Recap

This game was a must-win for Shelbourne and the pressure was evident at Tolka Park as Cork City made it extremely difficult for The Reds.

The home side started off quick, nearly going ahead just a minute into the game but Leah Doyle was judged to have been offside. Cork hit back however, with Christina Dring getting close and hitting the crossbar on 13 minutes.

It was Cork who opened the scoring at Tolka through a Becky Cassin penalty after Zara Foley was taken down in the box by Leah Doyle. Cassin made no mistake with penalty, firing into the top left corner.

Shelbourne managed to get one back just before the break, with Cassin putting the ball into her own net following a fantastic Alex Kavanagh corner kick. Cork probably feeling unlucky not to be going in at half-time ahead.

The second half consisted of Shelbourne looking for the winner, with Cork City holding their defence well. Although Shelbourne really had most of the possession, Cork did look threatening on the counter attack.

It was Megan Smyth-Lynch who was the hero for The Reds as in the 87th minute, she struck a wonderful effort from outside of the box to make it 2-1 to the Champions. Shels keeper Courtney Maguire also deserved plaudits for saving a certain goal for Cork in the dying moments of the game.
