Thirteen-man Cork gained bragging rights over Kerry with a 1-12 to 0-12 defeat of their arch rivals in a fiery Allianz GAA National League Division One clash at Pairc Ui Rinn on Saturday night. The Rebels had debutant Noel Galvin sent off for a second yellow card, while Kerry’s Paul Galvin’s and Corkman Eoin Cadogan were both shown red cards for an off-the-ball incident in the first half. However, a far more experienced Cork side coped manfully with 13 men and finished impressively to hold out for a three-point win. Eire Og clubman Daniel Goulding was irresistible for the home side, scoring six points from play, while Paul Kerrigan grabbed his third goal of the league campaign to date to set the Rebels on their way in the fourth minute.

Kerrigan gave Cork the perfect start when he rifled the ball past Brendan Kealy after a flowing Cork move. Paudie Kissane, Nicholas Murphy and Fintan Goold all exchanged passes before Kerrigan found the back of the net. Noel Galvin’s Cork debut took a nightmarish turn when referee Maurice Deegan showed him a second yellow card for a high challenge on Kieran Donaghy after 19 minutes. The game’s most contentious incident came two minutes later, when Deegan showed red cards to Kerry’s Paul Galvin and Cork defender Cadogan after the pair became involved in an off-the-ball wrestling match. Cork took a 1-4 to 0-6 lead into the half-time break, but a quickfire double from the boot of BJ Keane on the resumption of play had Kerry level. Donnacha Walsh nudged them ahead in the 40th minute, but Cork’s star man, Goulding, then found his range and terrorised the Kerry defence for the remainder of the game. Goulding fired over three points from all angles in a ten-minute period, while Michael Shields popped up in attack to put Cork three points up going into the closing stages. Kerry substitute David O’Callaghan grabbed two points back for the Kingdom, but Goulding and Kerrigan hit back to maintain Cork’s unbeaten run in the league.
