Vincent's impress as Boden put to sword

ST VINCENT'S maintained their impressive early season form as they confidently accounted for previously unbeaten Ballyboden St Enda's by 2-14 to 1-7 in their Dublin Adult Football League Division 5 encounter at Páirc Uí Mhurchú on Sunday morning.

With the sides level at the break, Vinnies assumed control in the second-half with goals from the lively Alan Moore and James Cooke augmenting strong performances by Conor Matthews, Barry Cole and Greg Murphy.

Vinnies are joined at the top of the table by Thomas Davis and Round Tower Lusk who both enjoyed comfortable home victories over Fingal Ravens and Erin's Isle respectively.


At the opposite end of the table, Ballinteer St John's registered their first win of the campaign when overcoming Naomh Barróg by 0-12 to 0-4 in Páirc Barróg.

Andy Dolan, Philip Denmead and Martin Sorohan all impressed throughout for the visitors who claimed their deserved win through points from Frankie Ward, Stephen Reilly, Paddy Corcoran, Johnny O'Brien, Niall Dunphy and Ronan Clabby.

In AFL6, St James' Gaels registered their third successive win with two goals from Darragh Kelly proving pivotal in their narrow 3-7 to 0-14 win over Clontarf at the Iveagh Grounds.

Keith Hendrick chipped in with the hosts' third goal with Gaels indebted to strong displays from full-back Shane Walsh as they held on by two points.

Meanwhile, at Lawless Park, goals from Mark McSherry, Wayne Byrne and Ben Keyes proved pivotal as St Peregrine's defeated league leaders Fingallians by 3-4 to 0-9.

The away defence were exceptional throughout with John Maye, Conor Mackey and David Lynch putting the shackles on a talented home forward line.
