Saturday, August 27th
Dublin Senior 1 Hurling Championship
Group 1
St Judes 2-13 (19) Cuala 2-23 (29)
Na Fianna 0-13 (13) Ballyboden St. Endas 0-20 (20)

A third straight win for Cuala in the Senior 1 Hurling Championship spells the end of the road for St. Judes who suffered a fourth straight defeat. And that’s the last action Judes will see as they are on their bye in teh final round. Cuala were 6 point leaders at half time on 1-13 to 1-07 and added another 1-10 to their tally. Judes to their credit registered 1-06 in the second session making a proper competition of the tie. But ultimately Cuala had turned the screw enough over the hour to win comfortably.

Ballyboden St. Endas also made it three wins from three in the second Group 1 game yesterday evening with a 0-20 to 0-13 over Na Fianna, leaving the Mobhi Road men trailing the pack with only one win in the competition so far. Boden raced into a huge advantage, leading by 0-11 to 0-01 at the half time break. Na Fianna had a much better showing in the second half but the defecit was always going to be difficult to restore and 9 second half scores was more thn enough to secure a win for Ballyboden who will face Cuala in the final round to decide the group winner.

Group 2
Craobh Chiarain 2-11 (17) St. Brigids 1-24 (27)
Kilmacud Crokes 1-24 (27 )Lucan Sarsfields 0-18 (18)

St. Brigids secured their first championship win yesterday, beating Craobh Chiarain by 1-24 to 2-11. And despite some great scoriong tallies for Craobh Chiarain in this year’s competition, that was their fourth consecutive defeat and the end of their championship. Brigids have drawn with St. Vincents and lost to Kilmacud Crokes so will be hoping to end positively against Lucan in the final Round.

Kilmacud Crokes are in pole position following their third straight win yesterday, beating Lucan Sarsfields by 1-24 to 0-18. But it’s all to play for facing Vincents in the final round. The Stillorgan side held a 7 point advantage over Lucan at O’Toole Park yesterday evening, and chalked up an additional 11 points on the restart. Lucan’s only win to date in the championship was against Craobh Chiarain in Round 2 and they’re up against a tough final round game against Brigids in the final round on September 10th.
