AN INJURY-TIME WINNER sent Limerick’s young guns past Tipperary and into the Eirgrid Munster U20 football semi-final against Kerry. 

Tonight’s rainy clash finished 0-7 to 0-6 at Mick Neville Park, Rathkeale, with Barry Coleman kicking the all-important winner for the Treaty. 

Eoin O’Mahony (two marks), James Cummins, Brian Foley, Rory O’Brien and John Hayes (free) were also on the scoresheet for Limerick, who trailed 0-3 to 0-2 at half-time, after playing against the wind.

Jerry O’Sullivan’s side now face Kerry on home soil next Wednesday.

Tonight’s other Munster U20 clash between Clare and Waterford was postponed due to adverse weather conditions.

The quarter-final tie was due to take place at Hennessy Park in Milltown-Malbay at 7pm and has now been rescheduled for the same time tomorrow evening.
