Celbridge and Naas book semi final spots

Billy White, Celbridge, super display of free taking against Éire Óg Corrachoill

Celbridge and Naas booked their places in this season's senior hurling championship semi finals with impressive displays on Thursday evening (August 4) against Éire Óg Corrachoill and Leixlip respectively.

Celbridge had just two points to spare thanks mainly to a hugely impressive display of free taking from midfielder Billy White.

Naas, on the other hand, trailed Leixlip at the break but stepped up their game big time on the resumption, eventually winning on a score line of Naas 4-16 Leixlip 2-12.

In the other SHC games (Group 2, losers group), Ardclough defeated Clane 2-20 to 1-16 while on Wednesday night Coill Dubh got the better of Confey 0-11 to 0-9.

Full reports of all four championship games in next week's Leinster Leader, in the shops on Tuesday.
