Cork 00-13 Down 00-11
The Defending league and All-Ireland Champions wrapped up their Division 2 Littlewoods Camogie League with a two-point win over Down in a repeat of last year’s All-Ireland Final.
From the get go Cork set the tone of the game and the way they dominated the play with some lovely scores coming from Caoimhe Harney, Michelle Murphy, and Hayleigh Ryan’s placed balls saw them run into a 0-8 to 0-3 lead at the break.
Both teams were evenly matched after the re start going score for score, but overall the champions had so much class and so much skill on the day and were well deserving of their two-point victory.
Cork team: Stefanie Beausang, Ashling Moloney, Caitlin Looney, Ciara Daly, Edel Lonergan, Maeve Lynch, Ellen O’ Regan, Michelle Murphy, Isobelle O’ Regan, Caoimhe Harney, Rachel Harty, Kate Wall, Hayleigh Ryan, Kate O’Keeffe, Aoife Hurley.
