Another hectic day on the sporting front has come to an end.
Down in Limerick, there were a number of Laois lads involved with the Midlands and Carlow squads at the Kennedy Cup.
They concluded their respective group stages and the Midlands will now play in the Bowl quarter finals while Carlow are off to the Shield.
After yesterday’s tough opening defeat at the hands on the DDSL, Carlow enjoyed a much better day today. Brandon Kelly was on the scoresheet as they defeated Athlone.
They then faced South Tipperary but a 2-0 defeat left them in third place in the group and they will play NDSL in the Shield quarter final at 1pm tomorrow.
The Midlands won their opening game against WWEC but went down to Limerick District this afternoon.
They then faced North Tipperary where Portlaoise’s Cathal Lee scored a brace to secure second spot in the group and set up Bowl quarter final against Carlow’s conquerors South Tipperary at 3pm.
Meanwhile, there was also a big game in the ACHL Division 1 as Rathdowney-Errill and Abbeyleix concluded their campaigns.
And Rathdowney-Errill are into the semi final of the league after a nine point win over Abbeyleix. Brandon McGinley’s goal gave them a 1-10 to 0-6 lead at half time.
Abbeyleix came back at them but further goals from Paddy Purcell and Mark Kavanagh sealed the win for Rathdowney.
Abbeyleix are in relegation trouble and if Castletown defeat Portlaoise on Sunday all three teams will finish deadlocked at the bottom of the table on two points.
Because Portlaoise gave a walkover to Camross earlier in the league, points difference can not separate the teams and a playoff would probably be required.
