter which finished 2-19 to 1-20 after 80 minutes in difficult conditions yesterday.

Gavin O’Loughlin's 64th minute penalty for Blackrock left the sides deadlocked (2-12 to 1-15) at full-time.

But Fr O'Neill's recovered in extra-time and scores from Declan Dalton and Tomas Millerick helped them eke out victory.

Their reward is a home clash with Clare champions Broadford.

Also yesterday, Ballysaggart overcame county senior champions Causeway at Fraher Field in Dungarvan, 2-14 to 0-15.

Backboned by the Bennett brothers, Stephen, Shane and Kieran, Ballysaggart will now face Sean Treacys of Tipperary at the same venue this weekend.
