Saturday, October 12th 2019
St. Judes v St. Vincents (5:15pm)
Ballyboden St. Endas v Na Fianna (7:00pm)
This evening sees the first two Dublin Senior 1 Football Quarter Finals take place in Parnell Park in Donnycarney. Four teams will battle it out for the first two Semi Final slots. The first game will see St. Judes and St. Vincents battle it out. And that will be followed by the clash between Ballyboden St. Endas and Na Fianna.
St. Judes v St. Vincents
St. Vincents’ 4-13 to 1-10 victory over Ballinteer St. John’s in the final round of Group 4 saw the Marino side book their slot in today’s action. A half time score of 2-07 to 1-04 saw Vincents in front, but Ballinteer finished the half with a goal and a point to close the gap.
Goals in the second half from Diarmuid Connolly and Enda Varley aided Vincents drive to the final whistle with Ballinteer only registering six scores in the half.
Their opponents St. Judes finished top of Group 3 after finishing last year’s championship as beaten finalists. An opening day draw with St. Oliver Plunkett Eoghan Ruadh was followed by victories over Raheny and second placed Thomas Davis. An additional time goal from Diarmuid McLoughlin secured their win over Thomas Davis in a tight contest with the final score at 1-09 to 0-08.
Ballyboden St. Endas v Na Fianna
Ballyboden went three for three in the Group 2 table, with a strong 2-20 to 0-06 win over Skerries rounding off the treble. Leading by six points at half time, Boden kicked six scores on the bounce to push them 1-14 to 0-03 taking the game out of Skerries reach.
A first half goal from Aran Waters and one in the second from Ryan Basquel kept Skerries on the back foot for the entire game.
Na Fianna went unbeaten in Group 1, topping it off with a 0-13 to 0-08 win over near rivals Ballymun Kickhams. The men from Mobhi Road were by far the stronger side in the last game, but poor shooting and the goalkeeping antics of Sean Currie will have let them down.
With ten minutes remaining, Na Fianna had a slender 0-08 to 0-07 lead over Ballymun, but they kicked on scoring the next three scores giving them the momentum they never let go of.
