Conor Lehane and Patrick Horgan were in top scoring form as Midleton and Glen Rovers qualified for the Cork SHC final at Páirc Uí Chaoimh yesterday.

Lehane posted 0-10 for Midleton as they dethroned Blackrock with a 4-22 to 3-19 victory. Leading by 1-14 to 1-11 at half-time, Midleton blitzed 'The Rockies' with a hat-trick of third quarter goals from Luke O'Farrell, Pa White and Ross O'Regan to extend their lead to 4-16 to 2-13. And despite hitting 14 wides, the Ben O'Connor-coached East Cork outfit ran out comfortable winners.

In the other semi-final, Patrick Horgan - who had a suspension overturned to line out - bagged 1-11 as Glen Rovers overcame Sarsfields on a 1-17 to 0-18 scoreline.

Jack O'Connor's fifth point had Sars' ahead with six minutes to go, but his Cork team-mate Horgan finished with a flourish to seal Glen's place in the decider.
