Adare and Oola reach Limerick SFC knockout stages with 100% records

ADARE and Oola have reached the knockout stages of the Irish Wire Products Limerick SFC with a game to spare.

The two sides made with four straight wins in the group stages this Friday evening.

Adare defeated St Senans while Oola beat St Kierans.

Back-to-back champions Adare are now guaranteed a direct passage to the semi final ahead of the final group game.

Oola are guaranteed at least a quarter final spot and play Newcastle West in their final group game to determine which side secures the direct route to the semi final.

Oola were 3-8 to 0-15 winners over St Kierans, who will now have to get at least a draw against Galbally in their final round to reach the quarter finals.

The east Limerick side were 2-5 to 0-6 ahead at half time. Inter-county hurlers Richie English and Pat Ryan among the goals.

In the second half English added his second goal to seal the win.

Sean McSweeney, John Hayes and Noel Callanan had points for St Kierans but the three goals proved decisive. 

Adare had a 2-20 to 0-10 win over St Senans, who are winless and will have to beat Ballysteen in their final game to have any chance of avoiding a relegation play-off.

Adare were 2-11 to 0-5 ahead by half time with both goals for Robbie Bourke.
