Colin Healy: Fantastic display

 

Galway United 1 Cork City 3

Cork City controlled the game at Eamonn Deacy Park. There were just too good for Galway United and maintained their impressive away form so far this season.

It was a fantastic display from captain Colin Healy and the goals also came from influential members in the display. Dan Murray, Billy Dennehy and Garry Buckley struck with Jason Molloy’s goal a consolation but a scintillating effort.

Jake Keegan had a few early chances for Galway before Sam Oji almost sent the ball into his own net when John Kavanagh swung in an inviting cross.

In the 11th minute Billy Dennehy sent in a free-kick that Murray headed home to give Cork the lead. Just before the break Dennehy whipped in another free-kick that ricocheted off Colm Horgan to give Cork a 2-0 half-time lead.

Molloy pulled one back for Galway in the 47th minute with a stunning strike and then Galway began piling on all the pressure.

However, they couldn’t find the equaliser and another poor piece of decision-making saw Gary Shanahan sky his cross after he turned the Cork defence. Galway were punished for their lack of accuracy in the 80th minute – Healy swung in a corner and Buckley was on hand to find the net.

GALWAY UNITED: C Gleeson; C Horgan, S Oji, S Walsh, M Ludden; G Shanahan, D O’Leary, R Connolly, J Molloy; J Keegan, E Curran (P Cunningham, 81 mins).

CORK CITY: M McNulty; J Kavanagh, D Dennehy, D Murray, K O’Connor; L Kearney (K Sheppard, 59 mins), C Healy, L Miller (R Gaynor, 84 mins), G Buckley, B Dennehy; M O’Sullivan (M McSweeney, 79 mins).

Referee: D McKeon (Dublin)
