Recap

Cork City FC U17’s began their season away to Waterford Utd on Saturday last and played out a fiercely competitive and entertaining 2-2 draw.

Cork City went ahead after 20 minutes thanks to an excellent solo effort from captain Cian Murphy who is playing his third season for Cork City at this level.

Waterford drew level 15 minutes later from a long ball over the top which was inadvertently headed back towards his own goal by centre back Jack O’Sullivan for the Waterford striker Ciaran Brennan to level up this Munster Derby.

In the second half Waterford wing back Mike Nzongong put the Blues ahead with a fantastic individual effort, albeit against the run of play at the time.

Cork City rallied and were level within 10 minutes when Cian Murphy got his second of the game with a clinical header when he found himself unmarked six yards out.

After this it could have gone either way, both teams had chances to win but in the end both sides were reasonably happy with a point. Dale Holland and Rory Doyle ran the game in the last 20 mins from centre midfield but City just couldn’t find a winner in the end.

Next up for our U17’s is another tough away fixture on Sunday the 2nd April away to UCD
