West U21 Hurling Championship:
The O’Dwyer Steel West U21A Hurling championship continued last weekend. Clonoulty/Rossmore qualified for an 11th successive final following victory over Cappawhite/Treacys in Sean Treacy Park on Sunday last. Match Report
Clonoulty/Rossmore’s win puts them level on 4 points with Cappawhite/Treacys with a game to play. Clonoulty/Rossmore though go through to the final based on their head to head with Cappawhite/Treacys irrespective of the result in their last game against Arravale Rovers. Arravale Rovers defeat by Cashel King Cormacs in round 1 means even if they defeated Clonoulty/Rossmore in the final group game and go level on points with Cashel they cannot get past Cashel King Cormacs on the head to head and so the last group game will be irrelevant.
Cappawhite/Treacys will now play Cashel King Cormacs in the West semi-final this Sunday November 22nd in Dundrum at 12 noon. Extra time will be played in the event of a draw. It will be the second meeting of the sides this year. When the sides met in the group phase of the competition it was Cappawhite/Treacys who were victorious.
Cappawhite/Treacys defeated Arravale Rovers and Cashel King Cormacs and were defeated by Clonoulty/Rossmore in the group phase of the competition.
Cashel King Cormacs had an opening round victory over Arravale Rovers but had subsequent defeats to Clonoulty/Rossmore and Cappawhite/Treacys in the group phase of the competition.
The Ollies Bar West U21B Hurling championship continues next weekend. The semi-final pairings will be decided by these games.
