KANTURK went on a scoring spree in this Co Op Super Stores Senior AHC clash at Castlelyons to set up a quarter-final against Bandon.

While the exchanges were close early on, Aidan Walsh was in great form for Kanturk and they led 0-6 to 0-4 at the first water break. Daniel Landers pointed for Killeagh but the winners impressed in the half-forward line where James Fitzpatrick and Lorcan O'Neill did very well.
