Report

Quarter-Final – Corofin 3-8 Fulham Irish 1-4

Fulham Irish raced out to an early lead, scoring a goal from Marty Hughes, and a point in the first four minutes, but Corofin replied with two goals in quick succession from Jason Leonard and Colin Brady to stamp their authority on the match. Ian Burke added another goal for the Galway side as they went into the half-time break leading by 3-3 to 1-3. There were less scores in the second half as both Corofin and the Londoners built up their wides tallies, however the lack of competitive mactches meant Fulham’s early hopes of a surprise win were dealt a fatal blow. Corofin won by 10 points in the end, 3-8 to 1-4 to book a semi-final spot against Moorefield.
