All Ireland SFC: Dublin cruise to victory

GAA

All-Ireland Senior Football Championship Quarter-Final Group Phase

DUBLIN 2-26 ROSCOMMON 0-14

By Kevin Egan at Croke Park

Another game, another capable opponent brushed aside with ease. Cork may have caused Dublin problems for an hour a week previously, but Jim Gavins side made sure they avoided any such nervous moments at Croke Park as they wasted no time in brushing aside Roscommon over the course of 25 mesmerising minutes of action in the lead up to half time.

Tyrones earlier win over Cork meant that Roscommon needed a win to keep their chances of reaching the All-Ireland semi-finals alive, and while that was always unlikely, the opening 10 minutes suggested that they might be competitive.

Colin Compton kicked a point and might have had a goal from the games first attack, Diarmuid Murtagh sent over a spectacular kick from the right wing and Conor Cox nailed a 45 metre free, though at the other end they struggled to compete with the pace and movement of the Dublin attack and conceded three frees to Dean Rock.

Dublins first point from play came in the 11th minute when Con OCallaghan made a stunning high catch and immediately turned and fired it over from 25 metres, and that was the start of perhaps the most devastating spell of play that any team has produced so far this summer.

Moments worthy of the highlight reel kept coming. Paul Mannion produced a pass of precision and vision to set up an easy finish for Rock, then a flowing move saw the Ballymun player palm in their first goal, with Ciarn Kilkenny and Con OCallaghan both playing quick and inch-perfect handpasses to take defenders out of the game.

Rock continued to build up his tally from dead balls, Con OCallaghan and Paul Mannion struck some magnificent scores, and perhaps the biggest shock of all was Dublins failure to register a second goal. Con OCallaghan struck the post and blasted the ball over in a one-on-one situation, Paul Mannion seemed to have stepped past Darren OMalley but the Roscommon goalkeeper recovered brilliantly to keep his shot out, but Roscommon simply couldnt stop the bleeding as it seemed like nearly every Dublin possession ended in a shot on goal.

Dublins 1-15 to 0-7 half-time lead was no more than a fair reflection of their dominance, and as if the task facing Roscommon wasnt daunting enough, Conor Dalys accumulation of a yellow, black and thus a red card in the space of three minutes just before half time suggested that a landslide win was on the cards.

A stunning solo goal from Michael Darragh Macauley in between three points from Rock 2 and Jack McCaffrey pushed the lead out to 17 and the Roscommon supporters among the crowd of 36,530 were understandably nervous of what might be in store, but their side showed some of the steel that was their hallmark in the Connacht championship, and kicked five of the next six points, with three coming from defenders Niall Daly, Conor Hussey and Sen Mullooly pushing forward to join the attack.

In total Dublin added just one point between the 39th and 62nd minute as they went through an uncharacteristically fallow period of shooting, dropping several scoreable chances short while adding bringing their wides tally for the game up to 10, but they found their groove in the closing minutes again as Paddy Small, Kevin McManamon and Niall Scully all added their names to the scoresheet in advance of their trip to Omagh in a fortnight.

Scorers for Dublin: Dean Rock 1-11 10fs, Michael Darragh Macauley 1-1, Paddy Small 0-3, Paul Mannion, Ciarn Kilkenny, Con OCallaghan and Brian Fenton 0-2 each, Jack McCaffrey, Kevin McManamon, and Niall Scully 0-1 each.
