Kilrossanty booked their place in the Quarter-Final stages of the Co. Senior Football Championship by virtue of a comfortable win over Brickey Rangers in Fraher Field last night.
The sides were level, 0-2 apiece after ten minutes before the Comeragh side began to assert their dominance on the game despite losing their midfielders, Martin Dunne and Tommy Prendergast through injury.
A brace of goals from the impressive Joey Veale and another green flag from Pa Cunningham gave Emmett Doherty’s charges a 3-8 to 0-5 lead at the break.
James Whyte netted a fourth goal for the winners, with Josh Kay, Donie Fitzgerald and Alan Quinn all working the scoreboard.
Cormac O’ Grady got a late consolation goal for the Brickies who will now have to pick themselves for a relegation battle.
It finished Kilrossanty 4-14 Brickey Rangers 1-8.
Kilrossanty selector Pierce Connell was pleased with the win.
Pierce told WLR Sport he was happy with the movement of their forward line.
Pierce says they would have liked a stiffer test going into the Quarter-Final stages.
The remaining two play-offs will be played this week, Ardmore and Rathgormack meet at 8pm in Fraher Field tomorrow evening, while the all-Eastern clash between Gaultier and Portlaw will take place Thursday evening in St. Molleran’s with throw-in at 7:45pm.
