Kilkenny SHC

TJ REID’S HAUL of 10 points wasn’t enough to secure victory for Ballyhale Shamrocks, as their Kilkenny SHC quarter-final against Clara ended in a draw after a thrilling encounter.

Liam Ryan’s 57th minute strike from distance ultimately ensured the game would go to a replay, although opponents Ballyhale had three definite chances to close out the game in added time.

Kilkenny midfielder Michael Fennelly was among those to get a scoring opportunity for Ballyhale at the death, but he hit his shot wide just before the final whistle.

Fennelly did finish the game with a point to his credit, as the tie finished up 2-14 apiece.

Reigning Kilkenny champions O’Loughlin Gaels made routine work of their quarter-final encounter with Erin’s Own, to come away with a 1-18 0-13 win.

Mark Bergin lead the charge with 0-11, while three-time All-Star Martin Comerford also chipped in with two points from play.

Limerick SHC

Patrickswell’s Limerick SHC title defence came to a crashing halt on Saturday, after they suffered a 1-18 0-13 semi-final defeat to Kilmallock.

Eoin Ryan posted 11 points for the victors to set up a repeat of the 2014 decider against Na Piarsaigh on 15 October.

Michael Houlihan netted the only goal of the night to give Kilmallock a three-point lead at the break, and they progressed from there in the second half.
