CCFC 1-2 Dundalk

Cork City’s attempts at a four-in-a-row President’s Cup win were scuppered tonight after a 2-1 defeat at the hands of Dundalk at Turner’s Cross tonight.

In front of President Michael D. Higgins, Dundalk  opened the scoring in the 36th minute. The goal came from a set-piece as Dane Massey rose highest to meet Michael Duffy’s corner kick and drill his header into the back of the net.

The Lilywhites doubled their lead in injury-time at the end of the first half and Duffy was again the creator as his inch-perfect cross from the left flank allowed Patrick Hoban to expertly head in from a few yards out.

City rallied in the second half and they reduced the deficit in the 65th minute when substitute Kevin O’Connor – back at the club on loan from Preston North End – curled a brilliant free-kick into the top left corner from 25 yards out.

But it wasn’t to be The Leesiders’ night as Dundalk hung on to open the 2019 season with a win and claim the President’s Cup for the first time since 2015.

Cork City will open their league campaign next Friday night as they travel to St Patrick’s Athletic.

Referee: Robert Hennessy.

Attendance: 2,777.
