CRUMLIN 2-13 FAUGHS 3-10
A storming finish by Faughs saw them snatch a share of the spoils in this Evening Herald Dublin SHC Group D clash at OToole Park on Sunday. Faughs led 2-5 to 0-7 approaching at half-time thanks for first half goals from Paul Donohue and Cathal Heavey.
But just before the interval Shane Martin rattled the net for Crumlin.
In the 22nd minute of the second half a long-range effort from Peter Elliott finished in the net for the second Crumlin goal. Points followed from Elliott and Martin to suddenly put Crumlin five clear but back came Faughs with points from Conor McCann (two) and Johnny Small and a second goal from Heavey to edge in front. But in the final moments Craig Gough equalised for Crumlin.
