Drom and Inch progressed to the semi-finals of the Tipperary Senior Hurling Championship following a monumental battle with reigning champions Borris-Ileigh on Sunday evening.

It took extra-time and a penalty shootout to separate the two sides.

Incredibly, only four of the eight penalties taken in the shootout hit the net as Drom won 3-1. Goalkeeper Eoin Collins was the hero at the end for Drom and Inch, saving two penalties including the final strike by Brendan Maher.

The two sides had finished level in normal time following a remarkable final few minutes which saw Borris-Ileigh go from five points up in the 63rd minute to requiring a 90-plus yard free from Brendan Maher to level the game.

The first of two late goals which got Drom and Inch back into the game came from a Seamus Callanan free. David Butler scored the other.

The 20 minutes of extra-time was equally dramatic with both sides leading and looking like victors at various stages before it eventually finished Drom and Inch 4-19, Borris-Ileigh 1-28 and penalties were required.
