Cordal followed up their round two win with two more points on the board as they traveled to north Kerry to face Ballylongford last Saturday evening. Both teams fielded 13-a-side for this one as Ballylongford were short a number of regulars. Conditions were good but the going was a little soft but it didn’t affect the bounce of the ball on the day too much.

  1. Cordal got the scoring underway from the off and it was their in form scoring midfielder, Brian Reidy, who brought his shooting boots with him again as he hit 1-01 inside the opening 4 minutes. They followed this up with two more from Philip O’Connor and one from Niall Ó Ciardubhain to command an early lead.

Joe McCarthy hit the back of the net for Ballylongford, after he found a lot of space, on the ten minute mark to register their first score and they followed this up with a point a couple of minutes later. After both sides traded points the visitors went on a quick scoring spree, which was their best passage of play in the game, with points from Niall (3), Philip (2) and Brian (1) to leave the half time score 1-10 to 1-02.

The second half started with both sides trading scores again before Cordal hit five on the bounce again, Philip (3) and Niall (2), to widen the gap even further. This appeared to put the tie to bed but Bally found the net once more to put a little gloss on the scoreboard. The ref blew the whistle after Brian Reidy pointed again to top off another good day out for the boys in blue and gold. Final score read Cordal 1-17 to Ballylongford’s 2-04. Well done to our boys on a decent performance, they now sit with four points with their aim of promotion on track.

Cordal Team: Sean Óg Ó Ciardubháin, John Brosnan, Padraig Brosnan, Gary O’Leary, Johnny O’Connor, Daniel O’Connor, Brian Reidy (1-04); Donal McCarthy, Kieran O’Donoghue, Philip O’Connor (0-7); Niall O’Ciardubháin (0-6); Gearoid O’Leary and Michael Flynn.
