Kilmacud made work all way by Parnell’s

Sat, 13th May 2017


Kilmacud Crokes were pushed all the way by Parnell's before eventually emerging victorious in this Dublin SFC second round at Blakestown Road on Friday night.

A second half flurry of points at the three-quarter mark from Callum Pearson, Conor Kelly, Mark Vaughan, Shane Cunningham and Pearson again gave Crokes just about enough breathing space as they progress to the last-eight of the competition.

But they had to work hard for their reward with Parnell's starting impressively with an early goal from Pearse O'Hanlon.

Soon after Stephen Duffy added a point for the Coolock side before points from Paul Mannion (pictured), Pat Duggan and Conor Kelly brought the sides level, 0-4 to 1-1.

Jonathan Bealin's free edged Parnell's back in front before three Vaughan points without reply helped his side to a 0-8 to 1-3 interval lead.

The came Crokes crucial flow of scores, kicking five in-a-row to put themselves in a winning position.

Parnell's battled to the finish before sub Tom Fox's point ensure there would be no late shock at the home of St Peregrine's.
