Leinster club IHC semi-finals

ST PATRICK’S BALLYRAGGET booked their place in the Leinster club IHC final with a 2-20 to 2-10 win over Meath’s Kiltale this afternoon.

Goals inside the opening 11 minutes from Conor Delaney and Seoirse Kenny handed the Kilkenny champions a 2-11 to 0-2 lead early on.

They led by 10 points at the break and continued in the same vein of form after the beak with county panelist Kevin Kelly proving deadly in front of the posts with 0-12.

Kiltale made a fist of things in the second-half and found the net twice, but Ballyragget maintained their 10-point advantage by the finish.

They’ll meet Wicklow side Gleanealy who upset St Anne’s of Wexford with a 1-14 to 2-8 win to book their first ever Leinster final.

The teams were deadlocked at 1-7 to 2-4 at the interval after an entertaining opening 30 minutes, but Gleanealy outscored their opponents by 0-7 to 0-4 in the second period to seal a place in the decider.

Ballyboughal enjoyed a narrow 3-8 to 0-15 win over Curraha to book their place in the intermediate football provincial final today.

Max Brady raised a green flag for the Westmeath champions shortly after the turnaround and despite a late Erin Rovers rally, Multyfarnham ran out 2-6 to 0-5 victors.
