McEnerney goal sees Brigids into SHC quarter final 2012-09-20 09:12:00

Dublin SHC - Last 16 - St Brigids 1-10 St Judes 0-11

Aodhán McEnerney's goal 15 minutes from time proved to be the match-winning score as Brigids overcame St Jude's in Wednesday night's Evening Herald Dublin SHC A play-off at Parnell Park. McEnerneys goal - a long-range delivery that found the net - was enough to set up a quarter-final clash this Sunday against Kilmacud Crokes.

At the end of an evenly balanced opening half the Templeogue men led 0-7 to 0-6 at the interval with Stephen Larkin brilliantly converting two sidelines for the southsiders.For Brigid's Laois senior footballer, John O'Loughlin, was doing well at full-forward and his three points from play over the course of the hour was another large factor in this victory for the Russell Park outfit.

Following McEnerney's goal Neal Mangan did bring Judes level with five minutes to go but the dismissal of Ronan Joyce in the concluding minutes reduced the Jude's threat while points from Paddy McAvinue (free) and O'Loughlin was enough to see Brigid's into the last-eight.

SCORERS - St Brigid's: P McAvinue 0-5 (0-5f), J O Loughlin 0-3, A McEnerney 1-0, K Kellett 0-2. St Jude's: S Larkin 0-5 (0-3 sideline, 0-2f), N Mangan 0-3 (0-2f), C Mangan, R Joyce, D Sutcliffe 0-1 each.
