CBC Power into first Harty Cup final in 101 years
CBC Cork 2-12 Thurles CBS 0-13
Having lost the first Harty Cup final to Rockwell in 1918, Cork's CBC will end a long wait when they take part in this year's decider.
At Kilfinane on Saturday, goals from Jack Cahalane and Shane Barrett earned them a place in an all-Cork final against Midleton CBS, winning by five points after trailing by 0-9 to 1-4 at half-time.
Cahalane struck early and while Devon Ryan's frees had Thurles in front, seven first-half wides would come back to haunt them.
Barrett's goal had CBC level at 2-4 to 0-10 early in the second-half and they had points from him, Pádraig Power and Declan Hanlon as they eased clear.
Ryan's ninth point cut the gap for Thurles and they might have had an injury-time goal, but Kieran Moloney's shot hit the crossbar.
