ROUND-UP: Go Ahead Adult Hurling League Division 1- 12th March

Mon, 13th March 2023

St Vincent's did just enough to see off a determined St Oliver Plunkett/Eoghan Ruadh by 3-12 to 2-14 in their entertaining Go Ahead Dublin Adult Hurling League Division 1 encounter in Broombridge on Sunday morning. 

In doing so, the Marino outfit claimed top spot in the table after two rounds with John Hetherton proving their scoring talisman once again with a personal tally of ten points.

While Hetherton's presence on the scoreboard was of little surprise, the goal scored by Gavin Burke in what was his first hurling match in ten years raised a few eyebrows.

The visitors were placed under a fair degree of pressure throughout but coped admirably through strong displays at the back from Sean Lambe, Simon Gormley, Conor Dolan and Callum Walsh while Paddy Gilroy competed well at midfield.

For Plunkett's, it was a tough defeat to take after losing to Na Fianna by a similar heartbreaking margin in Round 1 but there were plenty of positives to take from the day.

Rónán Ó Broin impressed at midfield in addition to clipping over a brace of points while Ger Ryan looked sharp at corner-forward in addition to finding the Vinnies net.

Conor Scully and Éanna Boland coped well at the back but their efforts and those of substitute Denis McSweeney, who scored their second goal, proved in vain by the final whistle.

Cuala also remain unbeaten, a point behind the leaders, as they defeated Naomh Barróg by 2-14 to 0-12 in Páirc Barrog.

Eoghan O'Callaghan and Simon Timlin delivered consistent performances at the back for the visitors, who kept their noses in front through the scoring contributions of Jamie Conroy and Conall O'Toole.

In Clonshaugh, a strong first-half showing helped Craobh Chiaráin to record a welcome 1-13 to 0-11 victory over St Brigid's.

Eoin Forbes set the tone with two early scores as Craobh raced into a four point lead and they maintained that momentum to enter the break with a 0-10 to 0-3 advantage.

Within a minute of the resumption, Cian Derwin pounced for an excellent goal and while St Brigid's kept in touch through the performances of Eoghan Dunne and Johnny McGuirk and the free-taking of Paul Winters, but with Billy Ryan looking back close to his best at the opposite end, Craobh held on by five points.

Jason Higgins starred at the back for the winners while Stephen O'Brien was another to show well in an absorbing personal duel with Dunne.

Unfortunately, the weather was the deciding factor in the other three scheduled games with Faughs v Na Fianna, Kilmacud Crokes v Ballyboden St Enda's and Lucan Sarsfields v St Jude's called off due to unplayable pitches.

GO AHEAD AHL 1 RESULTS: Faughs v Na Fianna OFF; Craobh Chiaráin 1-13 St Brigid's 0-11; Kilmacud Crokes v Ballyboden St Enda's OFF; St Oliver Plunkett's/ER 2-14 St Vincent's 3-12; Naomh Barróg 0-12 Cuala 2-14; Lucan Sarsfields v St Jude's OFF.
