Tomorrow sees the Top Oil Corn Ui Dhuill Quarter Finals take place in Wexford. This is the last chance saloon for all teams in a bid to join St Kieran’s of Kilkenny and Dublin’s Coláiste Eoin who are already safely through to the Semi Final stages.
St Peter’s Wexford v Kilkenny CBS
First up is the clash of St Peter’s Wexford and Kilkenny CBS in Bunclody. St Peter’s arrive here fresh from a defeat against St Kieran’s in the second round. Despite losing out in the end there was enough on display to give the Slaney siders hope ahead of tomorrow. Sharp shooting Patrick O’Connor and fellow Blackwater man Mossy Murphy will cause serious problems up front. Having beaten Borris VS in Round 1 Peter’s will be hoping the last day was only a bump in the road. On the other side of the fence stands Kilkenny CBS who’s season has been a role reverse of St Peter’s so far. The struggled in the opening round falling victim to what is looking increasingly like a strong Coláiste Eoin side. They got the wheels back on track in round 2 with a convincing win over Borris VS. The Kilkenny side will be hoping that Jack O’Dwyer can deliver again finishing the last day with an individual tally of 1-12. For one of these sides tomorrow will be the end of the road, will having to cross the border prove too much for the Marble City men or will the rise to the challenge? Throw in tomorrow is at 2pm.
Good Counsel v Dublin North
Dublin North will be looking to keep the defence of their title alive as they travel down the M11 tomorrow to face Good Counsel College. Following an opening round win over Offaly side St Brendan’s Birr last year’s Champions came a cropper in a Dublin derby against Coláiste Eoin last time out. They were right in contention for much of this game with Coláiste Eoin’s goal scoring prowess proving the difference in the end. Liam Dunne’s individual tally of eight points alongside a number of returning players from last year’s Championship winning side will serve as fair warnings for their hosts. Good Counsel ran into a relentless St Kieran’s team in round one meaning they faced a must win clash with St Brendan’s of Birr in the second round. The Slaney siders rose to the occasion winning out by 4 points in a tight game. Seán O’Connor and Cathal Doyle will prove a handful for any team as the look to build on the momentum garnered in this win. Tomorrow we will learn if this year’s Top Oil Corn Ui Dhuill cup has a new home or if it will remain in the North of the Capital a little longer. Throw in at Ferns CoE is at 2.30pm
