CORK’S ST FRANCIS College, Rochestown, sealed their Munster semi-final spot today after it took extra-time to separate themselves and Clonakility Community College in the Corn Uí Mhuirí.

Three Kerry teams — St Brendan’s College, Tralee CBS and Pocalscoil Siabh Luachra — progressed yesterdat in the Munster Post Primary School U19 Gaelic football competition.

Killarney school St Brendan’s College, the record winners and favourites, remain on course to add to a 23rd title and they face Rochestown next after their hard-fought win today.

The last semi-finalist was decided on the Páirc Uí Chaoimh all-weather pitch this afternoon after Rochestown’s all-Cork clash with Clonakilty was originally called off.

Midfielder Adam Cantwell led the way for the eventual winners, his hat-trick proving decisive on Leeside as an epic contest finished 4-11 to 2-13 after extra time. 

Cantwell slotted home two penalties for Rochestown, and added another brilliant goal from play, while Darragh Holland scored their first major in the first half.
