AIB Munster Club SFC: Castlehaven edge out Cratloe
Castlehaven 1-12 Cratloe 0-11 AET
Report from GAA.ie
A Robbie Minihane goal saw Castlehaven overcome a gritty Cratloe effort in extra-time to advance to the Munster Club SFC semi-finals.
In a game level nine times, substitute Minihane sealed the Cork Champions’ trip away to Waterford winners Rathgormack on Sunday week.
The 68th-minute breakthrough was crafted brilliantly by Jack Cahalane, who exchanged a one-two with Mark Collins from a sideline before dinking the ball into Minihane’s path. His shot was placed perfectly into the bottom corner.

Two frees from former Clare hurler Cathal McInerney cut the deficit back to one but the Haven landed the final three points from Brian Hurley (2) and Jamie O’Driscoll.
Hurley scored 0-7 in all, four from play, in a match-winning contribution.
In a game switched to Páirc Uí Chaoimh due to pitch conditions and the poor weather forecast for the West Cork club’s home ground, both sides were deadlocked for most of a tense opening half. Cahalane pointed twice to send them in level at 0-4 each.
It continued in that vein with no score between the 41st and 58th minutes, although the hosts were the happier as they nullified the damage during Johnny O’Regan’s period in the sin bin.
In an explosive finale, Hurley’s long-range left-footed effort edged the Haven ahead before corner-back David Collins, one of three sons of manager Colm Collins on the field, produced the response.
Mark Collins looked to have given the Cork champions the winner but another defender Enda Boyce stepped forward to land an outside-of-the-boot equaliser.
It ended 0-9 apiece, but the Haven found more in extra-time.
