Cork Senior Hurling Championship 1st Round
Davis College, Mallow 2-8 MICC, Dunmanway 0-11
Davis College emerged winners after a very tight battle with MICC Dunmanway on Tuesday 6th October on a scoreline of 2-8 to 0-11. The game was held in a windswept Mallow which made scoring difficult for both teams. Danny Buckley got the scoring off to a start 30 seconds in with a fine point from the left corner from an acute angle. Dunmanway responded immediately from the puck out with a good point from the left wing. Eoghan Buckley and Danny Buckley tacked on two more points before Dunmanway hit back with another point to ensure the minimum between the sides after 4 minutes. It was the next ten minutes that would prove vital for Davis College in the winning of this match as they hit 1-3 without reply. Darragh Kennefick, an Aaron Woods long range free and a quickfire goal and a point from Danny Buckley meant Davis College led 1-6 to 2 points after 13 minutes. Dunmanway showed some resilience as they hit the next four points and began to take control in the middle third of the field. Davis College were guilty of wasting some scoring opportunities as they hit 7 wides in this period. Davis College got their first score in almost twenty minutes when Darragh Kennefick showed some bravery to score an injury time goal right before the half time whistle to ensure Davis College held a six point advantage at half time, 2-6 to 0-6.
Dunmanway again resumed the second half with assertion and put over three points in the first 13 minutes of the half before Aaron Woods stopped the rot with a free on the twenty minute mark. Dunmanway missed some long range opportunities before adding two more points to leave just two points in it with 7 minutes remaining. Both teams looked desperately for the next score but it took an injury time free from Aaron Woods to ensure the win was safe for Davis College after a titanic battle.
