Paul Kerrigan's goal proved the difference in Cork SFC semi-final as Nemo advance

CARBERY Rangers’ brave bid to make it back-to-back county senior football final appearances ended in dramatic fashion on Sunday afternoon.

The Ross men lost their Cork SFC semi-final against Nemo Rangers, 1-11 to 0-13.

Ross paid the price for a poor first half as they trailed 1-7 to 0-3 at the break, Paul Kerrigan scoring an early goal for Nemo, wjile Luke Connolly and James Masters made their scoring presence felt throughout.

The second half was a lot better from Carbery Rangers as they came within two points, 0-9 to 1-8, by the three-quarter stage, as John Hayes, Seamus Hayes and John O’Rourke led the fight back.

A shoulder injury to O’Rourke was a big blow to Ross, even though he came back on.

In a dramatic final O’Rourke looked to have earned a penalty for Ross when they trailed by three, 1-11 to 0-11, but it was waved away.

Seamus Hayes and John Hayes sent over late scores to make it a one-point game, but a late Ross chance went wide, as Nemo held on to win.
