July 4 - Senior Hurling: Cork v Galway
After Ruth had extended Cork’s lead to four points, Galway had a chance to get within one when Shane Maher was brought down in the box. Maher himself stepped up to take the shot, but it was saved and scrambled away. Galway, however, did narrow the gap with points from Murphy, Stephen Dineen, and James Dowling. PeterMoloney put Cork back up by two with a point, but Maher and Murphy brought Galway level with a point each. After going for a goal with a 21-yard free – and missing, Eoin McCormack again put Cork ahead, but it was Galway who had more down the stretch. Willie Hyland put a great strike between the posts, and an O’Dwyer free put Galway ahead. Maher made sure with the final score of the game. Much disappointment for Cork as a big win just slipped from their grasp.
