Watch: Michael Quinlivan Shreds Cork Defence To Score Superb Solo Goal
By Gavin Cooney

In the first half of their Division Two opener at Páirc Ui Chaoimh, Michael Quinlivan found himself bearing down on goal, with a single defender between him and the goalkeeper. Predictably, the defender was skinned before he had the time to fret about the consequences of his positioning, only to see Quinlivan inexplicably skew the ball high and wide with the goal at his mercy.

Quinlivan, however, was not in the mood for letting Cork off the hook twice. In the second half, Quinlivan found himself isolated against Micheal McSweeney. Accelerating toward the goal, Quinlivan shrugged off the challenge of McSweeney - whose blood he had already twisted - and then finished with aplomb, curling home with his right foot.

Cork Tipperary

Quinlivan's strike came in between a brace for Tipp's Liam McGrath. His second goal was precisely guided into the top corner, whereas the first was blasted into the same position:

Cork showed admirable tenacity and physicality to lead at half-time, and should have converted their strong start into more scoreboard dominance: Stephen Sherlock tame penalty was easily saved by Evan Comerford on the stroke of half-time.

Tipp were a far slicker attacking outfit, however, and they ultimately deserved their six-point win, doing so on a scoreline of 3-16 to 1-16.
