Killanena 1-10 Sixmilebridge 1-9
AN injury-time, highly pressurised Mark Flaherty-pointed free, edged Killanena into the 2010 intermediate hurling county final following a tense battle in Clarecastle last Sunday.
They will meet Ruan in the final following their defeat of Clarecastle. With Sixmilebridge and Clarecastle beaten, it means that one fully fledged intermediate club will be senior within a couple of weeks.
