Callaghan stars as Naas book a quarter final spot

Eamonn Callaghan

An Eamonn Callaghan inspired Naas booked a place in the Joe Mallon Motors quarter final and a repeat date with St Laurence's following the demolition of Raheens at St Conleth's Park this afternoon.

Callaghan was influential throughout and apart from his final tally of 3-4 his overall display was a joy to behold as he constantly used khis vision and kick passing to set up colleagues.

Raheens gave it their all but just did not have the power throughout the ield to trouble Naas.

At half time the boys from the county town led 3-11 to 2-2 but a goal within thirty seconds of the resumption finished off the game and all that was to be decided was the final score line which read Naas 5-19 Raheens 3-7.

Scorers: Naas, Eamonn Callaghan 3-4 ( two penalties), Ronan Joyce 1-5 (2 frees), BrianByrne 1-0, Ciaran Doyle 0-3, Brian Kane 0-2, Ailin McDermott 0-2, Brian Stynes 0-1, Darran Gallagher 0-1, Dean McHolmes 0-1.

Raheens, Paddy Woodgate 2-2 (penalty), Liam Power 1-0, John Jennings 0-2, AlanIgoe 0-2 (1 free), David Malone 0-1.
