NA Gaeil made it two victories in the space of seven days over Tuosist, but this was a far tougher assignment that their victory on home turf in the County League the week before.
They needed a bit of the magic that saw them through the First Round match with Ballyduff as well as it was another late winner for them, this time a David Culloty point in the depths of injury time.
The Tralee side also had the disadvantage of a four point deficit at half-time as Tuosist put up a strong defensive wall that was hard for them to break down.
The aid of the breeze ensured a 0-7 to 0-3 lead for the Kenmare District side at the break, Alan O'sullivan putting a very strong performance once more with a total of five points in the entire 60 minutes while Mike Tim O'sullivan pitched in with two points.
The introduction of Kerry Minor Jack Barry managed to swing the momentum in favour of Na Gaeil, however. Darragh Carmody also made an impact when introduced, but Tuosist really felt the loss of Flor O'sullivan through injury as the game got nearer the finish and the visitors started to whittle the lead down.
Colm Brosnan did his best to try and stop the Na Gaeil tide, but with Kieran Dineen and Colm Lyons holding the fort well in defence Tuosist just could not get the scores in the second half and Culloty punished them with the decisive score.
They might well be considered the 'underdogs' given the prominence of the other three teams left in the competition, but Na Gaeil will take huge confidence from the manner of their two victories in the competition so far and will fancy their chances of pulling off another big victory in the semi-final over St Pats with the form they are in.
