Creedon double fires up St Vals

St Vals will meet last year’s champions Inch Rovers in the final of the Cork Ladies’ Football Championship, after they hammered Éire Óg at CIT yesterday.

The Kilmurry side conceded the first two points against last year’s intermediate champions but settled into the game with Caoimhe Creedon leading the line well for Vals.

Creedon scored a pair of first-half goal as Vals posted 2-9 before a youthful Éire Óg scored their third point of the day in reply.

Eimear Scally led the way for Éire Óg but Briege Corkery and Louise Coholon dominated the middle for a relentless Vals, for whom Creedon and centre-forward Jean Lucey topped the scoring stakes, as they ran out 4-16 to 0-6 winners.

However, the headline act of yesterday’s ‘feast of football’ in CIT was the senior B final between Mourneabbey and Clonakilty, a game which turned into the O’Sullivan show.

The youngest of the O’Sullivan sisters, Doireann, put Mourneabbey into an immediate lead with a goal, although Jenny Quinn netted in reply. However, a goal by Laura Fitzgerald was followed by a 25th-minute Ciara O’Sullivan green flag which helped the favourites to a 3-6 to 1-2 half-time lead.

Clonakilty put in a spirited performance and managed to halve the deficit in the second half, with Ciara McCarthy netting. However, Mourneabbey ran out deserved winners, 3-11 to 2-7, with Roisín O’Sullivan lifting the trophy while sister Ciara was named player of the match.

Meanwhile, Douglas and St Michael’s will meet in the junior B final, Douglas comfortably defeated Dromtarriffe (6-12 to 1-10) while their city neighbours beat Mallow (1-11 to 2-3).

In the junior C semi-finals, Lisgoold took victory over Muintir Bhaire (5-6 to 1-6) and Bishopstown overcame the challenge of Castlemagner (3-9 to 2-8).
