Canning on form as Tribesmen prove too much for Cork
Galway were six-point winners over the Rebels in Divisions 1A of the Allianz Hurling League.

Galway 1-27
Cork 1-21

JOE CANNING SHOT nine points as Galway got their campaign up and running with a six-point win over Cork in front of 5,768 in this Allianz League Division 1A tie in Pearse Stadium.

It was Galway manager Micheal Donoghue’s first league game in charge, and David Burke first time captaining the side, and they ensured a winning start in a game which also marked Kieran Kingston’s first league match as Cork boss.

Cork, who haven’t won a league title since 1998, trailed 1-15 to 1-9 at half-time after an exciting opening half where there were only eight wides.

Canning led the way for Galway but fellow forwards Cathal Mannion, Niall Burke and Davy Glennon also contributed, with Padraig Brehony and Conor Whelan also linking well.

Five of Cork’s six starting forwards notched scores in the first-half against the breeze. Harnedy’s goal arrived in the 11th minute when he latched onto the breaking ball after Cormac Murphy’s high ball.

That gave Cork a 1-3 to 0-4 lead for the first time in the half. But Galway fought back inspired by captain David Burke and when Canning tapped down his delivery, and the in-rushing Niall Burke goaled after 29 minutes.

Cork and Pa Horgan stormed into the second-half and he hit three in a row, before Galway replied with a five-point rally.

Cork unloaded their bench with Conor Lehane, Cian McCarthy and Daniel Kearney making an impact but it wasn’t enough to prevent the Tribesmen giving their new manager a winning start to the league.
