BLARNEY maintained their interest in the County Premier U21 Hurling Championship with a resounding victory over Carrigaline on a bumper night for local GAA matches.

The mid-Cork side, with Rebel ace Mark Coleman wearing the number 11 jersey, kicked on in the second half of their backdoor clash to record a 2-20 to 1-14 win.

Cork U17 All-Ireland winner Declan Hanlon, who was also a member of the county minor panel last summer, fired 1-2, with Michael John Shine also hitting the net after a Coleman assist.

Killeagh/Ita’s were on the goal trail in their U21 defeat of Erin’s Own. Eoghan Keniry, so impressive for their seniors this season in a fine campaign which included a stunning upset against Douglas, was their leading light. He fired two goals, and Shane Smiddy and Ger Leahy one apiece, in a 4-16 to 3-12 win.

In a Carrigdhoun U21 derby, Ballymartle beat Ballinhassig, who had Cork back-up keeper Patrick Collins in attack and his brother, Rebel minor, Ger in between the posts, by 1-12 to 1-10. Adam Murphy hit the vital goal.

On the camogie front, Glen Rovers pulled off an upset by getting the better of a Killeagh team which included Laura Treacy and Hannah Looney, 1-12 to 0-8. Nicole O’Brien was the main scorer with 1-8, but Lauren Callanan, Lydia Cunningham and Leanne O’Sullivan all stood up and were counted.

Éire Óg are through to the Premier 1 MFC semi-final, consigning holders Nemo Rangers to the quarters, after a 1-13 to 1-10 win. Rian O’Flynn, goal-scorer Matt Brady, and James O’Sullivan made some big plays for the Ovens outfit.

David McCullagh and Stephen Willis fired the goals for Ballincollig in a 2-8 to 1-7 Premier 2 MFC victory over Fermoy, with Olan Dorgan landing some pressure frees.
