There was late drama in yesterday's Limerick SHC semi-final in Bruff where Kilmallock overcame the odds and the dreadful weather to pip Doon on a 1-13 to 2-9 scoreline.

Doon led until the 65th minute when substitute Robbie Egan kicked home a last-gasp winning goal for Kilmallock, who will meet old foes Na Piarsaigh in the decider at the resurfaced TUS Gaelic Grounds on October 30. Na Piarsaigh booked their place in the final with a comfortable win over surprise packets South Liberties in the other semi-final on Saturday.

Doon led by 1-6 to 0-5 at half-time thanks to Darragh Stapleton's 13th minute goal. As the conditions worsened, Doon extended their advantage to 2-7 to 0-6 thanks to a second goal from Dean Coleman in the 37th minute. But they would score just once more as Kilmallock stormed back with points from Shane O'Brien, Phelim O'Reilly, Conor Hanley-Clarke and Oisin O'Reilly before Egan delivered the knockout blow at the death.
