Round 1 complete and here are all the results from this evening’s Senior 1 Football Championship games
We were served up a great opening course from last weekend’s Senior Hurling Championship. And today was no different with the eight games in Round 1 of the Dublin Senior 1 Football Championship. So here’s all the final scores from this evening’s 6:30 throw ins.
Dublin Senior 1 Football Championship – Round 1
Thomas Davis, who finished last year’s Championship as runners up, got their 2020 campaign off to a healthy start at Kiltipper Road. They welcomed newcomers Round Towers Lusk and got their first win under their belts. A healthy 2-14 to 0-11 victory sees them head to Skerries Harps in Round 2.
Skerries sadly tasted defeat at the hands of Ballymun Kickhams this evening. Ballymun got up and running on home soil with a 3-18 to 0-12 win over their Round 1 opponents and head for Lusk on August 5th for their clash with Round Towers.
The Parnell Park opener between St. Judes and Na Fianna certainly didn’t disappoint. And it was Judes that came away with a 1-10 to 0-08 win over the Mobhi Road men. They head for Marley Park for Round 2 where Ballinteer St. Johns will be looking for better fortune.
Ballinteer headed to the 12th Lock this evening and faced a Lucan Sarsfield side who finished third in their 2019 Championship group. Lucan came away tonight as 10 point winners, on a 0-19 to 0-09 scoreline. They head for Mobhi Road for Round 2 and a tasty clash against Na Fianna.
Reigning Senior 1 Champions Ballyboden St. Endas picked up where they left off last year, with a 4-20 to 2-08 victory this evening against Clontarf in Pairc Ui Mhurchu. The sides were deadlocked at half time but three second half goals from Ballyboden saw them move away for the win.
Whitehall Colmcille and St. Vincents played out a very entertaining clash on Collins Avenue this evening which was a tight affair up to the end. A Mossy Quinn converted penalty at the finish sealed the deal for Vincents with the final score at 2-15 to 1-13 for the Marino Men.
In Round 2 it’s Clontarf and Whitehall squaring off in St. Anne’s Park and Vincents welcoming Ballyboden to Pairc Na Uinsionn.
Kilmacud Crokes made an incredible start to this year’s campaign with a six goal thriller against Raheny. They were 2-08 to 0-04 up at half time, and four second half goals gave Raheny little chance of a comeback.
Castleknock, who were Quarter Finalists last year, got a 2-15 to 1-11 win this evening to start off on the front foot against St. Oliver Plunkett Eoghan Ruadh. A goal either side of half time helped the Somerton home side who head for Raheny in Round 2.
