MHL 2 Kilmacud Crokes 3-15 St Sylvesters 4-14 A rousing win having been six behind with 10 minutes remaining, Colm Byrne simply decided to change things as he drove through for two excellent goals. Conor Dwyer added the winning points while Killian Power and Thomas won the balls that mattered in defense to give us a most satisfying win. It was a good game for us from the start as Crokes had some fine hurlers, as usual, but we stayed with them throughout and it was only in the last quarter that they seemed to have us beat before Colm intervened.
SHC B Erins Isles 1-17 St Sylvesters 1-14 We recovered very well from a very slow start but couldn't quite finish it off and Isles pulled away in the last quarter. Isles striking into the wind in the first half was excellent and they opened up a good lead into the wind before a few positional changes got us going and we got back to a one point deficit, 10 to 9 at the break.

This was a very hard fought victory and the girls had to show great belief.
