Croal the Glencar/Manor ace

County man Adrian Croal led Glencar/Manor to victory when he shot eight points from play for the four-in-a-row Leitrim champions in a low key 0-14 to 1-5 win over Allen Gaels in Carrick-on-Shannon.

Declan Gilhooly, who hit four points, was Allen Gaels best performer.

In Saturday’s second quarter-final in Carrick, favourites Melvin Gaels struggled before overcoming Bornacoola (0-11 to 1-7) with an injury-time point by top marksman Emlyn Mulligan.

After a whirlwind Bornacoola start in which Damien Moran hit a goal, Michael Duignan and Philip Howard adding a point each, the Bors held the lead until the 38th minute. Following that it was a tit for tat with the Gaels scraping home.

In what was an impressive display Kiltoghert/St Mary’s had a runaway 1-16 to 0-9 win over Mohill in a one sided third quarter-final in Carrick yesterday. St Mary’s led by 0-10 to 0-4 at the break and a Michael McWeeney goal within four minutes of the restart killed the game as a contest. Mohill’s best player Ronan Kennedy hit 0-5 from frees.

Meanwhile in the last closely fought quarter-final in Carrick yesterday an injury time point from Annaduff top player Sean McNabola earned his side an 0-9 draw with Aughawillan.

Aughawillan had taken a one-point lead five minutes earlier in this nip and tuck clash when their top marksman Morgan Quinn pointed a free.
