Recap

Cork City were 5-0 winners against St. Mary’s at Turner’s Cross on Friday night. Goals from Josh O’Hanlon, Tobi Adebayo-Rowling, Karl Sheppard, and a brace from Kieran Sadlier saw the Leesiders capture the Munster Senior Cup.

A David Vs. Goliath clash, St. Mary’s were up against it from the first whistle. John Caulfield’s men went on the attack from the opening minute and didn’t let up for the duration of the game.

Conor McCarthy had a header flash across the face of goal in the fifth minute. In the tenth, Michael Howard turned his man and had a shot from distance that went narrowly wide. Two minutes later Karl Sheppard had a go from the edge of the box, but it was straight down the throat of St. Mary’s goalkeeper Ryan Delaney.

The first goal came a minute after the quarter hour. The ball fell to Barry McNamee inside the St. Mary’s box and Delaney could only parry his half volley. The ball fell to O’Hanlon and he made no mistake with the tap in.

The Leesiders kept up the onslaught. McNamee had a shot in the 20th minute which Delaney got down well to save. Buckley had an effort from distance on the half hour mark, but it didn’t dip in time to trouble the Mary’s netminder.

A minute after Buckley’s effort O’Hanlon had a header from point blank range that was denied by a top class reaction save from Delaney.

City had two more chances before the interval, with Howard shooting wide from six yards out and Buckley drawing another good save from Delaney.

John Caulfield’s men continued where they left off after the break, playing the majority of the game in the St. Mary’s half.

In the 57th minute Colm Horgan cut inside from the left and sent a curling effort at goal, but he saw it go wide of the far post. In the 65th minute McCarthy saw a header go narrowly wide.

The second goal came six minutes after the hour mark. Tobi Adebayo-Rowling got down the right and his shot took a wicked deflection off Cian Murphy, wrong footing Delaney.

The third came four minutes later. Substitute Kieran Sadlier deftly nutmegged his man before sending a powerful, looping shot over the outstretched hand of Delaney.

Sadlier got his second of the night in the 83rd minute. Played through by he coolly slotted home past the keeper.

The Leesiders added a fifth in the final minute of the game. A good dribble down the left from Sadlier saw him find Sheppard 12 yards out, side-footed the ball home despite the attempts of the defenders on the lines attempts to keep it out.

A tough night for St. Mary’s, this win saw Cork City collect their second piece of silverware of the season, after their President’s Cup win in January.
