And then there were four 2011

Results were much closer this year than last year in the quarter-finals of the County Championship, although if the De La Salle – Passage game was anything to go by, that might be an illusion:

17/9/11 at Walsh Park
De La Salle 2-18 (24) Passage 3-12 (21)

17/9/11 at Fraher Field
Tallow 1-15 (18) Lismore 0-16 (16)

17/9/11 at Fraher Field
Ballyduff Upper 0-22 (22) Mount Sion 1-17 (20) (AET)

18/9/11 at Fraher Field
Ballygunner 2-13 (19) Fourmilewater 1-12 (15)

This has wrought carnage at the top of my wish list:

  1. Passage
  2. Fourmilewater
  3. Lismore
  4. Tallow
  5. De La Salle
  6. Ballyduff Upper
  7. Ballygunner
  8. Mount Sion

The draw for the semi-finals is (allegedly) as follows:

Tallow v Ballyduff Upper
De La Salle v Ballygunner

And that’s enough colons for one day.

Update 20/9/11: the times and venues for the semi-finals have been announced:

2/10/11 at Fraher Field (4pm)
Tallow v Ballyduff Upper

3/10/11 at Walsh Park (3.30pm)
De La Salle v Ballygunner
