Scoil and Fingallians bow out of Leinster HC

Scoil and Fingallians bow out of Leinster HC

Mon, 4th November 2019

There was disappointment on the double for Dublin's representatives, Scoil Uí Chonaill and Fingallians, in Leinster club action on Saturday.

Dublin senior hurling 'B' champions, who defeated Round Tower, Clondalkin in a play-off to represent the capital in the Leinster IHC were defeated 2-11 to 1-7 by Wicklow senior champions, Bray Emmets, in Joule Park, Aughrim in their provincial quarter-final.

Bray bolted from the blocks and led 2-5 to 0-1 inside just 12 minutes with goals from Davy Maloney and Pádraig Doyle on their way to a commanding 2-10 to 0-2 interval advantage.

An early second half goal by Scoil's Barry Cushen briefly raised their hopes but they had left themselves with too much to do.

In the Leinster JHC Kilkenny's Conahy Shamrocks were too strong for Fingallians, winning 2-17 to 1-9 in Lawless Park, Swords on Saturday.

The opening exchanges were evenly balanced with the freetaking of Fingallians' Seán Hickey seeing the sides level, 0-4 each, after 15 minutes.

However, a successfully converted penalty saw the Kilkenny side lead 1-11 to 0-7 at half-time.

Conahy Shamrocks dominated on the restart with Darragh Power getting a late goal for Fingallians.
