Cuala march on in Dublin but county champions made to go the extra by Ballyboden

Kilmacud Crokes are also into the semi-finals of the Dublin hurling championship with comfortable win, meanwhile.

Cuala 1-19 Ballyboden 1-14 (aet)

DEFENDING CHAMPIONS CUALA booked their place in the last four of the Dublin senior hurling championship tonight but it was another another late night for them.

They ran out five-point winners over Ballyboden after extra time with the sides ending 1-13 a pieces after normal time.

Ballyboden took control after seven minutes or so when a sideline ball came off a Cuala hand and found it’s way to the net.

Cuala were four points behind after 25 minutes before Mark Schutte was fouled as he headed for goal and David Treacy converted the subsequent penalty.


That made it 1-7 to 1-6 and the sides exchanged points for the rest of the evening with Treacy clinical from placed balls. His four points in extra time saw Cuala pull clear and keep their title defence alive.

Kilmacud Crokes 3-11 Craobh Chiaráin 1-6

KILMACUD CROKES CRUISED into the semi-finals of the Dublin senior hurling championship with a comfortable quarter-final win against Craobh Chiaráin at a sodden Parnell Park this evening.

Two first-half goals from Oisin O’Rourke saw the southsiders establish command early on.

Conor Ryan got one back for Craobh on 22 minutes but Crokes were well ahead at that stage and led by seven points — 2-8 to 1-4 — at half-time.

Kilmacud put any hopes of a Craobh comeback to bed 10 minutes into the second half when Seanie McGrath found the net.

Both sides were also reduced to 14 men, Craobh’s Darren Kelly and Caolan Conway of Crokes both shown red cards for separate off-the-ball incidents.

Crokes, the 2014 county champions, are the first club to advance to the last four of the championship with reigning champions Cuala taking on 2013 winners Ballyboden St Enda’s in another quarter-final at Parnell Park later tonight.

Crumlin take on O’Toole’s at O’Toole Park on Sunday before Lucan and St Jude’s do battle for a spot in the semis at the same venue.
