GLEN ROVERS AND Sarsfields have shared a county title apiece from their Cork senior hurling meetings over the last two years.

And the pair’s familiarity with each other will continue as they face after finishing all square at 3-19 to 2-22 in last night’s Cork senior hurling championship Round 2A tie in Páirc Uí Rinn.

Two late converted frees by Patrick Horgan clinched a draw for Glen Rovers in extra-time. It was a point from a Horgan placed ball that had secured a draw after normal time as well when his score left the teams tied at 2-14 apiece.

Sarsfields were in front 0-10 to 1-6 at the interval in normal time with Dean Brosnan netting for Glen Rovers. Cian McCarthy and Daniel Kearney both raised green flags for Sarsfields in the second-half as did Horgan from a long-range free.

McCarthy hit another goal in extra-time for the 2014 champions but Horgan’s markmanship ensured another day out for the 2015 kingpins.

In the opening game at the venue, Blackrock ran out 2-17 to 1-18 victors over Duhallow.

Two goals from Michael O’Halloran – a member of the extended Cork senior panel this year – helped Blackrock to victory. They were in front 1-11 to 0-10 at the interval and 2-17 to 0-15 in the finale but conceded 1-3 without reply in the closing stages.

Donal Hannon scored the goal for a Duhallow team that included Aidan Walsh, Anthony Nash, Mark Ellis, Lorcan McLoughlin and William Egan.
