Cleary nets for rebels

LADIES FOOTBALL: Defending champions Cork collected their first league victory of the season at the expense of Munster rivals Kerry yesterday.

Cork ran out 1-16 to 1-9 winners against the Kingdom in this Division 1 encounter but the visitors trailed by just two points, 1-7 to 0-8 at half-time, with Nollaig Cleary's goal after 10 minutes Cork the edge.

In Division 2, Sligo will be disappointed that they didn't take maximum points from yesterday's drawn encounter with Down at Kevinsfort in Sligo Town.

The Yeats County led by nine points at half-time, 2-8 to 1-2, but a dramatic second-half fightback secured a 2-10 to 2-10 draw for Down.
