Minutes later another sublime pass from Geraghty found big brother Davy which resulted in Summerhill’s second goal . Half Time 2-05 Navan 0-3.
Despite 2 fine points from Dardis on the restart The Navan side did creep back into this game 2-08 to 0-8 on the 45th minute . Excellent defending from Iarla Hughes and Willie Ryan steadied Summerhill . A well timed move by Cian Devlin who found David Larkin resulted in a brilliant goal. While Navan were competitive to the end Summerhill continued to punish them . A fourth goal and a second for Davy Dalton in the dying minutes had Summerhill sailing back to the top of Group B.
