East Cork Ladies’ Football Senior Team (Imokilly) Bow out of senior county championship
Senior Championship Round 2 West Cork Ladies 3 22 East Cork Ladies (Imokilly) 0-09
The senior ladies from East Cork (Imokilly) were comprehensibly beaten by a strong, well drilled West Cork outfit at Sam Maguire Park in Dunmanway on Sunday evening. The West Cork girls had a nice blend of youth and experience including six members of the Cork All Ireland Minor team as well as three Cork seniors on their starting fifteen. Imokilly also had four Cork Minors and Three Cork seniors but unfortunately had several players out of action through injury so it was always going to be a tough ask.
From the outset the West Cork girls set down a marker scoring three goals two from the boot of ace forward Sadhbh O Leary and five points in the first fourteen minutes and try as Imokilly might they could not make any impression trailing at the break by 3-09 to 0-04.
Imokilly to their credit did not give up and played some fine football in the second period against the wind but on the night there was just no stopping the ladies from West Cork as they went on to amass a total of 3-22 to 0-09 By virtue of this win and as they also defeated North Cork the West Cork Ladies now go into the quarter finals of the County senior Championship
Well done and many thanks to all the girls from Imokilly who trained, travelled and gave of their all for their division Thanks also to Mike Hannon and all the selectors for all their time and efforts through out the season Congrats to West Cork and many thanks to those who provided a welcome cup of tea and a sandwich for all after the game.
