Cashel King Cormacs 4-20 Sean Treacys 0-9

Cashel King Cormacs proved much too strong for Sean Treacys at Cappawhite on Friday evening. The diparity in the scores raises the question of senior teams being allowed to enter their second strings in the competition.

The story of this game is of one-way traffic from start to finish. Cashel led by 3-11 to 0-4 at the interval and were in front by 4-20 to 0-9 at the final whistle. Cashel’s chief scorer was Timmy Moloney who notched up 2-7 in the course of the hour.

The result means that Cashel now top the group and await final placings to learn their opponents in the semi-final.
