NEMO RANGERS AND Duhallow completed the Cork senior football semi-final line-up last night while reigning Limerick champions Monaleen exited at the last four stage.

Nemo Rangers ran out 3-18 to 2-16 victors against UCC in a high-scoring clash in Páirc Uí Rinn.

Cork senior Barry O’Driscoll grabbed two goals for Nemo Rangers, his second arriving late on to clinch victory after UCC had chipped away at their advantage during the second half.

Kevin Fulignati also netted for Nemo Rangers, who were in front 2-11 to 2-6 at half-time, while Luke Connolly and Paul Kerrigan bagged some important points.

Liam O’Sullivan and Briain Ó Beaglaoich raised the first-half green flags for UCC while the Kerry trio of Cathal Bambury, Conor Geaney and Sean O’Shea struck the points that kept UCC in contention in the second half.

Divisional side Duhallow defeated Valley Rovers 1-14 to 1-12 in Macroom with a late Jerry O’Connor goal proving crucial for the victors.

Duhallow recovered from a poor start when they trailed 1-5 to 0-1, former Cork senior Fiachra Lynch netting for Valley Rovers.

But Duhallow recovered to be 1-7 to 0-6 adrift at half-time and O’Connor’s late goal allied to six points from frees by Donncha O’Connor set up a semi-final with Nemo Rangers next weekend.
