Wins for Vins, Lucan and Craobh in SHC

Sun, 8th September 2019

St Vincent's set up a quarter-final clash with Ballyboden St Enda's after overwhelming Nh Fionnbarra, 10-28 to 1-11, in their Dublin SHC 'A' Group 3 clash at Parnell Park on Sunday afternoon.

Vincent's had ten different scorers with Cian McBride leading the way with 3-4 from play before being substituted at the midpoint of the second half.

The early signs were ominous for the Barrs and Vincent's stacked up the scores towards the close of the opening half to lead 3-16 to 0-4 at the interval.

McBride got the first of his hat-trick of goals in the second minute when he got a touch to a Conor Burke point effort dropping short.

His younger brother Riain added two points as Vincent's put early distance between the sides.

The Vincent's forward line was combing to telling effect while keeper Dara de Poire gave an exhibition of pucking the sliotar to the advantage of his forwards throughout.

Just before the break Vincent's struck for two goals when Brian Bolger and Cian McBride, with his second, both raised green flags.

McBride's second goal illustrated Vincent's at the best as he fired to the net following great interplay between Tom Connolly, John Hetherton and Riain McBride.

Hetherton was on target from placed balls and finished the game with a personal tally of 0-11 including five frees and two successfully converted '65s'.

There was scant consolation in this tussle for the Cabra side but Eamonn Dillon did score a superb individual goal before the finish when outpacing several Vincent's defenders and rifling low to the corner of the net in the 55th minute.

But for some fine goalkeeping by Tadhg Stone Vincent's would have scored more than ten goals but still the impressive Chris McGarry and sub Alan Moore both netted two second half goals as the Marino men ran out 44-point winners.

In the following game Lucan Sarsfields put in a strong second half to defeat Whitehall Colmcille 2-20 to 1-15 In Group 4 and advance to meet Craobh Chiaráin in their last-eight encounter.

Donal Flannery's first minute goal helped Lucan to a 1-9 to 0-8 lead at Parnell Park with Seán Gray hitting five points for Whitehall (0-2 '65', 0-1f) including two excellently judged long range points from play.

Sarsfields gained the upperhand on the restart with points from Ben Coffey (four, two frees) and Paul Crummey extending their lead with Lee Gannon Whitehall's sole scorer in the opening ten minutes of the second half.

As the game moved into added time Donal Flannery grabbed his second goal of the contest while Eoghan O'Donnell hit a late consolation goal for Whitehall.

At O'Toole Park Craobh Chiaráin, who had already booked their quarter-final spot, defeated St Oliver Plunkett's/Eoghan Ruadh 1-22 to 0-16 in SHC 'A' Group 3.

The Dublin SHC 'A' quarter-finals see Na Fianna face St Brigid's, Cuala meet Kilmacud Crokes, Ballyboden St Enda's up against St Vincent's and Craobh against Lucan Sarsfields.
