Cormac's claim Gaynor Cup
Published 26/05/2015 | 00:00
St Cormac's 3, Cushintown AFC 0: The ability to take chances in front of goal was the main difference between the sides as St. Cormac's lifted the Gaynor Cup for the second time in the club's history.
Cushinstown started well and enjoyed the better of the possession in the opening 20 minutes but, despite creating some decent chances, they were unable to convert them into goals.
St. Cormac's came more and more into the game and just on the half-hour mark, Caitríona Roban struck to give them the lead. Bernie McCarthy came on just before half-time and made an immediate impact, with the Cushinstown defence finding her a bit of a handful to manage.
Early in the second-half, she struck to make it 2-0 and with 20 minutes remaining she made it 3-0 and killed off an entertaining final as a contest.
Cushinstown will be disappointed to have lost 3-0 as the game was closer than the scoreline suggests, but St. Cormac's were the better team with Bernie McCarthy collecting a well-deserved player of the match award.
