Bernard Brogan inspires Plunkett’s; wins also for Jude’s and Skerries in SFC

Fri, 8th May 2015

St Oliver Plunkett's/Eoghan Ruadh's Bernard Brogan tormented St Peregrine's as he inspired his side to a one-sided, 5-15 to 0-9, victory in Thursday night's SFC first round clash at Russell Park.

The Dublin forward tallied 2-7 in a superb personal display, all bar one point coming from open play, while Dublin U21, Niall Walsh, also hit a brace of goals in the Navan Road outfit's facile win.

The game was only 15 seconds old when Bernard beat Peregrine's keeper James Kelly - an ominous early sign for the Dublin 15 men for whom Robbie McCarthy kicked 0-7 (0-5f) and Eric Lowndes 0-2.

Paul Brogan netted Plunkett's second goal and a flurry of points before the interval from Gareth Smith (two), Niall Walsh, Ross McConnell and Alan Brogan made it 2-11 to 0-4.

Niall Walsh's goals came in the 34th and 43rd minutes before Bernard Brogan completed his tally with his second goal a minute from time.

At Bohernabreena St Jude's had little difficulty overcoming St Mary's of Saggart when running out convincing 3-20 to 0-8 victors.

Declan Donnelly's ninth minute goal put the Tymon North men on their way and by the half-time break they had extended their advantage to 1-12 to 0-3.

Tom Larkin added a second goal in the 43rd minute and before the conclusion Dublin U21 Diarmuid McLoughlin completed the rout.

Balgriffin hosted the tightest battle of the net when Skerries Harps were thankful of their excellent opening to defeat O'Toole's 1-15 to 1-9.

Inside the opening quarter a dominant Skerries opened up a 1-6 to 0-1 lead with Mark Boylan getting their goal.

However, the Larriers responded well and by the break Ciaran Kimmage's goal ensured they were very much in the contest though trailing 1-9 to 1-5 at half-time.

O'Toole's cut the deficit to as low as two points in the second period before Skerries finished strongly with points from brothers Graham and Bryan Cullen and Barry Davey to secure victory.
