O’Toole’s 0-14

St Jude’s 0-15

ST JUDE’S REACHED their first-ever Dublin senior hurling final after a one-point 0-15 to 0-14 victory over O’Toole’s, and it was subsequently confirmed that they will meet Kilmacud Crokes.

In what was a tense and tight affair throughout, both sides traded points early on, with Ronan Joyce, Andy Morris and Ger O’Meara among the scorers.

However, a couple of points from Conor Carton ultimately gave O’Toole’s some breathing space, as they led 0-10 to 0-8 at half-time.

There was little between the sides after the break as well, with Carton continuing to prove influential, though points from Danny Sutcliffe and Fionn Ó Riain Broin kept St Jude’s well in the game.

As the game progressed, both teams became more cautious, as scores from either side became increasingly rare.

Consequently, a Sutcliffe point in the 56th minute turned out to be the winner, as St Jude’s held out for a historic win.

Ballyboden St-Enda’s 0-12

Kilmacud Crokes 1-16

Kilmacud Crokes defeated Ballyboden St-Enda’s 1-16 to 0-12 in today’s second Dublin senior hurling semi-final.

A closely fought opening meant the teams were level with 0-14 apiece, after 16 minutes, before points from Caolan Conway and Dillon Mulligan helped Kilmacud Crokes establish a significant advantage.

They held a 0-9 to 0-5 advantage at the break, before a goal from Seanie McGrath early in the second half put Crokes in the driving season.

Ballyboden St-Enda’s continued to stay in the game, with Conor McCormack among others contributing points in the second period.

However, Conway continued to make a difference with a number of scores down the other end, as Crokes prevailed by a seven-point margin.
