Cordal v Glenflesk: Bill Tangney Cup Round 1

Cordal played Glenflesk on Tuesday in the Barradaubh Community Field as part of the first knock out round of the East Kerry Bill Tangney Cup.

The first half saw Glenflesk quickly on top scoring a series of seven points and kicking a number of wides.

Cordal got into the game in the eighth minute with a point scored by Kieran O’Donoghue. This trend continued for Cordal with the team adding four more points to their tally.

Disheartening Goal

A Glenflesk goal proved disheartening for Cordal but Tim O’Donoghue found a way to make things right again scoring a goal for Cordal in the 29th minute. The half time score was 1-6 to Glenflesk’s 1-10.

The second half proved less competitive with Glenflesk demoralizing Cordal with a fresh goal in the opening minute.

Boys in Blue and Gold

Cordal’s Kieran O’Donoghue scored one more point for the boys in blue and gold but from that point on the Cordal side were in deep defence.

Referee Christy Crowley blew the whistle on a crushing defeat.

Cordal were behind fifteen points at 1-7 to Glenflesk’s 3-17. Hard luck lads on being knocked out early into the Bill Tangney Cup.
