Fitz's-on-fire: DLS College book place in Harty Cup semi-finals following 9-point win over Nenagh

De La Salle College 4 - 13    Nenagh CBS 0 - 16

Patrick Fitzgerald fired 1-11 as De La Salle college qualified for the Harty Cup semi-final on Saturday week...

The Ballygunner sharpshooter netted an unbelievable goal ten minutes into the 2nd-half as Dermot Dooley's side overcame a dogged Nenagh CBS challenge (4-13 to 0-16 the full-time score)...

The Waterford side held a four-point lead at the change of ends with Sam Pender getting the goal on 7 minutes, Fitzgerald and Eoin Grace exchanged brilliant sideline cuts in what was a lively encounter played in the winter sunshine at a balmy Bansha...

The Tipp school came roaring back into the game upon the re-start mainly thanks to the free-taking of Darragh McCarthy who ended with a personal tally of 12 points, a fine long range score from Michéal Ryan left a point between the sides heading down the home stretch..


But it was DLS who finished the game well with a big impact off the bench as Conor Tobin and Luke Horgan both found the net with literally their first touches since coming on, an impressive team display and De La Salle can now look forward to a rematch against Clare outfit, St. Joseph's Tulla in the last four on Saturday week (time and venue TBC)

Full-time from Tipperary; De La Salle College 4 -13 Nenagh CBS 0 -16, Referee: John O' Halloran (Luimneach)
