DUBSTV have chosen the best five scores from this year’s Dublin SHC Quarter Finals
Kilmacud Crokes 0-19
St. Judes 0-14
Anthony Daly’s Kilmacud side got through their Quarter Final clash with St. Judes to run out winners by 0-05. Oisin O’Rorke and Fionn O’Riain Broin shared the honour of top scorers on the day. But it was fantastic strike by Jude’s Donie Fox that caught the eye of DUBSTV for the opening score. This second half score came from a long ball caught by Kevin Treacy who stared the move. Passing to Joyce who laid it in front of Donie Fox to finish it cleanly.
Score number three in the collection came in the first half. Ryan O’Dwyer caught a ball coming in from Judes and shot long and high into the corner. It was met by Ronan Hayes. Hayes cleverly shook off his marker and slotted the ball over the bar from a very narrow angle to make the score 0-04 to 0-02 for Crokes.
Ballyboden St. Endas 3-21
Ballinteer St. Johns 0-18
Ballyboden St Enda’s were more that comfortable victors over Ballinteer St John’s in their Quarter Final in Parnell Park. Paul Ryan and Conal Keaney put in a massive shift for Boden with tallies of 1-11 and 2-01 respectively.
In the second half with Ballinteer down 2-16 to 0-09, Tom Aherne did exceptionally well to take down and control the cross ball that was sent his direction. He turned his marked with ease and sent the ball high and over the bar to keep the board ticking over for his side.
Na Fianna 1-12
St. Vincents 1-14
St Vincent’s dug deep in the second-half to see off Na Fianna in the first of this years Quarter Finals. In very evenly matched contest throughout it was in the last twenty minutes that the game finally opened up. Colin Currie netted for Na Fianna to give them a lead, but Vincent’s sub Alan Moore got the response his side needed to edge the game out and the Marino men eventually overcame their Mobhi Road rivals
Not long after Moore’s goal Sean Currie got on the end of a beautiful high ball and sent it into the night sky, squeezing it over the bar to get Na Fianna back within a point of their opponents.
Lucan Sarsfields 2-13
The quest for Cuala’s fourth consecutive Senior A title was still on the cards as they comfortably beat Lucan Sarsfields in the last of the Quarter Finals. Con O’Callaghan was on the money once again for Mattie Kenny’s side, bagging 1-02 in an accomplished display by the Dalkey side.
Early in the proceedings Sean Tracey attempted a surging run and passed the ball ahead to Jake Malone who made no mistake from just inside the half way line to score a massive point to put Cuala 0-03 to 0-01 ahead.
