It was a superb performance from Cork, but many in the stands and watching at home on tv were probably thinking it was going to be a long day after Tom Gray’s Dublin went ahead by 1-06 to 0-00. Brian O’Leary and Ciaran Archer making it 0-02 to 0-00 after 2 minutes. Dublin kicked four more points before Archer got Dublin’s only goal of the game, to be fair it was very lucky as his effort for a point fell short and went in through the legs of Josh O’Keeffe. However, Cork piled on the pressure and upped the intensity and were back level within 7 minutes of that last score from Dublin. Blake Murphy netting after 13 minutes, there were more goals to come though with Mark Cronin and Colm O’Callaghan raising green flags by 18 minutes. The sides were level a couple of more times before Gore, O’Mahony and O’Connell helped Cork into a two-point lead at half time.
Dublin were back on level terms when Ciaran Archer and Brian O’Leary fired over but it was Cork who outscored their opponents 0-10 to 0-02 with some superb point taking. Damien Gore, Fionn Herlihy and Jack Murphy coming to the fore for the Rebels.
