Abbeydorney caused the big upset of the weekend in the Kingdom by beating favourites Lixnaw in the quarter-final of the Kerry Senior Hurling Championship.

Abbeydorney won the game 1-18 to 0-19. It was corner forward Jack Sheehan who scored the crucial goal for the winners.

The two sides were level at half-time at 0-11 each and were still square by the 49th minute. That was when Sheehan struck.

A superb pass from the half-forward line found Sheehan. After taking a shoulder, he spun and smashed the sliotar beyond Martin Stackpoole in the Lixnaw net to put his side ahead 1-15 to 0-15.

Lixnaw continued to tag on points but so did Abbeydorney. By the final whistle, Sheehan's goal was what separated the teams.

Lixnaw had played in the last three Kerry hurling finals, winning the title in 2018. Abbeydorney march on looking to win their first title since 1974.

Should they win the semi-final against Kilmoyley, it will be Abbeydorney's first time in the county decider since 2005.
