Cork defeat Limerick in the Allianz Football League Division 2 Round 4

Allianz Football League Division 2

Cork 6-18 Limerick 0-12

Had you been told a Cork team would rack up 6-18 in this SuperValu Páirc Uí Chaoimh double-header, the smart money may well have been on the hurlers.

Instead, for the second time this season, Cork ripped one of their Munster rivals asunder with a goal-scoring blast.

This 24-point triple-scores demolition will mean more than the five goals they drilled into an understrength Kerry team just back from their holidays in a McGrath Cup opener.

Not only does this first home League win lay down a marker for a potential Munster semi-final rematch down the line, it means Cork can look up the table as winless Limerick are left needing a Houdini act to avoid relegation to Division 3.

Cork midfielders Ian Maguire and Colm O’Callaghan had goals inside the first 15 minutes while Seán Powter and Brian Hurley soon joined them as all four registered 1-1.

Chris Óg Jones (0-6) and Steven Sherlock (0-5) added 11 points but it was substitute Conor Corbett who stole the show in the second half, never missing an opportunity to impress as he scorched 2-1 onto the scoreboard.

A whopping 6-16 of Cork’s total came from open play.

The first major came in the ninth minute. Hurley played an enticing ball to Jones who skinned his marker and laid it across for Maguire to finish. 1-1 to no score.

Powter blazed just over the bar when in on goal four minutes later but Cork fans among the 7,347 double-header crowd only had to wait two more minutes for the next goal.

Ruairí Deane, an early substitute for Brian O’Driscoll, fed O’Callaghan to complete a devastating counter-attack.

Limerick replied to both early goals with back-to-back points to leave it 2-3 to 0-4. But Cork’s midfield dominance saw them land the next three, with Jones and O’Callaghan claiming high catches as Maguire, Sherlock, and Jones hit the target.

Daniel O’Mahony had a rare own point when palming the ball over to avert any danger of a goal.

At the other end, Eoghan McSweeney was fingertips away from gathering Hurley’s sumptuous pass for a third goal but it came in the 33rd minute, Mattie Taylor and Tommy Walsh bursting forward and providing for Powter to tidy home.

Cork finished with another 1-2 in stoppage time, McSweeney returning the favour with a pass for Hurley to blast home. Hurley and Taylor points stretched it out to 4-9 to 0-6 at half-time.

Ray Dempsey made three changes and although Killian Ryan teed up Brian Donovan to crack the crossbar within a minute, it couldn’t change the course of the game.

Two minutes later, Corbett latched onto a long ball and buried his first senior inter-county goal past Donal O’Sullivan.

When Sherlock added a free, it made it 5-11 to 0-6, the first 5-10 having all come from open play.

Cillian Fahy came forward to kick Limerick’s next three points but Jones had four in response, taking his tally to 0-6, while he forced a save from O’Sullivan. Deane tapped in the rebound only for it to be chalked off for a square ball.

Cork never let up as Sherlock hit the crossbar in the closing stages and O’Sullivan tipped over a dipping Corbett effort.

Corbett provided the final flourish, turning his man inside-out before drilling under O’Sullivan to complete a trouncing that will leave scars in the Limerick camp for some time to come.

Scorers for Cork: Conor Corbett 2-1; Chris Óg Jones 0-6; Steven Sherlock 0-5 (2f); Colm O’Callaghan, Ian Maguire, Seán Powter, Brian Hurley 1-1 each; Mattie Taylor, Eoghan McSweeney 0-1 each.

Cork defeat Westmeath in the Allianz Hurling League Division 1 Group A Round 3

Allianz Hurling League Division 1

Cork 2-21 Westmeath 0-21

First-half goals from Shane Kingston and Shane Barrett set Cork on their way to victory over Westmeath at SuperValu Páirc Uí Chaoimh on Sunday.

However, while the Rebels are now within touching distance of a semi-final spot after picking up a third straight win, they didn’t have things all their own way against the Lake County. A seven-point half-time lead for Cork was extended to nine early in the second half but a spirited response from the visitors saw them come to within five points on two occasions. Unfortunately for them, the third consecutive loss leaves them bottom of the Division 1 Group A table.

Cork led throughout, with Kingston opening the scoring in third minute with his goal, set up by a good Tommy O’Connell pass. Though former Galway man Davy Glennon replied with Westmeath’s first point, six points on the trot for the Rebels – with debutant Ben Cunningham, Brian Hayes and Conor Cahalane all on target – put them firmly in control.

Even though Westmeath came back well as Killian Doyle proved accurate from dead balls, the second Cork goal, set up by Ethan Twomey and Hayes for Barrett to finish, made it 2-9 to 0-6 with eight minutes left until half-time.

A third goal might have resulted but Noel Conaty saved well from Kingston, however even though Westmeath reduced the deficit slightly before half-time, Cork were comfortable with a 2-11 to 0-10 interval lead.

That margin was extended further with points from Barrett and Kingston but Westmeath had five of the next six scores, all from Doyle, who brought his tally to 13 as the lead was reduced to five.

After Cahalane’s third point, Cork sub Pádraig Power had a good chance for another goal after Twomey picked him out but he didn’t make good enough contact and Conaty saved.

A superb sideline cut from Jack Galvin again brought Westmeath back to within five but they couldn’t reduce the arrears any further and suffered the lose of Doyle to injury.

The visitors never really looked like getting a goal and Cork were able to pick off late points to ensure that they stayed on top until the end.

Scorers for Cork: Shane Kingston 1-7 (0-6 frees), Shane Barrett 1-2, Conor Cahalane 0-3, Brian Hayes, Pádraig Power 0-2 each, Cormac O’Brien, Ethan Twomey, Cathal Cormack, Tommy O’Connell, Ben Cunningham 0-1 each.

Scorers for Westmeath: Killian Doyle 0-13 (0-11 frees), Jack Galvin (0-1 sideline), Ciarán Doyle (0-2 frees) 0-2 each, Davy Glennon, Shane McGovern, Darragh Clinton (0-1 free), Robbie Greville 0-1 each.

CORK: Patrick Collins; Eoin Roche, Niall O’Leary, Ger Millerick; Cormac O’Brien, Tommy O’Connell, Dáire O’Leary; Sam Quirke, Ethan Twomey; Ben Cunningham, Luke Meade, Conor Cahalane; Shane Kingston, Brian Hayes, Shane Barrett. Subs: Eoin Downey for Millerick (half-time), Cathal Cormack for Dáire O’Leary (45), Pádraig Power for Cunningham (49), Dáire Connery for Quirke (61), Colin Walsh for Barrett (67).
