Flying Fianna continue to set fast pace

NA FIANNA continued their unbeaten start to Division 1 of the Dublin Adult Football League when they comfortably accounted for St Mary's of Saggart, 1-13 to 0-11, at O'Toole Park last night.

The Mobhi Road men now sit four points clear of at the top of the table with David Quinn's 40th minute goal a pivotal moment after a tight opening half in which the St Mobhi Road side led by 0-6 to 0-4 at the interval.

Blaine Kelly kicked two fine points for St Mary's, enjoying a good tussle with John Kelly, while Colm Finn, Faughna Boland and Denis Carrigan all featured prominently for the Saggart outfit who were largely dependent on the placed ball prowess of Eoin Murray and David Marshall for scores.

However, it proved insufficient with Quinn's goal and three points from Adam Caffrey handing Na Fianna a healthy lead and they held on without any great alarm thanks to the defensive efforts of Niall McGovern, Kelly and wing-back Ronan Breen who all showed well throughout.

AFL1: St Mary's, Saggart 0-11 Na Fianna 1-13.
