St Jude's and St Mark's play out Tymon classic

St Jude's and St Mark's will have to do it all again as they shared an absorbing 1-26 to 4-17 draw after extra-time in their Dublin Junior Hurling Championship quarter-final at Tymon Park last Wednesday evening.

The high-quality encounter was adorned by a superb display of poaching from Dublin's David O'Callaghan with 'Dotsy' finishing the night with 4-3.

Two goals from O'Callaghan and a brace of scores by Joey Cannon helped the visitors to a 2-7 to 0-8 interval as St Mark's benefitted from the dogged midfield displays of Robert Glynn and Ciaran O'Shea.

However, the hosts clawed back their deficit upon the resumption through points from Mark Hannon, Ciaran Quigley, who notched eight points over the hour, Colm Manning and Sean McLaughlin and although O'Callaghan completed his hat-trick after the break, the sides remained deadlocked at 1-18 to 3-12 after sixty minutes.

The visitors enjoyed a period of dominance for the second-half as they benefited from the contributions of Karl Lanney, Graham Whelan, Robert Kenny, Ryan Farrell and goalkeeper Colm O'Shea but a flurry of excitement at the death failed to separate the sides.

"It was a great game to watch," said St Mark's manager David Kearns.
