Giles stuck in the spotlight once again

Meath SFC quarter-finals

WHAT Trevor Giles can do in Croke Park, he can do at Navan's Páirc Tailteann.

Yesterday the Meath captain drove a penalty wide in this Meath SFC quarter-final but Skryne recovered to avenge last year's semi-defeat by Kilmainhamwood to triumph 1-10 to 1-8. After nine minutes Giles drove his spot-kick wide after Colm Gilcreest had ealier goaled for 'Wood.

'Wood led 1-3 to 0-5 at the break but Giles confidence was not affected as he slotted over four frees.

A very poor opening quarter-final in Navan saw Walterstown defeat Cortown 0-9 to 0-8. The game only came to life when two Cortown players were straight red carded in added time.

Most of the scores in a drab encounter came from frees with Ronan Barry converting four as well as pointing twice from play for the winners, who led by 0-5 to 0-4 at the break.

Reigning title holders Dunshaughlin remain on course for their third final appearance in a row after withstanding a late onslaught from Oldcastle to triumph 3-7 to 2-8.

In another quarter-final on Saturday, Dunderry defeated Trim, 1-10 to 1-3, at Navan.
