Last sec­ond goal form Burgess plunges Cork C of I into trou­ble

The Irish Times - Monday - Sport - - Sports -

Ryan Burgess’s last sec­ond goal saw Cork C of I plunge deeper into trou­ble in the men’s EY Hockey League, fall­ing 3-2 to An­nadale to end the cal­en­dar year with­out a win in the com­pe­ti­tion.

David Lynch and John Jermyn strikes from set pieces edged the Gar­ry­duff hosts into a 2-1 lead un­til late in the game.

Burgess, though, has been a stun­ning sign­ing for Dale from Ban­gor. His pro­fi­ciency from penalty cor­ners has given them a ful­crum to their at­tack. He equalised in the first half for 1-1 and then again with six min­utes to go at 2-2.

C of I gave him one fi­nal chance on the buzzer, too, which he whipped in down the glove side for the vic­tory. It lifts them six points clear of rel­e­ga­tion is­sues while C of I are in ninth. In 2018, they have drawn eight times in 14 games.
