GLEN ROVERS AND Douglas will have to replay to determine who will advance to face Sarsfields in this year’s Cork senior hurling final.

A late Mark O’Connor free rescued a draw for Douglas in today’s semi-final clash in Páirc Uí Chaoimh after it had looked like Shane Kennefick had claimed the winner for Glen Rovers.

A 3rd minute goal by David Cunningham provided the early springboard for Glen Rovers and they were in front by 1-6 to 0-2 by the 16th minute. Patrick Horgan, Donal Cronin and David Busteed all raised white flags for them while Alan Cadogan replied for Douglas.

O’Connor struck four points in the second quarter and by the break Douglas had cut the gap to four points as they trailed by 1-8 to 0-7. Glen Rovers continued to make the running in the second-half and were in front by 1-10 to 0-9 after 40 minutes and had stretched ahead 1-14 to 0-11 by the 47th minute.

But then Douglas rallied, inspired by a superb goal by Odhran Mulrooney and when Theo Cullinane pointed in the 55th minute, they had gone in front by 1-15 to 1-14.

David Noonan notched a great point to bring Glen Rovers level before Kennefick and O’Connor swapped points in a pulsating finale.
