KILMACUD CROKES HAVE qualified for a second consecutive Dublin SHC final after edging out Lucan Sarsfields, thanks to a Ross O’Carroll goal.

It was a tense encounter between the two sides in Parnell Park, with nothing more than a point separating them for much of the second half.

Early points from brothers Oisín O’Rorke and Barry O’Rorke helped Kilmacud on their way to a 0-09 0-05 lead at half-time, but Lucan rallied after the restart.

The decisive score arrived late into the second half when Ross O’Carroll found the net with a shot.

That 58th minute score pushed Kilmacud into a 1-11 0-12 lead.

Fergal Whitley added a point shortly after to extend Kilamcud’s advantage. Lucan’s Kevin O’Reilly replied with a score before the final whistle, but it wasn’t enough to catch Kilmacud, who came through with a 1-13 0-13 victory.

Having accounted for O’Toole’s in last year’s semi-final, Kilmacud will now look forward to a second successive Dublin SHC decider, where they will hope to avenge for the hurt they suffered against Cuala last year.
