St Peter's goalscorer Aidan O'Connor
Dunboyne......1-15 St Patrick's......0-9 Dunboyne advanced to the last eight of the Meath SFC for a fourth straight year following this commanding performance against St. Pat's in the splendid sunshine and facilities at Donaghmore/Ashbourne. The foundations for the progress were laid in the first half, at the end of which Declan Mahon's team led by 0-10 to 0-05. Four of their front line had got off the mark by that stage while outstanding midfielders Craig Berrigan and Nigel Crawford also registered booming efforts before the break and Gary Waters stole forward for the first of a brace too. Michael McQuillan's side enjoyed their best times at the beginning of conclusion of the second period but at every other stage Dunboyne were dominant and Aidan O'Connor franked this fact when netting late on to set up a quarter final joust with Summerhill.
