Vins book a quarter-final spot in style

ST VINCENT'S 0-11

KILMACUD CROKES 1-5

DUBLIN manager Anthony Daly and his cohorts had an early breakfast yesterday. They were in Silver Park for the 10am start as Vincent's preserved their unbeaten run to book a quarter-final spot.

Vins could have won by more. They missed many second half chances while Richie Sweetman made a great save to deny Padraig Fleury.

Vins led by 0-6 to 0-3 at the break. Three Tom Connolly returns had given them that interval advantage, and four early second-half points meant that Vins had hit seven without reply -- Tom Connolly, Stephen Loughlin, Fleury and Mossy McGrane on target. Crokes came back with a goal from Barry O'Rorke, but it was the last score of the day.

SCORERS - St Vincent's: T Connolly 0-5 (4f, 1 '65'), P Fleury, S Loughlin, T McGrane 0-2 each.

Kilmacud Crokes: B O'Rorke 1-0, S McGrath 0-2 (1f), C Clinton, A de Paor (f), K O'Loughlin 0-1 each.

Peadar finishes off brave Faughs

O'TOOLE'S 1-18

FAUGHS 1-12

O'Toole's bounced back from defeat against Kilmacud to power past Faughs thanks to a fine display from Dublin star Peadar Carton.

Carton struck for a well taken goal with 10 minutes remaining.

Faughs will regret a series of first-half wides and a loss of composure in the second half after an off-the-ball incident left full forward Padraig Ryan needing a blood substitution on for a head injury just before the goal.

SCORERS -- O'Toole's: P Carton 1-3, M Carton (4f) 0-5, D Farrelly, K Horgan 0-3 each, M Cunningham 0-2, G Morris, P O'Donoghue 0-1 each. Faughs: F Heavey (7f) 0-8, P Ryan 1-0, C McCann 0-3, C Ahern ('65) 0-1.

O'TOOLE'S: B McLaughlin; P Brennan, K Wilson, C Mulligan; G O'Meara, L Ryan, J Bastow; M Carton, C White; P Carton, M Cunningham, P Bradshaw; P O'Donoghue, D Farrelly, K Horgan. Subs: B Carton for Brennan (8), G Morris for Bradshaw (h-t), A Morris for Horgan (58), D Webster for Mulligan (58).

FAUGHS: M Ryan; M Devaney, D Burke, C Heavey; S White, M O'Brien, M Connolly; C Ahern, K O'Brien; E Toomey, C McCann, P O'Donoghue; F Heavey, P Ryan, C Brennan. Subs: C Crowley for O'Donoghue (40), R Crowley for Brennan (51), E Roche for Toomey (58).
