Ross Munnelly remains top of the scoring charts in the Laois SFC, as Portarlington's Colm Murphy came up a point short of tying with the Arles-Kilcruise man over the weekend.

Murphy scored 1-3 for Portarlington in Sunday's madcap semi-final with Ballylinan, which moves him onto a total of 5-18. Another point would have seen him tie Munnelly at the top of the charts, but Ross' tally of 3-25 looks like being unmatched, or bettered, this year.

His closest challengers still in action are now Gary Walsh and Paul Cahillane, who trail him by 13 and 12 points respectively. The
