Avondhu 3-18 Muskerry 0-19

Two goals early in the second half ensured a straightforward passage to the Co-op SuperStores Premier SHC unseeded divisional final for Avondhu against Muskerry at Donoughmore on Tuesday night.

The North Cork side will face Duhallow next week for a spot in the semi-finals of the divisions and colleges section and they were good value for the victory, settling the outcome as a five-point half-time lead was buttressed thanks to goals from Stephen Condon and Jack Twomey.

Having scored 1-8 in their previous match against Carbery three weeks ago, Condon improved on that as he landed 1-10, ensuring that the absence of Colin O’Brien – scorer of 1-10 in the Carbery match – was not felt as keenly as it might be.

Despite playing against the wind in the opening period, Avondhu led at half-time by 1-11 to 0-9, with their power source coming from a half-back line of Darragh O’Reilly, Mark Keane and Brian Buckley that became more dominant as the half went on.
