UCC 1-23 Imokilly 1-20

UCC SENT IMOKILLY packing from the Cork Premier SHC in the Divisional/College hurling final tonight in Pairc Ui Rinn.

The divisional and college sides in Cork compete in a separate section of the championship, with the winners qualifying for the knock-out stage proper.

Divisional outfit Imokilly were chasing a fourth county title in succession but the fell to a strong UCC side that contained Cork defender Mark Coleman and Kerry star Shane Conway.

Conway posted 0-6 for the victors, Neil Montgomery scored 0-5 and Coleman slotted over a late sideline.

Rebels forward Seamus Harnedy missed out for Imokilly with a hamstring injury.

Owen McCarthy’s goal left them 1-13 to 0-10 ahead at half-time, but efforts from John Looney, Josh Beausang and Will Leahy brought Imokilly back to within two by the second-half water break.
