Connolly Cup holders Killoe are through to the final of the Covid delayed 2020 Peter Hanley Motors Senior Football Championship after cruising to a very easy win over Mostrim at Glennon Brothers Pearse Park on Saturday evening with the razor sharp Mark Hughes firing over the impressive total of 11 points. 

Killoe Emmet Og . . . 1-20     Mostrim . . . 1-6

Just a solitary score separated the sides (0-5 to 1-1) when Tiarnan Hussey broke through to score a fine individual goal for Edgeworthstown in the 11th minute of the first half but Emmet Og quickly got back on top to build up a comfortable 0-12 to 1-3 lead at the break. 

The slick Killoe side added another 1-8 to their most emphatic tally in the second half of the semi-final with Ciaran Donohoe scoring the goal in stoppage time.

Emmet Og will meet Mullinalaghta or Longford Slashers in the 2020 county SFC title decider on Sunday August 29.
