Carlow booked their place in the semi-finals of the Leinster U-21 HC thanks to this two-point win over Laois last night.

Carlow 2-15 Laois 4-7

The visitors to O'Moore Park were trailing by four points at half-time, but came back strongly in the second half to claim the victory.

The first half was let down by some poor shooting from both sides, with the highlight being a superb hat-trick from Laois forward Cha Dwyer.

His goal in the tenth minute gave Laois the lead for the first time, and he struck again in the 20th and 21st minutes to give Laois a 3-1 to 1-5 lead, while James Doyle got the goal for Carlow.

Laois held a four-point lead at the break, but the introduction of Kevin McDonald at half-time for Carlow swung the game in their favour.

His free-taking gave them a regular supply of scores, with Ayrton Gleeson's goal making PJ Scully's late effort a consolation for Laois.

Scorers - Carlow: K McDonald 0-7 (6f), J Doyle 1-3 (2f), M Kavanagh 0-4 (2f), A Gleeson 1-0, G Coady 0-1. Laois: C Dwyer 3-1, PJ Scully 1-3 (2f, '65), C Taylor, C Collier, R Broderick 0-1 each.

LAOIS - E Rowland; S Finan, C McEvoy, R Broderick; C Stapleton, G Dunne, J Campion; D Palmer, R Mullaney; C Taylor, PJ Scully, C Collier; A Moore, C Dwyer, B Conroy. Subs: S Bergin for Taylor (48), D Cripps for Moore (53).

CARLOW - J Barron; S Whelan, L Roche, M Malone; J Murphy, G Coady, M Grady; D Byrne, C Fenlon; M Kavanagh, D Wall, P Shaw; J Doyle, A Gleeson, T Joyce. Subs: K McDonald for Joyce (h-t), C Nolan for Wall (38), P Doran for Roche (55).
