Dublin v. Cork - NFL Result

DUBLIN 1-13 CORK 0-7
Thank God for an end to winter football as the Dubs excelled under lights in Parnell Park on Saturday night. In a blistering opening 25 minutes a Sherlock inspired Dublin raced to a 0-07 to no score start. Jayo retired with an injury, hopefully not too serious, but Dublin remained the best of the two teams until the final whistle. Bryan Cullen outshone Ger Spillane as the best CHB on show, Keaney and Mossy back to form with Henno outstanding in defence. Dublin eased off and Cork picked up a few late scores which hopefully will not come to haunt us when places in Div. 1 for next year are finalised.

DUBLIN - Stephen Cluxton; David Henry (0-01), Ross McConnell, Paul Griffin; Barry Cahill (Coman Goggins 65mins), Bryan Cullen, Ger Brennan (Paul Casey 60mins); Darren Magee, Ciaran Whelan; Colin Moran (0-01), Jason Sherlock (0-01) (Dermot Connolly 25mins (0-01)), Bernard Brogan (Shane Ryan 60mins); Conal Keaney (1-04), Kevin Bonner (Jonny Magee 65mins), Tomás Quinn (0-05).

CORK - P O'Shea; O Sexton, M Shields (M Prout 55mins), K O'Connor; N O'Leary, G Spillane, A Lynch (0-01) (S Levis 65mins); D Kavanagh (C McCarthy 65mins (0-01)), D Hurley (M Cussen 55mins (0-01)); S O'Brien, N Murphy (0-01), D Goulding (A O'Connor 20mins); J Masters (0-01), D O'Connor (0-01), K O'Sullivan (0-01).
