The Ardrahan forward hit three successive points shortly after the restart to put the London champions back in front, and he fired over a wonderful score with the last puck of the game to kill off the visitors.

It was all square at half-time, 1-5 apiece, with Callanan's trio of points then putting Emmetts in control.

Vinnie Faherty set up a tense finish when he flicked to the net, but Callanan settled matters to book a semi-final date with Carlow's Mount Leinster Rangers.
