Cork Minors and U-14 progress in Munster

Minor Munster Championship- Cork Minors progress to Munster

The Cork Minor team qualified with ease for the Munster final
last Saturday, when they destroyed Waterford in Ballyduff.
Cork as is widely known are the current All-Ireland champions
at this level and undoubtedly in the running for the title
again this year.

The Rebels’ started the better with a point from Tara Galvin
and soon after Laura O’Mahoney blasted home Corks first goal.
Waterford however awoke and slotted home 1-2 without reply.
But Cork were never in doubt and settled there after with
some superb link play.

Scores were easy to come by as the Waterford backs slumbered,
leaving the score line 3-11 1-2 at the half. Corks defence
was good considering they had little to do and only allowed
the Deise notch two points in the second. The dual players
were substituted throughout and those who came in put the
icing on the cake.

Remarkably sixteen players got their names on the score sheet
as Cork fired home 1-10 in the second to ensure a place in
the Munster final.

Scorers for Cork:
L O’Mahoney 2-1, G O’Flynn 0-6 (0-2frees),
K Richards 1-3, M O’Neill 1-2, C O’Donoughue, N Keohane, B
Stack, E O’Riordan, C Foley, L Power, T Galvin, S Burns and
R Buckley (0-2 each), B Corkery, M Murphy, and A O Sullivan
(0-1 each).

Subs: K Richards for S Burns, C O’ Connell for C Foley,
C Walsh for E O’ Riordan, C O Sullivan for R Buckley and A
Dempsey for M O’ Neill.

Munster Under-14 Championship

The Cork U-14 team eased their way passed Tipperary in the
third round of the Munster championship in Erins Own last
Saturday. Aided with the breeze, Cork settled immediately
and the slaughter began. Great passage of play among the forwards
saw them notch 3-12 0-1 before halftime.

At midfield Ashling Thompson and Ciara McGrath drove forward
and created many problems for the Tipp defence. Defensively
Cork played well however gave away a penalty which was initially
denied by Cork goalie Christine Lehane and deflected over
the bar. Cork finished 7-17 in front and should be confident
of a place in the final.

Scorers for Cork: M O’Riordan 2-1, C O’Callaghan 1-4,
K Sheehan 1-3, R Buckley and G Kearney 1-1 each, C Lucey 1-0,
C McGrath 0-3, V Hallahan 0-2, E Ahern, M O’Callaghan, A Thompson,
C O’Sullivan, A O’Donavan and J Russell 0-1 each.
