St Jude’s kept their hopes of qualification from SFC1 Group 2 on track with their second win of their campaign when defeating Ballinteer St John's 0-14 to 0-8 in Marlay Park on Wednesday night.
Four first-half points from Kevin McManamon helped Jude's to a 0-7 to 0-4 lead at the break but they were also thankful to keeper Paul Copeland who denied Eoghan Joyce from the penalty spot just before half-time.
Also in SFC1 Group 2 Na Fianna rebounded from their disappointing loss to Jude's last time out by defeating Lucan by 11 points, 1-23 to 1-12, in St Mobhi Road.
Aaron Byrne, with 1-7 including frees, and Conor McHugh were the scorers-in-chief for the home side with Byrne grabbing the Na Fianna goal with Eoghan McHugh, a younger brother of Conor, impressing at midfield.
Dean Rock and Paddy Small continued where they left off last time out by kicking 2-11 in the opening half on the way to Ballymun Kickhams' 3-26 to 1-10 victory away against Round Towers, Lusk. The 'Mun were out of sight by half-time when leading by 16 points, 3-13 to 0-6.
Cameron McCormack did well at midfield for the victors while Lusk relied heavily on Cormac Howley for scores.
In Group 3 Clontarf defeated Whitehall Colmcilles 3-12 to 0-15 in St Anne's Park with Kevin Lillis and Morgan Walsh hitting first-half goals as they led 2-5 to 0-4 at the interval.
Kilmacud Crokes amassed another big tally, following the six goals they hit against Raheny in their opening round-robin game, when beating St Oliver Plunett/Eoghan Ruadh 3-20 to 3-8 in Martin Savage Park.
Dara Mullin was central to Crokes victory as a goal from the inside forward and two from Hugh Kenny had his side 3-10 to 1-5 in front at the break.
Seán Bugler, who finished with 1-4 overall, got the Plunkett's goal in the opening half.
The accuracy of Paul Mannion and Shane Cunningham kept Crokes on the front foot early in the second period with Seán O'Connor and Cillian Hayes kicked Plunkett's second-half goals.
Raheny bounced back from their heavy defeat to Crokes first time out with a 0-16 to 1-10 victory over Castleknock at St Anne's Park with Brian Fenton, Brian Howard and Seán McMahon doing well for the home side and Gavin Ivory kicking eight frees while Conor Chawke kicked the Dublin 15 side's goal.
