Second Half decisive for Cork
Cork 2-09 Donegal 1-10
On Saturday evening down 1-10 to 0-05, all looked lost for Cork with twenty minutes left in this senior football contest. No one had told Liam Hanley’s charges that however and a number of astute substitutions helped to sway the domination with both Cathel Hatzer and Conor Hunter hitting the net. It all started so different. Cork were ahead 2 to 0, when Donegal started their run of dominance, They had seven of the next nine points with Brian Connor and Conor Lynam the scorers, Three for the midfielder, four for the forward. It left the side in a 0-07 to 0-04 interval lead. They followed a Dan Doona point with a further 1-03 with Connor crashing the ball to the net after a large parallelogram skirmish. They were now up 1-10 to 0-05 and home free they thought. Cork rebounded in the best way possible. Two goals the first from Cathel Hatzer, the second from a Conor Hunter penalty when Peter Hatzer was fouled, made a game of it. Ger McCarthy added a brace of points before Jason Kelly and Naill Coleman a screamer completed the improbable comeback.

Tyrone steals it
Tyrone 2-09 Kerry 1-11
Tyrone looked lost and gone at the half time whist;le on sundayy as they trailed 1-09 to 0-03. It all changed dramatically however as they made a brilliant comeback to get the win. Kerry had scored three of trhe first four points before Peter Atkinson snatched a goal when Darren Moore found hinm with an excellent pass. Daryl O’Brian added two fifty yard points while Robbie Moran was firing over frees. All looked good for trhe Kingdom. Both sides added two to their total in the first ten minmutes of the second half but then the Red Hand started to move. Arthur McConville added two frees before Greg Jordon had a brilliant goal with 18 minutes on the clock. Kerry were kicking wides or being stopped by good play from Darren Jackson and Darren O’Hagan then Jordon and O’Hagan brought Tyrone within two with points. When Phil Toner drove a long ball goalwards with five minutes left, no danger seemed imminent. However the ball went past the full back and forward and bounced to the net past Ger O’Sullivan for the lead. The winners withstood two furious Kerry attacks and held on for the important victory.
