Cork Under-21 footballers ease past Limerick
Cork remain on course for a fourth successive Munster under-21 football title and their ninth in 11 years with a comfortable win at a misty Páirc Uí Rinn last night.
Three goals in a 10-minute burst highlighted Cork’s opening half’s superiority, with Mark Sugrue, Alan Cadogan and Dan MacEoin supplying the finishing touches.
The first came after nine minutes, when Sugrue’s powerful run took him past the defence before slamming home from close range. Cadogan pounced on a breaking ball for the second, six minutes later, before Seán Kiely and Cadogan combined for MacEoin’s 20th-minute effort.
Limerick did manage the closing two points of the half through a Danny Neville free and Mike Fitzgibbon from play.
Cork resumed where they left off on the resumption, Cadogan pointing inside 30 seconds and again in the 38th minute after a neat one-two with MacEoin. Limerick could only muster two more points in the half, their night reflected in Fitzgibbon’s late effort crashing against the crossbar on its way over.
