The game went right down the final wire, as Westmeath trailed by a single point, and were looking to find an equaliser and keep themselves in the game. It never came, however, and it was the Rebels that came out on top.
Rebels take the lead
McCarthy also looked to be in for a goal, but she was unlucky as her efforts hit the crossbar.
Cork prove too strong for Westmeath
Westmeath put up a good fight, but Cork had too much scoring power. Further scores came from Sugure and McCarthy to push Cork out in front with a five-point lead.
It looked liked Westmeath weren’t going to be able to turn things around, but they worked hard, and prevented some scoring chances for Cork.
When Pamela Greville was awarded a 20m free, the sliotar found the back of the net, and there was real hope that Westmeath could still be in the game.
However, it wasn’t to be, as they couldn’t manage to score an equaliser and it was enough for the Rebels to take their victory. The final scoreline was Cork 8 points, Westmeath 1-4.
This is a second League victory in a row for Cork, who will now look to go one step further in the second-tier Championship this summer.
