Since losing out to St Jude’s at Somerton Park on March 16, Castleknock have been in imperious form. At the same venue on Wednesday, they squeezed past St Vincent’s on a scoreline of 1-19 to 3-11.  With Rob Shaw and Tom Quinn driving forward from the back, the home side got off to a fast start, with a flowing move palmed to the net for the opening goal.  Vins responded well and got back into the game with two goals in quick succession approaching half time. The first was a Tomás Quinn penalty and the second a well taken finish from Sean Lowry to leave his side just 2 points behind at the break.  

Castleknock started the second half with good scores from play to open up a lead. But it was Lowry again who brought his team back into it with another high quality finish after a direct run.  Vins pushed hard to get level and only a great reflex save from Conor Kelly denied Sean Lambe a goal for the visitors in the closing stages. 

This was Castleknock’s seventh win on the bounce and it keeps them in third position, a single point behind Na Fianna.
