Busy Weekend of Provincial Action   02/10/2017

Confey defeated St. Lomans to book a spot in the Leinster SFC semi-finalsSaturday was a busy afternoon across the province as the Leinster Club Championship Quarter Finals were played at Intermediate and Junior grades.

In the Intermediate Championship, Dublin's good fortune continues as St. Maurs defeated Naomh Ciaran by 4-10 to 2-11. Despite the journey, Longford's Clonguish were convincing winners as they defeated St. Martins of Wexford by 2-15 to 1-03. Laois supporters will also be celebrating this evening as Park Ratheniska booked their place in the semi-finals with a 6-10 to 3-05 win over Louth's Stabannon.

In the Junior Club Championship, Dublin's Cuala lay down a marker as they overcame their visitors Kilerly/Dowdalshill by 7-21 to 1-04. In Longford, hosts Dromard defeated Wicklow side Tinahely by 3-15 to 1-06. However, the game of the afternoon must go to the meeting of Kilkenny City and Carbury where a late late Carbury goal was enough to see the Kildare side through to the semi-finals despite Kilkenny City leading for much of the contest. It ended there Carbury 3-08, Kilkenny City 3-06.

On Sunday, Kildare Senior Champions Confey proved too strong for Westmeath Champions St. Lomans winning out on a 4-10 to 1-13 scoreline. Confey were well in front at half time – leading by 4-06 to 1-01 but a revitalised St. Lomans pushed the Lillies all the way in the second half. Confey will now go on to play Wexford Senior Champions St. Annes in the semi-final on the weekend of the 14th October.

The Aisling McGing u21 Championship is officially under way with the opening round of fixtures now played. In a closely fought contest, Kildare were unlucky to finish second with Armagh finishing the stronger in Lurgan while in Clonberne Longford suffered defeat in their opening round to Galway. Undoubtedly Galway will be one to watch, having won the All Ireland Minor titles in the last number of years.

In the all Leinster clash, it was the Royals who finished the stronger, goals winning the game - Meath winning on a 3-12 to 1-12 score line.
