Munster champions Kanturk continue brilliant season with quarter-final win in London

The Munster intermediate champions will face Middletown of Armagh with a place at Croke Park on the line.

Kanturk 2-17

Kilburn Gaels 2-8

CORK’S KANTURK HAVE progressed through to the semi-finals of the All-Ireland intermediate club hurling championship after a comfortable nine-point win in London this afternoon.

Crowned Munster champions earlier this month, Kanturk continued their sensational season as they saw off Kilburn Gaels at McGovern Park in Ruislip in front of a healthy band of travelling supporters.

A 14th consecutive championship victory of the year sees Donagh Duane’s side advance to the last four where they will meet Middletown of Armagh on 20 or 21 January. A place at Croke Park will be on the line.

In the end, the visitors had room to spare but they were thankful for a fine penalty save from goalkeeper Anthony Nash just before the interval to ensure they headed into the break 0-9 to 0-5 in front.

Liam O’Keeffe and Lorcan McLoughlin scored second-half goals either side of Jody Try’s strike for the hosts, but Kanturk finished strongly by reeling off nine points to safely ensure their passage through.
