4Mins

Cork 0-2 Dublin 0-0
And a second for Cork. Ruairi Deane and Mark Collins combine to release Sean White who pops over a shot.

5Mins

Cork 0-3 Dublin 0-0
Cork land a third point, Paul Kerrigan on target after that swift break upfield.

10Mins

Cork 0-5 Dublin 1-1
Dublin hit the net and it’s wing-back Jack McCaffrey who gets up for the goal.

Wide then from a free by Cormac Costello from distance.

26Mins

Dublin 1-6 Cork 0-8
Could have been a second Dublin goal there! Again it’s methodical build-up play before Con O’Callaghan explodes through a gap. He blasts a shot over rather than under the bar. Cork counter at the other end with Kerrigan’s third of the evening. They’re not going away from Dublin in this first half.

28Mins

Dublin 1-7 Cork 0-8
Dublin show their capacity to punch holes in the Cork rearguard. It’s Michael Darragh MacAuley this time who makes the break and he finds Ciaran Kilkenny who points. Great goal chance for Cork then at the other end but Brian Hurley drills his shot from close range at Cluxton.
