Story of the game

Irish Examiner - County - - Sport -

With just 12 min­utes left on the clock, Cork se­nior star Brid O’Sul­li­van linked up with Laura Fitzger­ald, and bril­liantly fired be­yond the reach of net­min­der Michelle Hig­gins.

Ca­van ref­eree Mag­gie Far­relly handed out yel­low cards to Car­na­cont rio Doire­ann Hughes, Claire Egan, and Michelle McGing, as well as Mourne­abbey full-back Cathy Ann Stack.

There were 23 min­utes gone in the first half when Mourne­abbey were pre­sented with their first goal op­por­tu­nity. Had Doire­ann O’Sul­li­van’s fierce shot hit the back of the net rather than the post, it would have placed them in a stronger po­si­tion.

Al­though there was a lot of fo­cus on the at­tack­ing tal­ent on show, Car­na­con’s Martha Carter show­cased her ver­sa­til­ity by kick­ing two open­ing -half points. She also proved to be an ex­cel­lent link be­tween de­fence and at­tack for the even­tual win­ners.
