Watch: Cork U20s Make Up For Defensive Howler With Outrageous Volley

Watch: Cork U20s Make Up For Defensive Howler With Outrageous Volley
By Gary Connaughton

Talk about a game bursting into life. Today's All-Ireland U20 Football Final between Dublin and Cork was a highly anticipated affair, with two hugely exciting teams set to come head to head.

Coming into this one, the teams had scored 12 and 11 goals respectively in this year's championship. We expected to see a few green flags raised as a result.

Dublin would get the first of the day after only 11 minutes, and it was thanks to some calamitous mistakes at the back from Cork. A questionable short kick-out was followed up by some poor handling from the corner back, before the goalkeeper then failed to deal with a fairly tame shot from Ciaran Archer.

It looked like Cork could be dead and buried at that point, but they struck straight back.

It came via a cracking volley from Blake Murphy, who made the most of excellent buildup play from Mark Cronin.

We were only getting started. Mark Cronin then got a goal of his own, showing quick feet to turn in from the end line and bury one in the bottom corner.

They scored their third of the game a minute later, although this one was much less glamorous.
