Round Up: Go-Ahead AFL 3 & AFL 4 - June 8th & 9th

Mon, 10th June 2024

Naomh Fionnbarra put daylight between themselves and the chasing pack as they edged St Anne’s by 3-4 to 0-12 in their thrilling Go Ahead Dublin Adult Football League Division 3 in Bohernabreena on Sunday morning.

The leaders looked set for just their second defeat of the season but a patient build-up in the dying seconds allowed Glen Dodrill the chance to fire an unstoppable shot into the roof of the net, prompting will celebrations and more importantly, moving the Cabra side three points clear at the top.

That they enjoy such a buffer is a result of Trinity Gaels suffering their third loss this year as they succumbed to Clann Mhuire by 4-10 to 2-12 in Drumnigh.

Adam Rogers proved Clann’s match-winner with a personal tally of 2-4 while Eanna Reynolds (1-2), Billy Reilly (0-3) and Finn Harmon (1-0) also made valuable scoring contributions for the visitors.

Na Fianna moved into joint fourth spot by virtue of their comfortable 1-22 to 2-7 victory over Cuala at St Mobhi Road.

Keith Doran and Daniel Day were the pick of the home defence and with Adrian Neville plundering their goal, the hosts gradually built up a healthy lead thanks to the scoring returns of Jack Burke, Thomas Connell and Sean Patten.

Elsewhere, Templeogue Synge Street remain in the promotion mix as they beat Ballyboden St Enda’s by 0-10 to 0-7 while St Maur’s picked up a resounding 4-15 to 1-10 over Castleknock.

Go Ahead Dublin AFL 4, St Finian’s Swords enhanced their promotion ambitions as they edged fellow challengers Ballinteer St John’s by 1-14 to 0-14 at Ridgewood Park on Saturday afternoon.

The return of Dublin Under 20 hurler Senan Crosbie has proved hugely beneficial to the hosts and he emphasised his importance to the team when kicking four points from play.

Scott Brennan was also to the fore as he scored 1-5 from placed balls and with Conor Halpin, Lee Kavanagh, Conor Cooley and Dylan Grey also chipping in with scores, St Finian’s held on thanks to a superb save from goalkeeper Stephen McNally in the closing stages.

St Finian’s Newcastle eased their relegation concerns as they pipped promotion hopefuls Thomas Davis by 1-12 to 1-11 in Newcastle.

The foundation for their victory lay in an impressive defensive showing, one in which the likes of Diarmuid Guthrie, Richard Scott and Josh Aherne all excelled.

At the opposite end, Conor McCarthy top scored with 1-3 with Jamie Power, Brady Tobin, Lar Harney and Aidan Burke also kicking key scores by the final whistle.

St Mark’s also enjoyed a welcome success towards the foot of the table as they defeated Fingal Ravens by 3-13 to 1-11 in Rolestown.
