Andy Murphy helped himself to 1-6 as Cappamore booked a place in the Munster club JFC semi-final thanks to a 2-7 to 0-6 win over Borrisokane on Sunday.

It means the Limerick champions entertain Clarecastle at home next Saturday. On the other side of the draw Kenmare (Kerry) play Kilmacthomas (Waterford) with the winners to advance to play Rockchapel in the other semi-final.

Murphy’s goal was somewhat fortuitious in the 14th minute of the first half but it helped his side into a 1-4 to 0-3 lead at the break. With wind advantage in the second half, Cappamore pushed on and a second goal ensured the win and they even survived the dismissal of Declan Deere and Denis Keating on second yellow cards.
