Galway step it up in second-half

Galway 3-10 Cork 1-15

Galway produced a rousing second-half rally to defeat Cork at Nenagh on Saturday.

Trailing by three points at half time (1-9 to 2-3), a goal by centre-back Nicola Ward, added to three-pointers by Aoibhinn Joyce and Emma Reaney in the opening half, were crucial in deciding the game. The Cork full-forward line were dominant throughout, contributing 1-13 of their tally but the goals made the difference for the Tribeswomen.
