OTOOLES 1-10 ST PATS, PALMERSTOWN 0-11
OTooles made it two wins from two starts in the Evening Herald Dublin SHC A Group 2 but were pushed all the way by their hosts in Glenaulin Park on Wednesday night.
It took two late points from Dublin senior Peadar Carton to guarantee OTooles victory while his 12th minute goal proved to be the only one of the night.
Despite the concession of the goal Pats battled back and were on top towards the close of the first half with a superb point from Liam Rushe helping to bring the sides level, 1-3 to 0-6, at the interval.
