DUNGARBAN 1-27 MOUNT SION 0-24
The Curran brothers, Patrick and Colm, helped Dungarvan to a six-point triumph over Mount Sion in Fraher Field this afternoon.
Patrick hit 0-11 (0-7 frees) while Colm Curran hit over 0-5 from play to make sure that Peter Smith’s side made it two wins from two games on their way to the quarter-finals, where they will face local rivals Abbeyside next weekend.
After an open first-half it was a goal by Michael Kiely in the closing stages of the first period that helped Dungarvan to a 1-13 to 0-10 interval lead.
With Martin O’Neill leading the way Sion did get within a goal of Dungarvan but the green flag they needed never came and with Gavin Crotty making a big impact off the bench it was the men from the west who left the city venue with the win.
Mount Sion will take on Pasage in the last eight.
ABBEYSIDE 3-21 BALLYDUFF UPPER 0-9

Goals by Richie Foley, John Elsted and Michael Kiely left the Villagers 3-11 to 0-6 up at half time. They blitzed Ballyduff 2-6 to 0-2 in the second quarter. Kiely had 1-3 to his name by the break while Mark Ferncombe fired five points (he would finish with seven).
