Scenes At Turner's Cross As Seanie Maguire Fires Cork To Europa League Win

Scenes At Turner's Cross As Seanie Maguire Fires Cork To Europa League Win
By PJ Browne Updated

Cork City beat Levadia Tallinn 4-2 at Turner's Cross on Thursday night as they progressed to the second qualifying round of the Europa League 6-2 on aggregate.

Despite the comfortable scoreline at the final whistle, it was a game where Cork suffered a scare. They went into the break 2-1 down, leading just 3-2 on aggregate against a team they to whom they looked far superior in last week's first leg. A Karl Sheppard goal was Cork's only reply to two first have strikes for the Estonian side.

Nerves would be settled in the second half by a Seanie Maguire hat-trick. He grabbed an equaliser shortly after half-time. His second and third goals would come in quick succession in the final five minutes of the game.

Maguire's second of the night made him Cork's all-time leading goal scorer in Europe, a nice record to take before he heads off to Preston.

His hat-trick goal was met with jubilant scenes from the home supporters.

Cork will face Cypriot side AEK Larnaca, the former team of new Leeds boss Thomas Christiansen, in the next round.
