Carew Park reach Tuohy Cup final

Carew Park 2 - 0 Aisling Annacotty - Carew Park qualified for the final of the Tuohy Cup following a 2-0 win over holder Aisling Annacotty in Jackman Park last night.

Two goals in the first half sufficed for Albert Slattery's men to set up a final against Charleville.  Carew were handed a dream start when an attempted clearance fell at the feet of Jonathan Grant and a striker of his ability accepted the chance gratefully
Alex Purcell added to Aisling's woes before the break when his delivery from the right took a deflection over the head of 'Keeper Stephen Walsh.
Aisling gave it a real go after the break and Jason Lipper and Brian Butler both hit the woodwork.  The loss of Sosuke Kimura to a red card proved a big blow to the holders and while Carew's Gary Griffin joined him for an early shower, Aisling just could not find a way through, their best chances coming from long distance shots.
