The turn­ing points

Irish Examiner - Sport - - CAMOGIE -

The women in red and white be­gan well and were the clear lead­ers in en­ergy in the early stages, lead­ing five points to one af­ter 15 min­utes. They were quicker to the breaks and won ruck af­ter ruck, while in Gemma O’con­nor and Ais­ling Thomp­son they had the dom­i­nant per­son­al­i­ties of the match, who man­aged to get to the pitch of the game faster than their op­po­nents. Cork needed a very late win­ning point - very late in­deed but they were in con­tention at that stage on the back of that storm­ing opener.
