Doon edge Ahane to sneak into quarter-finals as Na Piarsaigh secure top spot | Saturday SHC Round Up

All six Group 1 teams were in action on Saturday evening, with wins for Doon, Na Piarsaigh and Patrickswell.

Doon’s clash with Ahane had the most at stake out of all of Saturday evening’s fixtures, with the winner going through to the quarter-finals. Despite the best efforts of Ahane, it was Doon who secured the all-important victory, winning 2-13 to 0-13.

Their class was on show from the off, with Limerick star Darragh O’Donovan landing a fantastic score from a sideline in the opening five minutes.

The first goal of the game fell Doon’s way, coming off the back of a fantastic team move after twenty minutes.

A move which originated with O’Donovan found it’s way to Adam English, who played a 1-2 with former Limerick man Pat Ryan, before sticking the ball in the net.

Darragh Stapleton popped up with a second goal for Doon in the closing stages of the game, giving his side the win despite Ahane’s best efforts.

Elsewhere, Na Piarsaigh managed to see off Kilmallock to secure a semi-final berth, running out five point winners in a repeat of last year’s final.

Patrickswell defeated already relegated Kildimo Pallaskenry, but due to other results they have to settle for a quarter-final spot.

Mungret and one of Ballybrown/Adare will join Patrickswell and Doon in the quarter-finals, to be confirmed tomorrow, with the draw on Monday.
