Cappawhite booked their place in the semi-final of the 2021 Crosco Cup following victory over the recently crowned, County Junior A Hurling champions Arravale Rovers in Sean Treacy Park on Wednesday evening who started with nine of their team from their County success five days previous.

Just a goal separated the sides at the interval in what was an evenly contested opening half. Arravale Rovers opened the scoring with a point from Donagh Leahy which was cancelled out by Willie Barry at the other end. The sides were level five times over the course of the half but Ciaran Doody’s goal just before half time gave them a three-point interval lead.

Cappawhite got a perfect start to the second half when Pakie Barry, goaled in the third minute of the second half. Arravale Rovers refused to give in and the gap was down to three points by the ninth minute when Donagh Leahy goaled. The game continued to be close until Frazer Allen goaled with twelve minutes remaining. With five to go Cappawhite had stretched the lead to eight points. Arravale found a way back when Cor- mac Maher cut in for a goal and it ensured a frantic finish as Arravale looked for goal number four. Michael Sharpe pulled on the sliotar after a scramble near the Cappawhite goal but his effort went over the bar. Paddy Russell then blew the final whistle as Cap- pawhite advanced to a semi-final meeting with Cashel King Cormacs.
