AHL round-up: Cats break Rebel hearts

Limerick thrash Laois at Gaelic Grounds

John Power broke Rebel hearts with an injury time winner as Kilkenny came from behind to beat Cork 2-23 to 2-22 in a high quality Allianz Hurling League Division 1A encounter at Pairc Ui Rinn.

Cork, looking for their first win of the campaign, delivered a much improved performance and will be wondering how they managed to let the game slip from their grasp in the dying minutes.

They dominated the opening 35 minutes to deservedly lead by 1-12 to 0-11 at the break, with Seamus Harnedy finding the net for the home side.

But Kilkenny upped their game after the break and slotted five unanswered points in five minutes to edge ahead.

But Cork responded, with Bill Cooper adding a second goal. Further scores from Conor Lehane and Patrick Horgan, who finished with 0-06 apiece, saw them lead 2-20 to 0-20 with five minutes left on the clock.

However, just as they had against Tipperary last weekend, Kilkenny struck late as goals from Colin Fennelly (1-02) and TJ Reid (1-12) along with points from Lester Ryan and Reid saw them edge ahead by two as the game moved towards stoppage time.

Remarkably, Cork hit back and two late Lehane points levelled it.

Cooper spurned a great chance to win it for the Rebels before Power capitalised on a poor clearance from the back to break rebel hearts and win it for the Cats.

In Division 1B, meanwhile, Limerick thrashed hapless Laois by 6-29 to 1-12 to make it four wins from four in the competition.

Barry Nash, a late replacement for Declan Hannon, notched 2-02 in the first half for the Treaty men before being rested at the break with TJ Ryan's side firmly in control at 3-15 to 0-06 at the Gaelic Grounds.

John Fitzgibbon contributed a very healthy 1-14 for the home side, with PJ Scully's 1-05 tally for Laois proving a mere consolation for the O'Moore men.
