Well done to Abbie Hoare and Lily Murray, part of the Cork under 14 football squad that beat Waterford in the Munster semi-final on Saturday. The game was played in Ballinameela, Co. Waterford on a crisp dry afternoon.

Playing with the wind in the first half, Cork got off to a good start with three early points from Orla Deasy, Sophie Thompson and Orla Cahalane. Waterford scored the next point which was quickly answered by a point from Lucy Callanan. However, despite their best efforts, Cork were unable to score for the remainder of the half and Waterford notched up three more points leaving the teams level with four points apiece at the half-time whistle.

Cork came out very strong in the second half and an early goal from Lucy Callanan gave the team a much-needed boost. Orla Cahalane followed up two minutes later with her second point of the game and in the 42nd minute, Alanna Gould scored a goal, followed by a point a minute later. A third point from Orla Cahalane put the Leesiders nine points up with five minutes to go.

However, Waterford found another gear and scored two well-worked goals so that only three points separated the teams as the game entered injury time. Waterford continued to threaten and it was a tense few minutes before Orla Deasy scored the insurance point that saw a relieved and happy Cork team progress to the Munster Final. This game will be played on the 21st April; details to be confirmed.
