Tight at the top of scoring charts as Laois SHC nears conclusion

With the Laois SHC semi-finals played over the weekend, the race to be crowned top-scorers is set to go to the wire.

The current leader is Borris-Kilcotton sharpshooter PJ Scully, but he is only three points ahead of Rathdowney-Errill's Mark Kavanagh. The Rathdowney-Errill man will get one more game though, as he will be lining up in the final in two weeks time, so he will be expected to move into top spot.

Behind him, Zane Keenan is in third place, but would need a huge haul in the final to bridge the gap.

In the 'From Play' section, Rathdowney-Errill have five players in the top ten, as their free-scoring wins over Castletown Gaels and Abbeyleix saw them fill their boots.

We also have top scoring midfielders, defenders and goalkeepers, scroll down for into from all sections, as each club is represented in at least one category.
