Goals by Ryan Bergin (penalty) and Dan McCormack in the 34th and 40th minutes helped John Lockes (Callan) shooting into the Kilkenny junior hurling final.

In a fast and lively semi-final in Nowlan Park today they beat Dicksboro by 2-18 to 2-13 .

The winners play either Mooncoin or Barrow Rangers (Paulstown), who play their semi next weekend, in the final.

The 'Boroo enjoyed a great start with a goal after 45 seconds from Bill Sheehan.

They led for all but a minute of the half, but the scores were level at half-time, 0-10 (JL) to 1-7.
