Cork make it thirty on the trot



CORK 3-7 Kildare 0-8.

Cork made it an incredible 30 wins on the trot when they
defeated Kildare on Sunday in the final game before the
knockout stages of the Suzuki National league. Star of the
show on this occasion was Laura McMahon from Rosscarbery
a newcomer to the panel this year, she fired in two precious
goals one in each half her first came early on with another
from Valerie Mulcahy propelling Cork to a 9 point interval
lead. To their credit Kildare put up a good show in the
2nd period but another McMahon goal around the half way
mark virtually sealed the points from Cork.

Tracy Noone did get 4 back for the Lily whites but the mini
comeback was thwarted by Mary O’Connor who finished them
off with 4 superb points. Cork without too much fuss and
bother have qualified for the quarter finals and three more
victories would give them 3 league titles in a row.

2nd string win also Cork 2-7 Dublin 0-4

Meanwhile the 2nd string are moving nicely after a comprehensive
win in the opening game of the new Senior B competition
against Waterford, they faced a much stiffer test against
Dublin on Sunday last. In very bleak and windy conditions
Cork. Powered by Mairead Kennedy, Siobhan Buckley and Elaine
Burke in an outstanding full back line Cork were slow to
settle and although the Dubs opened the scoring. Niamh Hickey
quickly put Cork back on terms. It was even steven for the
opening period and the sides were level at the short whistle
on there points.

Cork upped the ante in the 2nd half and were rewarded when
Louise Crowley hit he net after god approach work by Lisa
McSweeney. Next it was the turn of team debutante Sharon
Whelton to get on the score sheet. A Lisa McSweeney goal
made the points sure for the rebelletes and Annie Walsh
put the icing on the cake with a brace of points.
