They used this momentum to score a further four points in the first ten minutes of the game. Mikey Boyle quickly dominated the forward lines for Ballyduff scoring a further five points for their team. Cordal were shaken but Kieran O’Donoghue boosted morale when he scored a point in the 18th minute.
The 22nd minute saw Philip O’Connor score another point from play and, by the 26th minute, Cordal had three points with another nice score from Kieran O’Donoghue.
Cordal Stronger in Second Half
Ballyduff’s Mikey Boyle and Barry O’Grady ended the half with two further points for their side. The half time score left Cordal eleven points down with 0-03 to Ballyduff’s 1-11.
Cordal came back in the second half much stronger. They seemed to have found their spirit in the dressing room and had a much better half.
Jack Goulding scored the first point of the half and Mikey Boyle added more fuel to Ballyduff’s fire with another goal.
This drove the Cordal boys on further to turn the game around and the next fifteen minutes were dominated with Cordal scores.
Kieran O’Donoghue began the uphill battle with two points scored from frees in the fourth and seventh minutes of the half.
Philip O’Connor added three points to the scoresheet giving more hope to the Cordal team. Niall O’Ciardubhain also scored a nice point in the 12th minute.
Array of Scores

Mikey Boyle scored again with a point for Ballyduff but Cordal’s Padraig O’Connell made sure to give the home team one final point in the closing minutes before two further points were added to the Ballyduff scoresheet by Jack Goulding in the 31st minute.
Mikey Boyle closed the scoring after a very strong game on their part.
Cordal were defeated with 0-12 to Ballyduff’s 2-15 but they showed huge spirit and determination and made sure to prove themselves as a very able team after their strong offensive in the second half.
