Rovers, playing without the Dubai-based Peter Acheson, had to come from behind as Aherlow finished the first period the stronger side to build a half-time lead of 0 – 5 to 0-9 having been level at five points apiece with 17 minutes on the clock.
Liam Boland signalled Moyle Rovers’ intent from the start of the second half with back-to-back scored before Hill hit the net on 44 minutes.

That score gave Rovers the lead which they would not cough up. Though the score was reduced to the minimum by Aherlow until Mulcahy struck to open up a 2 – 8 to 0-10 advantage with just over 15 minutes remaining.
The victory sets up a clash with Kilsheelan-Kilcash in Sunday’s semi-final (throw-in 14.30). Reigning Munster champions Clonmel Commercials take on 2014 Tipp senior champions Loughmore-Castleiney in the other county semi-final.
