It finished honours even on Sunday when West Cork’s U13 side welcomed their South Tipperary counterparts to Douglas.

Having lost out to Cork in their first game of the SFAI Subway Championship, South Tipp sought to up the intensity in their play from the first minute on Sunday.

With the level of competition on the pitch extremely high, Lee Hayes was forced into making some impressive saves in the South Tipp goal, while Julian Kerton went closest for the visitors up the other end.

Having pulled away from his marker, he headed goalwards, but it was straight at the West Cork netminder.

In the second half the level of good football continued, and with seven minutes of the second period gone the visitors finally got their noses in front.


Jack Delaney teed up Senan Butler who picked his spot early, sending the ball across the goalkeeper and into the top corner.

That goal further upped the tempo from West Cork, and they were awarded a penalty five minutes later, which was converted from the spot.

South Tipp had some debutants on the day, including Lee Hayes, Bill Quirke and Tommy O’Connor, and all contributed to the strong performance.

The final minutes of Sunday’s tie were filled with attacking from both teams, but in the end a point apiece was how it finished.

Next up for South Tipperary is a refixed game against Waterford on January 28th.
