LAST year's Premier JHC finalists Kildorrery had 14 points to spare over Kilworth in a disappointing Hibernian Hotel Premier JHC quarter final at Fermoy last Sunday evening.
The sides were level 0-1 and 0-2 each early on with Kilworth having a goal by Sean Beecher after just five minutes.
Kildorrery responded well, they had a point by Eamon O'Connor with Peter O'Brien soloing through for a well taken goal. Kilworth forced a penalty for a foul on Ned O'Brien but Michael Wade's effort at goal was saved by Sean Walsh.
From here on Kildorrery gained supremacy. Their half backs and midfielders were very impressive and Eamon O'Connor, Peter O'Brien, William Fouhy, Finbarr Stapleton and the Kelly brothers took some good scores. By half time they added some well taken points and were 10 clear at the break 1-13 to 1-3.
Kilworth failed to make any real impression in the second half, they had a mere goal and four points in this period. Kildorrery moved Shane Fitzgerald to full back. Two of Kilworth's points came early by Justin Aherne and Michael Wade but it was the stronger Kildorrery side that were well on top. William Fouhy, Peter O'Brien (free) and Eamonn O'Connor made it 1-16 to 1-5.
The 'Hill had their second goal in the 40th minute when Michael Lillis and Jerry McCarthy worked well for Finbarr Stapleton to goal from a tight angle 2-16 to 1- 5. Both sides exchanged a point with Kilworth having a goal by Brian Whelan after being put through by Will Condon 2-17 to 2-6.
Kildorrery added late points by Peter O'Brien (2) and William Fouhy with Will Condon completing the scoring with a point. The semi finals are scheduled to be played this weekend. Kildorrery v Ballyhooly, Ballygiblin v Harbour Rovers.
