Senior championship playoffs were not on the minds of these teams who met Saturday evening in Canton, Mass. Cork are pretty much out of contention, however, should the Gaels win their final two games there is a chance of the intermediate semi-finals. As it was, the Gaels played the better football over the 60 minutes on an evening that was ideal for football. The field had a little give, humidity was low and there was a slight breeze to keep things cool.
