Keo­hane’s early strike sets Cork up for vic­tory

The Irish Times - Sports Weekend - - SOCCER -

Cork City got their first league win since Au­gust 3rd after prov­ing to be too strong for Lim­er­ick at Turner’s Cross last night.

A goal from man of the match Jimmy Keo­hane after 91 sec­onds pro­vided the per­fect start for his side, though they needed a good save from Peter Cher­rie to deny Danny Mor­ris­sey scor­ing an equaliser be­fore half-time.

The lead was dou­bled eight min­utes into the sec­ond half as Keo­hane bril­liantly set up Kieran Sadlier, who sidestepped on­rush­ing goal­keeper Tommy Hol­land and fired home.

If it wasn’t for Hol­land’s im­pres­sive form the mar­gin would have in­creased fur­ther.

In in­jury time, how­ever, City did get a third as Aaron Barry con­verted Sadlier’s cor­ner to en­sure there was no way back for Lim­er­ick.
