Republic of Ireland manager Martin O’Neill praised the second half efforts of his side, as they came from a goal ...Sun, Jun 11 2017
Sean Maguire scored twice as Cork City overcame Limerick comfortably in the Munster Derby at Turner's Cross on Friday night, live on Eir Sport.
The Preston-bound striker opened the scoring midway through the first half as he glanced home a header from Karl Sheppard's right-wing cross.
The lead lasted barely a minute, however, as from the kick-off former City winger Chiedozie Ogbene was fouled by Mark McNulty and Rodrigo Tosi converted the resulting spot-kick.
Limerick thought they'd made it to the break on equal terms only to see Stephen Dooley produce a moment of magic, controlling on the edge of the box before amashing his shot in off the post.
And disaster struck straight from Limerick's kick-off for the second half as Robbie Williams left a pass short to Brendan Clarke and Maguire nipped in to round the keeper and make it 3-1.
And there was still time for the goal of the night as Jimmy Keohane wrapped things up six minutes from the end with a spectacular curling shot that left Clarke helpless between the sticks.
