McManamon goal helps Jude’s into semis

McManamon goal helps Jude's into semis


A huge third quarter, which saw St Jude’s score 1-5 without reply, helped the Templeogue men past Skerries Harps in the Dublin SFC at Parnell Park.

The sides were level at the break but, with the help of county start Kevin McManamon’s goal, the 2018 finalists booked their spot in the semi-finals on a 1-17 to 1-10 scoreline.

In the day’s other last-eight clash, Kilmacud Crokes were 4-15 to 1-12 victors over St Vincent’s.

Staying on the east coast, Diarmuid Barry’s early major set St Martin’s on their way to a two-point victory over Starlights in Wexford.

Two goals from Darren McHale sealed a surprise win for Knockmore over three-in-a-row chasing Ballintubber in Mayo.

McHale’s second strike in the 50th minute gave the underdogs a crucial four-point lead in the quarter-final clash and they closed it out 2-11 to 0-12.

Elsewhere, Mohill became the first side into the Leitrim SFC semi-finals after thumping Allen Gaels by 3-16 to 2-09 at Avantcard Páirc Seán Mac Diarmada. 

Leitrim forward Keith Beirne hit 2-07, both of his goals coming in the first half as Mohill built an unassailable 3-08 to 0-03 interval lead. 

Caleb Duffy netted twice for Allen Gaels during the second period.

Fenagh St Caillins joined Mohill in the last four later on Saturday evening after thanks to a 2-14 to 1-08 win over Leitrim Gaels. 

Up the road, Aaron Tierney and Ruairí Corrigan struck for early goals as Kinawley beat Erne Gaels to advance to the semi-finals in Fermanagh.

In Tipperary, goals either side of half-time set Kiladangan up for an eight-point victory over Toomevara.

When the third three-pointer arrived from Joe Gallagher just over five minutes later, the lead was seven, and the north-Tipp club weren’t to be denied from there.
