AN all-Cork final in the Dr Harty Cup remains very much on the cards after yesterday’s four quarter-finals of the competition.

Two of the three Cork participants, Midleton CBS and Christians made it through to the last four and are on the opposite side of the draw.

The third Cork school, St Colman’s Fermoy lost out to De La Salle Waterford who will now meet Midleton CBS in one of the two semi-finals.

In the second semi-final, CBC will meet the winners of Thurles CBS and John the Baptist CS Hospital who drew in an epic encounter after two periods of extra-time failed to separate them.

Midleton CBS were hugely impressive winners over Our Lady’s Templemore, running in seven goals in a very comprehensive win with Jason Hankard and Kian Farmer securing a brace apiece.

CBC, however, had to secure a last-gasp goal from Declan Hanlon against Nenagh CBS to progress to the last four for the second year running.
