Serving up sign of things to come THE 60 SECOND REPORT
Co-op Superstores Munster SHL Colin Guilfoyle’s late goal was the turning point. It was the kind of game which was going to be won by the team which raised a green flag, and the Clare substitute’s quick reaction and crisp strike made all the difference. The quality of the finish. In the final ten minutes Cork looked to have the game in the bag but Clare produced one final effort. Not a game likely to be confused with an outing in the Munster championship, but an entertaining day for all in attendance. For Clare, with the win, and Colin Guilfoyle, Gary Cooney and Diarmuid Ryan in particular. Likewise in the Cork colours, where youngsters like Pa Collins, Robert Downey and Conor Cahalane gave decent displays. Programme buyers. Clare had four changes in personnel, and Cork had five: factor in positional switches and there were a lot of biro squiggles on a lot of programmes before the game even began. Clare improved hugely after half-time, countering Cork’s supply to the inside forward line and pulling the visitors’ full-back line out of position. Banner management also moved Jack Browne to the full-back line when a couple of players picked up yellow cards.
