Mackey and Burns too hot for Dubs

Published 08/07/2013 | 05:00

Cork and Offaly will participate in a straight shootout for a place in the Liberty Insurance championship semi-finals after both maintained their 100pc records with victories over Dublin and Tipperary respectively.

Last year's runners-up were much too strong for a disappointing Dublin outfit, registering a 5-23 to 0-4 win at Pairc Ui Rinn.

Paudie Murray's side had seven different scorers in a consummate team performance. Katrina Mackey led the way with 2-3, with Sile Burns notching 2-2.

Offaly had to work much harder for their 1-15 to 0-10 success in Banagher. Tipperary played with fierce intensity in the first half and with the wind at their backs and Sarah Fryday in tremendous form, they led by 0-6 to 0-4 at half-time.

But Elaine Dermody's goal sparked Offaly into life and they pulled away.

It's all to play for in Group 1 as All-Ireland champions Wexford suffered their first defeat of the campaign, 0-10 to 0-8 to a Galway team that desperately needed the win having lost their opening tie.

The winners had the wind in their favour in the first half and with the magnificent Niamh McGrath slotting five points, including three from play, they led by 0-8 to 0-2 at the interval.

Wexford battled back in the second half, but Niamh Kilkenny hit her second point late on to steer Galway over the line.

Kilkenny remain in the box seat of a hugely competitive group after beating Derry 6-12 to 1-5 at Ashbourne.

Denise Gaule carried on her recent top form when bagging a hat-trick, while Shelly Farrell grabbed a brace and Emma Comerford also raised a green flag.
