Penalties were needed last night to separate two teams in the North Premier Intermediate hurling championship.

Late goals from Jason Forde and Ger Leamy saw Silvermines rescue a draw against Kiladangan B, sending the game to extra-time.

With just a few minutes to go in extra-time, it was Kiladangan who needed two goals from placed balls by Darragh Egan to send the game to penalties in Cloughjordan.

Remarkably, the first 6 penalties of the shootout were unsuccessful, with the Silvermines eventually winning 2-1 in the shootout.

Jason Forde led the games scoring, tallying 1-19 in the game.

Elsewhere in the other quarter-finals, Roscrea defeated Newport 2-14 to 0-13 and Portroe beat Ballina 3-11 to 1-16.
