Mem­o­rable dou­ble but Kan­turk hun­gry for more

Irish Examiner - Sport - - GAA -

Cork IFC fi­nal Kan­turk in 2017 re­peat Ban­don’s 2016 dou­ble, while Black­rock/st Michael’s and Mal­low both reached two fi­nals too – it’s pos­si­ble for dual clubs to thrive. Mitchel­stown’s first three points were con­densed into the first three min­utes – their next three came as the first half moved to­wards in­jury time. Mitchel­stown crowded the mid­dle in the first half and were re­warded with the bulk of the pos­ses­sion but couldn’t con­vert that into scores.

Kan­turk brought Ai­dan Walsh out from full-for­ward in the sec­ond half and reaped re­wards. Ryan Walsh scored three points for Kan­turk and was in­volved in the build-up to at least as many more.

Alan Long used the ad­van­tage rule ju­di­ciously and was sen­si­ble with his dis­tri­bu­tion of cards.
