Cork City 1 Bowez 1
Cork City 1 - 1 Bohemians
Cork City's 100% home league record finally came to an end, as
Bohemians held City to a 1-1 draw. The 7,000 City fans that had
gathered in the Cross had little to cheer about for much of the first
half, as the Dubs dictated the play. In truth, we were outclassed in
the first half and Gunther seemed not to know what to do (deja vu?).
Glen Crowe had a volley well saved by Mick Devine early on, but on 25
minutes, the Jackdaw gave Bohs a deserved lead, when he converted a
cross from Bobby Ryan.
The visitors continued to dominate the first half, before suddenly,
City were back in it. A free-kick from Deccie Daly was fired home from
close range by Dan Murray. It was the on-loan Londoner's second goal
for City, having also grabbed one at Bray last weekend. Minutes later,
John O'Flynn's rocket from just outside the box bounced back into play
off the angle of the woodwork.
In the second half, George O'Callaghan was given a straight red card
for stamping on Colin Hawkins, although the challenge seemed innocuous
to much of the home crowd. It was Honker Hawkins moaning to the Fourth
official that got Georgie sent off. Has that langer Hawkins ever played
in the Cross without pissing off the whole crowd?
10-man City had chances to win it in the second half, especially when
Billy Woods' header went wide after a Dave Warren corner. The draw
means that City are still nine points off the lead with a game in hand,
on Monday night against St. Patrick's Athletic at Turner's Cross
