Jordan leads Tralee fightback

Ps Chorca Dhuibhne 0-13

Tralee CBS 2-11Corn Ui Mhuiri

Tralee CBS needed a second-half fightback to defeat last year's beaten finalists Pobalscoil Chorca Dhuibhne -- meaning both Kerry sides go through after this cracker at Annascaul.

PS Chorca Dhuibhne raced into a 0-7 to 0-2 lead by the 22nd minute, with Dara O Se hitting three frees, while Tralee had two frees from Niall Sheehy and Jack Savage. However, a 29th-minute Danny Carroll goal boosted Tralee.

Chorca Dhuibhne led 0-8 to 1-4 at the interval, but points from Sean Moloney and Carroll put Tralee two clear only for the Dingle lads to level thanks to Tomas O Caomhanaigh and Cathal O Bambaire.

In the 56th minute, Tralee's Conor Jordan played the ball into Carroll, who returned it to the in-rushing Jordan and he fired home to seal the win.
