Moorefield become the front-runners in Leinster with narrow win over Portlaoise
St Loman’s and Simonstown Gaels also advanced to the last four.

GIANTKILLERS RATHNEW WILL be joined in the Leinster SFC club semi-finals by St Loman’s, Moorefield and Simonstown Gaels who all safely navigated their last eight games today.

Moorefield, who’ve become the favourites to lift the provincial title, enjoyed a narrow 1-9 to 0-11 win against Portlaoise in O’Moore Park.

Niall Hurley Lynch kicked a late winner for the Kildare champions in an entertaining game.

John Heslin’s St Loman’s had a point to spare over Longford outfit Mullinalaghta, winning by 1-12 to 1-11. The Westmeath champions were six points behind midway through the second half, but a Heslin penalty propelled them to victory.

Colm O’Rourke’s Simonstown Gaels were comfortable 1-12 to 0-8 winners over Wexford side Starlights in Wexford Park.
