The semi final for this year’s Kelly Cup has been completed following this afternoon’s action.
Four games took place across the county with Arles-Killeen, St Joseph’s, Stradbally and Killeshin advancing to the last four of the competition.
Stradbally had to come from behind to see off Arles-Kilcruise in Derek Conroy’s first game in charge of the Little Town.
Kilcruise played with the breeze in the first half and David Conway led them to a 0-7 to 0-4 lead at half time.
But Podge Fitzpatrick struck for a great goal while Jody Dillon, Colm Kelly and Tom Shiel were all on the scoresheet in a 1-11 to 0-9 win.
They will face 2017 champions St Joseph’s in the semi final after they overcame Ballylinan this afternoon.
The Kellyville men led 0-7 to 0-4 at half time and while Ballylinan did come back in the second half, St Joseph’s did enough to keep them at bay.
Meanwhile, after a week of controversy off the pitch, Killeshin and Graiguecullen met in Killeshin.
A Brian Lowry goal helped Killeshin to a 1-2 to 0-4 lead at half time while Cathal Brennan added a second goal in the second half as they ran out winners by two points.
Killeshin will now face Arles-Killeen in the semi final after they won convincingly for the second week in a row.
After a big win over Timahoe in Round 1, they defeated Crettyard by 5-13 to 0-7 to reach the last four in style.
Arles-Kilcruise 0-9 Stradbally 1-11
Killeshin 2-6 Graiguecullen 0-10
St Joseph’s 0-11 Ballylinan 0-10
