DIFFERENT competition, same old story as Dublin opened their round-robin campaign in the inaugural EirGrid Leinster U20 football championship with a runaway 16-point victory over Longford at Glennon Brothers Pearse Park tonight.

There was no doubting the star of the Sky Blue show – Kilmacud's Dan O'Brien, the only starting survivor from last year's All-Ireland U21 triumph, tallied an incredible 1-9 from play.

O'Brien already had 1-5 to his name by the break, at which point the visitors led by 2-11 to 0-8. He opened Dublin's goal account with a slick eighth minute finish and, just two minutes later, Tom Keane fisted home their second from point-blank range.

SCORERS - Dublin: D O'Brien 1-9, T Keane 1-1, S Bugler, C Howley, C Archer (1 '45', 1f) 0-3 each, J Doran, J Madden 0-1 each. Longford: T McGann 0-5f, P Lynn, S Farrell, A McKeon (f), I O'Sullivan, R Hawkins, R Harkin 0-1 each. 

DUBLIN – D O'Hanlon; N Nolan, N Doran, C Smith; K Kennedy, N Matthews, E O'Dea; D Ryan, E Fitzpatrick; S Bugler, D O'Brien, J Madden; J Doran, C Howley, T Keane. Subs: C Hynes for Keane (36), J Holland for Fitzpatrick (48), M Mullin for Kennedy (51), C Archer for Howley (55), K Lynch Bissett for Madden (57), S Farrelly for O'Dea (60).

LONGFORD – C Gallagher; K Gilmore, G Flynn, M McCormack; C Lee, M Cahill, S Farrell; E Farrell, C McElligott; I O'Sullivan, P Lynn, N Farrelly; R Hawkins, T McGann, A McKeon. Subs: D Duggan for Cahill (ht), R Harkin for O'Sullivan (38), R McHugh for McElligott (46), S Campbell for McCormack (48), R Claffey for Farrell (55), A McGee for Hawkins (59).
