DIVISION 3 TO 7 ROUND-UP
The race for the Division 3 title took a back seat at the weekend following the death of St Patrick’s Donabate goalkeeper Eoghan ‘Bohs’ Moloney on Friday.
As a result of Moloney’s tragic passing, his club’s fixture with St Mary’s Saggart on Saturday was postponed.
St Margaret’s secured their place in the Division 3 promotion play-offs with victory over St Patrick’s Palmerstown on Saturday evening.
In Division 4 Clann Mhuire turned in their best display of the season as they recorded a 2-20 to 2-10 win at home to Ballinteer St John, with Adam Rogers registering 0-12, while Ronan Reilly raised a green flag in the first half.
Man O War belied their league position when coming from six points down to record a draw away to St Sylvester’s at Broomfield, with a 1-1 return from Kieran Fleming - including a terrific point struck with the outside of the boot – kick-starting the comeback.
In a blistering 10-minute spell a super goal from Martin Power along with a point from James Kelly put Man O War three in front.
And although they subsequently went a point down, Man O War levelled at 2-12 apiece right on full-time in a game where there were massive performances from Monaghan man Con Devlin, Matthew Cassin and Sean Hussey.
In Division 5 goals in each half from Killian Ryan and James Doyle secured a 2-22 to 0-7 win for St Finian’s Swords at home to St Monica’s.
In Division 6 O’Dwyer’s were 5-17 to 1-6 winners over Wanderers, with Cathal O’Rourke grabbing a brace of points inside the first five minutes.
Dylan Andrews, having been introduced as a blood sub, then found the back of the net as O’Dwyer’s took a 2-11 to 0-1 lead heading into the breeze in the second half.
On the day there were great performances in defence by Cian Griffin, James Keenan and Stephen Crawley.
Bill Staunton gave a commanding performance at midfield, while Jamie Lawler and Dan Dan Doherty were a thorn in Wanderers’ side throughout, with substitute John Clarke scoring 1-1 including an impressive 45 into the wind.
In Division 7 Garristown received a walkover against Beann Eadair and consequently moved a step closer to securing the title.
