Kilmacud Crokes 1-28 / St Brigid’s 2-9

Kilmacud Crokes turned their clash with St Brigid’s totally around on their way to an impressive 1-28 to 2-9 win in Group 3 at Parnell Park on Sunday.

Inside the opening 10 minutes the Stillorgan side were eight points in arrears but recovered from the slow start to eventually run out 16-point victors.

By the half-time break Crokes had got back on level terms and they dominated the second half to make it two wins from two starts following their opening round victory over holders Cuala.

Seven minutes into the second half Alex Considine’s goal really got Kilmacud motoring when he powered through on goal before batting to the net past keeper Alan Nolan.

Ronan Hayes continued to keep the scoreboard ticking – he finished with a tally of 0-11 (0-7f, 0-2 ‘65’) – while Lorcan McMullan, the impressive Oisín O’Rorke and Fergal Whitely all hit four points from play..
