Eire Og Annacarty Donohill advanced to the semi final of the Tipperary Co Op West Junior B Hurling Championship as a result of their eight point victory over Golden, in a hugely entertaining game at Golden on Tuesday evening. In a closely contested game opening half, where the sides were level on six occasions, the visitors led by two points at the break, Eire Og 0.8, Golden 0.6.

For the second half Eire Og, with Ronan O’Brien, Michael Buckley and Richard O’Doherty in fine form, upped the tempo and ran out easy winners at the finish. Daithi Ivers kept Golden in touch with some fine saves throughout, but were over dependent on Kevin Hally and John Corry to keep the scoreboard ticking over.
