Cuala showed all their prowess when defeating St Jude's 2-27 to 0-16 in their Dublin SHC 'A' Group 2 encounter at Monastery Road, Clondalkin on Wednesday night.
First half goals from Con O'Callaghan and Colum Sheanon along with four points from David Treacy helped Cuala to a commanding 14-point (2-17 to 0-9) interval lead.
Jude's cause was not helped by the dismissal of Tom Devlin early in the second half.
Con finished with a tally of 1-5 while Treacy contributed 0-7, Colm Cronin and Niall Carthy both hit 0-3.
Fionn O Riain Broin scored 0-3 for Jude's with Donie Fox, Shane O'Brien, Diamuid McLoughlin, Paul Maguire and the hard working Danny Sutcliffe contributing to the scoring tally.
Jude's gave battle but were up against a team coming very much back into their best form.
The only worry for Cuala was a facial injury picked up by Darragh O'Connell.
