ST JUDE'S 0-13 ST BRIGID'S 0-9
Whether for county or club Kevin McManamon continues to deliver the goods as his eight-point tally steered St Jude's to victory in this Dublin SFC second round duel at O'Toole Park on Saturday evening.
The Tymon North outfit will now face Na Fianna in their last-eight encounter after an impressive victory over Brigid's.
Jude's laid their platform for victory in the opening half. The early exchanges were evenly balanced before a Jude's scoring flurry put distance between the sides coming up to half-time.
Colm Murphy, Kevin McManamon (two) and Tom Lahiff were on target to move four points clear.
By the interval they had extended their advantage to 0-9 to 0-4.
However, Brigid's made an encouraging start to the second half with Paddy Andrews and Philly Ryan on target to reduce the deficit to just two points.
But it was to be Jude's day with McManamon's deadball accuracy driving them on to victory.
