Tarbert 0-9

Brosna 2-6

THIS was an even game of football throughout the pitch, with Brosna forwards shading the verdict for their side.

It took until the sixth min for the first score, which came from a converted free by Brosna's Tom McGoldrick. Again it was Brosna on the attack when a high ball in was won by new kid on the block for Brosna, Patrick O'Keeffe, to side-step the full-back and the goalkeeper to rattle the Tarbert net in the ninth minute.

Tarbert's reply came in the 10th minute from wing-forward Ger O'Sullivan. In the 13th minute O'Keeffe split the posts. The scoring was swaying up and down the field with Tarbert's last score in the 17th minue. Bronsa finished the half by scoring 1-5 to 0-4.

In the second half it Tarbert notched up five points, but it was not to be as Brosna's full-forward Seamus McAuliffe rattled the net. The insurance point came from midfielder Eamon Kiely. Brosna now face the winners of Duagh or Ballyduff in the quarter-final.

Quarter Final

Beale 2-5

Finuge 2-7

THE scores in this game didn't come easy.

There was just a point a piece by the 20 minute mark. Finuge finished the half with two more points added to the board. The only score from Beale before the whistle – a goal from Ger O'Gorman, but the scoreboard did not tell the true story. Beale were playing the better football. Their forwards, however, were wasting possession with wide after wide.

Last year's finalists were left with plenty to rue in the second half. They coughed up two easy goals to Finuge in the 12th and 15th minutes. After that the seasiders were always playing catch up.

There was hope when in the 51st minute Tom Hayes rattled the Finuge for a goal, but Finuge held out adding a late free. Finuge now await the semi-final draw.
