ST VINCENT’S 2-10 KILMACUD CROKES 0-12
St Vincent’s three in-a-row hopes may have been extinguished by Boden but they captured the Dublin AFL Division 1 title when overcoming Kilmacud Crokes in UCD on Sunday afternoon.
Shane Carthy’s 14th minute goal following good work by Tomás Quinn helped Vinnies to a 1-6 to 0-5 interval cushion.
Seven minutes into the second half the double act of Diarmuid Connolly and Tomás Quinn combined for Mossy to make it 2-6 to 0-6 for the Marino men.
However, Crokes battled back with Brian Kavanagh firing three points but they had left too much ground to make up as Vincent’s secured the league title.
