KEITH CUR­TIS and Jeaic Tim­mons con­trib­uted 4-6 of Rathkenny’s tally in this U-21B quar­ter-fi­nal at Castle­town on Satur­day evening.

Drum­con­rath/Meath Hill had reg­is­tered three points be­fore Cur­tis opened Rathkenny’s ac­count from play on 12 min­utes. Cur­tis added three more points be­fore the end of the half and then found the net on the stroke of half-time from a Sean Gav­a­gan pass.

Ear­lier Tim­mons had opened the win­ners’ goal ac­count and at the break Rathkenny led 2-5 to 0-5. A sec­ond Tim­mons goal a minute af­ter the restart ended Drum­con­rath/Meath Hill hopes and Thomas McGuin­ness added a point be­fore the losers opened their sec­ond-half ac­count.

Cur­tis took his tally to 2-5 with his side’s fourth goal four min­utes from the fin­ish.
